For many years, those suffering from a wide variety of serious medical conditions believed their only courses of treatment were limited to invasive surgery, intense physical therapy, or medications that not only had major side effects but, in some cases, could be habit-forming.
Today, advances in regenerative medical science provide safe and effective alternative solutions in the form of ozone injection and stem cell therapy.
Ozone (O3) is a super-charged oxygen molecule that has been used to treat a broad range of medical conditions – including joint pain, muscle pain, disc herniations, sports injuries, back and neck pain, arthritis, and a sluggish immune system – for more than 100 years.
Stem cells, on the other hand, are the unique cells in your body that have the innate ability to help your body repair itself naturally. When you are injured or have a disease, stem cells act as your body’s first responders, migrating to the affected areas to help repair the damage.
Considering the many benefits of ozone and stem cell therapy, it is easy to understand their growing popularity as an effective treatment for a variety of medical issues.
The Benefits of Ozone and Stem Cell Therapy
Ozone injection therapy is a technique in which oxygen-ozone gas is injected into your body, where –on a cellular level – it can destroy harmful pathogens, help regulate your metabolic system, boost your circulation, and better balance the free radicals and antioxidants in your system.Ozone injection therapy is also a regenerative treatment and helps repair and restore damaged tissues in the body.
As such, medical-grade ozone provides an alternative to conventional injection treatments and an alternative to a number of surgeries such as knee replacement surgery or shoulder surgery.
Stem cell therapy is a technique in which harvested autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells are transplanted into the patient via injection directly into the affected area being treated. It is administered to help treat a wide range of medical conditions, particularly ones involving joints.
Stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis is particularly significant. Whereas conventional treatments are often limited to medications with potential side effects, temporary lubricating agents, or surgery, stem cell treatments enable healing of the damaged joint by utilizing your body’s innate repairing abilities.
Although your body has its own supply of stem cells, these taper off as you age. In fact, by age 30, your stem cell activity drops by more than half. Stem cell therapy activates your stem cells and directs them to damaged areas of your body where they can help repair and heal.
