We have been using ozone therapy, during 5 years, in 200 patients
with different types of arthritis, for example: lumbar arthritis,
generalized arthrosis, hiposteoarthritis, knee arthrosis. In our
group of patients, 60 % female and 40 % of male were present (80 %
with more than 40 years old). Three groups of treatment were
considered: group I , using ozone therapy alone; group II, ozone
therapy plus medication (antinflamatory and/or analgesics drugs)
and group III, ozone therapy plus medication and physiotherapy. In
general. 85 % of improvement was obtained.
