Arthritis is a complex family of musculoskeletal disorders consisting of more than 100 different diseases or conditions that can affect people of all ages. Arthritis is not just a disease of old age. Two-thirds of people with arthritis are under the age of 65, including 300,000 children.
Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of arthritis, is a progressive degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage associated with risk factors such as obesity, joint injury, overuse of the joint, weak thigh muscles, genetics and age.
OA is a chronic condition in which the material that is the surface of the joint, which is called cartilage, breaks down. This causes the bones to rub against each other, causing stiffness, pain and loss of joint movement. Osteoarthritis gradually worsens with time, but osteoarthritis treatments can slow the progression of the disease, relieve pain, and improve joint function. This may include autologous bone marrow derived stem cell treatments and other pain relief therapies such as ozone injections.
Ozone therapy is revolutionizing the way certain orthopedic conditions like arthritis, osteoarthritis and joint pain are being treated these days. For centuries man has lived with the terrible pain that these diseases are associated with. While conventional medicine has drugs and surgeries to treat these conditions, the question of side-effects is something that always haunts patients.
It was therefore important that alternate methods of treatment of such orthopedic conditions be devised so that patients are able to benefit in multiple ways. Alternate treatment methods are non-surgical in nature – they are either minimally invasive or completely non-invasive – they have no side-effects and they help to improve the well-being of the patient. These methods are all FDA approved which means that they are authenticated. Research suggests that in most cases such alternate methods are likely to succeed much more in completely healing the patient vis-à-vis the conventional methods. And lastly, alternate treatment practices are based on the logic that our bodies have tremendous innate healing powers. Hence, such procedures are made to fasten the body’s own natural process of healing of the injured part.
Ozone therapy involves injecting the patient with a concentration of the gas. This therapy has been hailed for its ability to enhance the oxygen transport capacity of veins and arteries by cleansing them while simultaneously it also improves the immune system of the body. The oxygen ozone injection is applied directly at the affected part by a practiced doctor. The pros of this therapy are that it helps reduce pain and cures the damaged part faster and more effectively. This helps in improving not only the physical condition of the patient but also his mental and emotional state.
There are no known side-effects of ozone therapy. The only factor that one needs to keep in mind is that alternate treatment works best when treated by experienced and qualified doctors.
