Prolozone is a technique which combines the principles of neural therapy, prolotherapy and ozone therapy, developed by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. Neural therapy strictly relieves pain by injecting an anesthetic. Prolotherapy is a inflammation-inducing injection intended to strengthen ligaments or tendons, and medical grade ozone therapy is used to increase the amount of oxygen in your blood cells to fight infections and increase energy levels. The combination of these three treatment modalities has provided exceptional results for patients suffering from chronic pain, degenerative disease and compromised immune systems.
How Does It Work?
Prolozone consists of combinations of procaine, anti-inflammatory medications, homeopathics, vitamins, minerals, proliferates and ozone/oxygen gas.
Each one has a specific biological purpose. Procaine is used to re-establish the potential of cellular membrane function decreasing pain, the anti-inflammatory agent decreases swelling and edema, while the vitamins and minerals help facilitate oxygen utilization of the blood cells, stimulated by medical grade ozone.
Damaged joints and tissues become non-functional when there is a reduction in oxygenated blood flow. Function is returned when Prolozone is injected directly into the damaged joint or soft tissue and the blood cells become re-oxygenated by the ozone, stimulating growth factors needed in the regeneration and repair of tissue.
What Can I Expect?
The average treatment for Prolozone takes approximately 30-45 minutes. The injection is given with a small diameter needle and there is very little discomfort during the treatment. You may feel tender at the site of the injection for a few days afterward.
Sometimes a single injection is enough to eliminate the pain, however, further injections may be necessary to promote greater joint rejuvenation. Improvement in flexibility, better mobility, joint pain and arthritis is expected. Prolozone injections can be a permanent cure for pain. Your treatment team can help you decide on how many injections you may need specific to your individual treatment plan.
