Off the Football Field and Into the Hyperbaric Chamber

Here in Chicagoland we know it's way too late in the season to save the Bears. But here's hoping Matt Forte finds a speedy recovery in a borrowed hyperbaric oxygen chamber for his Grade 2 sprain of the medial collateral ligament in the right knee. Coaches and trainers aim to get him back into the lineup by Christmas. Read "Forte doing all he can to heal quickly: Bears running back using ex-teammate's hyperbaric chamber" in the Chicago Tribune. Forte is using a chamber owned by defensive tackle Tommie Harris of the San Diego Chargers. The article names the more prominent NFL players using HBOT (or too often, mild HBOT) for performance enhancement and postinjury rehabilitation.
