    I would be most interested to hear of any colleagues' experience in the use of HBOT in the management of foot and ankle trauma and/or disease - paticularly in the Rx of chronic wound management, fractures and soft tissue injuries.

    Hi there, I have experience of 2 cases of chronic foot/lower leg ulcers which responded extremely well to this treatment

    I am interested in this. I took a treatment myself to see what was involved.($70)
    The lie down beds are very, very difficult to climb into, for me, fit and flexible, a senior cit with mobility problems would never manage it. However, I felt energized and lively for days after, and I will try it for jet lag too.
    However, I went to another treatment centre and they had a walk in chamber, but they charged $90.
    Recently I met a Senior (friend of Great Aunt) who is very wealthy and she had 24 hours in hospital for a vein/artery opening up, just what the Dr did was unclear but the treatment was for increasing the blood flow to an ulcer in the lower ankle medial area (since she is not a patient, I did not like to probe to much, and she is not medically inclined.to be able to explain it clearly) and this was a wild success, 2 weeks later, and she walked a mile or so....Chelsea to Harrods....the ulcer healed within 4 weeks. But I am told that the NHS does not pay for this kind of operation. A false economy in my view.
