Ozone Therapy in St. Petersburg, FL

Before we get into talking about Ozone Therapy in St. Petersburg and how it can help with pain, let’s first explain what it is. Ozone is a molecule consisting of 3 atoms of oxygen. It is colorless and has a slight odor. Its basic function in our atmosphere is to protect life from the harmful effects of UV radiation. Researchers believe it has many therapeutic effects. In medical use, it is a gas produced from medical grade oxygen and administered in precise therapeutic doses, and never via inhalation, to help with a variety of health conditions.

According to research conducted in 2018 by the National Institute of Health, when ozone comes into contact with body fluids, the resulting reactions form more proteins and red blood cells. This increases the oxygen supply in your body. Ozone therapy may also disrupt unhealthy processes in your body. Research by ScienceDirect.com has shown that ozone therapy can inactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and protozoa.

Ozone therapy is becoming an effective treatment option for musculoskeletal disorders as it promotes tissue hyperoxygenation as well as treating painful syndromes affecting muscles, tendons, and joints.

Ozone therapy has been in use since the 1800s. In 1896, the genius Nikola Tesla patented the first Ozone generator in the US, later forming the “Tesla Ozone Company.” During the first world war (1914-18) doctors familiar with Ozone's antibacterial properties, and with few other medical resources available to them, applied it topically to infected wounds and discovered Ozone not only remedied infection, but also had hemodynamic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Ozone therapy has been utilized and extensively studied for many decades altogether. Its effects are proven, consistent and with minimal side effects. Medical ozone, used to disinfect and treat disease, has been around for over 150 years. Used to treat infections, wounds and multiple diseases, Ozone therapy's effectiveness has been well-documented. It has been used to disinfect drinking water before the turn of the last century. Ozone was known to treat as many as 114 diseases.

In 2019, the FDA released a warning about inhaling ozone because it can irritate the lungs and cause fluid buildup that makes it difficult to breathe. We do not allow that to be done in this clinic. The process we use to create Ozone is a closed system, so none of the gas is allowed to leak out at any time.

Though Ozone therapy has been around for over 100 years, according to Medical News Today, researchers are currently exploring the effects of ozone therapy on the human body to identify any potential therapeutic benefits. There are not enough large, long-term studies to understand all potential adverse effects for the treatment.
