Prolozone is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or rebuild, and the word ozone. Ozone is the most highly active form of oxygen in the universe. Prolozone uses the power of oxygen to cause damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons to regenerate. This usually causes a completehealing, and a permanent end to pain.
How Does Prolozone Work?
The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t has to do with circulation. In order for a damaged area of the body to regenerate and heal, it must have the critical elements that only the blood can provide: vitamins, minerals, and oxygen. Of these, by far the most important is oxygen. Low levels of oxygen cause an accumulation of lactic acid, which is what causes pain. Prolozone works in three ways. First, homeopathic anti-inflammatory medications are injected into the injured area to reduce inflammation and swelling. This leads to increased circulation. Next, the area is treated with vitamins and minerals that are critical for healing. And finally, the area is infiltrated with oxygen in the form of ozone. The result is that the tissues get what they need to heal. And as they heal, the circulation to the area is re-established, and the treatment is complete. The response to treatment varies from person to person, but most people only need from 3-5 treatments.
Is Prolozone the Same as Prolotherapy?
No. Prolozone uses oxygen to create a healing. Prolotherapy uses inflammation to create the healing. Dr. Shallenberger used to use prolotherapy. Although he found that it was often effective, it had the following limitations. Prolotherapy is extremely painful. Pain usually persists for days to weeks after a treatment. Patients receiving Prolozone feel immediate improvement, with very little to any pain at all during the treatments. Next, prolotherapy requires many injections, whereas Prolozone only requires a few. This means that Prolozone is faster and much less expensive. Prolozone therapy is especially effective in regenerating the cartilage in damaged knees and hips. Prolotherapy is usually not able to do this.
Conditions That Can Be Treated With Prolozone
Prolozone works on just about any pain problem you might have, including: neck pain, whiplash, degenerated or herniated discs, low back pain, plantar fascitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, torn tendons, TMJ syndrome, sciatica, heel spurs, neuromas, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, knee injuries, and virtually any other sports injury. Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe cases of osteo arthritis of the hip or knee. The good thing about Prolozone is that it is not just a treatment for pain. The results actually represent a permanent fix.
“I retired from LAPD after 25 years, Viet Nam ’68-’69, and have worked in Afghanistan and Iraq. I had 3 medical problems that I saw doctors about: Emphysema, Arthritis and scar tissue from a torn ligament in my knee. For the first two problems doctors recommended I take some sort of drug and for the third the the doctor recommended I have arthroscopic surgery to fix the scar tissue build up(even thought I would have to go back later to remove the scar tissue from the new surgery).
I researched the web and luckily I found Dr Katie Carter and Prolozone Therapy. After treatments for Emphysema and torn ligaments I have been able to hike without shortness of breath or knee pain. I also am able to do woodworking without any pain in my thumbs. Dr Carter has used her knowledge to help heal the problems I was having. I would recommend Dr Carter and Prolozone therapy to anyone that wants to feel better without the use of drugs or surgery.”

“I was dealing with pain, it was like an iron cage, there was no escaping it. I had back pain for 20 some years and tried everything. I found Dr. Carter and after one treatment I was pain free. Prolozone has also helped my headaches and knees. I am so excited I just want to share this with people, feel free to call me if you have questions. 406-873-2001. “

“I haven’t felt this good since I was 17 years old. I had an accident, a horse fell on me and I have had back pain every since. Prolozone has given me amazing results. My life is so much better since I met you Katie Carter. “

“Thank you for becoming my #1 Doctor !!!!!! After finding out that the only solution to my back pain, after having an L5/S1 fusion was steroid injections, I called and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Katie Carter. Thank you Brandi, for being knowledgeable and your patience while answering our questions!! I wanted to heal not ‘duct tape’ the problem. So far I have had 3 injections and my pain has gone from chronic and intense to barely even feeling the pain and the scar where I still have ‘hardware’. It has changed my life. Also, I had stepped on a nail and it was so painful that I was limping, changing my gait and causing a recurrence of the back pain. Dr. Carter injected around the puncture wound on my foot her ‘healing concoction’ and after she and Andrea made me a walking pad, I felt no more pain when standing or walking. That night I danced to Dark Horse….. The injections are healing my back, not masking the symptoms. Each time I received an injection, Dr. Katie actually cared about my health and how I was doing. I’ve been to Doctors who’ve just seemed to listen only to prescribe prescription drugs for the problem. Thank you for caring Dr. Katie and Brandi, and for encouraging me in learning more and becoming certified in body work, the field I enjoy.”

“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Dr. Katie Carter. She provides excellent health care for me and my many acquaintances. Dr. Carter’s ever expanding knowledge and determination to provide the best care known to date in her field has resulted in numerous successes in enhancing the health and well-being of her patients.
While employed as a Montana Worker’s Compensation Adjuster I was constantly in search of such practitioners who offered the best and most efficacious care possible for our injured workers. Her treatments would have been approved for reimbursement without hesitation due to her stellar results.
Any organization committed to providing excellent evidence based medicine needs to ensure the Dr. Carter is an integral component of that practice. Thank you. “
