Common Questions

Patients suffering from any kind of joint, tendon, or ligament pain areconsidered as candidates for ozone and prolozone therapy.

Prolozone is an all natural Regenerative Injection Therapy that takes advantage of the body’s ability to repair itself. This is great for chronic joint pain (knee, back, and shoulders).

Prolozone Therapy is derived from the Latin word “prolix” which means to proliferate, regenerate, and rebuild. Prolozone Therapy is so named because the treatment uses ozone to cause the proliferation, regeneration, and rebuilding of new ligament and cartilage tissue in areas where they have become weak and unstable.


Prolozone is a 2 step regenerative injection. 

Step 1: Procaine, Vitamin B12, 5% dextrose, Traumeel Anti-Inflammatory, NaCL 

Step 2: Ozone + Oxygen 


You should have a reduction in pain and usually need 4-8 treatments. More serious and long-standing conditions may require more treatments.

Prolozone Therapy involves the injection of ozone into damaged joints and tissue. The injected ozone increases the blood supply and flow of healing nutrients to the area. It also acts as a very strong anti-inflammatory. More importantly, it also stimulates the deposition and activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage that the body uses to repair damaged ligaments and joints. This increase in cellular repair activity strengthens and tightens the injured tissues, thereby stabilizing the area, and removing the cause of the pain. 

Insurance companies only like to cover treatments that don’t actually fix the problem, so Prolozone or any other regenerative injection procedure is not covered by any insurance. The good news is, that you are the one in charge of what procedures you get, not an insurance company.
