Healing Ozone? You know that ozone protects us from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun. But did you know that ozone also can protect our cells and reverse injury done to cells? A molecule of 3 oxygen atoms loosely attached to each other provides an amazing triad of healing oxygen to the area of damage.
Ozone improves cellular metabolism and energy output thereby allowing the cell to do what it needs to do. This includes healing cartilage cells, nerve cells, immune cells and more.
Locally injected medical ozone is safe and effective for the back, joint, cartilage, ligament, tendon and nerve repair. This is often used in combination with Hormone Replacement, anti-inflammatory diets or other treatments to improve outcomes for patients with arthritis (osteo and rheumatoid), tendonitis, ligament tears and who might be facing joint replacement in the future.
Ozone therapy is a relatively painless proliferate and antiinflammatory therapy which stimulates the ligaments, joints and tendons toward recovery and repair. Depending on severity, and duration of pain you should expect 4-6 treatments for an area to fully repair. In acute injuries, treatment times are much shorter and faster. All joints of the body can be treated with Ozone including knees, low back, neck, shoulder, fingers, elbows, hips, ankles etc.
