While wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been around for a while, in recent years, its use and adoption in mainstream medicine has been steadily on the rise\u2014and for a reason. Let\u2019s admit it. Whether it was some fresh wound that we got while cutting onions in the kitchen or a deep, decaying wound resulting from some bacterial infection, many of us have had some type of physical wound in our lives. In athletic sports, wounds are almost a given. Consider that almost one in three of all childhood injuries is associated with athletic sports. According to the National Safety Council statistics, 5- to 14-year-olds experience injuries at higher rates than any other age group. And males get injured at rates that are twice that of females. Don\u2019t get this wrong; wounds can be frustrating\u2014and can significantly decrease quality of life. The following are some of the most common effects of wounds on quality of life. Lack of mobility Discomfort Pain Social isolation Lack of adequate sleep Unpleasant odor statistics Lack of the ability to work However, thanks to medical interventions, most wounds are treated relatively quickly. Almost 90% of injury victims are treated and immediately discharged. And healing with hyperbaric is increasingly becoming an essential part of this success.
