Oxygen Ozone Therapy

Ozone therapy uses a mixture of oxygen and ozone for therapeutic purposes. The aim of the treatment consists essentially in increasing the available amount of oxygen or of its radicals, by introducing ozone into the body through a needle and a specific device.

One of the most widespread applications of ozone therapy  concerns the treatment of lumbar and cervical herniated (slipped) discs. The treatment is based on the injection of a gas mixture of oxygen and ozone in the surrounding area of the back, in order to stimulate a healing process. The treatment requires indicatively ten sessions, each session lasting a few minutes.

After a few weeks, ozone and oxygen induce tissue dehydration, thus eliminating compression on nerve roots and ensuring relief from pain, especially in case of an acute slipped disc.

Ozone therapy has other fields of application in lower back pain, neck pain, hip and knee arthrosis, tendinitis and shoulder periarthritis, epicondylitis.

At Blue Medical Center, the painful component of oxygen-ozone therapy injections is minimized thanks to preventive pain management.

The treatment is administered by specialist doctors.

Perineal rehabilitation

In the physical therapy outpatient clinic, specific manual and physical treatments are given for perineal rehabilitation. Nowadays, patients, especially women, are not obliged anymore to choose between resignation or surgery when facing issues such as urinary incontinence or prolapses.

Today, so-called “conserving” methods are available, which are very effective and above all capable of avoiding or integrating the more traditional invasive strategies for pelvic-perineal disorders.

  • Stress and urge urinary incontinence
  • urinary incontinence in outcomes of radical prostatectomy or TURP
  • prolapse of pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, rectum)
  • obstructive constipation
  • pelvic-perineal pain (chronic pelvic pain, vulvodynia, interstitial cystitis, pudendal syndrome, vestibulitis, clitoral pain, vaginism…)
  • painful scars (episiotomy, perineal laceration, Caesarian section)
  • Outcomes of pelvic surgery (hysterectomy, cystocele, rectocele, etc.…)
  • Diastasis of rectus abdominis muscles
  • Anal incontinence

Medicine has progressed remarkably and through PELVIC FLOOR REHABILITATION important results may be obtained; the pelvic floor is of fundamental importance in improving a person’s quality of life.

Our packet for pelvic floor rehabilitation, besides the important and fundamental goal of preventing disorders concerning the pelvic floor, is aimed at treating and/or improving pelvic-perineal diseases, by adopting a complete and personalized therapeutic approach.

Perineal Rehabilitation, prior an accurate diagnosis, nowadays has more and more become the first therapy choice, since:

  • it is of documented effectiveness (success in 80-95% of cases)
  • it has no side effects
  • it is painless
  • there is no need to take any medication
  • it can be repeated
  • it is personalized

It is recommended in cases of:

  • rectal, uterine or bladder prolapse
  • post-menopause
  • after surgery (hemorrhoids, hysterectomy, prostatectomy)
  • constipation or fecal and/or urinary incontinence
  • painful sexuality
  • after childbirth
  • after a Caesarian section or other gynecological surgery
  • preparation for childbirth

Results that may be obtained:

  • a painless back, with a pelvis and perineum working correctly
  • aligned posture and less tension on shoulders
  • better control of muscles when sneezing or coughing, without annoying urine leakages
  • more awareness during childbirth
  • pre-surgery preparation for better surgery outcomes
  • faster rehabilitation after surgery
  • improving post-surgery functionality
  • recovery of sexual pleasure

Rehabilitation is in any case a valid support because it leaves the patient with instructions and autonomy after ending the treatment, making him/her aware of the correct movements to be adopted in everyday life so as to prevent relapses and new disorders.


  • involuntary loss of urine/gas/stools
  • urge to urinate/defecate
  • the need to urinate often
  • difficulty in emptying the bladder completely
  • bladder/ anal heaviness
  • pain during sexual intercourse
  • reduced sexual perception
