A form of regenerative medicine in which we use injections of ozone in gas form along with vitamins and minerals into the treatment area to stimulate the body’s tissues to heal themselves.
The root word “Prolo” of Prolozone comes from the Latin word “Prolix” which is broken down in the pre-fix “Pro” meaning forward or extend and the and the second par “liquēre” which means fluid. Combining the two – the concept is born to extend the life of tissue being fluid moving forward. Combining the root word Prolix with Ozone we get Prolozone – meaning this therapy using ozone technology allows us to help the tissue being treated to extend its life in a healthy and fluid fashion.
Effects of Prolozone Therapy
As ozone is introduced into the affected tissue, it immediately improves blood circulation. Because of this increase in blood flow, the tissue is flooded with a fresh flow of oxygen and nutrients as well as antioxidant action of the ozone.
Ozone will also attract recovery and scaffolding cells like fibroblasts and chondrocytes. This initiates a cascade of events that triggers tissue regeneration. To enhance this mechanism further, your provider will combine with vitamins and minerals. As your provider assesses your individual needs – they may combine or stack therapies to further speed recovery.
When the tissue is in acute inflammation your nerves are triggering pain to be part of the healing process. With the utilization of Prolozone – the ozone will act as a natural and safe pain relief mechanism. The ozone helps to calm and quiet those angry nerve endings. Therefore reducing the need for dangerous pain meds.
