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.
