Ozone Therapy uses medical grade ozone (a highly reactive form of pure oxygen) to create a healing response in the body. As ozone has anti-inflammatory properties, its benefits include: activating and strengthening the immune system, stimulating white blood cells, preventing infections and immunodeficiencies by destroying fungi, bacteria, and viruses.
Prolotherapy is a technique of introducing a dextrose and sometimes vitamin-based solution into areas of #degeneration or injury. It serves to act as an irritant, which in turn provides fresh blood supply and stimulates the body’s healing response in damaged tissues. This is especially advantageous in damaged connective tissues, such as ligaments and tendons, which lack a rich blood supply.
When the two are combined, prolo-ozone therapy can be excellent for a variety of musculoskeletal pain and injuries including neck pain, cervical instability, herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, TMJ disorder, sciatica, heel spurs, elbow overuse, rotator cuff tears, and knee injury/arthritis.
Furthermore, ozone has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce bacterial burden and inflammation in the treated area. This is particularly beneficial in cases of chronic injuries or local infections that may hinder the body’s natural healing process.
Prolotherapy, on the other hand, aids tissue regeneration by creating a controlled local inflammatory response. By injecting an irritating solution into the damaged tissues, the release of inflammatory mediators is stimulated, triggering the migration of regenerative cells to the treated area. These cells help repair damaged tissues and strengthen weakened structures such as ligaments and tendons.
Choose excellence in care with physiologicNYC!
Prolozone therapy offers several benefits for patients who choose it as a treatment option. Some of these benefits include:
Tissue Regeneration: The combination of ozone and prolotherapy stimulates the production of growth factors and promotes the repair of damaged tissues. This can be particularly helpful in cases of chronic or degenerative injuries.
Chronic Pain Relief: Prolozone therapy provides pain relief by reducing inflammation in the treated area and promoting tissue healing. This can be beneficial for patients suffering from chronic pain in joints, ligaments, or tendons.
Non-Invasive Treatment: Unlike more invasive treatment options such as surgery, prolozone therapy is a non-surgical procedure. Injections are administered in the medical office and do not require hospitalization or prolonged recovery time.
Low Incidence of Side Effects: Overall, prolozone therapy is safe and has a low incidence of side effects. Some patients may experience temporary discomfort at the injection site, but these symptoms are usually mild and quickly disappear.
Complementary to Other Treatments: Prolozone therapy can be used as a standalone therapy or in combination with other regenerative treatments, such as physical therapy or rehabilitation. This allows for a comprehensive approach to address the underlying injury or condition.
In conclusion Prolozone therapy is an innovative regenerative therapy that combines ozone therapy with prolotherapy to promote tissue regeneration and alleviate chronic pain. This technique has shown great effectiveness in repairing ligaments, tendons, and other damaged tissues. Additionally, prolozone therapy is a non-invasive treatment with a low incidence of side effects, making it an attractive option for patients seeking pain relief and improvements in their quality of life.
If you are considering prolozone therapy as a treatment option, it is important to consult with a specialist in regenerative therapies. The healthcare professional can assess your case individually and determine if prolozone therapy is suitable for you. Remember that each patient is unique, and results may vary, so receiving a personalized diagnosis and treatment plan is essential.
