What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament, tendon, and joint reconstruction used to treat many types of chronic pain. The root of the word Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “prolix” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. The treatment is regenerative, and uses a combination of sugar solution and ozone injections to help rebuild ligament, tendon, and cartilage in areas where they have become weak.
Injured Ligaments Cause Pain
Ligaments hold bones, joints, and intervertebral disks together. Ligaments can become weak or injured from acute injury or excessive use. After surgery, ligaments often do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. When this happens, it puts strain on the areas that the ligaments are supposed to support, resulting in pain and arthritis in the bones, discs, and affected joints. Also, ligaments themselves have nerve endings which can signal pain when the ligament is damaged.
How Does it Work?
Our bodies often get locked in cycles of chronic inflammation following an injury. Prolozone helps break the cycle of chronic inflammation so the body knows to heal the affected area. The ozone specifically increases blood supply to the area and flow of healing nutrients. Prolozone also stimulates the deposition of collagen and cartilage by fibroblasts and chondroblasts. This new tissue rebuilds and tightens injured areas, thereby providing stability and reducing pain.
What Conditions are Treated?
The applications for Prolozone are very broad. It is used to treat arthritis in most joints of the body, such as shoulders, elbows, wrists/hands, back, hips, knees, and ankles/feet. In addition to treating the joints themselves, Prolozone can effectively stabilize ligaments and tendons around joints, so it is effective for back pain, fasciitis, and virtually any sports injury. It also effectively accelerates recovery after surgery.
What Can I Expect?
The response varies between individuals, and depends upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. The best results occur with a series of four injections, with four weeks to recover between each injection. Prolozone gets results even in chronic pain conditions that have been present for years, and many people will experience permanent resolution of their symptoms.
Prolozone is a safe, effective, and natural treatment for a variety of problems. We look forward to helping you get rid of your pain.
