Oxygen and Ozone therapy is emerging as a better treatment option than surgery for people suffering from a slipped disc due to its minimally invasive procedure and speedy recovery.
Experts said the procedure, which was first tried in Europe, leaves no surgical scars on the skin and the patient can be discharged from hospital on the same day compared to surgery which takes weeks.
Slipped or herniated disk is a condition when one of the discs in the spine ruptures and the gel inside leaks out. It causes numbness and pain along the affected nerve. In severe cases, the patient may require surgery to remove or repair the slipped disc.
