Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other chronic pain disorders.
Some physicians may prescribe HBOT off-label as an adjunct or alternative to drug treatments and other common arthritis therapies.
Hyperbaric oxygen may provide temporary symptom relief for some people with some forms of arthritis. Compared to other popular and effective treatment
options, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may never be cost-effective or practical for the daily management of such a lifelong chronic disease.
Still, if further research demonstrates the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a drug-free regimen might offer a welcome alternative
for some physicians and patients to consider.
