Discomfort from sports injuries and other aches and pains can put a damper on your overall quality of life. You can take medication to ease your symptoms, but wouldn’t it be better if you could find a treatment that would actually improve the root cause of your suffering? Prolozone therapy might be able to help. What exactly is Prolozone, and what is it good for? This blog post explains.

An Introduction to Prolozone

The word “Prolozone” is a combination of two terms — proliferation and ozone. The treatment utilizes proliferation therapy, which means that it involves the use of a minor irritant that is injected at the site of damaged tissue. The irritant (usually dextrose) lets your body know that something is wrong so it can send healing factors to the site and get you on your way to feeling better.

The therapy also uses ozone, which further encourages healing by increasing oxygenation of the target tissues.

Additional components may play a role in Prolozone. For example, the injected solution may contain vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory medication.

Could Prolozone Help You?

Prolozone is a suitable treatment for a range of musculoskeletal conditions. Here are some examples of issues that it may be able to help with:

  • Chronic back pain
  • Degenerated spinal discs
  • Osteoarthritis of the hips and knees
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Shoulder and elbow pain
  • Sciatica
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sports injuries

Prolozone has also shown potential as a way to address heart disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and other conditions. However, its application in such areas is not yet backed up by extensive research.

To find out whether Prolozone might be a fit for your unique situation, book a consultation with a doctor who offers it. After they evaluate your condition and learn about your medical history, they will be able to make a well-informed treatment recommendation.

How Does Prolozone Therapy Work?

Prolozone therapy is a pretty straightforward process. Your medical team will prepare the solution and use ultrasound technology to inject it precisely where it needs to go. Some mild swelling and increased soreness are common after the injections; such symptoms may last for a couple of days. Thereafter, you may gradually begin to notice a reduction in pain and other benefits.

Many patients experience optimum results if they attend 3 – 5 Prolozone session over the course of several months.

Could Prolozone help you live a healthier life? If you have been struggling with persistent aches and pains, it is certainly worth looking into!
