Hyperbaric Treatment for Fibromyalgia

The subjects of the study were evaluated on various criteria such as pain tolerance, tender points count, as well as several areas affecting quality of life. Researchers observed significant improvements across all areas in participants who went through hyperbaric treatment. Up to date, this is the only study done on the use of hyperbaric treatment for fibromyalgia. Thus, further research is warranted in order to turn this treatment into an acceptable medical treatment for fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, only then, will it be covered by insurance.

However, there are various non-medical facilities where you can simply pay for a session of hyperbaric treatment. You do not need any medical referral to experience this. A simple search online will enable you to locate the hyperbaric treatment facilities near you.

    It’s should be about choice, with pain medicine it’s a one side fit all. Some people need more and others need less. We nee better choices safer choices.

    Unfortunately for most patients this is not even close to being an affordable option and treatment locations are few and far between unless you are in a large city.

    I went and had a session of this last week, and it took all of my pain away. I am still painfree and not feeling like an old woman. I would certainly do it again.

    I had 10 treatment at a total cost of $1250. The improvement in fibromyalgia symptoms was minimal. I was told I would need about 40 treatments to see any serious results.
    I did, however, talk to several veterans with traumatic brain and other injuries as well as someone with Parkinson’s all who reported slow but substantial improvement with 40-80 treatments.

    I haven’t tried hyperbaric chamber treatment but I recall being at my best when I was able to regularly scuba dive which I guess is the same thing. I think I will give this a go. But it may need ongoing therapy and not be a permanent cure. Guess that takes time to establish in research.
