Prolozone is derived from the Latin word "proli" which means to regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a complete healing, and a permanent end to pain. Martha Bray, FNP-BC, APRN, trained with Dr. Frank Shallenburger in this highly effective treatment.

How Does PROLOZONE® Work?
The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don't has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide:
  • vitamins
  • minerals
  • and oxygen
Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Prolozone works in three ways.
  • First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation.
  • Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing.
  • And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. 
The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.

Is PROLOZONE® the Same as Prolotherapy?

No. Prolozone uses oxygen to create a healing. Prolotherapy uses inflammation to create the healing. Prolozone is not the same as prolotherapy. Although prolotherapy is often effective, it had the following limitations. Prolotherapy is extremely painful. Pain usually persists for days to weeks after a treatment. Patients receiving Prolozone feel immediate improvement, with very little to any pain at all during the treatments. Next, prolotherapy requires many injections, whereas Prolozone only requires a few. This means that Prolozone is faster and much less expensive. Prolozone therapy is especially effective in regenerating the cartilage in damaged knees and hips. Prolotherapy is usually not able to do this.

Conditions That Can Be Treated With PROLOZONE®

Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including:
  • neck pain
  • whiplash
  • degenerated or herniated discs
  • low back pain
  • plantar fascitis
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • torn tendons
  • TMJ syndrome
  • sciatica
  • heel spurs
  • neuromas
  • tennis elbow
  • rotator cuff tears
  • knee injuries
  • sports injuries
Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the hip or knee.

The PROLOZONE® injection consist of the following medications
  • Oxygen/ozone gas mixture.
  • The affected joint is anesthetized with procaine which is a local anesthetic.
  • B12 and folic acid is added to the procaine and this combination will stimulate the DNA of cells to jump into repair action faster and longer than other treatments.
Oxygen called ozone is the most critical nutrient for energy production and healing. It stimulates the cells to excrete waste material and promotes their ability to repair themselves and the tissues around them. This makes PROLOZONE® a miracle healer as ozone is a powerful stimulant of cellular growth factors such as Transforming Growth Factor Beta (TGF-B).

What Can I Expect?
The response to treatment varies from individual to individual, and depends upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. Some people may only need one to two treatments, while others may need as many as six or seven. Once you begin treatment, Martha can analyze how you are responding, and will then be able to give you an accurate estimate of what you can expect from further treatments. The inject process is repeated every 1-2 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone Therapy typically results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years.

The amazing thing about Prolozone is that it is not just a treatment for pain. The results usually represent a permanent fix.
