Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique. The name prolozone® was coined by Dr. Frank Shallenberger the pioneer of this technique. The name comes from the Latin word “proli” which means regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. This technique works by bringing oxygen, vitamins and minerals to the damaged tissues, joints, ligaments and tendons for regeneration. This isn’t just a treatment for pain, results represent healing through correction of the pathology or reason the pain is present. There’s a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to become permanently pain free.
First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This helps increase circulation which is necessary for healing. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing. Finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone.
Treatment response varies from person to person, but most people only need 3-5 treatments.
Neck pain, whiplash, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, elbow pain such as tennis elbow, shoulder pain, rotator cuff injury, knee injuries, osteo arthritis of the hip or knee.
Prolozone® is not prolotherapy, which uses inflammation to stimulate healing and is a very painful process. Patients who receive Prolozone® often feel immediate improvement with very little to any pain during the treatments.
Prolozone® itself is not Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which is a technique that uses blood plasma with concentrated platelets taken and prepared with the patient’s own blood. PRP is often used with Prolozone®, however, at this time PRP is not available at Mountain View Functional Medicine.
