Ozone Therapy (Intradiscal)
Medical ozone injection therapy is in excellent pain relief treatment modality. The injection of oxygen-ozone into muscles and discs has been used since 1980s in European countries to successfully treat patients suffering from disc herniation. It is also used for many other painful conditions such as neck, back, shoulder, knee, joint, hip, and muscle pain. Conservative care should be exhausted prior to any surgery. It is an effective non-surgical alternative treatment for disc herniations. This has been demonstrated by several published studies over time as a minimally invasive nonsurgical treatment option for disc herniations. Multiple studies also demonstrated that ozone injections are very safe, with a near zero complication rate.
The FDA states that ozone is a toxic gas no known useful medical application in specific, adjunctive or preventive therapy. Numerous research has shown worldwide that there is a “therapeutic window” that has been determined and ranges between 10-80 mcg/ml. The concentration that will be used in between 50-55 mcg/ml plus or -10%. Ozone is a gas not a liquid. Medical Oxygen O2 and ozone O3 made from the oxygen. It is the extra O that does all the work.

“A few months back I tweaked my back was having severe stabbing pain in my lower back that was debilitating. My PT/Chiro ordered an MRI that revealed numerous issues with my L1-L5. He consulted with a surgeon who recommended for me to see a pain management physician. Chiro has worked with Dr. Williams for a number of years and highly recommended him. We had an initial consult with Dr. Williams and he patiently spent time explaining his options and procedures. We decided to go with his recommendation of O3+Stem cell. I was a bit dubious, but had to do something to relive the pain. First attempt almost immediately got rid of the pain, with the exception of some soreness. A few days later PT inadvertently tweaked the back again and it was excruciating. Dr. Williams promptly brought me in for a quick follow-up. Amazingly I have been basically pain free. After a few days I've was completely off pain meds/anti-inflammatories. The relief is huge. I quickly went from dubious to full convert.” (Actual patient)
