What is Prolozone therapy?

Prolozone® therapy is a treatment to help you manage pain. It combines anti-inflammatories, crucial vitamins and minerals, and ozone gas to improve the conditions for healing. 

Most importantly, Prolozone therapy increases the amount of oxygen in your blood. Generally, your entire body functions more efficiently when it has plenty of oxygen. Being properly oxygenated increases your body’s natural power to heal itself from various injuries and tissue damage. 

If you have musculoskeletal pain, you should consider Prolozone therapy as a non addictive, minimally invasive treatment alternative to more conventional treatments like pain medications and surgical repairs. 

Which conditions benefit from Prolozone therapy?

There are many injuries and chronic conditions that can improve with Prolozone therapy because of increased healing and oxygenation. Prolozone therapy tends to improve musculoskeletal and joint pain conditions such as:

  • Sciatica
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Chronic neck or back pain
  • Neuromas
  • Sports injuries (e.g., tennis elbow)
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease

If you have conditions like these that haven’t improved with more conventional treatments, ozone therapy may be the next step for you to try. During a consultation at Revitalife Medical Center, your provider fills you in on the details of the treatment and can make sure you’re a candidate to safely undergo Prolozone therapy. 

What should I expect when I visit for Prolozone therapy?

When you visit Revitalife Medical Center for Prolozone therapy, your provider begins the process by injecting you with a healing or anti-inflammatory agent. They place the injection directly into the area of damaged tissue. 

Next, your provider administers ozone gas. It consists of three oxygen atoms that can improve your immune system function. Ozone also increases the amount of oxygen in your blood, which can lead to an array of important benefits, such as increased tissue regeneration and growth factor stimulation. 

Throughout the procedure, you may sit, recline, or lie down comfortably. You can return to work right after the treatment is complete without any downtime.
