Other symptoms that accompany pain are often fatigue , poor tolerance to exertion, generalized stiffness, muscular contractures, sleep disorders, anxiety, irritability and depression.


How is ozone therapy applied when treating fibromyalgia?

Ozone therapy in the treatment of patients with fibromyalgia is usually used locally, through infiltration of painful points, and sometimes also systemically or autohemotherapy .


What effects does it have on the organism when it comes to calming the symptoms?

The oxygen-ozone infiltration in the painful points has an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect. If there are muscle contractions associated, it also acts as a muscle relaxant.

The autohemotherapy by increasing the oxygenation of all cells of the body involves a significant improvement of the general state and decreases the feeling of fatigue or fatigue that many patients refer.


Does the relief of symptoms continue over time?

The symptomatic improvement of fibromyalgia patients depends on a personalized therapeutic plan that includes pharmacological treatment, psychological therapy and physiotherapy. In this context, ozone therapy is very useful to initiate a general improvement that will allow the implementation of other therapies.
