Tulsa Prolozone

Prolozone Therapy

Prolozone is a homeopathic/oxygen injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Shallenberger, who Dr. Washatka trained under to learn this fantastic technique. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal 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.


What is Prolozone?


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 complete healing and a permanent end to pain.

Prolozone Therapy is commonly misunderstood. Most people wonder how Prolozone Therapy really works.

How Does Prolozone Therapy Work? | Dr. Washatka

The reason that some injuries completely heal and others don’t, has to do with circulation. For a damaged area 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 3–5 treatments.

Is Prolozone the same as Prolotherapy?

No, Prolozone uses oxygen to create healing. Prolotherapy uses inflammation to create healing. Prolotherapy is extremely painful, and pain usually persists for days to weeks after 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.

What conditions 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 fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Torn tendons
  • TMJ syndrome

  • Sciatica
  • Heel spurs
  • Neuromas
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Knee injuries
  • Virtually any other sports injury

Because Prolozone treatments also result in cartilage regeneration, the technique is also remarkably effective even for severe osteoarthritis of the hip or knee. The good thing about Prolozone is that it is not just a pain treatment. The results represent a permanent fix.
