Case Study: Wendy’s Remarkable Recovery with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Wendy, an 82-year-old woman, had been struggling with leg ulcers and other health issues following knee surgery and the natural aging process.

Her leg ulcers were slow to heal, causing discomfort and concern. However, a chance encounter with a friend who mentioned hyperbaric oxygen therapy at the Oxygen Centre in Plymouth following an article in Plymouth Live piqued Wendy’s interest.

Encouraged by her friend’s recommendation, Wendy decided to give it a try and contacted the centre to enquire about the treatment.


Wendy’s health issues began with leg ulcers triggered by a minor bump on her leg. Despite undergoing traditional treatment at another medical facility, her ulcers showed little progress over 12 months. The combination of her age and the aftermath of surgery posed additional challenges to her recovery. Upon learning about hyperbaric oxygen therapy, Wendy decided to embark on this new approach to address her health concerns.

Treatment Journey:

Wendy opted for a block of 20 hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions, organised in batches of 5. Throughout this period, she noticed significant improvements in her overall health. The therapy’s impact on her leg ulcers was particularly remarkable, with one leg healing completely.

Where Wendy had previously received treatment, they had only focused on dressing her ulcers, yielding limited results. However, after starting hyperbaric oxygen therapy at the Oxygen Centre, Wendy’s healing process accelerated significantly.

Health Benefits:

Apart from the successful healing of her leg ulcers, Wendy experienced other positive health outcomes. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy had a substantial impact on her blood pressure, effectively reducing it. This was especially noteworthy as high blood pressure had been a long-standing concern for Wendy.

In addition to physical improvements, Wendy’s sleep quality improved, and she began to feel generally better overall.

The attentive care provided by Cristina, at the Oxygen Centre, played a vital role in creating a relaxing atmosphere during the therapy sessions. Wendy initially felt anxious about the confined spaces during her first session but soon adapted to the environment. During the two-hour sessions, Wendy is able to read and relax.


Wendy’s experience with hyperbaric oxygen therapy at the Oxygen Centre in Plymouth has been transformative.

The therapy’s efficacy in healing her leg ulcers, lowering her blood pressure, and enhancing her overall well-being has made a significant difference in her life.

Wendy continues to have maintenance sessions now and highly recommends this treatment to others who may be facing similar health challenges.

Her success story stands as a testament to the potential benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, making it a viable option for those seeking effective and non-invasive solutions to their health issues.
