Hyperbaric oxygen

I think this is sometimes used to help RSD, but it's old research and very contentious as to whether its a con. Just posting this for information because of my view that some RSD is associated with incorrect healing of damaged collagen and subsequent incorrect nerve growth.

Increasing oxygen concentration in the body also stimulates the growth of cells of connective tissue, the fibroblasts, and the manufacture of collagen. ...The proliferation of fibroblasts to establish a collagen matrix is an essential first step in wound repair and the reconstruction of a blood supply to damaged tissue.
From :
Breathing new life into oxygen therapy: Hyperbaric oxygen may improve the treatment of wounds and infections. But proof is lacking and no one wants to pay for the research. 23 November 1991 by LESLEY NEWSON New Scientist Magazine issue 1796 page 50

Re: Hyperbaric oxygen

Posting something that is 20 years old will not help anyone.

Re: Hyperbaric oxygen


I agree with what you're saying up to a point, which is why I always try to include a full reference so people can make an informed judgement like you did. What I'm trying to do is collect up information as I find it and also link it together when I think there may be a link. This old info links to some more modern stuff I've posted here before. I'll try to find it and post it here. In future, if what I'm posting ties to previous stuff, I'll try to remember to give a proper ref.
