What is Prolozone Therapy?
Prolozone therapy is an injection that consists of a local anesthetic and an ozone/oxygen mixture. Ozone is a gas composed of three oxygen atoms. The ozone/oxygen mixture provides the required oxygen needed for healing and regenerative of the tissue structures, tendons, muscle, etc. One of the main causes of chronic pain is poor circulation. As we get older our circulation decreases. When we have an injury there is swelling which reduces blood flow to the area.
When the injured connective tissue cannot receive the oxygen and nutrients that it needs this results in a chronic pain syndrome with no chance of healing. The prolozone injection provides the oxygen that is so vital to the healing and regeneration of the injured tissue (muscles, ligaments, tendons, etc). Prtolozone therapy is truly regenerative medicine at its best. Prolozone therapy is also anti-inflammatory and stimulates growth factors in the tissue surrounding a damaged joint. Like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections — another type of regenerative medicine — prolozone therapy stimulates new growth at a cellular level.
