Off-Label HBOT: Arthritis

Arthritis is so broad a disease state, with so many treatment options, we can't see hyperbaric oxygen ever gaining any real currency. Yet we find, combined with our reading of the medical literature on other chronic pain disorders, rather promising clinical evidence that HBOT can help reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. And we suppose any drug-free alternative might be welcome news for many of the 19 million patients with rheumatoid (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA), fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, and more than 100 other forms of this devastating disease—the leading cause of disability in the US today.
