Tennis Elbow & Prolozone Therapy

Elbow Pain or Tennis Elbow? Try Prolozone!

Are you suffering from tennis elbow pain? You’re not alone. The usual course of treatment for tennis elbow is rest, anti-inflammatories, ice, exercises, elbow straps and even cortisone shots. While some of these solutions may offer temporary relief, they do not treat the underlying cause of the issue. And many of these treatments when used frequently, have negative side-effects. When these treatments stop working or don’t work, the next step is often surgery.

The pain in tennis elbow occurs primarily where the tendons of your forearm muscles attach to the bony bump on the outside of your elbow. It is the result of inflammation of the tendons that join the muscles of the forearm to the outside of the elbow. This inflammation is often caused by small tears in the tendons.

This kind of pain and inflammation can be treated effectively with Prolozone.

Tennis Elbow / Elbow Pain Symptoms

  • recurring pain on the outside of the upper forearm, just below the bend of the elbow.
  • pain can also be further down the arm, towards the wrist.
  • elbow is swollen or inflamed
  • difficulty bending the arm or lifting objects with the arm
  • difficulty gripping objects or bearing weight on your arm or elbow
  • problems doing normal things like writing, handling small objects, etc.
  • pain when twisting the forearm (turning door knob, etc.)
  • pain extending the forearm fully
  • injured elbow feels weak compared to other elbow

How Does Prolozone Help Tennis Elbow?

Prolozone is derived from the word ozone and the Latin word “proli” which means to regenerate or re-build. It literally means re-building tissues with ozone. And the word Prolozone is comprised of the word “Prolo” which is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament tissue in areas where it has become weak.

Prolozone Therapy is an injection technique similar to Prolotherapy that uses ozone. The use of ozone causes the joint to heal much more quickly than in traditional Prolotherapy. This is because ozone is a highly reactive molecule and when injected into a joint capsule it is able to stimulate the fibroblastic joint repairing abilities.

Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This creates a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain. Because Prolozone has the ability in many cases to actually corrects the pathology of the disorder, there is a 75% chance for the chronic pain sufferer to becoming permanently pain free. By repairing the connective tissue this is all that is needed to permanently reverse chronic pain.

Prolozone therapy offers a non-surgical, ligament reconstruction option and is a permanent treatment for chronic pain.

Back Pain Healed

I have suffered from acute back pain on and off for 25 years and recently it really flared up to the point where I could not walk without a cane. Bending and moving were excruciatingly painful. Since I have a very physical job as a construction contractor, it also prevented me from working. Previously, when my back has been bad I have visited chiropractors but since I’m now a patient of LifeWorks, I called Tamora to ask her advice. She said I should see Dr. Minkoff and have some prolozone therapy. It was a new one on me but I have great faith in LifeWorks, so I thought I would give it a try. When I entered Dr. Minkoff’s room I could barely walk or stand straight. When I left 20 minutes later, I was standing upright and the pain was significantly less. Almost immediately I was able to do some light work, and now after only three sessions I am back at work as normal. I am really impressed by this therapy and would recommend it to anyone in pain. Evidentially, it doesn’t just help back issues – one of the LifeWorks’ staff told me she was having it for wrist pain. What I would say about this therapy is that while other treatments help to ‘manage’ the pain, prolozonetherapy seems to ‘heal’ the source of the pain. Great job, Dr. Minkoff and LifeWorks!  – Greg.

I Can Finally Sleep Pain Free

Dear Dr. Minkoff, I just want to thank you for helping me get some relief. I feel like a different woman today! I don’t hurt at all & I actually got a good night’s sleep last night without any pain or pain medicine! That’s the first time in quite a while that I can say that. So, I just wanted to let you know how much better I feel & how thankful for your help & treatment. You’re an angel!  Thank you. – D.M.

These Ozone Treatments are Miraculous!

Dr Minkoff, I have had much success with your Prolozone treatments, they are miraculous. I had tried cortisone shots and many other treatments but nothing worked as well as prolozone. The pain was much reduced and more successful than anything I have tried. I am thankful to you and your clinic for this wonderful success.  – PLD

A Huge Difference After Only One Treatment

Prolozone is the BEST thing ever! Wow! What a huge difference it made after only one treatment, I had an immediate result. My right shoulder was scheduled for surgery and I didn’t like that. So I tried an alternative method first. I’m so glad I did because surgery “good bye!” NOT necessary at all. I have no pain and already a huge increase in range of motion. I need less sleep and still feel completely energized. I had a feeling that this O3 – Ozone should help me and fought hard to be able to get this treatment and now it totally paid off!!! IT REALLY, REALLY WORKS! Fantastic, miraculous results.   Antje. V

About Dr. Minkoff

In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established LifeWorks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
