Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for ALS
If you or a loved one is or has been diagnosed with ALS, it is important to work with a medical team to determine the best course of treatment. This may include a combination of medications, respiratory support, physical therapy, and other supportive care.
If you are considering Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for ALS as a treatment option, we encourage you to speak with a medical professional to learn more about the potential benefits and risks.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a promising treatment option for individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for ALS involves breathing high concentrations of oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber, which can improve symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. There is evidence to suggest that HBOT can reduce inflammation, improve blood flow and oxygen delivery to damaged nerve cells, and preserve the function of these cells in people with ALS.
While the evidence for the effectiveness of HBOT in treating ALS is still limited, early studies and anecdotal reports are promising and suggest that it is a valuable treatment option for individuals with this devastating disease.
