Most people aren’t all that familiar with the many benefits of ozone therapy. At its core, ozone therapy is a process in which the colorless gas ozone, a form of oxygen, is administered medically, for the purpose of treatment.
Even though it sounds a bit New Age, ozone therapy is nothing new. Ozone has been used medically for more than 100 years, including in wound treatment during the First World War.
Today, the benefits of ozone therapy are beginning to really come to light. Doctors and their patients are realizing the significance of using ozone therapy in disinfecting wounds, in managing pain, and in helping treat diseases. And, because ozone can be administered in several different ways, the doctors at Artius Integrative Medicine find ozone therapy an ideal, and natural, nonsurgical treatment for a whole range of conditions, including chronic pain.
How you may benefit from ozone therapy
The natural, and regenerative properties of ozone make it appealing to many who seek alternative methods for controlling pain or nonsurgical ways to address back and spinal issues and degenerative joint conditions. Here are three reasons to consider ozone therapy.
Ozone therapy can provide relief from pain
Debilitating pain in your back, neck, and other musculoskeletal joints can really impact your life. Joint pain makes it difficult to move, and pain medications carry a whole slew of side effects. All-natural ozone therapy fosters relief from pain and inflammation as well as improved joint function.
Ozone therapy can repair and rebuild tissue
In addition, ozone therapy promotes better circulation, improves cell function, and encourages regrowth of tissue that has been damaged, including compromised muscle mass. Patients have reported improved range of motion, along with confidence to move more freely.
Ozone therapy can strengthen your immune system
Ozone is a powerful antioxidant, improving cell structure by ensuring oxygen-rich red blood cells perform their best. Additionally, ozone has been shown to deactivate bacteria, viruses, and fungi, along with yeast and protozoa, which promote disease. The ozone flushes out infected cells and helps your body to repopulate with new, healthy cells.
What is Prolozone therapy?
For musculoskeletal pain and conditions, the optimum form of ozone therapy is known as Prolozone therapy. Prolozone comes from the Latin word “prolix” which means to proliferate or rebuild, regenerate.
Our patients are amazed by the results of Prolozone therapy. During treatment, your provider injects Prolozone directly into your soft tissue. As the ozone goes to work rebuilding and replacing damaged tissue, patients experience relief from pain, even after the first injection.
Prolozone therapy reduces inflammation, which, in turn, restores mobility and function of the joint and muscle. The team at Artius Integrative Medicine designs a customized plan for treatment to ensure your rehabilitation.
