This study demonstrates the advantages of utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy following fracture injuries. The authors used a 6 week hyperbaric intensive protocol consisting of 30 sessions at 2.0 ATA. The outcome showed showed accelerated fracture healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In addition, there was a higher amount of type 1 collagen tissue, leading to stronger healing of the fracture <view study>
