Ozone Therapy Q&A

What is ozone therapy?

Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three supercharged oxygen atoms. Experts believe that ozone prevents the growth of harmful bacteria, boosts immune system function, disinfects and treats disease, and more. Ozone therapy also stimulates tissue regeneration, which alleviates chronic pain.

For what is ozone therapy used?

Ozone therapy is a multi-use treatment that can alleviate the symptoms of several conditions, including:


  • Knee pain
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Gum disease
  • Certain autoimmune diseases
  • Chronic pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome


As a safe, effective treatment, ozone therapy helps relieve pain and improves your body’s natural ability to take in and use oxygen.

How is ozone therapy administered?

There are several different ways to administer ozone into your body:

IV therapy

The most common form of ozone therapy, Dr. Chang can administer ozone into your bloodstream through IV therapy. First, he draws a small amount of blood and infuses it with ozone. Next, he injects the ozonated blood back into your body. The entire process takes about 40 minutes, so you can resume your normal activities after your appointment.

Prolozone injections

If you have tissue damage and chronic pain, Dr. Chang can inject ozone into your body along with anesthetics, vitamins, and minerals. This helps stimulate your body’s natural healing response and treat chronic pain.


Specialized cavity bags can facilitate the introduction of ozone gas directly into your urinary or digestive tract. In most cases, insufflation involves administering ozone gas through the rectum. While less common than IV therapy and prolozone injections, insufflation is an effective way to treat hemorrhoids, gynecological issues, and more.

Olive oil

Ozonated olive oil can be rubbed on the skin and gums to help fight gum disease and skin infections.


When flushed through the nasal cavities, ozonated water helps alleviate chronic sinus infections and prevent them from reoccurring. Some patients even drink ozonated water for its powerful therapeutic benefits.


When administered properly by a trained professional like Dr. Chang, ozone therapy can help relieve pain and improve your overall health.
