Pain persists as long as connective tissue in a joint remains damaged.
Prolozone injections stimulate tissue to repair itself, strengthening and tightening, and ultimately stabilizing the joint. Prolozone therapy involves the injections of ozone into soft tissues, ligaments, and tendons. This causes a localized inflammation in these weak areas, which then increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients, the stimulation of anabolic cells, fibroblasts, osteoblasts, and chondroblasts. These effects stimulate the tissue to repair itself, strengthening and tightening, and thereby stabilizing the area. Anyone dealing with Low Back Pain, Shoulder Pain, Rotator Cuff Tears, Knee Injuries, wanting to avoid knee and hip replacement is a candidate for prolozone therapy. 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 and can also assist those who wish to avoid a hip or knee replacement.
