Rheumatoid Arthritis

According to the Mayo Clinic, Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that can affect more than just your joints. In some people, the condition can damage a wide variety of body systems, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels.

An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your on body's tissues.

Unlike the wear-and-tear damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity.

How does HBOT help?

A 2016 study published in the journal Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine and also shared by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, concluded that HBOT usage among those with RA “may result in decreased joint pain, increased activity level, improvement in sleeping patterns and possibly a decreased need for standard rheumatologic medications, effectively reducing or avoiding the effects of immunosuppression.”

Lyme disease

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted to humans by infected deer ticks. While short term sufferers of Lyme report symptoms including bull’s-eye rash, fever, flu-like symptoms, migraines, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, a large number of cases are misdiagnosed and quickly develop into a more serious condition known as late disseminated Lyme.

Like most anaerobic bacteria, Borrelia Burgdorferi are unable to survive in oxygen rich environments.

How does HBOT help?

  • Assists in killing the bacteria
  • Improves symptoms associated with lyme disease, such as fatigue, insomnia, joint pain and problems with mobility


IBD stands for inflammatory bowel disease, which is an umbrella term used to describe disorders that cause chronic inflammation of your gastrointestinal (GI) tract. The two most common forms of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

How can HBOT help?

  • Decreases inflammation
  • Increases Oxygen delivery to the body
  • Reduces pain
  • Enhances the efficacy of medications
  • Kills bacteria

In a multi-center, 2017 study by Dulai et al., patients who were hospitalized for moderate to severe flareups of UC were placed in a double blind randomized study. There were a total of 18 patients treated, (10 HBOT, 8 sham treatments), in several medical centers including UC San Diego, Mayo Clinic, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. The patients were treated either with steroids and HBOT or steroids and a sham HBOT treatment. After 10 days of daily treatments, the HBOT group had a response of 80% vs. 25% for the sham group, and remission of 50% for the HBOT group vs. 0% for the sham group. Response to HBOT was seen in some patients as early as the third day of treatment.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE)

Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), is the most common type of lupus. SLE is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks its own tissues, causing widespread inflammation and tissue damage in the affected organs. It can affect the joints, skin, brain, lungs, kidneys, and blood vessels. There is no cure for lupus, but medical interventions and lifestyle changes can help control it.

How does HBOT help?

  • Reduces inflammation, swelling and edema which helps to decrease pain
  • Triggers angiogesis which assists with circulation
  • Eliminates bacteria and infection
  • Increases production of fibroblasts, which assists with wound healing
  • Decreases the need for standard medications


According to the Mayo Clinic, Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain and spinal cord process painful and nonpainful signals

How Does HBOT Help?

  • Decrease in pain
  • Improvement in sleep
  • Stimulates neuroplasticity
  • Rectifies abnormal brain activity in pain-related areas
