Prolozone, Prolo and PRP
Pain can take many forms of all shapes and sizes and can hold you back from living your life the way you want to. Maybe you have joint or back pain from a recent injury, or your hips might not move the way they used to–or maybe you’ve been suffering from chronic pain, like arthritis. If any of these sound familiar, it is worth consulting with our providers about our injection therapies like Prolozone, PRP, and Prolotherapy.
Prolozone™ Therapy is a technique that combines the principles of neural therapy, Prolotherapy, and ozone therapy. It involves injecting a combination of procaine, anti-inflammatory medications, homeopathics, vitamins, minerals, proliferative, and ozone/oxygen gas into degenerated or injured joints, and into areas of pain. The result of this is simple and simply amazing. The damaged tissues can be regenerated, and otherwise, untreatable pain can be cured.
Prolotherapy (or just “Prolo”) is a simple, non-surgical procedure that involves injecting a dextrose solution into the soft tissue around an injured joint, tendon, or ligament in order to intentionally stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and facilitate a faster, smoother recovery as well as to ease the pain. PRP, which stands for Platelet-rich plasma therapy consists of the same mechanism as prolotherapy, however, it uses your own body’s platelets to accelerate the healing process.
While primarily used for treating back pain, prolotherapy and PRP are excellent for treating any joint, tendon, or ligament pain–especially the knee, hip, and shoulder pain–and is also frequently used to ease pain from chronic conditions like arthritis and degenerative disc disease–all done with a quick and simple injection! These benefits are enhanced when combined with Prolozone therapy!
