Tiger Woods is building a Michael Jackson-like oxygen chamber at his multi-million dollar Florida lair — which apparently — helps treat such ailments as arthritis, chronic fatigue and even herpes.

While there is no suggestion the golfer is constructing the home treatment center for that reason, this form of therapy is a known remedy for injured athletes.

Through his attorney, Woods has filed notices of commencement paperwork to also begin work on a practice golf course at his 9,000-square-foot home in Jupiter Island.

According to documents filed in Florida — and first obtained by the Palm Beach Post — Tiger also plans to install four new pools: a lap pool, a dive pool, a reflection pool and a kiddie pool.

The paperwork did not say who will live at the house, in the future.

But the construction of a kiddie pool would inevitably prompt speculation that Woods plans to remain at the home despite a looming divorce from long-suffering wife Elin.

Oxygen rooms often contain a hyperbaric chamber, a coffin-like steel tank that delivers pure oxygen to the body in high atmospheric pressure.

Michael Jackson was said to sleep in one in an attempt to remain young-looking.

It makes sense for Tiger; he recently suffered a neck injury and will return to competition at next week's Memorial Tournament after a layoff.

Last year, the philandering golf star admitted to using a hyperbaric chamber following rumors that he was using performance enhancing drugs.
