Hi Sonia,

Ozone therapy is safe and very effective for back pain. Go through

We started this in India and currently perform this in Gurgaon and Delhi at Doctor Kares Hospital (www.doctorkares.com or 9990301101).

Ozone is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and is safe as it is rapidly converted to oxygen. Happy to share more.

All the best!
Dr. Kumar

I am Dr Debjyoti Dutta. Back pain is one of the common problem encountered in aged population.

Lets discuss a little about the causes of back pain and treatment. It is estimated that about 80% of general population suffer from back pain in some part of their whole life. And at a given point about 30% of population suffer from some kind of back pain.

Facet joint syndrome:

Evaluation -> conservative management with medicines & physical therapy -> diagnostic facet joint inj. -> radio frequency procedure.

Discogenic pain due to Internal Disc Disrruption:

Evaluation => conservative management with medicines & physical therapy -> few shots of caudal epidural steroid inj. -> provocative discogram -> radio frequency procedure -> disc replacement or fixation

Central canal stenosis:

Evaluation -> conservative management with medicines & physical therapy -> caudal epidural steroid inj. -> radio frequency procedure.

Disc prolapse:

Evaluation -> conservative management with medicines & physical therapy -> Transforaminal epidural block -> disc procedures (like Percutaneous disc decompression, ozone nucleolysis etc.) -> endoscopic discectomy procedures.

Sacro-iliac(SI) joint pain:

Evaluation -> conservative management with medicines & physical therapy -> diagnostic SI joint inj. -> radio frequency procedure.

among the above causes the most common cause is facet joint arthopathy.
So for your problem I would suggest proper evaluation and treatment. If u want permanent cure dont go for any other form of treatment. If u state ur state I will suggest u interventional pain physician near ur city.

Dear priyagne, your doctor is very right regarding pain killer tablets.its always better to have a diagnosis and treatment accordingly rather than having symptomatic treatment in long run.
