What is Joint injections with Ozone therapy?
Joint injections with Ozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Joint injections with Ozoneis a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen-producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas. By repairing the connective tissue chronic pain can be permanently reversed
Joint injections with Ozone therapy is an injection technique similar to prolotherapy that uses ozone. The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional prolotherapy. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the repair of fibroblastic joint.
Joint injections with Ozone is a technique that combines the principles of neural therapy, Prolotherapy, and ozone therapy. It involves injecting combinations of procaine, anti-inflammatory medications, homeopathics, vitamins, minerals, proliferatives, and ozone/oxygen gas into degenerated or injured joints, and into areas of pain. This article reviews the nature of what medical grade ozone is, how it works in biological systems, and how it can be used to regenerate joints and other damaged tissues, and to alleviate pain. Three case studies are presented. Click here for more
Oxygen-Ozone Treatment of the Knee, Shoulder and Hip A Personal Experience
P. Benvenuti, Orthopaedic and Neurological Recovery and Rehabilitation Unit, S. Anna Hospital; Brescia, Italy
SUMMARY – This paper describes the author’s experience of treating acute and chronic disease of the large joints (knee, shoulder, hip) by intra and peri-articular injections of microdoses of an oxygenozone gas mixture. Three illustrative case reports are given. The patients were assessed before and after treatment. In addition to a resolution of joint pain, patients had a good functional recovery of their daily activities and the treatment was well-tolerated.
Our experiences are in line with current literature on the topic and demonstrate the efficacy and versatility of ozone as an agent counteracting joint pain, inflammation and swelling also when administered in small amounts at weekly intervals. Ozone also proved able to spread through tissues even after percutaneous periarticular administration 4,8 with no adverse reactions whatsoever. Click here for more
Oxygen-Ozone Therapy and Omotoxicology Drug in Gonarthrosis
L. Cursio, G. Menaldo. Unite Research of Global Medicine, I. P. O. G. Turin, Italy.
Gonarthrosis is a disease found more frequently in females. Some authors maintain that this degenerative arthropathy is the most common kind of arthrosis. It is normally a bilateral condition although at its outset it present monoarticular symptoms. Traumas, congenital malformations (like: genu-valgum and genu-varum) and circulatory affections and meniscus alterations are the most frequently found causes of this diseases.
Symptoms: pain seems to be unrelated and spontaneous and it can increase when walking, but mostly when going downstairs; the joint movements are reduced and can be painful when pressure is applied to the inner side of the joint. We have looked for a combined treatment with oxygen-ozone on the acupuncture points and homotoxicology substances such as: cimicifuga, colocynthis, arnica, belladonna . A mixture of oxygen-ozone (15 mL in all), whose concentration was 30 (g/mL, has been injected into the inter-joint space and around it (periarticulation). The patient felt a slight burning sensation which disappeared few minutes after the injection. The homotoxicology substances were thus given: arnica and cimicifuga by us, colocynthis or colocynthis belladonna by subcutaneous route around the joint. The number of patients treated for this case study were 48, between 43 and 62 years of age
Symptoms improved rapidly (after only 3-4 treatments) and night pain was greatly reduced and so was the swelling with a return of joint functions. The total number of treatments for patients was from a minimum of 8 to a maximum of 15, being space twice weekly first and weekly afterwards. Only 5 patients did not have a satisfactory outcome, due to their lack of cooperation. It is concluded that although some patients did not have a total remission of the pain, nevertheless they had the great advantage of not having night pain anymore, a more comfortable sleep, less swelling and improved joint movement.
