The Solution for Arthritis and Joint Pain


If you suffer from Arthritis or joint injuries there is a special therapy for you. This therapy can rebuild worn out cartilage, ligaments, and tendons, and get rid of inflammation and pain.

This unique therapy is called Prolozone. Prolozone is a combination of two therapies that speed up the healing power of your own body inside the joints. The two therapies are prolotherapy and ozone therapy.

When these two therapies are combined, the results are extremely effective for the patient.

Prolotherapy has been around for many years as a solution to heal injured joints and there are several studies to prove that it works. However prolotherapy has some drawbacks, including many repeat treatments, accompanied with a lot of pain and discomfort for the patient.

That’s when I did some research and found out about Ozone therapy. I began to use Prolozone in my practice eight years ago. With this treatment, patients require fewer injections and the joints recover much faster and the best part is very little pain!

How it works:

The connective tissue inside of a joint has a poor blood supply that allows healing to occur very slowly if at all.

First the joint is injected with a solution of procaine, Vitamin B12 and folic acid, and then with the syringe still in place, medical ozone is injected into the joint.

Ozone is made up of 3 oxygen atoms (O3); Oxygen travels in pairs (O2). When an extra oxygen molecule is added to O2 it becomes O3. When we introduce O3 into a joint it wants to become O2 again and so it gives away 1 oxygen molecule and the cells take it in. As a cell takes in more oxygen, it can produce more energy and become more efficient. This allows for the internal structures of the joint to repair more quickly then they ever could on their own.

Note from Dr. P

The results with this treatment have been amazing. Take Bob, an 84-year-old male who had terrible arthritis in both knees that flared up after a trip to Italy, walking on cobblestones. His MD told him he wasn’t a candidate for knee replacement because of his pre-existing heart condition, so he did some research and found out about Prolozone. He came hobbling into my office saying he would like to play golf and travel without pain. He also had pain going up stairs, during sleep, and with walking.  After 4 knee injections he was pain free and able to take that cruise that he wanted. There are countless stories like this about prolozone. So if you or someone you know is suffering with a joint injury, I highly recommend it.
