What Is Ozone Therapy?
The oxygen that humans breathe in is 02; it consists of two oxygen atoms bonded together. Ozone is also called O3, meaning that each molecule contains three oxygen atoms. Humans should not inhale it because it can be toxic. However, when it is utilized as part of a non-surgical orthopedic treatment regimen, it can provide some remarkable benefits.
Ozone is extremely reactive. When its atoms break apart, they instigate a reaction in nearby tissues, which in turn stimulates healing, promotes pain relief, and offers other advantages.
Benefits of Ozone Therapy
Research indicates that ozone therapy has the potential to:
- Encourage your body’s stem cells to move to the treatment area, where they can work to promote healing
- Reduce painful joint inflammation
- Kill harmful invasive molecules, such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses
- Lead to higher levels of NAD+ in the body (NAD+ is important in the functioning of the body’s mitochondria)
- Help the body deal with autoimmune disorders
- Reduce pain and discomfort caused by fibromyalgia
- Enhance tissue oxygenation
Almost as remarkable as its ability to help the body function its best is the fact that ozone therapy is a very low-risk treatment. When it is administered properly, it is highly unlikely to cause adverse side effects. Plus, because it is just oxygen atoms, allergic reactions to it are virtually nonexistent.
How Does Ozone Therapy Work?

Generally speaking, the ozone is injected strategically into (or near) the parts of the body that are most in need of healing. It is often mixed with oxygen before it is administered intramuscularly. In other cases, it is combined with a patient’s own blood before it is given via an intravenous injection.
