A growing number of sports stars are using hyperbaric chambers for personal use especially for healing from injuries in games. A sports injury can be especially devastating for a professional athlete. Professional athletes sidelined because of injury can lose their standing in national rankings or their place on a team, and they risk their careers when they attempt to return to play before sufficient healing has taken place. Because professional athletes have so much at stake, many have turned to mild and personal hyperbaric oxygen therapy to speed recovery when they suffer an injury.
David Baumann of BHSN reported in a recent article that Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow is now one of the dozens of NFL players who have hyperbaric chambers.
BHSN interviewed Bill Schindler, the owner of Hyperbaric Therapy Center in Cumming, GA, who said Tebow arranged a deal with Oxy Health, a hyperbalic chamber manufacturer in February, 2010 in order to take control of a personal chamber. Schindler, who has sold over 190 hyperbaric chambers to NFL players, originally assisted Tebow in the installation of his Oxy Health chamber. “Tebow, like any professional athlete, needs treatment for his body, ” said Shindler.
Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps athletes at all skill levels heal quickly and get back to their favorite pursuit. Many sports injuries involve strains and sprains, which is quickly taken care of by personal hyperbaric chambers. Life-giving oxygen is able to reach the injury site so that cells can heal and the immune system can fully defend the body against harmful agents. Healing time is reduced significantly, and athletes get back into play faster.
