What Is Prolozone?
Prolozone is oxygen-ozone injection technique that is effective for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerative discs and shoulder and elbow pain.
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 the joints. These substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas.
The Benefits Of Prolozone Therapy
Prolozone therapy is an injection technique similar to prolotherapy that uses ozone. The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional prolotherapy. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities.
Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.
