What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is a technique that combines Prolotherapy and ozone therapy to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as knee osteoarthritis, spinal disc herniations, rotator cuff injuries, and other pain associated with the joints.
Ozone (O3) is a gas at room temperature and is made up of three oxygen molecules. The mechanism behind ozone includes stimulating circulation, improving oxygen utilization, stimulating beneficial cytokines, and directly killing microbes. Over time, ozone gas dissociates back into oxygen, which can act as a nutrient for joint tissue to regenerate.
Prolozone is a regenerative injection used to treat musculoskeletal issues. It acts by reducing pain, increasing mobility, and improving the health of connective tissue. The primary ingredient is ozone gas, which mediates cytokine signaling, promotes blood flow to the site of injury, and provides the vital nutrient oxygen for the tissues.
