Prolozone

For those suffering from chronic musculoskeletal or joint pain, Prolozone therapy can provide an opportunity to avoid surgery and ongoing discomfort. Much like Prolotherapy, Prolozone introduces natural substances into damaged and inflamed tissues to promote non-surgical reconstruction of tendons and ligaments. It works primarily through the stimulation of growth factors that fuel the healing process. The addition of highly reactive ozone, produced in-office by a medical ozone generator, can increase the rate of healing through further stimulation of fibroblasts within the joint.

Prolozone, as opposed to other injection techniques, is especially effective for reducing pain. In addition to stimulating tissue regeneration, which can tighten loosened connective tissue and speed up healing in torn ligaments and tendons, ozone helps to keep inflammation under control. Chronic inflammation disrupts blood flow and bars the body from healing–by reducing stagnant inflammation, Prolozone allows for improved circulation, better range of motion and lasting pain reduction.

We have great clinical success treating the following conditions with Prolozone:

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Joint Disease
  • Joint instability
  • Spinal pain
  • Frozen shoulder & rotator cuff injuries
  • Disc degeneration

Dr  Vosloo was personally trained and certified in ozone therapy by the  creator & pioneer of Prolozone, Dr. Frank Shallenberger. For more information on Prolozone and other ozone therapies, please visit the following sites:
