I did 15 treatments in a hyperbaric chamber back in January of this year. It seemed to help for a while. The first thing that I noticed was that I was sleeping better and had some pain relief. I am not sure if I am still doing better or not. It is one of those things that once you have a "new normal" you aren't sure if you are better than you were or if you have just gotten used to it. I know that probably doesn't make sense. I guess what I am trying to say is, if I could go back briefly to how I felt before the treatments and compare it to now, I could give a better answer. My doctor did say that one of her other patients that she sent for hyperbaric treatments had no pain afterwards except for some minor arthritis pain. I was not that lucky. And I don't know the other person's circumstances. I currently work full time and am on my feet a lot. I guess I used this long winded answer just to say that if it is financially doable for you- why not? It may give you some relief. My relief may have been short lived but it was worth it.
Best of luck to you,
