Providing Medical Ozone Therapy in South Florida the Virgin Islands
Are you suffering from low back pain, mid back pain, shoulder pain or elbow pain? You're not alone. The usual course of treatment for these types of pain are surgery, pain killers, anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone shots. While some of these solutions may offer temporary relief, they do not treat the underlying cause of the issue. Also, many of these treatments when used frequently, have negative side-effects.
The most common types of pain that we successfully treat naturally with Ozone are:

How Does Ozone Work?
The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than normal. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities.
Ozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments.
Ozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain. Because ozone has the ability in many cases to actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free. By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.
Ozone Therapy is a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas. Ozone Therapy offers a non-surgical, ligament reconstruction option and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain.
Why Joints & Ligaments Degenerate
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Ligaments will also not tighten on their own to their original length once injured. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose. If we are athletic or if we are just getting older there is some gradual and natural degeneration of the moving parts of the body due to ongoing recurrent mechanical stress, and failure of tissues to repair. This can come from lack of nutrients, lack of circulation, aging and inflammation. When this happens the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage become dehydrated and weaker. This results in laxity and more abnormal mechanical stress and shearing forces on the joint. Abnormal shearingforces and torsion cause more joint dysfunction. This leads to a progressive separation of the ligaments from the superficial covering on the bone called the periosteum. This pulling on the periosteum creates a space, which the body fills in with new bone. These new parts of bone are called osteophytes. They are the premier signs of degenerative arthritis in & around the joint. Osteophytes and joint laxity result in a reduced range of motion, which causes strain on surrounding muscles which then become either over or under worked leading to more dysfunction & pain.
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:
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.
