Cortisone Vs. Ozone Injections

misc image

Pain-relieving steroid shots are commonly used for knee arthritis although they only provide short-term benefits and do not slow the progression of the disease. Could ozone injections be a better solution?

Studies were presented this week at the American College of Rheumatology's annual meeting in San Francisco discussing steroid injections as well as Ozone injections.

One study found that a popular therapy, steroid drug injections, do nothing to slow progression of osteoarthritis in the knee. Another shows that injecting Ozone gas into the knee helped more than injecting air alone.
