Ozone (O3) is a modified form of oxygen, produced from oxygen (O2) in an electric generator. It is produced as a gas, with powerful oxidizing properties and multiple medical uses, both intravenously and locally.
Ozone resolves infections from bacteria, viruses, and fungi by increasing production of cytokines, chemical messengers made by white blood cells to enlist immune support. It also stimulates antioxidant molecules like glutathione, which help alleviate the effect autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Ozone Therapy for Joint Pain (Prolotherapy)
This is an injection used to treat tendon, ligament, muscle or joint problems, including low back pain. The involved area is injected with procaine, glucose, vitamins and minerals to support healing, and then with ozone through the same needle. It can effectively resolve pain and inflammation, and repair damaged areas without surgery. Prolozone injections may also resolve carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, Dupuytren’s contractures, and pain from scars
