Ozone (O3) is a gas made of three oxygen atoms. You already know that you need oxygen to live, so it probably comes as no surprise that extra oxygen can be beneficial. And while oxygen bars have popped up across the country to deliver some of the health benefits of increased oxygen in the body, they can’t hold a candle to ozone therapy. This innovative treatment has the power to transform your health.
Today, researchers are still finding new uses for ozone therapy. It’s been studied as a treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), wound healing in people with diabetes, osteoarthritis of the knee, and more.
At Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics in Trophy Club and Dallas, Texas, we don’t think you should have to wait until ozone therapy gains widespread traction to have access to this transformative treatment. Dr. Wade McKenna, and the rest of our team, offer ozone therapy so our patients can use this treatment to improve their health and well-being.
A Look at Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy can be administered in numerous ways. Our team at MOAB specializes in intravenous ozone therapy. After inserting an IV, we take a small amount of your blood and introduce the ozone to it. We also add heparin to prevent clotting and pass it through a UV light to kill microbes, sterilizing it to ensure your safety.
Adding ozone to just 5% of your blood, then reintroducing it to your body, can deliver a wide range of health benefits. Specifically, we use ozone therapy to:
- Kill harmful bacteria and viruses
- Support faster healing
- Boost your immune system
- Improve your energy levels
- Deliver anti-aging effects
- Support weight loss
- Improve brain function
- Minimize inflammation
We also use ozone therapy to treat chronic pain and help our patients with the following conditions:
- Cystic fibrosis
Clearly, ozone therapy has a wide range of uses. But is it right for you?
Who Can Benefit From Ozone Therapy
Dr. McKenna doesn’t prescribe ozone therapy to every patient — but he does use it frequently because it can deliver so many benefits to the body. There are specific conditions like the ones listed above that make you an obvious candidate for this treatment.
But you don’t have to have any health complications to benefit from ozone therapy. If you’re curious about this treatment, how it works, and how it can help you feel your best, ask Dr. McKenna or one of our dedicated team members about it. We have a wide range of patients using ozone therapy, from people looking for relief from specific conditions to healthy individuals looking to improve their immune system, cognitive function, and energy levels.
In other words, if you’re interested in ozone therapy, don’t hesitate to ask one of our team members at Dr. McKenna’s Orthopedics and Biologics if this treatment could be right for you. In many cases, ozone therapy is an excellent way to support your health and wellness goals.
