What Is Ozone Therapy?

The oxygen that humans breathe in is actually 02, which consists of two oxygen atoms bonded together. Ozone is also known as O3, meaning that each molecule has three oxygen atoms in it. Humans should not breathe it in because it can be toxic when inhaled. However, when it is used as part of a non-surgical orthopedic treatment plan, it can have some remarkable benefits.

Ozone is highly reactive. When its atoms break apart, they instigate a reaction in nearby tissues, which can stimulate healing, promote pain relief, and offer other advantages.

Benefits of Ozone Therapy

Research suggests that ozone therapy has the potential to:

  • Mobilize your body’s stem cells to move to the treated area, where they can work to promote healing
  • Reduce painful joint inflammation
  • Kill harmful invasive molecules, such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses
  • Increase levels of NAD+ in the body (NAD+ plays an important role in the functioning of the body’s mitochondria)
  • Help the body cope with autoimmune disorders
  • Reduce pain caused by fibromyalgia
  • Enhance tissue oxygenation

Almost as outstanding as its ability to help the body function its best is the fact that ozone is a very low-risk treatment. When it is properly administered, it is very unlikely to cause adverse side effects. Plus, because it is just oxygen atoms, virtually no one ever has an allergic reaction to it!

How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

If you think that ozone therapy might work for you, schedule a consultation with your team. After we learn about your overall health and the specific challenges that you are facing, we will determine whether ozone therapy could help you feel better.

If we believe that ozone could be part of your regenerative medicine treatment plan, we will help you understand the road ahead. Most patients attend several ozone therapy sessions before they experience optimum results.

Typically, the ozone is injected strategically into (or near) parts of the body that are most in need of healing. It may be mixed with oxygen before it is administered intramuscularly. In other cases, it is mixed with a patient’s own blood before it is given via an intravenous injection.
