Are you looking for alternative treatments to help you stay healthy? Perhaps you have been told you may need surgery, but you would prefer a nonsurgical solution?
If so, then you should consider regenerative medicine. Its purpose is to stimulate – and regenerate – the body’s own cells to heal damaged cells.
Let’s talk about two popular techniques of regenerative medicine, ozone and prolozone therapy, and where you can go in the Greater Minneapolis area to receive this revolutionary treatment.
What Is Ozone Therapy?
You’ve heard of ozone as it relates to the environment, but ozone is now being used as a treatment for disease and inflammation. Ozone is a gas that consists of three oxygen atoms in each molecule: O3.
For medical treatment, ozone is usually liquefied. Ozone therapy has a number of health benefits as well as helpful antimicrobial properties.
How Does Ozone Work in Treatment?
Researchers have found that ozone stimulates the immune system and can thus be utilized to treat a variety of diseases and injuries. Ozone can be injected directly into wounded tissues or given intravenously.
Ozone has the ability to inactivate a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast, and other protozoa. It can be used as part of a larger treatment plan for the following conditions:
- Joint injury
- Immune disorders
- Breathing disorders
- Pathogenic infections
How Is Prolozone Therapy Different?
Prolozone therapy combines ozone therapy and prolotherapy (proliferation therapy) into one singular powerful treatment. It’s made up of a mixture of liquid ozone and the following ingredients:
- Anti-inflammatory agents
These ingredients all work together to bypass the body’s inflammatory response, promote tissue regeneration, and activate the body’s natural healing mechanisms.
Who Can Benefit from Prolozone Therapy?
People who have the following conditions can benefit from prolozone therapy:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Torn rotator cuff in the shoulder
- Hip arthritis
- Knee arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Shoulder arthritis
- Elbow arthritis
- Degenerative discs in the spine
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Prolozone therapy is an excellent alternative to invasive surgery (and a lengthy recovery period) for many patients. Instead of surgery, a personalized regimen of prolozone injections can help your joint pain go away naturally. Prolozone therapy also helps to strengthen and heal damaged or wounded tissue.
