Not long ago, a Commonwealth University of Virginia study found that at least one third of people with minor or low-grade knee osteoarthritis underwent total knee replacement surgery that was, in fact, unnecessary, given their symptoms.
Unbeknownst to many people suffering from chronic knee pain, knee replacement surgery is a serious procedure that poses potentially life-threating risks, such as blood clots, infections, or the failure of the implant. Surgery is neither your first or only option when it comes to treating persistent knee pain or trauma. There are various therapeutic treatment options for orthopedic pain, including anti-inflammatory drugs, but in the case of painkillers, this form of treatment is riddled with many disadvantages.
A safer, affordable, and often just as effective alternative to these options is medical oxygen-ozone injections.
The Natural Healing Power of Ozone
Therapeutic injections of medical ozone into structures such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and arthritic joints has been used by medical clinics to provide pain relief for more than 100 years and found to be effective in numerous clinical studies.
Ozone is a naturally occurring, soluble gas consisting of three oxygen atoms (O3). Because it is a potent oxidizing agent with not only an anti-inflammatory effect, but also the ability to help repair and regenerate tissue by stimulating cellular growth, it is used to treat a wide variety of conditions affecting joints, muscles, and tendons.
When medical oxygen-ozone is injected into the joint capsule of an arthritic knee, it can aid in the regeneration of cartilage, thus initiating tissue repair and regeneration.
Oxygen-ozone therapy for muscle pain, muscle spasms, or joint pain is a simple in-office injection treatment that requires no anesthetic and is performed by triple board-certified Dr. Warren J. Bleiweiss at Alternative Disc Therapy in Caldwell, New Jersey. For those who are uncomfortable with injections or have anxiety toward needles, Dr. Bleiweiss provides nitrous oxide upon request.
Another advantage of oxygen ozone therapy is that there is no downtime. Whereas knee surgery often requires convalescence, once your oxygen-ozone treatment is over, you can leave and resume your normal activities.
