Over the past two decades, extensive international medical research has demonstrated that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can play an extremely important role in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis. In many European countries, hyperbaric oxygen treatment is now considered an integral part of the Multiple Sclerosis treatment program. There is scientific evidence to suggest that oxygen treatment does have beneficial effects for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) sufferers, and doctors worldwide are increasingly recommending it as part of their patients’ care plans.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an incurable disease of the central nervous system. Some researchers believe the condition is caused by a lack of oxygen in the body. Patients with multiple sclerosis suffer from weakness, severe pain and loss of vision caused by slowed nerve impulses. They may also experience balance problems, bladder and bowel dysfunction, restricted motion in limbs, muscle spasticity, neurological problems and extreme fatigue.

Many people with MS have reported improvements in their overall symptoms and their functional ability with Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment as far as the following are concerned:
