Ozone injections for pain

Sara - Shwright13@aol.com

I am interested in finding a practitioner who uses ozone injections for pain. I have heard of impressive results with this treatment.

My tailbone was removed on 12th April 2004. I am progressing nicely but continue have severe chronic pain in my lower back and also in my right arm and shoulder. Surgery has not helped those areas.

I live in Virginia. I am willing to travel to the nearest doctor I can find. Please include doctor's name, address and phone number.

Note from Jon Miles:

Ozone is a form of oxygen that is highly reactive. It is used for sterilising water. Use of ozone injections for pain has been described as a form of prolotherapy, in which an irritant is injected into the site of the pain, with the aim of causing the body to heal the cause of the pain.
