Prolozone is a form of non-surgical ligament reconstruction and a permanent treatment for chronic pain. It’s a therapy of collagen producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints. Ozone is a highly reactive molecule, when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities, which causes it to heal very quickly. When these substances are injected into the damaged connective tissue in and around a joint to rebuild the damaged areas, it repairs the connective tissue thereby permanently reversing chronic pain.
How Our Ligaments Are Affected
Ligaments are the structural “rubber bands” that hold bones to bones in joints – acting like the body’s shock absorbers. Ligaments can become weak or injured and may not heal back to their original strength or endurance. Once injured, ligaments will also not tighten on their own to their original length. This is largely because the blood supply to ligaments is limited, and therefore healing is slow and not always complete. To further complicate things, ligaments also have many nerve endings, and results in the person feeling pain at the areas where the ligaments are damaged or loose.
We can think of our joints as the hinge on a door. Until the hinge is fixed the door just isn’t going to open or close right and it’s the same exact story with our joints. If we are athletic or if we are just getting older there is some gradual and natural degeneration of the moving parts of the body due to ongoing recurrent mechanical stress, and failure of tissues to repair. These conditions can come from lack of nutrients, lack of circulation, aging and/or inflammation. So ligaments, tendons, and cartilage become dehydrated and weaker;which in turn it results in laxity and more abnormal mechanical stress and shearing forces on the joint. All of this can lead to a progressive separation of the ligaments from the superficial covering on the bone called the periosteum.
Prolozone repairs and tightens the lax structures
Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle which allows for better circulation, thereby increases blood flow carrying nutrition and hydration tp the damaged tissues. As a result, this allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.
