CYSTITIS AND HBOT
As we know inflammation is a target for HBOT, so it will help reduce the urgency of having to urinate, increases bladder capacity, minimize pain, reduce inflammation.
This results in hyper oxygenation of blood and tissues which promotes angiogenesis, collagen synthesis, epithelization and improved leukocyte function will provide an enhanced ground for healing in this condition.
