The pain specialists at ACE Pain Management are able to provide cutting edge treatment opportunities for our patients suffering from chronic or acute pain. One such cutting edge treatment for pain includes the use of ozone gas injected into the area of the pain, resulting in pain relief for areas of the back and spine as well as for arthritis treatment.
In Houston, ACE Pain Management provides ozone treatment for pain through our clinic. This is a simple procedure that involves injecting a carefully combined and tailored mixture of ozone and a medical grade oxygen to the area that has been injured or damaged.
It is important to realize that ozone therapy has been used in medical treatment options since World War l. While originally used to treat wounds, it is now used to treat a variety of conditions from pain to wound healing, skin conditions and for digestive problems.
During ozone treatment for pain, the injection of the medical grade gasses causes the body’s antioxidant systems to activate. This, in turn, results in a release of immune factors in the body, including cytokines, that flood the area where the pain is present.
The result is the body’s own natural pain relief system waking up. Instead of just masking the pain, specific chemicals in the body are dispatched to the area, resulting in a healing of the tissue and a reduction or even a complete elimination of the pain depending on the type of spinal or musculoskeletal trauma or injury.
When considering ozone treatment for pain, our Houston pain specialists will complete a full evaluation of the cause of the pain. In cases of disc protrusions, sciatica and lax ligaments in the spine ozone therapy is extremely effective and can eliminate the need for surgeries and long recovery times.
