When patients hear there are permanent solutions for their chronic joint pain, they expect to find the same old choices like prescription painkillers or surgical joint replacement. For almost everyone, these options do not provide long-lasting relief. Long-term use of prescription drugs are extremely hazardous to the body and only mask the pain; as the pain worsens and the body gets accustomed to the dose, and the strength needs to be increased. People who depend on pills to mask joint pain live around taking them. This is an unacceptable way to live. Joint replacement surgery is rarely the answer as the risks involved outweigh the benefits. Mandatory recalls on joint replacements are all over the news. However, there is a simple, natural treatment that is highly effective and produces permanent results.
Most patients are surprised to learn that an alternative treatment called Prolozone has the potential to fully and permanently eliminate chronic joint pain by treating the source. Prolozone is not a new treatment, and has been proven in many cases to completely eliminate joint pain by healing any damage. As word of mouth is spreading the news about Prolozone, a common set of questions are often posed about this treatment:
What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is an injection into an affected joint. The blood supply to some joints is very limited, thus impeding the healing process when an injury occurs. Without an adequate blood supply, the body is unable to deliver oxygen and essential nutrients to facilitate proper healing. This is why some joint injuries cannot repair completely. Prolozone therapies initiate a healing process that forces the body to increase blood flow which allows the injury to heal. This stops the pain and increases mobility.
What does the injection contain?
The injections consist of homeopathic medicines, ozone, vitamin b12, and anesthetic medications like lidocaine. Each patient’s treatment is tailored according to his or her specific needs.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments varies from patient to patient. There are many factors that can contribute to one person healing faster than another. The severity and the age of the injury will affect the number of treatments. Prolozone is customizable, and treatments usually continue until the patient’s goals are reached. Most patients experience a reduction of pain and an increase in mobility after the first treatment and continued improvement after every treatment.
Is there any pain-related down time? Do the injections hurt?
It depends. The answers fluctuate with each and every patient. The injection site may be sore after the treatment. Any sensations related to the treatment will quickly subside. Untreated chronic joint pain can become harder to control, allowing the pain to increase over time. Most patients tolerate the treatments very well and report little pain. The injection contains a mild anesthetic that provides temporary pain relief, and some patients experience zero to little pain even after this wears off. Most patients actually report a decrease in joint pain after one treatment, and most agree that any pain experience is well worth the results.
Can Prolozone treat existing/severe injuries?
Yes, and a thorough evaluation by your physician would be required first. Prolozone can be used to treat a 20-year-old injury from high school or an injury that was just sustained. Any joint that has suffered an injury could benefit greatly from this treatment.
How can progress be tracked?
While progress can be tracked with MRIs and other images, the relief that patients experience is generally enough. Different degrees of relief and increased mobility are expected after treatments.
These questions and answers are not meant to replace an office visit, as one is necessary before any treatments are administered. The above answers may vary depending on the individual patient and the injury. Prolozone is a treatment used often with amazing results.
