Popular Use Today
Despite a recent surge in popularity, ozone therapy has actually been utilized and extensively studied for many decades. A Google search will return a wide variety of applications and delivery methods for ozone therapy. It can be administered by injection under the skin, into the blood stream, or into soft tissue. The cosmeceutical industry uses ozone injections in anti-aging and wrinkle treatments for the face and neck; athletes take advantage of shorter recovery times for intense training and injuries; and doctors often prescribe ozone injection therapy for patient who are non-surgical and facing long term physical therapy.
At Chah Acutherapy, ozone injections are used to deliver and disseminate homeopathic, healing solutions to target pain points in soft tissue. The solutions themselves are selectively formulated for specific purpose, such as chronic pain conditions, inflammation due to injury, scarring, and acute conditions. A certified ozone therapy practitioner with many years of acupuncture experience, Dr. Chah injects the healing solution followed by ozone infusion to both deliver and disburse the formula into soft tissue. This method of dispersion is highly effective in both accuracy of delivery and speed of healing and recovery to injured or inflamed tissue.
Historical and Scientific Development of Ozone in Wound Care and Fighting Disease
Medical ozone has been used to disinfect and treat disease for over 150 years. Its effectiveness in treating infections, wounds and multiple diseases is well documented. It has been used to disinfect drinking water before the turn of the last century and was known to treat as many as 114 diseases.
During the first world war (1914-1918) doctors familiar with ozone’s antibacterial properties applied it topically to infected wounds and discovered O3 not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties.
Today scientists understand that ozone works to sterilize wounds and damaged tissue. Sterilization refers to any process that eliminates (removes) or kills (deactivates) all forms of life and other biological agents, as well as viruses, including transmissible agents such as fungi, bacteria, mold, and spore forms.
Because ozone is a sterilization agent and a natural anti-inflammatory which stimulates the regrowth of collagen and cartilage, it is an excellent material for injection into areas of inflammation and degeneration.
