What is Prolozone?
For those suffering from chronic musculoskeletal or joint pain, Prolozone therapy can provide an opportunity to avoid surgery and ongoing discomfort.
Prolozone is an injection therapy that combines the principles of Neural therapy, Prolotherapy, and Ozone therapy. It involves injecting combinations of procaine, anti-inflammatory medications, homeopathic, vitamins, minerals, proliferants, and ozone/oxygen gas into degenerated or injured joints, and areas of pain.
Much like Prolotherapy, Prolozone introduces natural substances into damaged and inflamed tissues to promote the non-surgical reconstruction of tendons and ligaments. It works primarily through the stimulation of growth factors that fuel the healing process. The addition of highly reactive ozone produced in-office by a medical ozone generator can increase the rate of healing through further stimulation of fibroblasts within the joint.
In addition to stimulating tissue regeneration, Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in an increased range of motion and decreased pain.
Prolozone is also anti-microbial: meaning it kills viruses, bacteria (including Lyme), fungus and parasites. I have injected it into active skin infections with dramatic healing results.
