Chronic pain – persistent discomfort that lasts for weeks, months, or even years – is a frustrating and disruptive problem that often defies conservative treatment options such as rest, medication, or physical therapy.
Depending on the type and severity of the condition causing the chronic pain, patients often resort to surgery. This may or may not help to relieve the pain, and it comes with the added risk of serious complications – such as bleeding, infection, nerve damage, or blood vessel injury.
However, there is a new way to treat chronic pain that is more effective than many of the regular options and without the risks involved with invasive surgery: ozone injection therapy. Ozone therapy in the form of injection offers oxygenation, immune-system support, and both anti-infection and anti-inflammatory properties – which all directly address the source of your painful condition.
In numerous clinical studies, ozone therapy has been found to improve many of the mechanisms that promote chronic pain and inflammation. Let’s talk about how this revolutionary therapy works to combat chronic pain, and where you can go in Caldwell to finally achieve long-lasting pain relief.
Relief from Chronic Pain Through Ozone Injection Therapy
Ozone is a supercharged oxygen molecule that physicians worldwide have been using for more than 100 years to treat a wide variety of medical conditions. It is a proven solution for many health issues, including joint pain, herniated discs, sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, arthritis, and even a sluggish immune system.
In fact, medical ozone injection therapy serves as an alternative to conventional injection treatments and a number of surgeries, such as knee replacement surgery or shoulder surgery.
Oxygen-ozone injection treatment reverses and heals longstanding joint and muscle damage by:
- Signaling your body’s stem cells to mobilize to the painful area
- Stimulating cells to proliferate
- Increasing blood flow to painful area
- Increasing levels of NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a coenzyme that is key to metabolism) in your body, thereby reducing inflammation and pain
The ozone injection therapy procedure is done in an office setting – with the exception of ozone injection treatment for disc herniation, which is performed with fluoroscopic guidance at a surgical center. For chronic pain in hip joints, in-office ultrasound guidance is used.
