The deterioration of joints and the inflammation of the synovial bursa represent the mechanism through which the condition generally known as “arthrosis” affects the patients’ quality of life. Basically, as the articular tissue is destroyed, pieces of it get into the space between the articulations thus leading to severe inflammation. Whether we are talking about gonarthrosis, cervical arthrosis, coxarthrosis, articular facets arthrosis, or lumbar ostheoarthritis the ozone treatments act in two ways: the recovery of the damaged tissue in the joints and the reduction of the inflammation. A third mechanism has effect on the symptoms of arthrosis, namely pain and stiffness accompanied by the drastic reduction of mobility.
The treatment of arthroses with ozone and thrombocyte enriched plasma does not promise to work wonders, but it has visible results on the patients’ quality of life. The elimination of pain, the increase of articular mobility, or the recovery of synovial fluid have been noticed constantly for over 40 years of this practice. In 1 st and 2 nd degree arthroses, the cartilage recovery is complete, and in the more serious ones, namely those of 3 rd and 4 th degree, the aim of the treatment is to stop de evolution of the disease and to prolongue the interval between crises. The ozone treatment is an individualized one, according to the stage of the stage of the illness and to the patient’s general state. Both the ozone injections and plasma are very well tolerated, and the pain appears only for a brief period of time, sctrictly at the point of inoculation.
With no allergies or side effects, the ozone treatment is recommended mostly to prevent the abuse of anti inflammatory or painkiller medication, as well as for the improvement of the patient’s general state of health.
