Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament and joint reconstruction pioneered by Frank Shallenberger, MD as a permanent fix for many kinds of chronic pain. The word Prolozone is derived from “proli,” a Latin word that means to proliferate, regenerate and rebuild. And the process uses Ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration and rebulding of new ligament and cartilage tissues in areas where they have become weak.
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold the bones, joints and spinal discs together. Ligaments can become weak or injured from injury, excessive use or surgery and often do not heal back to their original strength and tightness. This results in pain and arthritis in the affected bones, discs and joints. Also, ligaments themselves have a poor blood supply, but many nerve endings which can be an additional source of pain.
Hips and knees are often replaced because they are "bone-on-bone." Prolozone can cause the body to rebuild the cartilage in these joints, which can delay or totally eliminate the need for replacement joint surgery.
The injected ozone increases the blood supply and flow of healing nutrients. More importantly, it also stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage to heal, repair and tighten the injured tissues. This stabilizes the area, removing the cause of the pain.
Almost any source of pain in your body. Some of the classic conditions are:
Back and neck pain with or without degenerative disc disease can be treated. Sciatic pain and the need for spinal surgery may be eliminated.
Shoulder pain from rotator cuff injuries, falls or other kinds of damage can be injected. Pain from unresolved whiplash injuries. TMJ syndrome, which is musculo-skeletal, along with other musculo-skeletal conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Any "bone-on-bone" condition in the body. Prolozone can cause the body to rebuild the cartilage in these joints, which can delay or totally eliminate the need for replacement joint surgery.
Trigger points can be injected and provide much needed relief for migraine headaches, chronic stress headaches, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and plantar fascitis. Any injury of any kind.
Prolozone can be especially effective in treating areas that have previously been operated on. Significant injury can be done to ligaments during the surgery and scars can cause extensive damage to the fascia.
Neuromas - benign tumors that can grow on nerves are very painful. They can respond positively to Prolozone.

The response to treatment varies from person to person, and depends on the ability to heal, level of injury and duration of the pain event. For example, a lifetime of migraine headaches will not be cured with one or two injections. Some may only need one or two injections. Others may need a series of six to ten, or perhaps more.
The injection process is repeated every one to two weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone injections typically result in a complete absence of symptoms, and for some, it will be a permanent fix.
Aftercare is pretty simple. After your injection(s), ice may be used on the joint for 15 minutes at least 2 to 3 times during the first 48 hours, depending on the tenderness. Pain can be easily handled with Tylenol or ibuprofen, if even needed.
Most people experience some level of stability with a 20 to 80% reduction in pain and with better range of motion. Over the week following the injection, some pain may come back but it should not come back to baseline.
The Prolozone injection(s) alone do not take much time. The preparation and equipment needed is significant. You are welcome to use your HSA or FSA accounts.
