Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone Therapy is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. It is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment for many kinds of acute and chronic pain musculoskeletal conditions. Prolozone Therapy™ is so named because the treatment uses ozone gas to cause the proliferation, regeneration, and rebuilding of new ligament, tendon and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weakened.

How Does Prolozone Therapy Work

Prolozone works by improving oxygen utilization in a localized area of damaged connective tissue, allowing it to heal, and to restore full function. It is the injection of healing nutrients and ozone in and around ligaments, tendons and cartilage where they attach to the bone. The injected ozone increases the blood supply and flow of healing nutrients and the tissues get what they need to heal. More importantly, it also stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts.

These cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage that the body needs to strengthen and tightens the injured tissues; thereby stabilizing the area, and removing the cause of the pain. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. By treating the cause of pain, prolozone eliminates the sensation of pain.

What Is Ozone

Ozone is a naturally-occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Because of its effectiveness and safety record, ozone has been used in medicine for over 100 years. Ozone is so reactive, it is able to stimulate fibroblastic and chondroblastic activity that is needed to rebuild ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.

When oxygen (02) molecules go into a ozone generator they are exposed to an electric spark that produces oxygen and a small amount of ozone gas (03), a relatively unstable molecule. This instability of the ozone molecule is what makes it so powerful, producing a high concentration of the more stable 02 molecule. This high level of reactivity, combined with the innate safety of oxygen, makes ozone the ideal therapeutic molecule to rebuild painful joints.

What To Expect From Prolozone Therapy

The regenerative healing injections are made in two phases. First a solution with procaine (an anesthetic, like when you go to the dentist) and vitamins critical for oxidation such as methlycobalamine (B12) and folic acid are injected in and around the painful area. Next, a precise amount of concentrated ozone gas is injected at the same area.

Due to the local anesthetic and oxidative effects of the ozone gas, many patients experience an immediate reduction in their pain, even though it has been present for many years. The response to treatment varies from individual to individual, and depends upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. On an average most people need 3-5 treatments; however, some people with more difficult conditions require more dependent upon their individual condition.

Summary On Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone Therapy is an extremely safe and effective treatment to not just ease pain, but to treat the cause of pain: decreased oxygen utilization. This technique can be used to treat pain of any kind.
Prolozone may be used independently or with other pain regeneration treatments such as prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to treat painful musculoskeletal conditions.
Prolozone Therapy should always be considered as a treatment to address the cause of pain rather than the dangerous treatments involving prescription medications, steroid injections and especially surgery.
