Hyperbaric: It does not cure most diseases. There are only a limited number of conditions that hyperbaric has shown to help as an adjunctive therapy including diabetic foot ulcer of a certain depth, radiation soft-tissue injury, chronic refractory osteomyelitis, aspergillosis of the sinuses, for examples. It has no place in the healing of patellar tendonitis according to the literature.

Hyperbaric Brain: There is no evidence that hyperbaric oxygen works on these types of problems. There are specialists that do offer this therapy to patients but you should ask about the research results before committing to this treatment regimen. Medicare does not cover this indication, so the personal cost and professional profit can be large.
A 38-year-old member asked:

Diabetic Foot Treat: Do not try to treat a diabetic foot infection with home remedies without at least having a professional observing as the consequences of an unsuccessful treatment can mean hospitalization, amputation or overwhelming sepsis and death. There are over 4000+ wound care products that are available so even among professionals, opinions vary. Attention to underlying causes of the ulceration are paramount
