We are proud to provide the patients of Longevity Effect with alternative and holistic solutions to both acute and chronic pain. In many cases, patients dealing with chronic pain are left with very few options for relief. The conventional solution to many types of musculoskeletal and joint pain is a long list of prescription medications. Some patients suffering from chronic joint pain may even require expensive and invasive reconstruction surgeries. Thankfully, there are other options available to you!
Prolozone Therapy is a form of non-surgical reconstruction of the connective tissues and joints throughout the body. Patients of Longevity Effect have found great relief and even full recovery after receiving Prolozone Therapy in our office. We are a firm believer in the positive role Prolozone Therapy plays in the recovery and reconstruction of damaged tendons, ligaments, joints, and muscles.
Unlike other solutions to chronic pain, Prolozone Therapy corrects the pathology of the problem, allowing the body to heal itself naturally. This wonderful alternative to pain medication and risky surgeries is incredibly safe, highly successful, and cost-effective. By combining the natural element of ozone with other medicines, Prolozone can easily provide relief after a single injection.
So, what exactly is Prolozone? In simple terms, Prolozone is an injection of ozone gas combined with other natural medicines. When ozone is injected into the body, it increases the blood supply to that specific area. In doing so, it also promotes an increased flow of healthy nutrients, enhancing the natural healing cycle of your body.
The circulation of the critical elements which exist in the bloodstream is essential to the natural regeneration and healing process of the body. By increasing the blood supply to an injured area, crucial vitamins and minerals are also provided by the body which aid in the healing process.
There are three primary components of Prolozone Therapy. Each element of Prolozone is essential in the regeneration process. The first component of Prolozone is natural anti-inflammatory medications. These are used to reduce the swelling in the injured area, thus promoting increased circulation. The second key component of Prolozone is the injection of specific vitamins and minerals that are crucial to the body’s natural healing process.
Finally, the third component of Prolozone Therapy, oxygen gas in the form of ozone. The combination of these three components promotes proper circulation and regeneration of the damaged tissues, tendons, or muscles. Most patients experience instantaneous relief upon receiving their first injection of Prolozone. However, Prolozone Therapy is typically most effective after 3-5 sessions. The Doctors will work with you to determine a Prolozone Therapy treatment plan that best meets your individual needs.
In some cases, patients are usually planning on having surgery for their pain when they turn to prolozone therapy as a last option. However, it doesn’t need to happen this way. Prozolone is an amazing preventative option that has produced incredible results without the patient having to go to surgery at all.
For patients who are treated for muscle or joint pain, some of the benefits have shown:
When a patient chooses prolozone therapy, they are in control of how often they receive the injections. This method triggers the body’s natural healing processes, are non-addictive, and are non-surgical.
If you are planning on surgery but haven’t tried prolozone therapy yet, you should seriously consider taking the next step towards this solution.
After getting a series of injections, patients can expect to see success against a wide variety of illnesses and symptoms. Some of the main conditions that prolozone therapy is used for are:
Prolozone therapy has been around for a long time, and it is considered to be a lot more safe than other pain relief methods that are utilized by traditional medicine. Because of this, it is extremely rare for a patient to experience any side effects.
When an appointment is made for a patient to receive treatment, they are given numbing medications. After that they will normally get around two to four injections in one area. The appointment only lasts for around 10 – 15 minutes, and it is normal for a follow up appointment to be set up for two weeks after your initial appointment depending on how well the first injections were received.
The needles that are used for this injection procedure are very small and don’t normally don’t cause any issues with patients. However, whenever there is a procedure, there are risks. There may be some light sensitivity or bruising around where the injection took place, but is able to be tended to quickly with no long term effects.
Surprisingly, this method of injection therapy has been around since the 1950s when it was used in Europe to relieve back and neck pain. It is just now starting to get more popular here in the United States as an alternative to surgery that is minimally invasive and more accessible.
Most of the healing occurs after 24-48 hours, and the patient will feel sore and a bit achy until then. The way the body heals really does depend on the patient and how well their body reacts to the treatment. If there is still pain, more injections may be needed.
Prolozone is a treatment that is non-surgical with results that can be permanent. Cortisone however is a solution that is temporary that only serves to mask any pain without actually fixing the underlying problem. Prolozone treatment will actually work to repair and heal the connective tissue around the area that has been injured for long term results.
Anyone experiencing either acute or chronic pain can benefit from receiving Prolozone Therapy. Some of the most commonly treated conditions include: joint pain, damaged tendons, degenerated discs, sports-related injuries of all kinds, knee and back pain, and neck pain due to whiplash. Prolozone Therapy offers relief and in many cases complete recovery from these and many other conditions.
Prolozone Therapy provides almost immediate relief to many patients receiving their first Prolozone injection. In addition to this, the injection is virtually pain-free and requires zero recovery time. These factors, along with the high success rate, make Prolozone the safest and most cost-effective alternative to risk joint replacement surgeries.
Prolozone Therapy is a very simple procedure that takes place right in the Longevity Effect office! A single Prolozone injection takes a matter of minutes and requires zero downtime. This allows you to get back to your normal daily routine pain-free! Most patients benefit from receiving between three to five Prolozone injections for each affected area. Dr. Brandon Washatka will work with you to determine how many sessions your injury requires.
Although the names and intended uses are similar, Prolozone and Prolotherapy are actually quite opposite from each other. Prolotherapy seeks to treat the injury by creating inflammation as a means of encouraging the healing process. Unfortunately, although Prolotherapy is effective, it is much more painful. It also takes much longer than Prolozone. On the other hand, Prolozone encourages healing by reducing inflammation. This creates a healing process that is quick and pain-free.
Osteoarthritis is a debilitating condition that can severely inhibit individuals from living a normal life. Luckily, Prolozone Therapy is highly effective in treating osteoarthritis! In fact, many patients have even experienced complete relief of severe osteoarthritis in the hips and knees because of Prolozone. This is because Prolozone Therapy encourages cartilage regeneration in targeted areas.
The common cause of chronic pains of all types is a buildup of lactic acid. Lactic acid begins to accumulate when a specific area of the body has a low supply of oxygen. Oftentimes, the cause of this low level of oxygen is the intense inflammation that surrounds the area, cutting it off from these crucial elements. Prolozone Treatment effectively treats chronic pain by reducing the inflammation surrounding the area. Ozone is then injected which encourages blood flow and increased oxygen levels, allowing the lactic acid to disperse once again.
If you suffer with any of these symptoms, Prolozone may be for you.
Neck and back pain, both chronic and acute, are successfully treated with Prolozone Therapy. In many instances, Prolozone can bring complete renewal to these areas, allowing you to once again live pain-free.
A wide variety of sports-related injuries are easily resolved using Prolozone Therapy. Get back to the activities you love quickly by encouraging your body’s natural healing process.
Prolozone Therapy is highly beneficial in providing relief from pain caused by osteoarthritis. Because Prolozone encourages the regeneration of cartilage, it can be a long-lasting solution to severe joint pain.
