What is the difference between Prolozone Therapy and standard Prolotherapy?

Prolozone Therapy uses a concentrated form of oxygen. Standard Prolotherapy use an irritant in the form of sugar (dextrose solution) to cause an inflammatory response. This inflammatory response helps to stimulate healing but has the following limitations: Standard dextrose prolotherapy can be extremely painful and sometimes requires gas and air during the procedure. The pain experienced during a Prolozone Therapy procedure is minimal.

It takes much longer to reach the repair phase with standard dextrose Prolotherapy, meaning that Prolozone Therapy achieves results in a faster time-frame.

Standard dextrose Prolotherapy requires many appointments, whereas Prolozone Therapy only requires a few, making it much less expensive for the patient.

Prolozone Therapy also has the ability to spread further around the treatment site, meaning it not only has a positive effect on the injury itself, but also the surrounding tissues and joints that may also have been under strain due to compensation.

Our patients have reported Prolozone Therapy has helped them to achieve results where standard dextrose Prolotherapy has either failed or only provided temporary relief.

PLEASE NOTE: We do also offer standard dextrose Prolotherapy for individuals who would prefer to have it for any reason.

Why Choose Us?

  • Extensive Experience – Our award-winning clinic has been performing Prolozone Therapy longer than any other clinic in the UK. Over 10,000 injections have been performed to date. We have had the privilege of treating many elite-level athletes, including both Olympic and Commonwealth medallists.
  • Increased Safety & Comfort – Our extensive experience has inspired the development of our unique, safer injection approach called the ProloSafe® Technique, which requires the use of smaller needles compared to what is normally used by other clinics.
  • Longer Lasting Results – If deemed appropriate, we prescribe tailored exercise programs alongside the treatment to help to strengthen and stabilise the muscles around the injection site.
  • Comprehensive Examination – We use precision biomechanical scanning technology to help accurately identify misalignments, imbalances, and areas of inflammation in the body that fail to show up on MRI and X-ray scans. Spending up to 90 minutes during each appointment with our patients gives us the time to carefully identify and treat these issues during the same appointment as the injections. This combined approach significantly enhances the results achieved from the injections and prevents an individual’s symptoms from returning.
  • Trusted Technology – Much of the treatment and examination technology we use at the clinic is used by elite professional sports teams, including Manchester United FC and the Team GB Olympic Team.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the success rate of prolotherapy and prolozone therapy?

Our clinical audits show that 95% of our patients experience results with our treatment.

Our success rate is higher than typically stated in studies, as we often combine the treatment with other advanced rehabilitation treatments within the same appointment as the injections to enhance the results.

For the 5% of patients who fail to experience results, we help point them in the direction of another practitioner or therapy that may be able to help.

How long does it take for the treatment to work?

The speed at which an individual starts to experience symptom relief depends on the type of condition or injury they have when they come in to see us.

Some patients experience relief after a few hours, some after a few days, and some not until a few weeks after their third appointment. 70% of our patients start to experience results after just one appointment.

What happens during a Prolotherapy consultation and examination?

Your practitioner will start by taking down a full medical case history. This will involve asking you detailed questions about your current symptoms and any previous conditions or incidents that may have had an influence.

Many individuals come to see us because they have failed to experience relief with other therapies. Sometimes, we find that the issue wasn’t necessarily with the other therapies themselves but with the practitioner performing that therapy, who may not have accurately assessed and examined the individual properly to start with and, therefore, not applied the therapy appropriately.

This is why we conduct a thorough examination using precision biomechanical technology to help identify issues and imbalances in the body that previous practitioners may not have identified. The information that our technology provides helps us to perform more targeted and effective treatment for our patients.

Is prolotherapy offered on the NHS?

Unfortunately, the treatment isn’t offered on the NHS at this point in time.

What is the recovery period after each injection?

Most patients can resume their daily activities straight away after the treatment. However, modifying any strenuous activity for a few days is advised.

Are there any side effects?

It is normal to experience pain and discomfort around the procedure site for a few days as part of the repair process, but it shouldn’t stop you from continuing your daily activities.

It is common to experience temporary bruising at the treatment site. For the first 6-12 hours after the procedure, an ice pack may help for no longer than 10 minutes at a time. Thereafter, only heat is advised.

Do I have to avoid doing anything after the treatment?

We advise you to avoid public hot tubs, swimming pools, and lakes for three days following each appointment to prevent the treatment site from being exposed to bacteria. You are allowed to shower or bathe during this time.

How safe is the treatment?

According to the International Scientific Committee of Ozone Therapy, Ozone does not cause side effects or allergic reactions and generally does not interact with other drugs.

When administered in tailored amounts by a qualified practitioner, the chances of experiencing adverse reactions are extremely small. For example, a German study on 384,775 patients evaluating the adverse side effects of over five million treatment appointments found that the rate of adverse side effects was only 0.0007 per application.

Will I get treatment on the first visit?

We always leave enough time during your first visit for treatment. If you are a complex case and multiple areas need treating, then please notify the receptionist upon booking, as you may require a double-slot appointment.

How long has the treatment been around?

The treatment has been used in Europe since the 1950s. It is most commonly used in Germany, where over 7,000 practitioners offer it to help provide chronic musculoskeletal symptom relief.

Does prolotherapy actually work?

Multiple peer-reviewed research studies have proven the effects of dextrose prolotherapy injections and prolozone therapy.

How long does prolotherapy last?

Most individuals experience permanent results, although some structures, such as cartilage, require annual single-appointment top-up treatments.

What can go wrong with prolotherapy?

As it is a non-medicinal substance, side effects are low. The most common are bruising and temporary discomfort around the treatment site.

What is the average cost of prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy injections cost as little as £245. The price will depend on how many areas you are having treatment.

Is prolotherapy a permanent fix?

This depends on your complaint, age, medical history and how well the body can heal and repair itself.

What not to do after prolotherapy?

Resting the area and avoiding swimming pools for at least 3 days after treatment is advised. This is general advice for any type of injection therapy.

Who is a good candidate for prolotherapy?

Published research indicates that it supports the recovery of and strengthens the following structures of the body: joints, cartilage, spinal discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, meniscus, labrum, and bursa. We treat all areas of the body, including the head, neck, jaw, back, shoulders, knees, hips, arms, legs, elbows, wrists, fingers, ankles, feet, toes, pelvis, sacroiliac joints, sacrum, and coccyx.

How painful is prolotherapy?

Depending on your pain threshold and complaint, dextrose Prolotherapy treatment can be very uncomfortable for some people as it involves the injection of an irritant solution. Prolozone Therapy, on the other hand, is much more tolerable.

Is prolotherapy a quackery?

No, an extensive number of comprehensive studies prove its effectiveness.   

Who is not a candidate for prolotherapy injections?

Individuals with acute medical conditions such as infectious diseases.
