Prolozone therapy is a homeopathic treatment for chronic pain. This therapy consists of ozone-oxygen injections that treat joint and musculoskeletal pain, according to Dr. George Kramer.
Created by Dr. Frank Schallenberger, Prolozone therapy is an injection technique for homeopathic pain management. This therapy reconstructs the ligaments by introducing oxygen to injured areas to repair any damaged connective tissue, according to the Nevada Center of Alternative Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine. Low-oxygen levels result in lactic acid collection that causes pain, and Prolozone therapy heals this pain in three ways: introducing homeopathic anti-inflammatory medication to enhance circulation, introducing vitamins and minerals for healing, and inserting oxygen in the form of ozone into the problem area.
Relief is achieved immediately after a Prolozone therapy injection, but three to five treatments are generally needed for permanent pain management results, according to the Nevada Center of Alternative Medicine and Anti-Aging Medicine. The Center reports that specific ailments Prolozone therapy can treat include arthritis, carpal tunnel, degenerated disks, herniated disks, heel spurs, knee injury, neuromas, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injury, sciatica, tennis elbow, TMJ and torn tendons. Prolozone therapy has a 75 percent success rate for curing chronic pain by fixing the disorder's pathology, reports Dr. Kramer.
