The dawn of regenerative medicine has paved the way for the development of therapeutic approaches that have revolutionized how certain medical conditions and injuries are addressed.
One of these treatment modalities is ozone injection therapy, which involves the administration of ozone (O3) gas—directly, intramuscularly, or intravenously—into the body to produce therapeutic chemical changes.
Ozone is a naturally occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. When judiciously used, ozone—given its reactive nature—is especially useful in a wide variety of therapeutic applications.
Let’s explore the specific benefits of ozone injections—the very reasons why you might want to consider getting them.
Ozone therapy helps fight diseases.
Studies show that ozone therapy can suppress oxidative stress (imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body that can lead to cell and tissue damage) and inactivate the mechanisms of the following pathogens, thereby preventing the onset or progression of a vast range of diseases:
Ozone therapy reduces or eliminates the need for medications and surgeries.
Ozone, when injected into a diseased or injured tissue, boosts blood supply and the flow of healing nutrients into the area. Ozone also promotes the deposition and activity of fibroblasts (cells that play a role in wound healing) and chondroblasts (cells that play a role in cartilage formation). Fibroblasts and chondroblasts synthesize collagen and cartilage (respectively), which the body can use to repair and regenerate injured joints and ligaments. The increased cellular repair activity also strengthens the injured tissues and consequently provides stability to the affected area.
Ozone’s regenerative capability and anti-inflammatory properties reduce and even eliminate the need for pharmacological and surgical interventions.
Ozone therapy addresses a vast variety of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.
After having been probed into for over a century, ozone therapy is now widely embraced by practitioners across several medical disciplines for its efficacy both as a standalone and as an adjunctive treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. These include tennis elbow, disc herniation, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis.
If you’re suffering from pain associated with a herniated disc, ozone injections relieve pressure on your spinal nerve by shrinking the disc’s herniated portion. It is worth noting that the injections do not induce changes to the normal anatomy of the disc and instead helps ensure its health—as opposed to the effects of surgery.
