Madrid, May 13, 2024.- Ozone therapy for herniated discs is a highly effective treatment for disc protrusions and sciatica. Scientific evidence supports that direct injection of medical ozone into the lumbar, thoracic or cervical disc (discolysis) relieves back pain and reduces the need for conventional surgical interventions.

In this procedure, ozone is applied inside the diseased disc using an X-ray-guided needle. The objective is to reduce the size of the hernia or protrusion, relieve root compression, provide a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, and allow tissue regeneration. and offer long-lasting analgesia to surrounding areas.
