How hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help with radiation damage
Learn the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for radiation damage and delayed radiation injury
Radiation therapy is one of the most effective treatments for people fighting cancer. Unfortunately, it can cause complications.
The radiation that is used to kill cancer cells also destroys normal cells in the surrounding tissues and nearby blood vessels. As a result, many cancer patients often face delayed radiation injuries for months or even years after treatment.
What are the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for radiation damage?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been successfully used in the treatment of delayed radiation injury for over 30 years.
HBOT allows more oxygen to reach areas that have been damaged by radiation and helps prevent tissues from dying from lack of blood. The extra oxygen in your body aids new blood vessel formation and improves natural infection control.
HBOT can also help to reduce pain, decrease swelling and accelerate wound healing.
