Medical Ozone therapy has been around for many decades, but has only recently been introduced to UK practices. Healand Clinic offers both ozone infusions and ozone injections, both of which are offered as pain management treatments.
Ozone kills bacteria, viruses and fungi, is a strong anti-inflammatory, and helps regulate autoimmune conditions. Medical ozone therapy involves introducing precise concentrations and dosages of ozone into the body. This can be done via IV therapy, through rectal insufflation or via injections.
Headland Clinic offers ozone infusions, which are very useful in treating autoimmune conditions including rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease etc, for the detoxification of organs and having an anti-inflammatory effect systemically.
Ozone infusions are administered either intravenously - blood is drawn out via a needle into a glass chamber, ozone gas is mixed with blood before being re-infused into vein - or rectally, where a thin silicone tube inserted into the rectum and ozone gas pushed through the tube over 15-20 mins.
This is a very safe procedure - no immediate effects will be felt. Rectal insufflation can cause sensation of bloating and uneasiness, however this should resolve within 30 minutes of the procedure.
Depending on the type of treatment received, five to ten sessions may be required, with sessions taking place every two to four weeks.
WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM OZONE INFUSIONS?
Ozone infusions may be recommended for:

Ozone infusions have been shown to have anti-ageing properties with increased oxygen delivery to cells and tired organs.

Neither ozone infusions, nor ozone injections are available on the NHS. Book a consultation now to find out if ozone treatments are right for you.
We also offer medical ozone injections at Healand Clinic. Ozone, when injected in or around an affected joint, has strong analgesic effects and healing properties.
Ozone can help with chronic pain and inflammation, and encourages healing and recovery of joints, cartilage, ligaments and bones.
Before administering an injection of ozone to a painful joint, an ice pack is applied to the area for one minute. Ozone gas is then injected into the affected area subcutaneously (using very shallow injections) with a very fine bore needle.
You may feel a stinging sensation as ozone gas diffuses through skin layers. However this should last less than five minutes.
Though for some patients, one session may suffice, others may need to return for ‘top up’ injections to maintain the benefits of ozone therapy.
WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM OZONE INJECTIONS?
Ozone injections may be recommended for:
Joint pain sufferers regardless of underlying cause.
Patients suffering with acute muscle spasms, acute back spasms, chronic back spasms, post traumatic pain, prolapsed discs in vertebrae, arthritis in the knees, wrists, shoulders or hips, sciatica.
