After reviewing the medical literature we have decided to offer medical ozone injections to relieve painful joints. We are excited at this addition to our practice as it is yet another excellent option for the treatment of pain. It has been used for many years in Europe with success, and there are many studies on its use and effectiveness in the literature. We will be posting some of these under our research page in the near future. Medical ozone is injected into the affected joint following a local anaesthetic injection and is well-tolerated.
