Your body is an amazing machine that has everything it needs to heal itself and improve your health. However, sometimes your body’s natural healing and repair process needs a little help. At The Chronic Pelvic Pain Center of Northern Virginia in Annandale, Virginia, Melissa A. Delgado, MD, FACOG, offers many innovative treatments that support your body’s natural abilities, including ozone therapy, which is therapeutic gas that stimulates your immune system. To learn more about the benefits of ozone therapy, call the office or request an appointment online.
Ozone therapy is an innovative form of alternative medicine that uses ozone, which is a gas comprised of three oxygen atoms, to improve your body’s oxygen levels and stimulate your immune system. Ozone therapy has been used to disinfect medical equipment and treat infections for more than 150 years without causing any side effects.
Ozone therapy boosts your immune system and can help improve many health conditions. Dr. Delgado may recommend ozone therapy to:
Ozone therapy may also support those battling an immune disorder such as human immunodeficiency (HIV).
Dr. Delgado can determine if you would benefit from ozone therapy when you come in for a consultation. She takes an integrative approach to care and offers many tools to help you achieve your health and wellness goals, including the use of traditional and alternative therapies.
Dr. Delgado performs your ozone therapy at the office. The method she uses to administer your ozone therapy may depend on your underlying need for treatment. To begin, Dr. Delgado first draws a sample of blood from your arm, which she then mixes with the ozone gas.
If you have a wound or damaged tissue, Dr. Delgado may inject your ozone-enriched blood directly into the damaged area to boost your immune powers and stimulate the repair process. For general health, she may simply inject the treated blood into your muscle.
Dr. Delgado provides specific instructions on activities following your ozone therapy and downtime if needed at all. To get the most from your ozone therapy, you may need more than one session. Dr. Delgado determines your therapy needs during your initial consultation.
After your ozone therapy, you may notice a reduction in pain and an improvement in energy. Many patients also report an improvement in skin health and nail strength.
