Prolozone Therapy™ is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone. Ozone is a naturally occurring chemical that consists of three oxygen atoms. Prolozone Therapy™ is so named because the treatment uses ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak or damaged. Prolozone Therapy™ is a technique that delivers oxygen exactly where it is needed in order promote healing and reduce pain.
Prolozone Therapy™ uses ozone in place of other proliferating agents. Three to five treatments are generally needed for pain management results, according to the Nevada Center of Alternative Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine. The Center reports that specific ailments Prolozone Therapy™ can treat include arthritis, carpal tunnel, degenerated disks, herniated disks, heel spurs, knee injury, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injury, sciatica, tennis elbow, TMJ and torn tendons.
Small amounts of ozone affect some bodily processes in a positive way increasing natural antioxidants in the body. Increasing these natural antioxidants is believed to improve some conditions. According to the Nevada Center of Alternative Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine, Prolozone Therapy™ reconstructs ligaments by introducing oxygen to injured areas in order to repair any damaged connective tissue. Low-oxygen levels may result in lactic acid collection that causes pain. Prolozone Therapy™ treats this pain in three ways; (1) introducing homeopathic anti-inflammatory medication to enhance circulation, (2) introducing vitamins and minerals for healing, and (3) delivering oxygen in the form of ozone into the problem area.
Equally important is that Prolozone Therapy™ stimulates the creation and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells help make more of the collagen and cartilage the body uses to repair damaged ligaments and joints. This increase in cellular repair activity strengthens and tightens the injured tissues, stabilizing the area and removing the cause of pain. Its use is excellent for all forms of muscle-skeletal and joint paint including chronic neck and back pain, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerative discs, shoulder and elbow pain. By repairing the connective tissue that may be all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.
Prolozone is an extremely safe therapy. The common effects are soreness that occurs 1-3 days after treatment. The response to treatment varies depending on one’s healing ability and level of injury. Once being treated, the doctor can analyze how you are responding and will be able to give you an accurate estimate of what you can expect from further treatments.
