Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treats Scleroderma

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treats Scleroderma

 

Safe, effective, and non-invasive

Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease affecting the skin and other organs of the body, meaning that the body’s immune system is causing inflammation and other abnormalities in these tissues. The main finding in scleroderma is thickening and tightening of the skin and inflammation and scarring of many body parts, leading to problems in the lungs, kidneys, heart, intestinal system and other areas. There is still no cure for scleroderma, but effective treatments for some forms of the disease are available.

FACTS

  • Scleroderma differs from person to person but can be very serious.
  • There are medications, as well as steps individuals can take, to ease the symptoms of Raynaud’s phenomenon, skin problems and heartburn.
  • Effective treatments are available for those with severe disease, including acute kidney disease, pulmonary hypertension, lung inflammation and gastrointestinal problems.
  • It is important to recognize and treat organ involvement early on to prevent irreversible damage.

COMPLICATIONS OF SCLERODERMA AND HBOT

Scleroderma is a chronic connective tissue; one of the most common symptoms is hardening or tightening of the skin. Other symptoms of Scleroderma include joint pain, a heightened reaction to cold temperatures and acid reflux, in addition to potential complications to the heart, lungs or kidney.

Complications of systemic sclerosis include the following: Digital infarctions, Pulmonary hypertension, Myositis, Renal failure, Wound infections.

In this case, HBOT reduces edema/inflammation, enhances oxygen availability to injured tissue, promotes fibroblast proliferation/collagen synthesis, decreasing fibrosis, enhances antibiotic efficacy in cases of infections, reduces incidence of infection due to the enhancement of leukocyte oxidative killing and increases tensile strength of healed tissue as some studies show.

What are the benefits of HBOT?

Wave

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life for the patient in many areas when standard treatment isn’t working

Can HBOT help you?

Wave

Yes. It can benefit conditions where low oxygen levels (hypoxia) and inflammation are present

The Oxygen for Life

Wave

Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation
