Ozone is a gas not a liquid. Medical Oxygen (O2) is used to make Ozone (O3). It is the extra oxygen molecule that does all the work. When the ozone enters the blood it destroys all viruses, yeast, mold, fungus, bacteria, spirochetes and parasites as well as harmful toxins and harmful free radicals. Ozone has also been shown to chelate toxic material from nerve tissue that normal chelation cannot. According to the literature, an adverse reaction to ozone may be a temporary rash.
Medical ozone injection therapy is an excellent pain relief treatment modality, as well as an effective non-surgical alternative treatment for disc herniations. The injection of oxygen-ozone into muscles and discs has been used since the 1980s in European countries to successfully treat patients suffering from disc herniation. It is also used for many other painful conditions such as neck, back, shoulder, knee, joint, hip, and muscle pain. Intradiscal ozone injection therapy has been demonstrated by several published studies over time as a minimally invasive nonsurgical treatment option for disc herniations. Multiple studies have also demonstrated that ozone injections are very safe, with a near zero complication rate.
It’s amazing when patients consistently tell me how effective the treatment with ozone therapy has been for the chronic painful conditions. Patient’s from staff members to personal friends has been successfully treated. This is after treating patient for many years with conventional epidural steroid injections and other treatment modalities. Although it is not as effective after back surgery, it can still in some cases provide some benefit. Some patients were completely pain-free after ozone treatments. This is not to say that every patient will receive the same result. Our patients experience dramatic improvements with ozone injections and some completely recover from pain conditions. The ozone injection therapy is also a holistic approach since it increases circulation and reduces the inflammation by activating body’s natural healing mechanism. Ozone injection therapy enables the patient’s immune system to function at a higher level. As a result, Ozone injection therapy enables a patient’s body to heal naturally, with long lasting results.
