Ozone + Joint Pain: A New Approach for Powerful Relief

Joint pain is a condition that affects almost 1 in 4 adults in the US. It can be caused by many factors, often from an existing medical condition, like arthritis, or from wear and tear or strenuous activity on the affected area, particularly in athletes. Sometimes it can simply be a reality of getting older, after your joints have seen some action over the course of a life well lived. But nearly half of those who experience joint pain say it limits their ability to take part in physical activity and live their life to the fullest.

The predominant medical conditions that cause joint pain include general arthritis and degenerative arthrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, post viral infection arthritis, and fibromyalgia, which, combined, affect nearly a quarter of the population. The resulting pain presents itself primarily in the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, neck, hips, knees, and/or ankles, but can occur anywhere two bones meet. In other words, while we typically associate joint pain with our knees and hips, you may be surprised to discover that pain in other areas is actually the result of inflammation of the joints.

Ozone therapy is one of the best ways to liberate you from joint pain, providing powerful relief and addressing the underlying cause of the pain and inflammation. As with nearly all pain management in the US, the conventional approach to treating pain begins and ends at symptom relief. However, ozone therapy’s approach to pain relief is much more complex. As a safe and natural bioregulatory medicine that uses an individualized set of treatments and clinical approaches, ozone therapy relieves the pain itself while seeking to address the underlying cause of the pain to prevent it from occurring in the first place, so that ultimately there are fewer symptoms to relieve!

To go a little deeper into what’s causing the discomfort in your joints, let’s look at what is actually happening. Depending on the circumstances, what you’re feeling in your joint areas might be inflammation, the degradation of the articular cartilage, the thickening or remodeling of the bone itself, and/or the degeneration of ligaments. It may be a symptom of arthritis, isolated trauma to the area, like falling down, or the result of prolonged strain on the area, which is usually the case for athletes.

For athletes, the most common area we see affected by joint pain are the knees. Osteoarthritis in the knee is also the leading cause of joint pain in general, affecting more than 9.3 million adults in the US. That’s because almost every strenuous physical activity you can undertake puts stress on your knees. It’s not just running and cycling – lifting weights can put stress on your knees, and even standing up for long periods of time takes its toll. When insoles are no longer cutting it, and the pain starts to affect your quality of life and ability to participate in everyday activities, it’s time to look for a more powerful solution.

What makes ozone therapy so effective as a treatment for joint pain and inflammation is not just its integrative approach to healing that puts true health and wellness above symptom relief – cause before effect – but the ability to apply the treatment hyper-locally, directly at the affected area. Applying medical ozone (a mixture of O2 + O3) in this way oxidizes the pain and inflammation chemical mediators locally, relieving both the pain itself and helping to heal or slow down the degeneration of the affected area. Meanwhile, its ability to modulate the immune system can have notable benefits for those whose joint pain is caused by lupus or arthritis.

Ozone therapy has no side effects or interactions with other medications and can greatly improve the patient’s quality of life. The benefits for those suffering from joint pain, inflammation, and chronic pain in general, go beyond just stopping the pain and continue to be the subject of numerous scientific research studies. The combined effects of ozone therapy when used both systemically and through local infiltrations provide further relief with the following properties:

  • Anti-Inflammatory Effect

  • Circulation Activation

  • Tissue Oxygenation

  • Powerful Antioxidant

  • Tissue Healing + Regeneration

  • Reduction of other chronic pain-killer medications

  • Muscle Relaxation

  • Immune System Modulation

It’s been described in scientific and clinical publications that 75% of patients improve their mobility and pain and do not require surgery after one cycle of Ozone Therapy.
