Prolozone Treatment

Oxygen-ozone therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar disk herniation that exploits the biochemical properties of a gas mixture of oxygen and ozone. Oxygen-ozone therapy is a useful treatment for lumbar disk herniation that has failed to respond to conservative management before recourse to surgery or when surgery is not possible. Oxygen-ozone therapy is one of the different minimally invasive treatments currently available. It is used in medicine to treat different conditions.

It is an injection of oxygen and ozone used to treat a herniated disc. There are two types: one is an injection outside of the disc and one is an injection directly into the disc. The one that “everybody is talking about” is the one directly into the disc.

It is an outpatient procedure performed using a local anesthesia and twilight anesthesia. A needle is guided to your disc under fluoroscopic (live x-ray) guidance and a mixture of oxygen and ozone is injected directly into your herniated disc.
