Migraines and Headaches
Patients report decreased headache pain with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In cases associated with a neurological manifestation, this may be alleviated as well but typically depends upon more treatments past initial headache relief. Studies suggest that approximately 70% of patients respond positively to hypberbaric oxygen in a range of 1.5 to 2.3 atmospheres of pressure. The main benefits of hyperbaric oxygen for headaches are that dilated arteries are constricted, relieving pain and overall decreasing cerebral edema.
