PROLOZONE INJECTION THERAPY
“Ozone or Medical Ozone”
What is ozone Therapy?
Prolozone also known as Ozone or Medical Ozone Therapy is a form of non-surgical ligament and joint reconstruction pioneered by Frank Shallenberger, MD. It is permanent treatment for many kinds of chronic pain.
Prolozone Therapy is derived from the Latin word “prolix” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. Prolozone Therapy is so named because the treatment uses ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration, and rebuild of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak.
Injured Ligaments Cause Pain
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold the bones, joints and intervertebral discs together. Ligaments can become weak or injured from injury excessive use, or surgery, and often do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. When this happens, this puts a severe strain on the areas that the ligaments are supposed to be holding together, resulting in pain and arthritis in the bones, discs, and joints which are affected. Also, ligaments themselves have many nerve endings which can provide additional source of pain.
