Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in sport

Whatever sport you are involved with, Henshaw Hyperbaric Chambers could support you.

HBOT itself is not a new therapy, however it is rapidly increasing in popularity, particularly in those involved with sports – and we are seeing many athletes adding Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy into their overall recovery programme.

Short and long-term health concerns caused by playing sports are a substantial concern among players, coaches and the players’ families. Whatever sport you are involved with, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chambers could support you.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the use of oxygen in a pressurised environment. Increased pressure allows oxygen to dissolve and saturate more effectively in the blood system, which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects.

We’ll share some of the key benefits of HBOT for sportspeople below. But if you’d like more details head over to www.henshawsport.co.uk or download the HBOT in Sport Guide here.


It wasn’t that long ago that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy was the preserve of divers only, helping them overcome decompression sickness. Fast forward to today – the world of elite sports is now one of the biggest users of HBOT, helping stars of many sports heal faster, train harder and recover quicker.

The list of different sports that recognise the power of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is growing rapidly, with some clubs and associations having their own treatment centres.
