Case Study Utilizing Hyperbaric Therapy | Fibromyalgia Hyperbaric
Treating Fibromyalgia with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Diane, was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after an auto accident that left her hospitalized. She developed intense pain in her neck, shoulders and back and was confined to her bed much of the time to cope with the pain. She began taking pain medication, various vitamins, herbs and homeopathic remedies, which lowered the pain enough to manage day by day.
After giving birth, Diane’s symptoms worsened dramatically and this time, nothing touched the pain. She was chronically fatigued, unable to sleep, severely depressed and unable to function. She went to countless physicians, chiropractors, osteopaths, acupuncturists, but no one could help her this time. Her husband found a physician with portable hyperbaric chambers and brought her in for a session.
Diane immediately went into a deep sleep her first session in a hyperbaric chamber. She came out groggy, but more relaxed and then went home and slept for 10 hours, something she had never done before. After a few sessions, she had more energy, was able to sleep well and had significant reduction in pain and muscle tension. Her depression lifted and she soon went full days without experiencing pain. Diane has been off pain medications for a year and has not needed treatment, other than hyperbaric, to keep the pain away.
