The simple answer is yes, ozone injections for knee pain can help! But how can ozone therapy potentially help relieve knee pain, and which ozone therapy would be best for this? With an increase in ozone treatment popularity and the variety of ozone therapies available today at the American Regenerative Clinic locations, it’s best to learn which therapies are best for which ailments.
If you suffer from chronic knee pain, your daily routine and quality of life are likely to be affected. Knee pain can stop people from doing the things they love most, and the things that keep the rest of their bodies staying healthy like exercising. With ozone therapies available today, you can go back to living your regular healthy lifestyle more quickly, and without invasive surgeries that have you in recovery for weeks or months!
Prolozone for Knee Pain
Prolozone therapy is recommended for joint pain or injury and therefore is the most common regenerative treatment used for knee pain. This treatment option uses ozone injections to provide nutrition and oxygen to specific areas of the body or specific joints. It is a natural, non-surgical, and minimally invasive treatment made up of two parts. First, nutrition is added back into the injured area (such as the vertebrae, ligament, tendon, muscle, connective tissue, joint space, etc.) by injecting a syringe of liquid vitamins and minerals into that area of the body. A part of this solution is homeopathics, which aid in the control of inflammation and swelling and allow better circulation.
Immediately after the vitamin and mineral solution is injected, ozone is injected into the affected area to infiltrate and spread the solution further than the initial injection can carry it. This allows the solution to become more far-reaching and cover not only the impacted joint, but the muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and tissues surrounding the area. This two-step process starts the regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak or unstable.
High Dose Ozone Injections for Knee Pain
High Dose Ozone is a non-invasive ozone therapy that strengthens weakened areas of the body while improving mobility and pain management. It is the second form of ozone therapy that can be used to help with knee pain. It supplies nearly 50 times the amount of ozone of regular intravenous ozone therapy. Because of the 10-pass method which is used to administer the treatment, it better saturates the red blood cells with oxygen which allows the ozone to penetrate deeper and to greater areas of the body. High Dose Ozone also stimulates the production of new stem cells, activates existing ones, and kills bacteria and viruses.
Benefits of High Dose Ozone therapy can include reduced swelling, reduced pain and inflammation in joints, such as knee joints, limiting damage in the affected area, improving circulation, accelerated healing, slowing the effects of damage from disease, improving quality of life, and improving mobility.
The Functional Medicine Approach at the American Regenerative Clinic
So how will we decide which ozone therapy is right for your knee pain? It all begins with our functional medicine approach. Functional medicine is basically a patient-centered approach to treatment where practitioners and patients work in collaboration to personalize a treatment plan to address the underlying causes of disease. Our practitioners will not just focus on how to relieve your knee pain, but they’ll work to discover why you have knee pain in the first place and tackle the triggers behind the pain as well. Functional medicine allows practitioners to practice the treatment of the whole individual, instead of just eliminating a set of symptoms and treating those.
