What Is Prolozone Therapy?
Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain. Prolozone is a connective tissue injection therapy of collagen-producing substances and ozone gas, which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints.
These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas. By repairing the connective tissue this is all that’s needed to permanently resolve chronic pain.
How Does It Work?
Ozone is a highly reactive molecule, and when injected into a joint capsule it has the ability to stimulate the fibroblastic (or regenerative) joint repairing abilities. This occurs when ozone is metabolized into different peroxides, which stimulates and enhances the growth factors in the surrounding areas for tissue regeneration and stabilization.
It’s important to understand what the word Prolozone means. Prolozone is derived from the “ozone” and the Latin word “proli“, which means to regenerate or rebuild. It literally means rebuilding tissues with ozone. “Prolo” is short for proliferation because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak.
To sum up, Prolozone is a nonsurgical, injection-based treatment, which in many cases permanently resolves chronic pain patterns and can regenerate damaged tissues.
Medical Uses For This Type Of Therapy
In 1929, the directors of the most important hospitals in the U.S.A. published the book Ozone and ItsTherapeutic Action, which lists 114 diseases and their treatment through the application of ozone.
Herniated disc therapy has a 60-80% success rate using just ozone/O2 injections. This series of injections has equal or better efficacy when compared to back surgeries. They also have the added benefit of no recuperation time and a small amount of cost. Disc Herniation isn’t the only application. Ozone is also extremely effective in treating spinal stenosis, neuropathic pain, and general chronic pain patterns.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
You will notice an increase in function with increased strength and stability. Expect a decrease in pain and stiffness and an increase in mobility. Physical examinations by your practitioner will confirm your progress as well as imaging studies (if necessary) to visualize the regeneration of tissues.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
Similar to Neural Therapy and standard Prolotherapy, we clinically see the best results with three visits of ozone therapy one to two weeks apart. Ozone therapy is virtually painless and often can give you immediate relief from your back pain with no recovery time.
