What is Prolozone Therapy?
Prolozone Therapy is a form of non-surgical ligament and joint reconstruction pioneered by Frank Shallenberger, MD. It is a 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 rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak and unstable.
How does Prolozone work?
Prolozone therapy involves the injection of ozone in and around ligaments where they attach to the bone. The injected ozone increases the blood supply and flow of healing nutrients to the area. More importantly, it also stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. The cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage that the body uses to repair the damaged ligaments and joints.
