Eliminating Chronic Knee Pain Safely - Prolozone

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 31, 2017 5:59:17 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim


How are you treating your joint pain?

Prolozone is an injectable combination of natural anti-inflammatories, tissue regeneration homeopathics, cellular nutrients, proliferants and ozone.  This combination repolarizes cellular membranes so injured cells can heal.  Inflammation and swelling disappear. Proliferants stimulate growth factor production and ozone stimulates healthy blood flow.

A recent study found that after 8 weeks of treatment, statistically significant differences favoring ozone were seen.  Findings included: significant reduction in pain, improvement in joint stiffness and engagement in physical activities.

"Lequesne Index measures also indicated a significant reduction in pain and improvement in function (P < .001), and QoL in relation to function, pain, and general physical and mental health was also statistically superior in the ozone group compared with the placebo group (P <.001). No significant differences were observed between groups in relation to the Timed Up and Go Test."

Symptomatic knee osteoarthritis affects more than 9.3 million US adults and is the leading cause of disability.

“In my opinion, ozone injections are more effective than the use of corticosteroids and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents [NSAIDs] for the treatment of knee OA,” said Dr Lopes de Jesus. He explained that ozone has a significantly broader mechanism of action than NSAIDs and corticosteroids, providing anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects and the ability to deter antalgic gait.2 “Ozone activates the cellular metabolism, reduces prostaglandin synthesis, makes the redox system function properly by reducing oxidative stress through induction of the synthesis of antioxidant enzymes, and ameliorates tissue oxygen supply through hemorheologic action, vasodilation, and angiogenic stimulation.“ Dr Lopes de Jesus added that ozone has been reported to have a restorative effect once it mobilizes bone marrow, mesenchymal, and endothelial stem cells, but no study had demonstrated this until now."

Instead of harmful steroid injections, try prolozone therapy for your chronic pain.

We offer prolozone therapy/ozone therapy injections in our NYS office for large joints. Prolozone injections reduce pain and inflammation and are steroid-free. The second injection is formulated to repair and rebuild damaged tissue. Patients experience great pain relief with I.V. ozone therapy.  We offer ozonated saline and MAH or major autohemotherapy for systemic pain due to cancer, Lyme, autoimmune conditions. All I.V. therapies are MD ordered in NYS.

If you have chronic pain, you need to include ozone therapy in your treatment protocol.
