Prolotherapy is a nonsurgical treatment which stimulates healing. Short for "proliferation therapy," Prolotherapy is also known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction, or regenerative injection therapy. Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body's own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissue. The treatment originated in the 1930's when Dr. Earl Gedney, an osteopathic surgeon successfully treated his own severe hand injury. Prolotherapy works by getting the body to use its own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured and painful joint areas.
Types of Prolotherapy include
Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy (Referred to as "PRP")
The Power of Ozone
Oxygen therapies can have a beneficial healing effect on the body.
Ozone Therapy is a powerful treatment & healing protocol that anyone suffering with a chronic or acute health condition should strongly consider.
Ozone treatment can quickly improve the function of the immune system and help detoxify the body.
Ozone / Ultra violet blood irradiation can saturate the blood stream with oxygen which can kill bacteria, fungi, and viral infections.
Also in cases of cardiovascular disease, the blood flow seems to improve and so many patients report relief from their symptoms.
These therapies are very safe and we deliver them to patients each year at our clinic.
Here are some of the therapies:
IV ozone (major autohemotherapy)
Ozone joint insufflation
Intravenous Infusion of Biologics
Intravenous infusion therapy is the administration of drugs directly into the vein in fluid form, slowly over time. Intravenous route is chosen when the drug cannot be given by other routes or when it needs to reach the target site quickly as in the case of an emergency. Through intravenous route the drug can reach all parts of the body. Intravenous drug infusion is given in a number of disease conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, osteoporosis, psoriatic arthritis, cancer, Lupus, Osteoporosis and others.
For treatment of arthritis, two types of drugs are given– one to reduce the pain and inflammation and the second to prevent further damage to the joints. Most of the second type are immunosuppressive drugs that act by suppressing the immune system thereby reducing damage to joints which is primarily due to an improper overactive immune response. The second type of drug needs to be given for several weeks, months or years to be effective.
For treatment of arthritis, we can infuse medications to acutely reduce the pain and inflammation (such as a steroid) and to reduce disease activity to prevent further damage to the joints or other organ systems. Most of the second type are immunosuppressive drugs that act by suppressing the immune system thereby reducing damage to joints which is primarily due to an improper overactive immune response. The second type of drug needs to be given for several weeks, months or years to be effective.
Autoimmune Disease Treatments
Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system of the body which normally protects us from disease and infection, literally attacks its own cells leading to dysfunction of those tissues. This may be restricted to an individual organ or may involve a particular tissue in different places like nerves, muscles, an endocrine gland or a digestive organ. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune disease and it is one of the most frequent reasons that people visit us at our clinic. Among the most common autoimmune diseases are Hashimotos thyroiditis, systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, fibromyalgia, lyme disease, multiple sclerosis etc
At our Clinic, part of the treatment of autoimmune disease may include treatments to re-programme the patient’s immune system and in many cases, this will begin the process of improving their symptoms toward recovery.
Prolozone simply put is prolotherapy using Ozone. It is a non-surgical treatment of ligament/soft tissue dysfunction and chronic pain with reconstruction of the connective tissue as a result since it addresses the root cause of the problem in most cases. By thus repairing the connective tissue this may be all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.
