Ozone is a form of supercharged oxygen. When you breathe, you take oxygen into your body, extracting it from the air and using it to oxygenate your blood. Oxygen has two atoms, which are the molecular building blocks of all matter. Ozone contains three atoms and is less stable than regular oxygen.
You’d probably think of the ozone layer in the atmosphere around Earth if you’ve come across the name before. However, the upper reaches of the planet aren’t the only place to find ozone. You have it in your body, as your white blood cells produce ozone when the immune system activates.
Medical-grade ozone is extremely safe when used by experienced providers like Dr. Babcock.
Ozone has many different uses in modern health care. Some of these include:
One of the primary uses of ozone is in treating chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Chronic pain often develops because your body can’t complete the process of healing damaged tissues. Injecting ozone into the site of your chronic pain triggers a fresh round of healing when the original repair wasn’t sufficient.
Ozone in its natural state is a gas, so when injected into your body it readily disperses through the soft tissues. Ozone goes towards the area of inflammation, which means it floods the most severely affected tissues without needing to be directed.
Ozone also promotes faster healing in connective tissues and muscles.
Ozone injections are an exceptionally safe form of therapy, so the chances are very high that you’d be an ideal candidate for this treatment.
If you have chronic pain it can be very difficult to cure, and many patients use medication as their primary therapy. Medication does have its place in some treatment plans, but it fails to do anything about the underlying cause of your pain.
Ozone therapy is a safe, well-established alternative treatment that can help heal even old injuries and restore your health and quality of life.
