How Does HBOT Help Stroke Recovery

The Science Behind The Oxygen & Pressure

Stroke is the leading cause of serious long-term adult disability, affecting over half of stroke survivors aged 65 and older, significantly reducing their mobility.

Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to help prevent stroke through several different mechanisms. It can be used to precondition the brain by stimulating angiogenesis, producing more circulatory pathways throughout the brain, and potentially decreasing the chance of stroke.

Hyperbarics has been shown to benefit post-stroke patients, as compromised blood flow to the affected brain tissue (penumbra) and its functionality are recoverable by introducing increased levels of oxygen and healing. The benefits of have been studied and shown to be effective even years after the initial stroke event.
