Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Fibromyalgia

Women with fibromyalgia were able to drastically reduce and even completely eliminate their use of pain medication after a treatment regimen in a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Fibromyalgia  chamber.Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome that can be accompanied by—and perhaps is related to—other physical and mental conditions that include fatigue, cognitive impairment, irritable bowel syndrome, and sleep disturbance.

The findings of a clinical trial show the painful condition improved in every one of the women who completed two months of the new therapy. Brain scans before and after treatment support the theory that abnormal conditions in pain-related areas of the brain may be responsible for the syndrome.

Pain in the brain

More than 90 percent of people diagnosed with the syndrome are women, says Eshel Ben-Jacob, adjunct professor of biosciences at Rice University and a professor of physics at Tel Aviv University.“Symptoms in about 70 percent of the women who took part have to do with the interpretation of pain in their brains,” he says. “They’re the ones who showed the most improvement with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Fibromyalgia treatment. We found significant changes in their brain activity.”
