Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy) is a recognized Non-Surgical orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue. Prolotherapy has the ability to address the cause of the instability, repair the weakened sites and produce new collagen tissue, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint. Anti-inflammatory or other pain relievers only act temporarily & surgery is more risky and fails to stabilize the joint and relieve pain.
The original and most commonly used form of Prolotherapy consisting of Procaine and a Dextrose solution (D50W).
PROLOZONE THERAPY (Hi Octane Prolotherapy)
PROLOZONE therapy is a second generation Prolotherapy consisting of Procaine, Colloidal Silver, Methyl B12, and Homeopathic anti-inflammatory solution along with Ozone.
Like Prolotherapy, Prolozone Therapy is designed to cause moderately severe pain lasting typically 12 to 24 hours. You are to avoid Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications, like Ibuprofen. Dr. LaBeau prescribes pain medication like Vicodin, if desired, which does not interfere with the healing process.
Dr. LaBeau will typically initially recommend a trial of 4-6 injections done 2-4 weeks apart. Typically, multiple points, tailored to the individual, are injected in an area such as a joint or area of the back for optimal results. Up to 2 areas of the body can be done at a time, but a longer office visit is required when injecting to areas. To further facilitate healing Dr. LaBeau also recommends myo-fascial soft tissue therapy to be done throughout the treatment process.
In fact, with each injection the natural healing process continues for the next 6-8 weeks just like with an injury. With each injection there is a cumulative effect!
