Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

I'm doing this to try to fix my peroneal tendonitis (ankle lower foot pain) that has been with me for 6 weeks now. Only two sessions into it but feel it is helping. I'll let you know how I feel after another 3 or  4 sessions. So what is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?  See video below.


  1. Where do you do it? Is it expensive?

  2. Hi Bob

    You can do it at sports clinics the name in Japanese is 高気圧エア・チェンバー・システム
    For 1 session, 1 hour, it is around 3000 yen. I'm doing a package of 3 sessions for 5000 yen.

  3. What's that in US dollars?

    Good luck with it Scott. Popular down here with footy players. At least you can read a book while it's happening.

  4. 1000 yen = 11 dollars. That's cheap! Will be interested to hear if it helps.

  5. I hope it works for you Scotty!
    Injury sucks!
