The hyperbaric chamber and its effect on injuries

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has different effects on injuries: prevention and acceleration of recovery.

By increasing the concentration of oxygen in the blood, the oxygenation and supply of nutrients to the muscles are improved. This situation leads to greater resistance to fatigue, a lower likelihood of rupture or injury, and in the case of injury, accelerates recovery.

Injuries usually have a determined recovery time. This time is not exact but is influenced by factors such as the physical state of the injured person or the way each organism reacts. It is proven that therapeutic hyperbaric oxygen treatments decrease rehabilitation times for different types of injuries, whether they are muscular, joint, bone or ligament injuries.

With oxygen therapy, there is better tissue nutrition, therefore, the ability to recover increases considerably.


Prevention of sports injuries
Improved sports performance
Better fatigue resistance
Better physical recovery of the athlete
Postoperative osteoarticular and muscle injuries
Decreased injury rehabilitation times (Muscle, joint, bone or ligament)

Improvement of sports performance with oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric chamber therapy is not only useful for injured or fatigued athletes, but also for those who are healthy. By using hyperbaric oxygen therapy before intense exercise, several goals are achieved:
Optimizing cerebral circulation, increasing oxygen concentration at the muscular level, and strengthening the immune system. In addition, red blood cells are stimulated, resulting in a significant improvement in physical condition.

It is a treatment regularly used by elite athletes, but it is not necessary to practice sports professionally to take advantage of this type of treatment.


After 5 consecutive sessions, I feel lighter and with the sense of well-being that was explained to me at the beginning of the whole process. Thank you, Hyperbaric Center of Cascais!

I highly recommend the Hyperbaric Center of Cascais! Thanks to the Hyperbaric Center of Cascais, all the problems I had, including intestinal injuries and other complications derived from the oncological disease I have, disappeared after 20 sessions. My quality of life has improved significantly. My sincere thanks to all the excellent professionals who work at this center! Without hyperbaric medicine, I would be condemned to a life of pain and suffering characteristic of those who suffer from an oncological disease.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatments have been extremely beneficial for my plastic surgery patients, especially in complicated cases of nasal and facial revision. We encourage our patients to take advantage of the benefits in their recovery by undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment.
