Has anyone heard of this kind of treatment? My pdoc told me about it last month and thought it would give me some hope, I doubt it will be available in Canada for a long time.

The meds I take are oxycontin, gabapentin, prozac, lithium, clonazepam, pariet.

Hi, Saphari,
Did your doctor me a hyperbaric chamber? If so, I've not heard that being used just for a herniated disk, but have heard some experimental programs are using it for forms of chronic pain - mostly CRPS (RSD).

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Oxygen-ozone therapy is a minimally invasive treatment for lumbar disk herniation that exploits the biochemical properties of a gas mixture of oxygen and ozone. We assessed the therapeutic outcome of oxygen-ozone therapy and compared the outcome of administering medical ozone alone with the outcome of medical ozone followed by injection of a corticosteroid and an anesthetic at the same session.

Once I got the info from my doc, I just googled "oxygen/ozone therapy for herniated discs", I got a lot of info and hope it is approved in Canada soon, I feel like there is some hope.

Hey they might be onto something that has a treatment that more drugs are not involved. hummm could be a good thing as long as we don't turn into a screaming drawf from it.
