In which diseases is Ozonetherapy usually applied?
Medical Ozone is an analgesic, anti-inflammatory and oxygenating treatment used in patients with diseases and disturbances of the locomotor system, both in Traumatology and Rheumatology. Since more than ten years, our medical team has obtained excellent results in the treatment of hip arthritis, knee pain, shoulder injuries and disorders, spinal disease, and common sports injuries such as tendonitis and groin strain.
Is Ozonetherapy especially useful in patients with neck pain or low back pain?
Patients affected with chronic spinal pain of cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions encounter serious difficulties to perform everyday tasks. Most of them have tried multiple drugs, physical therapy, acupuncture, use of lumbar corset, and they have even gone to Pain Treatment Unit without obtaining the solution to his disease.
Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment with excellent results and satisfactory testimonials, because it complements its anti-inflammatory and analgesic action with its oxygenating property, which is ideal for the treatment of neck diseases and low back pain.
And the lumbar herniated disc treatments?
Oxygen-ozone therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar disk herniation with the advantage of being as effective as traditional surgery. It does not require hospitalization and it is cheaper. The treatment will be done in an operating room in a hospital under local anesthesia and minimal sedation.
