Janet (name changed for privacy) is a 61 year old woman who has suffered from right shoulder pain off and on for several years. She had tried chiropractic care, massage, physical therapy, and acupuncture. She still suffered from pain on a regular basis.
In April of this year she got rearended in her car and this caused a flare up of her pain plus some new neck muscle pain. Janet came into my office 3 days after the accident had occurred. After a discussion on treatment options, she chose to have prolozone injections. The next day she sent me a message stating that “it was nothing short of a miracle”. She was pain free and was now able to function. She is not alone. She is among a large number of patients happy with the treatments.
Prolozone injections are a treatment option when treating pain. We are giving your cells what they need in order to heal–oxygen and nutrients. It can take one to five treatments to get the desired effect but some benefit is seen after just one treatment. Sometimes only one injection is needed but how many injections you require depends on your body.
Treatment is done in the office. There is some discomfort at the time of the injection but it goes away fairly quickly (within minutes). For those who suffer from pain it is the consensus that it is a small price to pay to reduce or eliminate your chronic pain.
Prolozone is effective for tendon inflammation, pain from tendon tears, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, muscle spasms, etc. Since steroids are not the focus of this treatment, it does not have the risks associated with steroid injections. If you have pain, prolozone injections offer you a more natural effective treatment option.
The reason that some injuries completely heal on their own and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen. Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain.
It is a simple injection technique that can be done in the office of a specially trained medical professional and works in a few ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing. And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal.
As tissues heal the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 2-5 treatments.
Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, heel spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, and virtually any other sports injury. Because treatments can also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably efectiv even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the knee.
Prolozone is not just a treatment for pain. The results actually can represent a permanent fix. It is a safe alternative to surgery and other pain therapies.
