What is ozone therapy?
Ozone therapy is a technique that uses ozone as a therapeutic agent. Ozone is an allotrope of oxygen derivatives, the molecule is composed of three oxygen atoms.
Medical ozone, which is a mixture of 5% ozone maximum and a 95% oxygen, was first used in medicine during the First World War for cleaning and disinfection of wounds. Debido a las características de este gas las indicaciones al tratamiento de la ozonoterapia son muy amplias y vienen determinadas por sus propiedades antiinflamatorias, antisépticas, de modulación del stress oxidativo y de mejoría de la circulación periférica y la oxigenación tisular. Due to the characteristics of this gas indications of ozone treatment are extensive and are determined by its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, modulation of oxidative stress and improvement of peripheral circulation and tissue oxygenation.
The concentration and mode of application of ozone therapy varies depending on the condition to be treated as the ozone concentration determines the type of biological effect that occurs and the mode of application marks its scope of action in the body. Las contraindicaciones de la ozonoterapia son muy pocas y solo se limitan a alergias al ozono, embarazo o el hipertiroidismo. Contraindications of ozone are very few and only limited to ozone allergies, pregnancy, or hyperthyroidism.
