Prolozone® Therapy Q&A

What is Prolozone therapy?

Prolozone therapy is a treatment that uses ozone to improve blood circulation, stimulate healing, and reduce pain. It’s an injection treatment that uses ozone, which is a supercharged type of oxygen with three atoms per molecule instead of two (which is what the oxygen you breathe has). 

Prolozone is similar to ozone therapy, which also administers ozone. However, ozone therapy involves an IV, while Prolozone therapy involves injections. The main objective of Prolozone therapy is to increase healing for injured ligaments, tendons, and joints, while ozone therapy treats chronic conditions like heart disease and autoimmune diseases. 

What should I expect during Prolozone therapy?

When you visit Mind & Soul Therapy & Acupuncture for Prolozone therapy, your specialist administers the treatment in three critical steps:

Anti-inflammatory injection

Your provider begins by injecting homeopathic anti-inflammatory medicine into the injured tissues. This reduces swelling by increasing circulation in the region. 

Vitamins and minerals

After the anti-inflammatory medicine, your provider treats the area with a blend of vitamins and minerals to nourish your tissues and promote revitalization. 

Ozone injections

The ozone injections themselves are the final step of Prolozone therapy. The ozone dilates blood vessels to invite more oxygenated blood into your tissues. Additionally, the ozone activates an enzyme to help cells receive more oxygen. 

Which conditions does Prolozone therapy treat?

Prolozone therapy is an excellent nonsurgical option for treating various musculoskeletal injuries, which can be slow to heal because of poor blood circulation. When tissues lack oxygen, lactic acid can build up in its place. This is what causes the lasting pain you feel from your injury. 

You might benefit from Prolozone therapy for healing:

  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Herniated discs
  • Plantar fasciitis 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Osteoarthritis

Prolozone therapy from a specialist can reduce pain and help the underlying injury complete the healing process. Your specialist might recommend other therapies alongside Prolozone to support healing, such as herbal medicine or acupuncture.
