What’s the difference?

Prolozone® uses oxygen to create healing. Prolotherapy uses inflammation to create the healing. Although Prolotherapy is often effective, it has limitations. (1) Prolotherapy is extremely painful. Pain usually persists for days to weeks after a treatment. (2) Prolotherapy requires many injections and is not usually effective in regenerating cartilage.
Patients receiving Prolozone® feel (1) immediate improvement, with very little to any pain during or after treatments, and Prolozone® only requires a few injections. This means that Prolozone® (2) is faster and much less expensive than Prolotherapy. And Prolozone® therapy is especially effective in regenerating the cartilage in damaged knees and hips.
Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone® is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.
What is Prolozone®? Prolozone® is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone® uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a complete healing, and a permanent end to pain.
How Does Prolozone® Work? The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen.
Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Prolozone® works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing.
Finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.
Conditions that Can Be Treated with Prolozone:
Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including neck pain, whiplash, degenerated or herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, TMJ syndrome, sciatica, heel spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, and virtually any other sports injury.
Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the hip or knee. The good thing about Prolozone® is that it is not just a treatment for pain. The results actually represent a permanent fix.
PRP & Biological Allografts: In addition to Prolozone therapy, Revitalized Natural Health Center offers PRP Therapy, which utilizes your stem cells to repair and regenerate. BA uses infant stem cells which interact with your stem cells and “turns them on.” Each of the three therapies are used based on the severity of pain levels and regeneration desired. Schedule your initial appointment to see which treatment is right for you.
NOTE: All Regenerative Therapies at Revitalized Natural Health work best when inflammation and toxicity is at its lowest. RNH offers a full compliment of healing and regeneration nutritional and lifestyle education and support.
