Vital Facts about Prolozone Therapy
Prolozone comes from the Latin word “prolix”, meaning to proliferate, rebuild and regenerate. It also utilizes ozone to cause the regeneration, rebuilding and proliferation of new cartilage tissue and ligament in weak or affected areas.
Ligaments are essential structural bands holding the joints, intervertebral discs and bones together. They can be injured or become weak from surgery, excessive use or injury, and they often don’t heal back to their original tightness and strength. When it occurs, it places a strain on the area where the ligaments are intended to be holding together. This often results in arthritis and pain in the joints, discs and bones.
This therapy causes tightening and repair of the lax structures, ligaments and connective tissues that are partially torn. It halts the inflammation cycle or pain which enables better circulation, hydration of damaged tissues and increases the flow of blood to carry nutrition in the body. This excellent therapy promotes a great healing environment in the joint, which results in decreased pain and an increase range of motion.
