Ozone Injections in St. George UT

Chiropractic St. George UT Ozone Injections

What Is An Ozone Injection in St. George UT? We use medical-grade oxygen (O2) combined with an ozone generator to make O2/O3. We fill a syringe with it and inject it into a selected area to treat painful, injured, and damaged tissues.

Typically ozone is combined in our office with a homeopathic solution but it does well on its own and we see the BEST results when combining it with platelet therapies.

Our chiropractors don't inject into the joints, but in this case, close is good enough. Most of the time someone says they got an injection it is into a joint. However, we focus on injections that are subcutaneous (under the skin) and intramuscular (in muscles). One would think that these routine types of injections would not be good enough. Yet there is great evidence to show that a joint can be benefited without having to go inside of it. We love it because it's easy and much safer.

If we can get close we can get results and the surrounding area is benefited as well.


What About Cortisone in St. George UT?

Have you ever wondered why you're told after getting a cortisone injection that you are not eligible to receive another one for around 3-6 weeks?

Is it because that's how long it stays effective? That may be what they want you to believe but the biggest reason is that it's dangerous to do too much too soon. Corticosteroids like cortisone kill 3 things: 1) Pain 2) Inflammation 3) Tissue. That's great until you get to number 3.

I find it interesting that thousands of these injections are given every day for conditions that are degenerative in nature.

Many patients talk about conversations similar to this: "Mrs. Jones, you will need to return to repeat this injection 3 or 4 times this year to help with the pain. We can do it until the point where you will need to have it replaced." In addition, they were given the caution that more frequent injections would lead to faster degeneration. How convenient that the treatment for your degenerating arthritic knee is to inject it with a substance that will lead to further degeneration until surgery is required. Both treatments are often given by the same entity.


What Are the Side Effects?

Pretty much none - - it's oxygen!

The most dangerous form of ozone therapy is safer than Aspirin!

Getting injected can leave you feeling sore though. We try to make our injections as comfortable as possible but there can be some pain. Mainly in the form of a deep feeling of pressure or sometimes burning that will begin to dissipate within minutes and be completely gone within 48 hours.


How Long Does It Last? How Many Do I Need?

Truthfully ozone can turn things around and create a permanent solution but more often than not it takes some repetition. Occasionally we do see one-and-done situations, but a good rule of thumb is to expect 3-5 treatments.
