Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
ozone therapy for PIVD (prolapsed inter-vertebral Disc ) is available in many centre in India ,as it shrinks the prolapsed part of inter-vertebral disc.First discuss in details with the orthosurgeon who is doing it .It is effective in good number of cases & avoid surgical intervention.So go head.
Wish you good health

dear pt
you had ask for ozone treatment for diffuse disc bulge at said levels,this treatment is not USA ,FDA APPROVED,BETTER TO GO WITH PULSE RF INTRADISCAL PERCUTANEOUS NUCLEOTOMY IS SUPERIOR TECH NOW DAYS IN INDIA,
SACRALISATION IS NON TREATABLE WITH ANY MEANS BECAUSE ITS ANATOMICAL ANOMALY.
OZONE TREATMENT IS SHORT LIVED WITH DEFINITE CHANCE OF RECURRENCE.
DEAR DONOT GO WITH ANY SURGICAL MEANS,NOT COMPATABLE WITH YOUR CASE.

1. Mild loss of normal cervical lordosis with multilevel disc displacements c
C3-4 through C7-t1 most pronounced for a leftward radiculopathy at C7-T1, a left paracentral and proximal foraminal protrusion/extrusion abuts and flattens the left paracentral cord resulting in borderline mild central canal stenosis with narrowing of the proximal foraminal entrance and abutment of the existing left C8 nerve root.
2. Additionally at C6-7 where a broad based central/left paracentral protrusion abuts and flattens the ventral cord resulting in borderline mild central canal stenosis. Moderate to severe left foraminal narrowing secondary to uncinate hypertrophy with abutment of the exiting left C7 nerve root.
3. Shallow broad based disc displacement C3-4 without cord compression or central canal stenosis. Mild left foraminal narrowing with abutment of the exiting left C4 nerve root.
4. Central protrusion C4-5 abuts and mildly flattens the ventral cord.
5. Shallow broad based disc displacement C5-6 eccentric to the right with borderline mild central canal stenosis without cord compression.

Sir, my quarry is, whether my case is operative or not ? sir, here i am quoting my MRI report of SI joints- 1.both SI joints show normal space, with out any evidence of fluid within the joint. 2.there is no evidence of erosion of the subcondral plate. the subcondral marrow is normal & there is no evidence of edema fatty infiltration or sclerosis. 3.the adjacent soft tissues are normal. NOTE IS Made OF: a) large central protrusion (With annular tear) at L4/5 level compressing thecal sac . b) large central extrusion at L5/S1 level compressing bilateral S1 descending nerve roots. IMPRESSION: normal study of SI joints.
