Prolozone (TM) therapy involves the injection of a mixture of ozone, procaine, vitamin B12 and other homeopathic preparations into soft tissues, ligaments, and tendons. This causes a localized inflammation in these weak areas, which then increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients. These effects stimulate the tissue to repair itself, strengthening and tightening and thereby stabilizing the area.
What are Ligaments?
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Ligaments also will not tighten on their own to their original length once injured. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate this, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and therefore the person will feel pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose. (Read more on Joint Pain)
Conditions that can be treated with Prolozone (TM) therapy.
Chronic pain resulting from injuries to ligaments and tendons of the appendicular skeleton has long been well recognized. However, because they cannot be visualized on x-rays, injuries to ligaments, tendons, and soft tissues of the body have been largely ignored as a potential source of chronic pain.
Prolozone (TM) therapy treatment is equally excellent for many different types of musculo-skeletal pain, including:
- neck pain,
- unresolved whiplash,
- degenerated or herniated discs,
- carpal tunnel syndrome,
- torn tendons,
- TMJ syndrome,
- heel spurs,
- tennis elbow,
- rotator cuff tears,
- knee injuries,
- and virtually any other sports injury.
