Chronic joint pain due to arthritis – in the hands, feet, hips, knees, or spine – can be quite frustrating, depriving you of the ability to perform everyday activities, including the ones you truly enjoy.
When conventional treatment options such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and steroid injections fail to provide long-lasting relief, it may seem as if your joint pain will never be resolved. However, there is an effective solution that not only helps relieve chronic joint pain but also helps patients avoid the need for surgery or potentially habit-forming prescription medication.
Intravenous (IV) infusion of ozone has been clinically proven to significantly decrease pain intensity and improve functional status in patients with osteoarthritis.
How Ozone IV Infusion Works
Ozone (O3) is a naturally occurring gas that consists of three atoms of oxygen. When administered intravenously, it has multiple therapeutic effects on a wide variety of diseases and health problems, such as chronic infections, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, ulcerative colitis, Lyme Disease, lupus, and many more.
Ozone therapy is a technique that involves the application of a concentration of ozone and oxygen that quickly dissolves in the body and comes into contact with molecules which results in several key benefits, including the following:
- It improves tissue oxygenation by boosting oxygen transport capacity.
- It enhances your body’s antioxidant systems.
- It has bactericidal and disinfectant effects.
- It helps your immune system ward off infection and combats autoimmune diseases.
IV ozone therapy (also known as ozone immunotherapy) is similarly administered like any other infusion, such as vitamins and minerals. It involves the mixture of a small sample of your blood with an equal amount of oxygen ozone that is reinfused into the bloodstream via an IV drip. This treatment has been performed by physicians around the globe for decades and has been found to be both safe and effective, not to mention having a powerful immune boosting effect.
The risks associated with ozone IV therapy are extremely low and typically require no downtime. The effects of the treatment may be felt immediately by some or within a few days to a week for others. Nevertheless, you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment since any side effects of the treatment are minimal at best.

Triple board-certified physician, Dr. Warren J. Bleiweiss, is a pioneer and leading authority in regenerative medicine who routinely administers ozone IV infusion therapy at Alternative Disc Therapy in Caldwell, New Jersey.
Since no two patients are completely alike, the dosage and protocol of IV ozone therapy prescribed by Dr. Bleiweiss are not the same for everyone.
