Prolozone is one of our many regenerative treatments for pain. It uses ozone, the most active type of oxygen, to naturally repair soft-tissue damage in your body.
Why am I in pain?
If an injury doesn’t receive adequate blood flow, it can’t heal. Blood has crucial healing components, including vitamins, minerals, and oxygen, with oxygen being the most vital of these. The lack of oxygen triggers a buildup of lactic acid, and that's what causes pain. Fortunately, Prolozone can help.
Prolozone® Pain Therapy
Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain, including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain-free.
What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually leads to complete healing, and a permanent end to pain.
How Does Prolozone Work?
The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen.
Prolozone works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing.
Finally, the area is infiltrated with activated oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. As they heal, circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.
Is Prolozone the Same as Prolotherapy?
No. Prolozone uses oxygen to create a healing. Prolotherapy uses inflammation to create the healing. Dr. Shallenberger used to use prolotherapy. Although he found that it was often effective, it had the following limitations: Prolotherapy is extremely painful. Pain usually persists for days to weeks after a treatment. Patients receiving Prolozone feel immediate improvement, with little to no pain during treatment. Prolotherapy also requires many injections, whereas Prolozone only requires a few. This means that Prolozone is faster and much less expensive. Prolozone therapy is especially effective in regenerating the cartilage in damaged knees and shoulders. Prolotherapy is usually not able to do this.
