Ozone Injection Therapy For Pain Relief

What Is Ozone Injection?

Ozone Therapy is a type of Regenerative Medicine, involves injecting ozone gas, which is made up of three oxygen molecules (O3), into the tissue.The ozone quickly breaks apart and oxygenates the surrounding tissue and mitochondria. 

This has two key benefits: 

(1) It enhances tissue repair by increasing oxygenation and ATP production.

(2) It prompts the body to release other naturally regenerative biochemicals such as stem cells, growth factors, cytokines, collagens, and peroxides. Research has indicated that ozone therapy increases oxygen absorption in the mitochondria by 1,000%.

What to Expect with Ozone Therapy?

When ozone gas is injected, a burning sensation in the injected area can be expected to last for 1-2 minutes. This is followed by a period of soreness, which in 60% of cases lasts only a few minutes, in 30% of cases lasts the rest of the day, in 9% of cases lasts up to 48 hours, and in 1% of cases lasts for more than 48 hours. For 7-10 days following the ozone injection, the tissues and the body as a whole will be in an increased state of healing and repair. So, even though some achiness may be felt during that time, it does not mean that the ozone therapy is not working effectively. For pain relief, you can apply gentle massage to the treated area. Avoid taking NSAIDs such as aspirin or ibuprofen for 24 hours after treatment,Omega 3 supplements are permitted.
