Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease of the large intestine, characterized by inflammation of its lining and the development of sores and ulcerations. An abnormal immune system response in which white blood cells misinterpret food and bacteria as invading substances, this condition is discomforting and can become painful. Symptoms include bloody stools, frequent bowel movements and debilitating abdominal pain.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) benefits patients suffering from ulcerative colitis by increasing the oxygen levels in plasma and tissues which reduces inflammation and swelling, allowing the tissue to heal.
HBOT for Ulcerative Colitis
HBOT benefits patients with ulcerative colitis in the following ways:
- Reduces inflammation
- Decreases swelling
