Ozone disc treatment
How it works
Ozone is a natural product from the sun's energy interacting with the atmosphere. Ozone has been used in many types of medical treatments for over 100 years. Physicians in Europe, India, and Canada have been using ozone injections to treat disc herniations in the spine for more than two decades with excellent results and safety. Our practice has over 15 years of experience with this therapy. This safe and reliable procedure will shrink a protruding disc by 10-20%, which is usually enough to resolve back pain and sciatica. Treatments in the neck area have also shown success.
A consultation will determine if ozone disc treatment is a good option. Under strict sterile technique and x-ray guidance, the injured disc is injected with a small amount of ozone. A mild sedative can be administered. The procedure causes little pain, and virtually no down time afterward. Symptoms start to improve immediately, and continue to improve over the next 2 months.
