We studied the clinical effect of oxygen-ozone treatment of lumber disc herniation. Oxygen-ozone was administered by percutaneous injection (35-yong/ml), 6-15 ml into the intralumbar disc, and a few patients needed re-injection 48 hours later. We treated 323 patients with 433 discs with a total effective rate of 77.7%. Treatment of lumber disc herniation by oxygen-ozone was simple, safe and effective. With minimal trauma, oxygen-ozone not only oxidizes the proteoglycan in the nucleus, leading to its contraction, but also has an anti-inflammatory effect and alleviates pain. No complications of treatment have been encountered so far.
