HBOT has been used to treat joint, muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries in soccer players in Scotland. When HBOT was used in conjunction with physiotherapy, the time to recovery was reduced by 70%. The results compared a physiotherapist's estimation of the time course for the injury and the actual number of training days missed.
