Why Is Ozone Used?
Ozone is a naturally-occurring, highly reactive molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen. Because ozone is so reactive, it is able to stimulate fibroblastic and chondroblastic activity to an almost unbelievable extent. This high level of reactivity, combined with the innate safety of oxygen, makes ozone the ideal therapeutic molecule.
What Conditions Are Treated?
Osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, and spine, shoulder pain from rotator cuff injuries or trigger points, and neck pain are the most common ailments treated with Prolozone Therapy™. It is also excellent for many other types of musculoskeletal pain, including virtually any sports injuries, fibromyalgia, plantar fasciitis, and tennis elbow. It can be especially effective in treating areas that have previously been operated on because of the significant scarring and injury that occurs to ligaments during surgery.
What Can I Expect?
At your initial visit, you will undergo a brief physical exam and answer questions regarding what is causing you pain. You will then have the area(s) cleansed thoroughly before having the Prolozone Therapy™ injection(s). Please wear loose, and comfortable clothing that provides easy access to the areas needing treatment. All Prolozone Therapy appointments are with Joanna Hutchins, PA-C, MPAS. The response to treatment varies from patient to patient, and depends on one’s healing ability and level of injury. Some people may only need one or two treatments, while others may need as many as six or seven. The injection process is repeated every 2 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone Therapy™ typically results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years. And, the most amazing thing about it is that the results usually represent a permanent fix.
