Chronic Pain

The Research

Evidence showing the healing relationship between Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy & Chronic Pain

Chronic pain conditions effect many New Zealanders. It is a challenging condition, and can leave people suffering feeling completely helpless. Often people believe that pain can be healed by treating a particular part of the body, however with chronic pain the tissue is no longer the trouble, but instead it is the brain. The pain is very real, as are the symptoms, but for some reason the brain is now stuck on high alert and sending faulty pain messages to the body. To heal the chronic pain condition – you must heal the brain.

As Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Pulse ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy work on the nervous system and the brain, they are able to offer relief to chronic pain suffers. They also help to teach the nervous system a sense of relaxation and calm, which is also what is required to heal the condition

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Being Used To Treat Cluster Headaches, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Migraines, Headaches & More

“Chronic pain is one of the frequently encountered clinical problems that is difficult to cure. Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy has been reported in chronic pain syndromes with promising results. In this review, we focus on the effectiveness of HBO in fibromyalgia syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, myofascial pain syndrome, migraine, and cluster headaches. HBO may be beneficial if appropriate patients are selected. HBO is a reliable method of treatment

Hyperbaric oxygen is a promising treatment modality in chronic pain management. Physicians dealing with chronic pain syndromes must consider HBO when conventional treatments fail.”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: A New Treatment for Chronic Pain?

“Twenty-five studies examining the role of HBOT in animal models of pain and human clinical trials were found and reviewed for this narrative review.

 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been shown to reduce pain using animal models. Early clinical research indicates HBOT may also be useful in modulating human pain; however, further studies are required to determine whether HBOT is a safe and efficacious treatment modality for chronic pain conditions.”
