Curing Pain with Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) & Prolozone


altProlotherapy, also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT), is an effective technique for treating many types of joint or musculoskeletal pain. Prolotherapy is a series of injections in and around the joint structure that stimulate the body’s own mechanism to grow and strengthen joint tissues.

The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. A substance is injected into the affected ligaments or tendons, which leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material that ligaments and tendons are made of. New collagen shrinks as it matures, thereby tightening the ligament that was injected and makes it up to 40% stronger than normal tissue! Prolotherapy can completely rehabilitate areas of pain and dysfunction and has an 80-85% success rate.

Even though the example bellow is of a knee joint, it can happen to every joint in you body:

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

New Treatment Provides Lasting Musculoskeletal Pain Relief

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary new treatment.

PRP is the plasma portion of blood containing concentrated platelet cells. Platelets are specialized types of blood cells that initiate tissue healing. When the concentrated platelet solution (PRP) is injected into an injured tissue, it stimulates the tissue healing process. Treatment with PRP can significantly reduce healing time and eliminate the need for medications or surgery, at a fraction of the cost.

Many professional athletes across all sports are using this type of treatment:

Tiger Woods
Rafael Nadal
Hines Ward
Troy Polamalu
Kobe Bryant
Derrick Rose
Alex Rodriguez
Cliff Lee
Donovan Bailey




Prolozone® is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculo-skeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic hips and knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. The good thing about Prolozone is that because it actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.
