Your spine includes 26 bones (vertebrae), which are connected by the intervertebral discs. These discs protect the bones, while providing the flexibility of the spine.
A large part of the pain in the lumbar region is caused by diseases of the disks themselves, such as a hernia. If you have a herniated disc, you should not immediately resort to surgical intervention, because there is another solution – ozone therapy.
Symptoms of Herniated Disc
- Herniated discs of the lumbar area
There is pain in the lower back, which goes down to the feet. You may feel numbness in the extremities.
- Herniated cervical spine disk
Symptoms of this form of the disease are pain in the neck, head and shoulders.
- Herniated thoracic disk
It is accompanied by pain in the chest area and medical drugs don’t really help.
Spinal Disk Hernia Treatment
Ozone therapy – a perfect solution, because most patients are not even aware that this spinal disorder is amenable to non-surgical treatment.
This is a special technique, which is a course of injections of ozone in the damaged disk area and paravertebral muscles.
Ozone is able to reduce the hernia and helps the body produce the much needed antioxidants, thus neutralizing toxins. In addition, ozone has analgesic properties and relieves muscle spasms.
Unfortunately, this procedure is not for everyone. For people with impaired motor functions and arthrosis, this treatment is contraindicated.
There are a number of other cases where contraindications may occur such as pregnancy, hemophilia, ozone intolerance, bleeding disorder, fever, and ozone therapy cannot be carried out to children up to 6 years old. If you don’t have anything like this, you can safely go to the doctor and ask for intradiscal ozone therapy.
