The lumbar part of the human spine consists of 5 vertebrae and discs.  The lumbar region plays an important role in carrying the weight of the body. The task of the vertebrae in the spine is to surround and protect the spinal cord, with cartilage between them. 

Lumbar disc herniation is the compression of the nerves coming out of the spinal cord when the cartilage between the vertebrae is displaced, slipped or torn due to strain.  Sometimes a hernia occurs as a result of damage and weakening of the ring in the outer part of the disc. There are causes such as lifting heavy loads, accidents, old age, overweight, staying stationary for a long time, lifting loads from the floor in the wrong position, excessive birth, and falling.

How is Ozone Treatment for Lumbar Hernia?

The main function of the discs between the vertebrae is to surround the vertebrae and protect them against damage. If the discs between the vertebrae are damaged for any reason, a hernia occurs. The jelly-like part of the disc slides and presses on the nerve tissue. As a result of this damage, swelling and water retention occur in the disc.

The herniated disc causes severe pain in the lower back and leg. 

In ozone therapy, ozone is given into the disc. In this way, the disc, which causes herniation by retaining water and swelling as a result of damage, is repaired. Free oxygen radicals are prevented, the mechanical swelling of the disc decreases and shrinks. Thus, the pain caused by a herniated disc is eliminated.

In addition, ozone therapy sends blood cells to the area via blood vessels and provides active oxygen supply. This prevents the inflammation caused by the herniated disc and the damaged tissue is treated quickly.

How Many Sessions Does Ozone Therapy Take?

Ozone therapy, known as discosan, which is performed with thin dental needles on the 2 sides of the waist, can last between 5-10 sessions.
