How Does It Work?

Prolozone TherapyTM 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. More importantly, it also stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage that the body uses to repair damaged ligaments and joints. This increase in cellular repair activity strengthens and tightens the injured tissues; thereby stabilizing the area, and removing the cause of the pain.

What is Prolozone TherapyTM?

Prolozone TherapyTM is a form of non-surgical ligament and joint reconstruction pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger, and is a permanent treatment for many kinds of chronic pain. Prolozone TherapyTM is derived from the Latin word "proli" which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. Prolozone TherapyTM is so named because the treatment uses ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration, and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak.

Why Is Ozone Used?

Ozone is a naturally-occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Because ozone is so reactive, it is able to stimulate fibroblastic and chondroblastic activity to an almost unbelievable extent. This high level of reactivity, combined with the innate safety of oxygen, makes ozone the ideal therapeutic molecule.

What Conditions Are Treated?

Back and neck pain with or without degenerative disk disease, shoulder pain from rotator cuff injuries, and osteo-arthritis of the hips, knees and spine are the most common ailments treated with Prolozone TherapyTM. Prolozone TherapyTM is also excellent for many other types of musculo-skeletal pain, including fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ syndrome, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, neuromas, tennis elbow, and virtually any sports injuries. It can be especially effective in treating areas that have previously been operated on because of the significant injury that occurs to ligaments during surgery.

What Can I Expect?

The response to treatment varies from individual to individual, and depends upon one's healing ability and level of injury. Some people may only need one or two treatments, while others may need as many as six or seven. Once you begin treatment, the doctor can analyze how you are responding, and will then be able to give you an accurate estimate of what you can expect from further treatments. The injection process is repeated every 1-2 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone TherapyTM typically results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years. And, the most amazing thing about it is that the results usually represent a permanent fix.

Injured Ligaments Cause Pain

Ligaments are the structural "rubber bands" that hold the bones, joints, and intervertebral discs together. Ligaments can become weak or injured from injury, excessive use, or surgery, and often do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. When this happens, it puts a severe strain on the areas that the ligaments are supposed to be holding together, resulting in pain and arthritis in the bones, discs, and joints which are affected. Also, ligaments themselves have many nerve endings which can provide an additional source of pain.

Acupuncture: Acupuncture has a proven track record for effective and, sometimes, instance relief. Based in the idea of correcting imbalances or blockages in the flow of "energy", we can do this method while getting Prolozone for even better results. However, BOTH methods are stand-alone in their effectiveness. Homeopathic Injections: using different homeopathics designed specifically for an injured area, we inject, SAFE and NATURAL products just under the skin to moderate pain, limitations to movement, and, more importantly, effect repairs in the area. Our medicines are FDA-approved and completely natural. Again, this method can be used in combinations with acupuncture or Prolozone or is a stand-alone procedure for effective pain relief. Manipulation: preformed by a physician trained in manipulation techniques, the goal is to correct subluxations that might occur in the spine or joints. This method is especially effective when combined with massage: correct the bone, relax the muscle for lasting relief.
