What Is Prolozone Therapy?
So, what exactly is Prolozone? In simple terms, Prolozone is an injection of ozone gas combined with other natural medicines. When ozone is injected into the body, it increases the blood supply to that specific area. In doing so, it also promotes an increased flow of healthy nutrients, enhancing the natural healing cycle of your body.
The circulation of the vital elements which exist in the bloodstream is important to the natural regeneration and healing process of the body. By increasing the blood supply to an injured area, essential vitamins and minerals are also supplied by the body which help in the healing process.
There are three primary components of Prolozone Therapy. Each component of Prolozone is important in the regeneration process. The first element of Prolozone is natural anti-inflammatory medications. These are used to reduce the swelling in the injured area, thus promoting improved circulation. The second main component of Prolozone is the injection of certain vitamins and minerals that are crucial to the body's natural healing process.
Lastly, the third element of Prolozone Therapy, oxygen gas in the form of ozone. The combination of these three elements promotes proper circulation and regeneration of the damaged tissues, tendons, or muscles. The majority of individuals experience immediate relief upon receiving their first injection of Prolozone. However, Prolozone Therapy is generally most effective after 3-5 sessions. Dr. Brandon Washatka will work with you to determine a Prolozone Therapy therapy plan that best meets your individual needs.
