Hello people!

Read somewhere online that during the progression of chronic pain, our oxygen metabolism gets impaired, thereby delaying or even depriving our organs with much needed nutrients. And one way to improve o2 metab is to improve our microcirculation which could be done with carboxytherapy. Anyone here knows about this therapy? My back pain is getting worse and I want to try and explore alternative treatment. Cry Thank you in advance!

Hi conniechiwa,

I did a search and no one has discussed this "procedure" on the site. I googled it and it seems to be used mainly in the cosmetic surgery clinics in North America. There are many different treatments offered by clinics, which provide very little if any relief for chronic pain. They cost a lot of money and offer lots of hope to people who are suffering. Unfortunately very few offer any real relief, most take your money and hope.

If this treatment works, please let us know. Personally, I'd save my money.

Connichiwa,

I am currently using noninvasive transdermal CO2 therapy but I've never heard of this Carboxytheraoy-can you tell me a little bit more specifically about how it works? Can you measure the effect? (Perfusion index)?

Buyer beware!!!! Due to the current war on opioids we are suddenly seeing all sorts of so called pain therapy treatments popping up that we've never heard of----and without proper studies having been done to substantiate benefits on large groups of people.

I can't give you the information you are asking about because I've never heard of this. And I'm both an RN and PA and get all current information about CP from highly respected sources. If you can provide us with information about results of FDA studies regarding the use and benefits of this please do pass it on.

I'm always concerned about people spending money on anything for pain management by those praying on people desperate for help.

Please donate to help Chronicpainsite.com continue to help others.

My journey with chronic pain began over 30 years ago, while as a young nurse working spinal rehab, I injured my back lifting a patient. I am now fused from L2-S1. I have multiple thoracic and cervical issues. I'm a retired RN/PA and I know and understand the frustrations on both ends of the treatment spectrum of dealing with CP. It's been my goal since 2008, when we started this site, to reach out and help as many people in pain as possible. We will continue the fight as long as we can. Please, if you can help us continue to help you and others, donate. Thank you.

How do you measure the effects beyond feeling better? Can an oximeter record results from the treatments? What about the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin? This should shoot up if this works ...??
