Parkinson's Disease

Benefits from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Studies have shown that hyperbaric oxygen treatment combined with other therapies is effective in improving the nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson's Disease. Clinical assessment scores for depression and anxiety, including Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS I), UPDRS II, Hanmilton Depression Rating Scale, and Hamiliton Anxiety Rating Scale, were improved following the hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

Some patients reported a decrease in tremors and an improvement in general well-being.
