About Prolotherapy Prolotherapy involves targeted injections of glucose. These natural solutions cause temporary inflammation, which stimulates your body to heal. Prolotherapy works in hard to heal areas where most other treatments can't do anything, such as your joints, ligaments, and cartilage, because unlike muscles, they don't have a blood supply to bring them oxygen.
Prolotherapy vs Prolozone® By modifying Prolotherapy, we can actually supercharge the treatment. It heals much faster, which means fewer injections and less pain. This modification is Prolozone®. It's an amazing treatment developed by my friend and colleague, Dr. Frank Shallenberger. He used Prolotherapy for years, but, like me, was frustrated with the pain and the large number of treatments needed to see complete healing.
So he decided to try using an oxygen/ozone gas mixture instead of the prolo solution. The treatment essentially directs oxidation, my favorite therapy, to the affected painful area. This induces your own body to actually heal the problem.
