Generally, HBOT is considered safe when administered under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional in a reputable facility. However, it’s essential to understand both the potential benefits and risks before undergoing treatment.
Here’s a breakdown of safety considerations:
Minimal side effects: Most people experience only mild, temporary side effects like ear pressure, fatigue, and sinus discomfort. These usually resolve quickly on their own or with simple measures.
Non-invasive and painless: The treatment itself is comfortable and does not involve needles or surgery.
No drug interactions: HBOT doesn’t interact with medications unless specifically noted by your doctor.
The number of sessions required depends on the condition and individual response. Typically, a treatment plan involving multiple sessions over several weeks is needed.
