What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain. This includes chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs and shoulder and elbow pain. Prolozone actually corrects the pathology of the disorder and there is then a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to become permanently pain free.
Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or rebuild and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a complete healing and a permanent end to pain.
How does Prolozone work?
The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals and oxygen. Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen can cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which causes pain.
Prolozone works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected in to the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to the increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical to healing. And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. As they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need 3-5 treatments.
What conditions can be treated with Prolozone?
Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have. These include: neck pain, whiplash, degenerated or herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, sciatica, TMJ, torn tendons, heal spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries and virtually any other sports injury. Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteoarthritis of the hip or knee.
