The ozonoterapia is a teraupeutica technique that involves the application of an amount of oxygen with a given concentration of Ozone. Such concentration or amount will vary according to the pathology being treated and also the route of application. The aid has meant that ozone therapy in multiple areas of medicine has resulted in a generalization of its application in many countries, although Germany was a pioneer in the introduction of this technique.


The mixture of oxygen and ozone is to be applied at varying concentrations depending on the process to treat. Ozone therapy stimulates the regeneration of organic tissues, and also improve the microcirculation, leading to an improvement in tissue oxygenation. Ozone therapy also relaxes the membrane of erythrocytes, which enhances the microscopic circulation, and enhances the anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antibacterial and antiviral. Finally, it provides immunomodulatory properties on the immune system and regulates it.

Anyone can follow the treatment of ozone therapy: there is no problem due to age or other pathologies associated. About 8 or 10 sessions are usually necessary, but depends on the patient, the severity of the process and even the chronicity of the disease.


With ozone therapy we can treat many pathologies. These range from fibromyalgia arthritis rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, to osteoarthritis through sciatica. The use of ozone therapy also is indicated for rheumatic polymyalgia, tendinitis and lower back pain or Rachialgia.
