Prolozone Therapy and Pain Relief

Prolozone – an innovative treatment for your pain

The reason that some injuries completely heal on their own and others don’t has to do with circulation. Certain injuries can heal incorrectly, or not fully heal at all, due to where the injury is located. Without proper healing, these areas will become inflamed, causing hotspots for chronic pain.

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.

A few different therapies can aid oxygen flow and the healing process. Ozone therapy makes use of super-charged oxygen molecules that are injected into the body. When these oxygen molecules come in contact with your blood cells, your body can create more proteins and red blood cells. This results in healing. If done correctly, this oxygen can reach the areas of your body that haven’t healed properly. This therapy has incredible healing potential, but Prolozone improves on what is already an incredibly effective therapy.

Prolozone is a simple injection technique that can be done in the office of a specially trained medical professional. It works in a few ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling, which leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals critical for healing, namely those needed in the creation of collagen. Lastly, the area is infiltrated with the same super-charged oxygen molecules used in ozone therapy.

Once exposed to the ozone, your body has everything necessary to heal itself naturally. As circulation to the area is re-established, your cells utilize the vitamins and minerals as collagen and use them where you need them. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need 2-5 treatments to completely recover.

Prolozone works on a wide variety of pain problems and sports injuries. You’d have a harder time finding an injury or pain that this therapy wouldn’t help heal. Because treatments can also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is remarkably effective, even for severe knee osteoarthritis cases. Some of the many pain disorders that this therapy can directly help mend include the following:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Torn tendons
  • Heel spurs
  • Neuromas
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Knee injuries

Prolozone is not just a pain treatment, as the results can represent a permanent fix for chronic pain and other injuries. It is a safe alternative to the invasive and extensive therapies that can sometimes be required to recover from injury or pain.

A big issue with Prolozone and Ozone therapies is that they aren’t as well-known or widespread in traditional medical communities, so it can be difficult to find a place that offers them. Luckily, you’re in the right place. Whether you need Prolozone therapy, Ozone therapy, or any number of our incredible services, An Optimal You’s experts can help get you started.
