Injection Therapies are an acupuncture system that incorporates neuroscience and European medical science into its clinical applications for pain management, orthopedic conditions, and internal medicine.

Prolozone is a homeopathic/oxygen-ozone injection technique developed by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It combines the natural principles of Biopuncture, which is the injection therapy use of liquid homeopathic medicines, with the Dextrose and Procaine used in Prolotherapy and NeuroPuncture therapy and adding medical grade Ozone used in Ozone Therapy.

Each component of Prolozone therapy has a specific biological purpose. Procaine acts to re-establish cellular membrane potentials. Anti-inflammatory agents decrease edema and swelling. The inclusion of vitamins and minerals provides necessary substrates of oxygen utilization that in damaged tissues are often deficient. And finally, oxygen utilization is directly stimulated by ozone.

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. Because in many cases Prolozone actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.

One last note about the effect of injecting a gas: Unlike injecting a liquid, which will just pool in the area of injection, gases expand when injected, and dissect along areas of inflammation delivering oxygen, anti-inflammatory agents and homeopathic medicines to very large areas are treated with only one injection. This decreases the number of injections needed to treat a given area.
