Natural Arthritis Knee Pain Therapy


Testimonials


"I was headed for what two orthopedists and one neurologist said was certain surgery on my cervical spine when I discovered and started being treated by "Dr. Yoshi."  When I first went to see him in mid-January of this year, the nerves being affected in the cervical spine resulted in weakness and coordination loss in my right hand, so that I couldn't even engage in my favorite hobby of playing guitar.  I couldn't turn off my iPhone with my right forefinger, or shuffle a deck of cards.  Now I can do all of those things!  I recommend him most highly, although be aware that he's in demand and isn't always taking new patients."

– Jonathan B.


"I can't say enough good things about Dr. Rahm!  I have been seeing him for a few years now and recently began seeing him for some chronic hip pain.  I had surgery in my right hip for a labral tear and began having pain in the other hip.  Dr. Rahm recommended that we try "Prolozone" injections to try and help with the pain.  After surgery I was trying to rehab but my good hip was giving me so much trouble so we tried this and after 3 injections the pain was so much better.  It is not gone but it has improved so much that my rehab is going smoother and I'm getting around a lot better!"

– Christie M.

What is Prolozone?

Prolozone is an oxygen and ozone, vitamin, mineral and homeopathic medicine injection technique developed and pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. It is excellent for all forms of musculoskeletal and joint pain including chronic neck and back pain, rotator cuff injuries, degenerative and arthritic knees, degenerated discs, and shoulder and elbow pain. Prolozone seems to actually correct the pathology of the disorder, and according to Dr. Shallenberger there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free.


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 that appears to powerfully promote the repair and regeneration of damaged tissues, joints, ligaments, and tendons. This usually initiates healing and a permanent end to pain. Prolozone can provide a curative result assuming that any other contributing factors such as infection, misaligned gait, movement deficits, nutrient deficiencies, etc. are successfully managed.


Common Conditions that can be Treated with Prolozone:

  • Degenerative/arthritic knees – including severe osteoarthritis as it may result in cartilage regeneration
  • Degenerative/arthritic hips
  • Knee injuries
  • Chronic neck pain
  • Whiplash
  • Chronic back pain
  • Degenerated or herniated discs
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Torn tendons
  • TMJ
  • Sciatica
  • Heel spurs
  • Neuromas
  • Tennis elbow
  • Post surgery
  • Bone fractures
  • Virtually any sports injury

Are There Any Side Effects?

No. There have been no side effects reported from Prolozone therapy.


What Can I Expect?

The first thing that most patients notice after a Prolozone treatment is an almost immediate 50-80% decrease in pain. The response to treatment varies from individual to individual, and depends upon one’s healing ability and level of injury. Most people may only need one or two treatments, while others may need a series of six. The injection process includes a 15-20 minute appointment and is repeated once a week to once a month until maximum improvement is achieved and can be a true cure of most chronic injuries, degenerative processes and pain.
