Ozone and the World Cup

Ozone made its way into the World Cup! Said to be one of the best soccer players alive, Cristiano Ronaldo, uses ozone to quicken his recovery.

Here is a short and interesting article (sorry it's in Spanish, you can use Google translate!) that talks about Cristiano Ronaldo and his use of ozone.  The short article implies that he uses ozone injections directly into joints and/or soft tissues to speed up healing and recovery. 

"Among the supposed benefits of its injection is an improvement in microcirculation, vascularization and tissue oxygenation, as well as work as an antimicrobial agent, anti-inflammatory and stimulation of the body's defenses, and a protection against cellular aging."

Ozone can be used for a variety of health conditions and even as an aid to world-class athletes! 

For those who are not already aware, you can learn more about the direct joint and/or soft tissue ozone injections we do in our office here:

A quick search of PubMed yields this study done in 2017. "Comparison between intra-articular ozone and placebo in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study".  The conclusion of the 98 person study was that "the study confirms the efficacy of ozone concerning pain relief, functional improvement, and quality of life in patients with knee osteoarthritis."
