Prolozone Therapy

What is Prolozone Therapy?

Prolozone is a special type of injection used to repair injured connective tissue and relieve pain in joints.

When Should I Consider Using Prolozone Therapy?

Prolozone can help promote healing of the following conditions:
  • Rotator Cuff injuries and other shoulder problems
  • Back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Residual pain and weakness from fractures and sprains
  • Sports injuries
  • Conditions which involve joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage and soft tissues
  • Sciatica
  • Hip and knee problems

How Does Prolozone Therapy Work?

The Prolozone specialist will evaluate your condition. An injection will be given into the area that needs healing. You may need only one injection or a series of injections given at defined intervals. Your health care provider will be able to give you more specific information based upon your health needs and your body's personal response to therapy.

The injections contain ozone, which is combined with substances that encourage the growth of collagen. Blood supply and nutrients are provided to the area of injection at an increased rate, prompting rapid tissue repair.

People with joint injuries and degenerative diseases, such as osteoarthritis, suffer greatly because of damage to bones and stiffening or injury to connective tissues.

Connective tissues include cartilage, ligaments and tendons. The connective tissues become inflamed and less flexible, creating pain and immobility. A vicious cycle ensues. More pain results in less flexibility. Inflammation grows, which can then increase pain even more.

The cycle continues in part because connective tissues heal slowly as they do not have a rich blood supply to provide nutrients needed for restoring the tissue to a healthy state. The ozone solution increases the blood supply so that tissues can heal better and faster.

Collagen is a natural shock absorber, which prevents friction within the joint. Prolozone helps collagen to be restored and health and functionality to return to the joint. Flexibility and range of motion increase. Tissues become stronger and the joint becomes more stable. Pain is decreased or eliminated entirely.

Some people have been able to avoid surgery due to the healing effects of Prolozone therapy.
