How Does Prolozone Therapy Work?
Prolozone Therapy involves the injection of ozone in and around ligaments where they attach to the bone. The injected ozone increases blood supply and flow of healing nutrients. It also stimulates deposition and activity of cells called fibroblasts and chondroblasts. Ozone is a naturally-occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Because ozone is highly reactive, it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic and chondroblastic cellular activity, thus enhancing the repair cycle by increasing available oxygen and nutrients to the new forming tissue.

Results to Expect
The response to treatment varies from individual to individual and depends upon one’s healing ability and severity of injury. Some people need only one or two treatments, while others may need six or more. The injection process is repeated every 2-4 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. It may take more injections in those that have had severe pain for many years. Each situation requires its own protocol. Please discuss with your physician.
Prolozone Therapy is a safe, natural and often permanent treatment. All the research indicates there are no side effects when properly implemented.
