HOW DOES The Philipose Restorative Prolozone System WORK?
The Philipose Restorative Prolozone System (PRPS), is a safe, non-surgical treatment for chronic pain using injections to stimulate healing. It uses various treatments such as prolotherapy, prolozone, ozone, neural therapy, acupuncture, sarapin, chiropractic, spinal decompression, cupping, LaserNeedle Acupuncture and various other natural and restorative treatments which have been used for decades on patients in pain from aging, overuse or injury. Pain from auto accidents, athletic injuries, and arthritic injuries often arise from injury to the soft tissues in the body. These soft tissues which include ligaments, muscles, cartilage, tendons and joint capsules are also called “connective tissues” because they connect to bones, thereby supporting the bony skeleton. The Philipose Restorative Prolozone System causes these connections to be repaired, rebuilt and strengthened. It is for this reason that The Philipose Restorative Prolozone System has also been called ligament reconstructive therapy or stimulated ligament repair.
As a result, the normal supportive function of the ligaments, which was present prior to injury, is lost. Therefore, joint stability is reduced. Small pain fibers in these damaged ligaments transmit pain impulses to the brain when stretched.
Through a subconscious reflex, the surrounding muscles go into a tight and painful spasm in an attempt to stabilize the joint. This causes the region to feel tight, stiff, achy, burning, tingling, numb, fatigued, and painful. The individual will often notice painful knots in the affected muscles. These muscles become tight and painful as they try to compensate for the weak and damaged underlying tissue structures. The muscle spasms reduce blood flow, causing even more pain. Not only are these symptoms local, but they are often referred (transmitted) through nerve pathways into the legs and feet, arms and hands, and head (headaches). In other words, pain felt in the head, arms, or legs may be due to instability in the neck or back.
For example, weakness or injury to the ligaments in the neck may interfere with the sympathetic (automatic) nervous system, causing a group of symptoms called Barre-Lieu Syndrome. This syndrome consists of one or more of the following: dizziness, visual blurring, loss of balance, ringing in the ears, runny nose, salivation, trouble swallowing, hoarse voice, nausea, vomiting, nervousness and headaches. These symptoms are caused by instability in the neck and can be eliminated by PRPS. Medications and other forms of passive treatment such as ultrasound, ice, heat, massage, acupuncture and manipulation may give minimal lasting benefits because the primary problem, the loose and injured ligaments, are not being addressed. Stretching and strengthening exercises usually can provide some relief from chronic pain, but this is often only temporary. When these exercises have failed to increase the support sufficiently to diminish pain and improve function, the chronic pain cycle ensues. The Philipose Restorative Prolozone System should be initiated as soon as possible, before the problem progresses and becomes widespread. The most basic Philipose Restorative Prolozone System solution contains a naturally occurring sugar (dextrose) derived from corn combined with an anesthetic (lidocaine). Other common, natural substances can also be used effectively such as amino acids, vitamins, and collagen. This solution does not contain cortisone, which is known to decrease inflammation, but will also slow or stop the healing process. Acute pain may be relieved with cortisone, but repeated use causes a weakening of the tissues and chronic pain develops.
