Ozone Therapy for Back Pain


O3 - OZÔNIOOzone therapy is a revolutionary non-surgical alternative for treating back aches related to a herniated spinal disc.

In this kind of treatment, the very beneficial Ozone is injected right in the affected disc.

The article below talks in detail about the benefits as well as experiences of such a therapy for patients suffering from a herniating or bulging disc.

This treatment option can be very effective if used in addition to other alternative treatments.


How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

‘Ozonucleolysis’ or ‘Ozone Therapy’ for spinal herniated discs is a relatively new non-surgical alternative for treating back pain related to disc herniation. In this therapy a highly beneficial molecule, Ozone (O3), is injected directly inside the problematic intervertebral disc.

The injection is administered under local anesthesia supplemented with intravenous sedation under real time digital radiological control that ensures proper placement of Ozone in the center of the diseased spinal disc.

The treatment of back problems and specifically herniated spinal discs by Ozone therapy has met with enthusiasm due of its non-invasive nature, lack of major complications and excellent results when compared to other methods. This therapy has now made it possible for people suffering from slipped discs to safely escape the surgeon’s knife and get rid of that pain with the simple prick of a needle.



How Does Ozone Help a Herniated Disc?

There are three different ways in which this therapy assists patients with herniated disc pain:

1. Direct effect on the disc material: spinal discs contain approximately 80% water. When injected in the disc, Ozone quickly dissolves in the disc water, helping reduce the disc prolapse, which in turn reduces the pain caused by the pressure on spinal nerves. 

2. Anti-inflammatory properties: the injection helps release chemicals which reduce inflammation and indirectly relieve pain.

3. Pain reduction through anti-oxidants: Ozone sets off production of antioxidant enzyme system which works on injured tissues that have been subject to long standing oxygen injury.
