What is Prolozone Therapy?
Prolozone is a regenerative injection therapy at the forefront of integrative and anti-aging medicine. It is being used with incredibly positive results for joint pain, tendons, ligaments, and scar therapy.
The word “Prolozone” is a combination of the words Prolo meaning “proliferation” and zone for “ozone gas”. This treatment essentially stimulates the body’s self-healing mechanisms down to the cellular level. The nutrients and gas encourage the cells to proliferate and regrow. There are many homeopathic and natural injection therapies used to stimulate healing in joints and ligaments naturally. Prolozone is a thoughtful combination of many therapies (that work well) including Prolo therapy, Neural therapy, ozone injections, and homeopathic remedies.
What Does the treatment involve?
Prolozone therapy involves injecting a mixture or homeopathic preparations, anti-inflammatories, and nutrients followed by ozone gas for regenerative and anti-microbial action in joints, ligaments, tendons and even scars. The procedure for Joint injections requires only 1 poke to administer the regenerative solution and gas. Before injection a freezing spray is used to minimize sensation of a needle poke. The process is very comfortable with very little to no pain involved with the injection. Patients generally leave the office significantly improved and many times without pain. The entire treatment is usually no longer than 15min.
What conditions do Prolozone Injections treat?
Knee pain (injury, meniscus, and tendonitis)
Shoulder pain (rotator cuff injuries, meniscus, and tendonitis)
Elbow pain and tendinitis
Pain in the thumb joint
Chronic back pain
Joint pains from chronic infection such as Lyme disease
How many treatments do you need?
This may vary depending on the condition you are treating. Ligaments and tendons generally need less treatment to gain full recovery. Generally, for joints pains we see resolution with between 2-4 treatments though this does not apply to every situation. Some patients will return for pain management on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. If you are curious about how this treatment can work for you it is best to contact the office and set up a short consult with the doctor for assessment.
