Winter is here – and so are the backaches, shoulder aches, knee pain, and wrist aches that result from participating in vigorous winter sports activities like skiing, skating, hockey, and snowboarding. Not to mention that it is also cold and flu season.
That is why, before you take to the ski slopes this winter or engage in various exhilarating outdoor activities, it is important to make sure your muscles and immune system are functioning at peak capacity to keep you in the best of health.
One of the fastest and most effective ways to boost your physical endurance is with ozone injection treatment. Let’s talk about how this revolutionary treatment works to help make you feel more alive and energetic, and where you can go in Caldwell to receive this outstanding energy booster.
The Cold Effects of Winter on Your Health and Wellness
It is scientifically proven that cold temperatures put increased stress on your cardiovascular system. It causes your blood vessels to constrict, it makes breathing shallower, and it thickens your blood – all of which can lead to increased muscular pain and discomfort.
Research also shows that rhinoviruses tend to replicate more efficiently at temperatures below 98 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the average core body temperature for a human. Consider that the temperature within your nasal cavity is approximately 91.4 degrees Fahrenheit, and you can see why your nose is regarded as a prime breeding ground for rhinoviruses.
Other studies have found that the majority of rhinovirus infections occur in freezing temperatures (32 degrees or below). To make matters worse, there is scientific evidence that blood pressure increases during cold winter days, thereby sparking an increase in the death rate due to heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular diseases.
Ozone Injections for Knees and Shoulders
For more than 100 years, medical ozone – a super-charged oxygen molecule – has been used to treat a wide variety of medical conditions, including muscle and joint pain and spasms. It serves as an alternative to conventional injection treatments (which usually comprise a steroid and an anesthetic) and to potentially addictive pain medications. Ozone injection treatment also has been found to stimulate the immune system, thereby improving your ability to ward off viral infections.
Ozone injection treatment is administered in the doctor’s office and requires no anesthesia. For patients who are uncomfortable with injections or have high anxiety towards needles, nitrous oxide is available upon request to keep them calm and unbothered while receiving the treatment.
Ozone therapy has been widely reported as effective in managing a broad range of conditions, including joint pain, muscle pain, herniated discs, sports injuries, back and neck pain, arthritis, and a sluggish immune system.
