The common denominator of diseases and injuries is inflammation, shortage of oxygen and impaired blood flow. Because HBOT has anti-inflammatory properties, it oxidises the tissue and helps to create new blood vessels thus increasing blood flow. It is used for a wide and increasing number of conditions.
