Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treats Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is the medical name for a disorder characterized by damaged peripheral nerves.

These nerves are responsible for transmitting information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to the rest of the body.

When these nerves are damaged, the transmission of these signals is disrupted, resulting in symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain, and muscle weakness, particularly in the hands and feet.

Peripheral neuropathic pain is a complex disease that is treated mainly by addressing the underlying cause.

Emerging evidence suggests that Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treats peripheral neuropathy and reliably alleviates its painful symptoms.

It’s all to do with the role that oxygen plays in healing the body, specifically the nerve cells.
