What Is O3 or ozone therapy?

No one can argue that the most important nutrient for life preservation and healing is Oxygen.
 We can survive without water for days but just minutes without oxygen. Known for its chemical symbol O, most Oxygen is in the form of O2 because it’s very stable.
But in the 1800s Oxygen’s most active configuration was discovered, O3. By the late 1800s the first Medical Ozone Therapy machine was patented by the genius that we should thank for electricity, wireless, the radio, and the rotor motor; Nicola Tesla. Extensively used mostly in Germany, Spain, Cuba and growing.

Ozone therapy: A clinical review From J Nat Sci Biol Med. 2011 Jan-Jun; 2(1): 66–70:
“Ozone therapy has been utilized and heavily studied for more than a century. Its effects are proven, consistent, safe and with minimal and preventable side effects. Medical O3 is used to disinfect and treat disease. Mechanism of actions is by inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, stimulation of oxygen metabolism, activation of the immune system.”
Pain resolution- O3 has been found to be by many one of the most effective pain resolution techniques known. Chronic pain is associated with low oxygen delivery at the site of pain. O3 not only can decrease pain but also enhances healing at the same time. Most pain treatments don’t work well and tend to be dangerous:

NSAIDs- (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, etc.) can cause bleeding ulcers and damage the kidneys Acetaminophen- (Tylenol, Panadol or Acetaminophen) is the #1 cause for acute liver failure.
Narcotics are killing more people than illegal drugs.

The steroid injections or pills- raises blood sugar, blood pressure, and weight gain and lowers immunity.
Ozone- shown to be safe, effective, with long term benefits, inexpensive, has side benefits (like improvement in nerve function, regeneration of damaged tissues)

From the American Academy of Ozonotherapy website:
Prolozone® is an oxygen-ozone injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. Because in many cases Prolozone actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain-free. Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolozone is a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen-producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas.
By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.
Prolozone Therapy causes the joint to heal much more quickly This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities.

Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Ligaments will also not tighten on their own to their original length once injured. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose.

We can think of our joints as the hinge on a door. Until the hinge is fixed the door just isn’t going to open or close right and it’s the same exact story with our joints. If we are athletic or if we are just getting older there is some gradual and natural degeneration of the moving parts of the body due to ongoing recurrent mechanical stress, and failure of tissues to repair. This can come from a lack of nutrients, lack of circulation, aging and inflammation. When this happens the ligaments, tendons, and cartilage become dehydrated and weaker. This results in laxity and more abnormal mechanical stress and shearing forces on the joint. Abnormal shearing forces and torsion cause more joint dysfunction. This leads to a progressive separation of the ligaments from the superficial covering on the bone called the periosteum. This pulling on the periosteum creates a space, which the body fills in with new bone. These new parts of bone are called osteophytes. They are the premier signs of degenerative arthritis in & around the joint.

Osteophytes and joint laxity result in a reduced range of motion, which causes strain on surrounding muscles which then become either over or underworked leading to more dysfunction & pain.
Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in an increased range of motion and decreased pain.
