Degenerative joint disease, also called, arthrosis, osteoarthrosis, osteoarthritis, degenerative osteoarthritis, arthritis or rheumatism Hypertrophic.
It is a process of degeneration of articular cartilage and characterized by pain, deformity and impaired functional capacity of one or more joints.
This circumstance is due to aging.
10-15% of the population over 60 years is affected.
The objective is to improve the functionality of the joints and decrease articular destruction.
Osteoarthritis is characterized by the constant presence of degenerative joint changes remodeling and loss of articular cartilage.
Its symptoms manifested progressively, characterized by pain, stiffness, functional limitation, joint swelling, deformation and impact on quality of life.
The clinical picture depends on the affected region. So you can set a series of regional syndromes such as:
Osteoarthritis cervical (cervical spine) Astrosis temporomandibular jaw (Mandibular) Humeral arthrosis Gleno (Shoulder) Rizarthrosis thumb (Fingers hand) Coxoartrosis (coccyx and Lower back) Gamartrosis (knee and hip)
It focuses on improving symptoms, functional capacity and quality of life.
Ozone fully meet these premises, antiinflammatory action, improves pain therefore function, oxidative action of regulation, inflammatory phenomenon and improves its analgesic action, improves quality of life.
The ways to apply ozone are:
