PROLOZONE® is derived from the word ozone and the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or re-build. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak.
Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. PROLOZONE® uses the power of oxygen to regenerate damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons, and alleviate pain. It improves microcirculation and stimulates the natural healing processes.
Ozone Therapy has a number of beneficial effects, ranging from the inhibition of inflammation, correction of ischemia and venous stasis to finally inducing a reflex therapy effect by stimulating anti-nociceptor analgesic mechanisms. It’s ability to reactivate the innate antioxidant system is the key to correcting the oxidative stress from inflammatory diseases and injuries.
Used intramuscularly, ozone stimulates an acute but tolerable oxidative stress giving a hormetic-type response to regenerating the area.
Dr. Landman was trained in PROLOZONE® Therapy by Dr. Frank Shallenberger, the creator of the PROLOZONE® method.
