Why is it that some injuries never heal, and go on to become areas of chronic pain and dysfunction?
These localized areas fail to heal because of a localized decrease in oxygen utilization.
Why does chronic pain and degeneration only occur in joints and ligaments instead of other tissues? And why do people heal so much more reliably when they are young than when they become older?
The answer in both cases has to do with decreased oxygen utilization. When there is trauma, the edema and inflammation cause a further localized decrease in oxygen utilization, which serves as a foundation for chronic pain and degeneration. The chronic pain leads to a further decrease in oxygen utilization.
Break that cycle by the application of ozone therapy, which maximizes oxygen absorption, and the cells and tissues can begin to do what they usually do so well – heal themselves.
