Prolozone Therapy Pain Relief in Atlanta, GA

Living with chronic pain can destroy your quality of life and leave you searching for answers. Many people avoid conventional methods for treating pain, like surgical procedures or pain medications, because these treatments frequently come with complications and side effects. 

Conventional pain treatments typically provide short-term relief; these treatments mask symptoms instead of treating their underlying cause. This short-sighted approach can lead to a lifelong struggle with pain and decreased range of motion. 

At Atlanta Innovative Medicine (AIM), we offer Prolozone therapy, to help patients with joint and ligament injuries as well as chronic pain.

What Is Prolozone Therapy?

Prolozone therapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses localized injections of ozone to reconstruct deteriorated or damaged connective tissues in the body.

The procedure works by stimulating the body’s natural healing process, regrowing connective tissues at the injection site. 

Prolotherapy and Prolozone are not the same, although they have many similarities. Both are regenerative medicine techniques that take advantage of the body’s natural healing processes to relieve pain and treat injuries.

However, prolotherapy and Prolozone injections contain different substances. There are three main components to Prolozone, which can help tighten partly torn connective tissues or lax ligaments by halting the inflammation process.

The first component is a dextrose solution which creates a local inflammatory response that helps to strengthen (proliferate) lax ligaments to help strengthen joints.

Second, the injection contains vitamins and minerals that work to boost your body’s natural healing process. 

The third component is a combination of oxygen and ozone. These substances can return the right level of circulation to the injury location.

Prolozone therapy can help reduce inflammation at the site of the wound, allowing nutrients to reach the injury and triggering the production of collagen, a protein that supports connective tissue and ligaments. 

As shared earlier, inflammation leads to reduced blood flow, and this can lead to serious pain. The wound does not get the nutrients it needs, leading to more damage and inflammation. This vicious cycle can seem impossible to break, but Prolozone therapy provides the blood flow needed to reduce inflammation.

Reasons Why Joints and Ligaments Deteriorate

Ligaments, which attach bones to other bones in your joints, can weaken or suffer damage from the natural aging process as well as from overuse or improper use.

They also have so many nerve endings that the pain from an injury to ligament tissue can be intense. Most of the time, injured ligaments cannot regain elasticity through the natural healing process because they do not have access to a large supply of blood. 

When there is more inflammation in the area, ligaments receive even less blood. This process leads the ligaments, cartilage, and tendons to become weaker and dehydrated, resulting in even more laxity. 

The entire joint can malfunction, causing progressive separation of the ligaments from the periosteum (a membrane covering the bones). This gap can lead to a reduced range of motion, severe pain, osteoarthritis, and inflammation.

Benefits of Prolozone Therapy for Pain

Prolozone therapy can offer numerous advantages, including providing results with fewer treatment sessions than other treatment options.

Although most people can benefit from three to five treatment sessions, some start feeling relief from their pain after just one. Because Prolozone is a gas, it can cover a much larger treatment area than a liquid injection.

With a liquid, the injection location has to be very precise, many times requiring ultrasound guidance. In contrast, gasses expand when injected, covering the entire area. This expansion makes Prolozone more effective for large areas as well as hard-to-reach injuries. It can also save time and call for fewer injections per session. 

Another benefit of turning to Prolozone therapy for pain is that it is a more affordable option than many conventional treatments. You don’t have to worry about a hospital stay as you would after a surgical procedure. Instead, you can return to your life right after your session. 

Prolozone is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require a long recovery time, and most patients do not feel much discomfort. On the contrary, many people feel better soon after the injections.  

This therapy allows us to treat the underlying cause of pain. By increasing blood circulation and bringing oxygen and nutrients to the injured area, these injections can interrupt the cycle of inflammation. Joints and ligaments that receive more blood supply can start to heal. Instead of just dealing with pain in the short term by using painkillers, you can stop it at the source. 

Prolozone therapy can also help increase your range of motion at the site of the injury. It can even help reduce the symptoms of arthritis.If you choose this option, you can still use anti-inflammatory medications. It also works very well within the joint itself, making it ideal for stimulating cartilage growth in the knees, hips, shoulders, and ankles.

What to Expect from Prolozone Therapy

Patients who choose our Prolozone therapy clinic benefit from our extensive training and experience.

Treatments take place at our clinic and do not require anesthesia, so you can drive yourself home after your session.

Our Prolozone specialists will perform a physical assessment to determine whether you can benefit from this therapeutic option. This assessment will also allow us to personalize a treatment plan and more accurately project how many treatment sessions you may need. You can expect to receive between one and ten sessions, depending on the level of deterioration, the kind of injury you have, and your overall health.  

We will prepare the mixture for the injection and then administer it to the treatment area.  After the injections, you can go home. The entire procedure can take less than an hour, and you have no recovery time to worry about.

We recommend a booster injection once or twice a year after your initial treatment to maintain results for most patients.

Through May 31, 2024 only, take $50 OFF Prolozone (series of 5, per area). Valid this month only; call 770.416.9995 or contact us here for more details or to schedule.
