Oxygen therapy in sport
In the Hyperbaric Clinic of Estepona we receive throughout the year many athletes who are looking to either reduce the recovery time from a sports injury or increase their sports performance with hyperbaric chamber sessions. From triathletes, to world-famous tennis players, to paddleball players… athletes of all disciplines have visited our centre in Estepona.
But why is this?
Hyperbaric medicine consists of supplying oxygen at a higher pressure than the atmospheric pressure in airtight chambers prepared for this purpose. The direct consequence of this treatment is increased oxygenation in the tissues, which results in a much faster recovery from the injuries. In the case of elite athletes, the sooner they recover, the sooner they can get back to full performance.
