Prolozone® is a homeopathic, oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal, joint pain including:
- chronic lower back pain
- neck pain
- rotator cuff injuries
- degenerative and arthritic hips and knees
- degenerated discs
- shoulder and elbow pain
How Does it Work?
Prolozone therapy involves the injection of ozone in and around ligaments where they attach to the bone. The injected ozone increases the blood supply and flow of healing nutrients to these areas. More importantly, it stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells synthesize 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.
What Can I Expect?
This 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. The process is repeated every 1-2 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone therapy can often result in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.
