The Centre has treated several people with broken bones. Although there is still some controversy as to whether hyperbaric oxygen treatment is effective, first hand experience proves to us that it definitely helps speed up the time it usually takes to heal a broken bone.
The aim is to increase the supply of oxygen to the fracture site, which theoretically should improve healing.
We have had several customers who have MS and have fallen and broken bones. Where the bone is not in plaster, for instance at the shoulder, or the bone has been pinned, the results have been significant enough for fracture consultants to be impressed at the speed of healing.
The Centre also treats a speed-way rider who, when he breaks bones, will come in for treatment so he can get back on his bike and get earning again!
