It is important that a patient does not use anti-inflammatory medications 24 hours before and 48 hours after a prolozone™ injection. Also, areas that have been treated with steroid or cortisone injections cannot be treated with Prolozone™ Therapy until those injections have worn off.
The response to a Prolozone™ Therapy treatment varies from patient to patient based upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. Some patients may only need 3-5 treatments, while others may need as many as 6-7 treatments. Once the treatment program has begun, the doctor will analyze how you are responding and adjust the program accordingly. The injection process is repeated every 1-2 weeks until maximum improvement is noted. Prolozone™ Therapy usually results in a complete absence of symptoms, even in severe pain conditions that have been present for years. Amazingly, Prolozone™ Therapy usually results in a permanent fix.
