News: Rotherham United players often use Oxygen Therapy at the Centre to help their injuries to heal

Rotherham United players often use Oxygen Therapy at the Centre to help their injuries to heal. Paul Gambles, their Head of Medical Services, says…

“Oxygen Treatment is a safe, effective , and non-invasive treatment which can be used for various conditions, gaining considerable attention among sports medicine specialists for its potential to accelerate healing. It has been shown that using o2 therapy in conjunction with physiotherapy can decrease the time taken for injuries to repair meaning that some players are able to return and competitive play earlier than just using physiotherapy alone.”

“Oxygen is an essential substance in the repair of any tissue and the additional O2 provided can improve the repair, particularly of muscle and ligament tears, because the blood supply is often significantly damaged. Fracture healing may be accelerated, and it can help eliminate fatigue and recover stamina, it has also been seen to be beneficial in:

Head injuries and concussion
Spinal cord injuries
General wellness

“Oxygen therapy is taken using an individual oxygen mask, either in a pressure-controlled chamber (as seen in the photo) or at normal pressure depending on the condition.

“Athletes from various disciplines and levels of sport are now starting to use the facility with great results. Vass is just one of many of our players who has been helped by this treatment, with Cheo and Robbo being amongst others to use it this season and last.”
