What is ozone therapy?
Ozone is a medical-grade form of oxygen containing three atoms of oxygen (O3). By comparison, the oxygen in the air you breathe consists of two atoms (O2). The extra atom gives ozone the ability to trigger chemical reactions inside your body that promote healing.
Ozone therapy introduces ozone into your body. Your FIX Medical Group provider uses one of several techniques during your ozone therapy, depending on the reason for your treatment.
When would I need ozone therapy?
Inside your body, ozone serves as a powerful antioxidant that reduces inflammation. Ozone therapy improves your health by strengthening your immune system and increasing blood oxygen levels. The treatment also effectively kills bacteria, viruses, and yeasts.
Ozone therapy eases pain and treats many health conditions, including:
- Herniated discs
- Diabetic ulcers
- Infections (including antibiotic-resistant infections)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Immune deficiency disorders
- Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Your FIX Medical Group provider could recommend ozone therapy to treat many musculoskeletal injuries.
How do I receive ozone therapy?
Your provider administers ozone therapy in several forms.
Topical ozone therapy
If you’ve suffered a wound or skin condition, your provider applies ozone to your skin using a protective cover to hold the gas near your skin or an ozone-infused oil or gel.
Your provider can inject your ozone therapy. An injection can target any area but is especially beneficial for problems like muscle pain and spine problems.
Intravenous (IV) infusion
An IV infusion sends ozone directly into your bloodstream, treating internal diseases and infections. In most cases, your provider takes a sample of your blood, adds the gas, and then returns the treated blood to your body. This technique treats bodywide diseases and infections.
10-pass ozone therapy
10-pass therapy delivers a higher dose of ozone than a single IV infusion. Like a one-time infusion, your provider removes blood using the IV, adds ozone, and returns it to your body. But in the 10-pass technique, they repeat the process 10 times.
