What is Prolozone therapy?
So, what exactly is Prolozone? In simple terms, Prolozone is an injection of ozone gas combined with other natural medicines. When ozone is injected into the body, it increases the blood supply to that specific area. In doing so, it also promotes an increased flow of healthy nutrients, enhancing the natural healing cycle of your body.
The circulation of the critical elements which exist in the bloodstream is essential to the natural regeneration and healing process of the body. By increasing the blood supply to an injured area, crucial vitamins and minerals are also provided by the body which aid in the healing process.
There are three primary components of Prolozone Therapy. Each element of Prolozone is essential in the regeneration process.
The first component of Prolozone is natural anti-inflammatory medications. These are used to reduce the swelling in the injured area, thus promoting increased circulation.
The second key component of Prolozone is the injection of specific vitamins and minerals that are crucial to the body’s natural healing process.
Finally, the third component of Prolozone Therapy, is oxygen gas, in the form of ozone. The combination of these three components promotes proper circulation and regeneration of the damaged tissues, tendons, or muscles.
Most patients experience instantaneous relief upon receiving their first injection of Prolozone. However, Prolozone Therapy is typically most effective after 3-5 sessions. IHS of TampaBay will work with you to determine a Therapy treatment plan that best meets your individual needs.

How does Prolozone Therapy treat chronic pain?
The common cause of chronic pains of all types is a buildup of lactic acid. Lactic acid begins to accumulate when a specific area of the body has a low supply of oxygen. Oftentimes, the cause of this low level of oxygen is the intense inflammation that surrounds the area, cutting it off from these crucial elements.
Prolozone Treatment effectively treats chronic pain by reducing the inflammation surrounding the area. Ozone is then injected which encourages blood flow and increased oxygen levels, allowing the lactic acid to disperse once again.
