Medical Ozone Therapy for Various Conditions

As we age, our body changes. Some of these changes include deterioration of our weight bearing joints, mainly our back, hips and knees. Our mobility will suffer and our ability to walk will become more labored as these joints become stiff and painful. Usual treatments that your doctor may recommend include anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments and even surgery. Unfortunately, most of the time relief from these treatments is only temporary.


Fortunately, there is an alternative treatment that may give you permanent relief to help you regain your mobility. This treatment is called medical ozone therapy. Some of the medical conditions that medical ozone has been very successful in treating include:

  • Neck pain related to auto accidents, arthritis, disc conditions, nerve impingement
  • Low back pain conditions and related accident, disc or nerve problems
  • Conditions of the upper and lower extremities including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • The management of myofascial pain
  • Weight loss and lifestyle medicine
  • Shoulder rotator cuff syndrome
  • Sports injuries
  • Ankle and foot problems
  • Elbow, hip and knee pain
  • 95% success rate in treating neck and lower back pain.
  • 95% success rate in the non-surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome.

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a natural gas that consists of three oxygenated atoms. When we hear the word "ozone", we think of the layer of gases that surround the planet earth-gases we need to survive. This thought is actually very limited. There are technological advancements using medical ozone, which provides so much more than just comfort in breathing. When dealing with joint disorders and other issues, medical ozone can provide comfort, relief and elimination of pain.

Our Body and Ozone

How the body responds to ozone gases varies. High dosages of ozone can be detrimental to the body. At high levels, this gas can become a pollutant to the body and even cause death. However, at lower and controlled levels ozone can serve as a very powerful antibiotic that helps the body to heal in certain areas. The healing properties of this substance go above and beyond most other treatments.

What Joint Issues can be Treated with Ozone?

Ozone can treat many different diseases and joint disorders:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Torn Tendons
  • TMJ Syndrome
  • Heel Spurs
  • Degenerative arthritic joints
  • Degenerative discs
  • Damaged tissue
  • Ligaments
  • Chronic neck and back pain
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder and elbow pain

There are many different ways that ozone helps the body treat and repair joint disorders such as these. As far as joint issues go, medical ozone provides the nutrients that ligaments and muscles need to recuperate. This stems from the five basic properties of ozone that cause the advanced healing:

  • Ozone regulates the immune system, ensuring that nothing abnormal interferes with joint healing. Whether you have a low or high immune system, ozone can regulate the system back to normal.
  • Ozone stimulates an increase in oxygen, which is always necessary for the healing process
  • Ozone improves circulation, which decreases inflammation. This is done by increasing blood flow to problematic areas
  • Ozone increases stimulation and feeds mitochondria with efficient oxygen supply. Medical ozone treatment can be more effective at mitochondrial stimulation than taking regular vitamin C supplements, which have similar uses
  • Ozone also provides mighty antioxidants, which improves defenses against infection and inflammation

How it Works

Medical ozone therapy is a three-step process. The first step is to administer holistic and anti-inflammatory medications directly to the painful area. This is done to help the swelling go down and circulation to increase. This first step will be enough for you to realize that the process is an improvement over other procedures. The area is then treated with vitamins to improve the healing process. This step will help strengthen and fortify the joints to endure pressures that they previously withstood in earlier life. The last step is to treat the area with ozone in controlled dosages. The ozone helps heal the area and provides ample circulation for the healing process to complete.

When you are young, you don’t think about how playing sports, getting injured or simple genetics will impact your joints later in life. Thankfully, medical advancements such as medical ozone therapy offer an alternative to living a life of pain and activity restriction. If you are living with joint pain, consult a doctor who offers this treatment. It may be the answer to getting your life back.
