Ozone Joint Injection (Prolozone)

Joint pain could be more than just a nagging problem. It can severely limit your mobility and affect your daily life, especially if you are experiencing knee or shoulder pain.

That’s because your knees support most of your body’s weight, and they enable you to sit, stand, walk, run, lift, jump, and crouch with ease. The knee is the largest and one of the sturdiest joints in your body. Yet, because the knee is such a complex structure with its network of bones, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, it can easily develop arthritis-related injury or degeneration that causes chronic pain.

There are numerous ways to treat chronic knee or shoulder pain, but invasive surgery or medications aren’t your only answer. A safer yet effective treatment option is Ozone Joint Injection also known as Prolozone.

What is Ozone?

Ozone is a colorless gas made up of three atoms of oxygen (O3). We generate ozone by running an electrical current through medical grade oxygen.

What is Ozone Joint Injection (Prolozone)?

Ozone Joint Injection is a medical procedure that involves injecting ozone gas into a joint to help reduce pain and inflammation. It is a form of ozone therapy that is used to treat various joint conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other types of joint pain.

Who can benefit from Ozone Joint Injection?

In addition to relieving joint pain, promoting healing and recovery, and improving function and mobility, Ozone Joint Injection can safely and successfully treat a host of medical conditions including:

  • Kee pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Sports injuries
  • A sluggish immune system
  • Viruses and other germs in the body

What are the health benefits of Ozone Joint Therapy?

For many people, Ozone Joint Injection (Prolozone) is an ideal alternative to invasive surgery and a long recovery period. Instead, a customized series of prolozone injections can help your joint pain subside naturally, without surgery. Prolozone therapy also stabilizes the treated area by helping to strengthen damaged or injured tissue. It also:

  • Decreases inflammation
  • Kills pathogens (bacteria, viruses, mold, yeast)
  • Increases stem cells

How to prepare for your Ozone Joint Therapy?

It is best to have at least a small amount of inflammation present in the joint space. Avoid taking things like ibuprofen (Motrin), Naprosyn or Tylenol for about 1 week prior to the procedure.

What to expect during my Ozone Joint Therapy?

During the procedure, a small amount of a local anesthetic (procaine) is first injected into the joint space. Then ozone gas is injected directly into the same joint. The ozone gas can help stimulate the production of anti-inflammatory molecules, such as cytokines and prostaglandins, which can help reduce pain and swelling in the joint. It can also stimulate stem cells to migrate to the joint space. Ozone gas also has antimicrobial properties, which may help reduce the risk of infection in the joint.

How do you feel after Ozone Joint Therapy?

For many patients this procedure brings relief of pain within a few hours. The effects can last from days to months depending on the patient and depending on the degree of inflammation and pathology initially present.

Are there any risks or side effects to Ozone Joint Therapy?

While Ozone Joint injection is generally considered safe, there are some potential risks and side effects associated with the procedure. These can include infection, allergic reactions, and nerve damage.
