If you have arthritis – especially either rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or osteoarthritis (OA) – you know all about joint pain, dysfunction, and inflammation. You’re likely looking for a holistic treatment that works, without the use of heavy pain medications, steroids, or surgery.
To harness your body’s natural ability to heal itself, regenerative medicine experts may recommend the innovative solution of ozone therapy. Let’s talk about what ozone therapy is, how it works, and where you can go in Mankato, Minnesota, and Clinton, South Carolina, for integrative medicine that works to quell your arthritis.
How Does Ozone Therapy Help with Arthritis?
In holistic medicine, the approach is that the body is a wonderful mix of physical body, mind, and spirit. All work together as a whole to make you the person that you are. However, if one part gets out of whack, the rest of you suffers. Conversely, your body responds to its disequilibrium and releases innate factors to help heal inflammation naturally.
Regenerative medicine treatments boost the body’s natural healing factors. Oxygen naturally energizes and detoxifies the body, and oxygen is number 8 on the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. The oxygen we breathe is a very stable molecule of O2. In contrast, ozone is the highly reactive trioxygen molecule of O3, and it is naturally antimicrobial. These properties of ozone help it work wonders to fight arthritis inflammation in the body.
Prolozone Therapy Is Naturally Derived
An advanced variation of ozone therapy is prolozone therapy. A combination of ozone (oxygen) and proliferative elements – including vitamins, supplements, and a glucose-based irritant – prolozone is a liquid formula that delivers naturally derived treatment to areas of arthritis pain, swelling, and degeneration.
Arthritis in the spine, knee, hip, and shoulder can all benefit from the life-restoring prolozone injections. Prolozone injections are administered in our office and offer the following measurable benefits:
- Increased collagen, which is the skin and joint protein responsible for youthful strength, suppleness, and function
- Stronger, thicker, and more functional joint cartilage and fluid
- Decreased infection
- Decreased pain and stiffness
- Less inflammation
- Improved mobility and endurance in joints
- Healing and regeneration of damaged tissues, such as joint cartilage
- Few to no side effects beyond localized, temporary injection-site discomfort
Ozone Therapy for Arthritis and Other Inflammation
Regenerative medicine experts use prolozone therapy on a wide range of chronic conditions, such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Chronic pain from old sports injuries
- Lower back pain from herniated discs or degenerative disc disease
- Carpal tunnel syndrome (in the hands and wrists)
- Torn rotator cuff (in the shoulder)
- Sciatica (in the lower back, buttocks, and leg)
