The Effect of Oxygen-Ozone Treatment on Posture
The way we step, the functioning of the oculomotor muscles, the dental occlusion and the mobility of the temporomandibular joint influence our posture and balance.
A dysfunction at one of these levels or the presence of skin scars affects the kinematic chain of movement, generating muscle contractions, decreased joint mobility, vertebral static disorders and, finally, bone changes. A large number of the adult population, but also of children, due to sedentary lifestyle and inadequate nutrition, in the absence of sustained physical activity, face postural disorders. Sometimes, excessive physical activity (physical exertion) or incorrect exercise results in the accumulation of lactic acid and muscle contractions, leading to postural disorders.
Oxygen-ozone therapy administered in the form of periarticular subcutaneous infiltrations or along the spine, reduces muscle contractions, relieves pain, having a beneficial effect on posture and balance.
A study of 20 patients with vertebral static disorders (argued by three-dimensional vertebral measurements with the Spine 3D system, Sensor Medica Italy) and balance disorders (recorded on the baropodometric and stabilometric platform), treated with an oxygen-ozone mixture, in low concentrations (8-10µg/ml), shows the immediate effects of this therapy on pain and posture (balance, vertebral statics, etc.).
The lack of allergic reactions and side effects of oxygen-ozone therapy recommends it in the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, caused by vertebral static disorders. Of course, to this should be added the correction of the posture disorder, which was the basis of the illness.
