Prolozone Therapy Q & A

What is prolozone therapy?

Prolozone therapy is a nonsurgical treatment for joint and ligament reconstruction. The procedure treats numerous types of pain by regenerating and rebuilding new cells within your body. It uses ozone to stimulate ligament and cartilage tissue growth naturally without surgery or downtime.

How does prolozone therapy work?

Prolozone therapy at Integrative Medica heals your body and offers pain relief using ozone injections. Dr. Schmutz injects ozone near ligaments or other injured areas to stimulate new collagen, cartilage, and other tissue regeneration.

What is prolozone therapy used for?

Dr. Schmutz might recommend prolozone therapy if you suffer from:

  • Joint inflammation
  • Chronic pain
  • Instability
  • Joint weakness
  • Nerve pain
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches 
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Injuries Sciatica


Prolozone therapy can effectively treat neuromas, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, and other sports-related injuries. Its effect on pain reduction without surgery is highly successful, and the treatment often eliminates the need to take potentially addictive pain medicine.

Is prolozone therapy right for me?

To find out if prolozone therapy is for you, Dr. Schmutz reviews your medical history. He asks about your symptoms, completes a comprehensive physical examination, and may order blood tests, X-rays, or other imaging procedures to diagnose the cause of your chronic pain.

What happens during prolozone therapy?

During prolozone therapy, you relax on a comfortable exam table. Dr. Schmutz can numb the treatment area to make your injections feel comfortable. He gently injects ozone into tissues at targeted areas of your body to stimulate natural healing. The procedure is fast and virtually painless.

What should I expect after the procedure?

After prolozone injections, you can resume normal activities right away, as there’s no downtime associated with the procedure. You may notice some redness or swelling at the site of each injection. Dr. Schmutz often recommends a series of prolozone treatments, or prolozone therapy combined with other holistic procedures, to offer you the best outcome.

Don’t take addictive pain medication or undergo invasive surgery to alleviate chronic pain when simple, holistic solutions are within reach at Integrative Medica. Book an appointment by phone or online to learn more about prolozone therapy.
