Ozone therapy causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Ozone therapy halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain. Because ozone therapy has the ability in many cases to actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75-85% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free. By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is a technique based on the application of a concentration of oxygen and ozone. The compound rapidly dissolves in the body and comes into contact with the molecules, generating acute oxidative stress. This has many benefits:
- It improves tissue oxygenation by increasing oxygen transport capacity.
- Antiplatelet effect.
- It improves the body’s antioxidant systems.
- Bactericidal and disinfectant effects.
- It helps the immune system combat infections and autoimmune diseases.
In addition to these benefits for the treatment of osteoarthritis, ozone therapy, in many cases, is making it possible to reduce medication. Not to mention that recovery is becoming faster. And, as they start feeling better, the state of mind of patients also improves. This enables them to return to their day-to-day activities earlier, which increases their quality of life. Also, because it does not involve the use of drugs, ozone therapy has no side effects and does not interact with other drugs.
All of this explains why ozone therapy is increasingly being used for the treatment of autoimmune diseases and conditions with chronic inflammation such as arthritis. In fact, it is also being used to treat other disorders such as herniated discs, lower back pain and cervicalgia. It is a quick, effective and painless technique. And it can be applied on an outpatient basis, has very few contraindications and produces no complications if it is carried out by qualified personnel.
