"SWEET RELIEF . . . Injecting tendons with a dextrose
(sugar) solution to trigger
an inflammatory reaction is
just one way in which
which practitioners are using prolotherapy to target
sprains and strainsprains and strains."

This combination of ozone gas & tissue building blocks are injected into joints & areas of reduced oxygen uptake to stimulate a healing response.

This is often utilized in more degenerative tissue injuries, osteo-arthritis and spinal disc problems.

More degenerated injuries are exacerbated by poor blood circulation. Poor blood circulation leads to decreased oxygen uptake in the injury which then leads to increased lactic acid production. Increased lactic acid in the injured tissue leads to pain!

When all of these factors are in place, the immune system cannot get to the injured area to do any regeneration or rebuilding.

This process can be reversed permanently through the use of prolozone injection therapy.

Prolozone treatments on the spine

Research shows that oxidants stimulate growth factors. Ozone is a combination of 3 oxygen molecules in a gaseous form. Because of its structure, ozone is an oxidant & immediately improves oxygen uptake in the damaged tissue along with stimulating growth factors for injury rehabilitation and regeneration.

It usually takes between 3-5 treatments to permanently correct the injury although pain relief is usually seen following the first treatment.

Both during and following prolozone treatment, it is recommended that patients undergo rehabilitative treatments through a qualified chiropractor or physiotherapist to correct weaknesses that have set up following the chronic injury.

Patients can expect anywhere from 3-5 treatments of prolozone within a six month period for complete pain relief.
