Based on a recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), roughly 28 percent of adults in America struggle with chronic pain of some sort. To put that figure into perspective, almost 70 million individuals experience persistent, life-changing levels of pain on a regular basis that makes completing even the simplest of tasks difficult. If you are one of those individuals, you can rest easy knowing that invasive surgery and heavy doses of prescription drugs are not the only solutions available to you. Prolozone therapy is an innovative form of regenerative medicine that has helped individuals just like yourself manage and even overcome chronic pain issues.
Dr. Amaliya and Integrative Natural Medical Clinic (INMC) offer this service to Pasadena residents and we would love to help you discover a life of reduced pain with improved mobility.

Questions About Our Pasadena Prolozone Therapy Treatments
What Is Prolozone Therapy?
The term “prolozone” comes from the Latin word meaning “regenerate” or “rebuild.” Prolozone therapy is an advanced form of regenerative medicine that is a permanent treatment for many types of chronic pain. During the treatment, ozone is injected into and around damaged ligaments and muscle tissue. This injection encourages increased blood supply and the flow of healing nutrients, which stimulates the joints’ natural ability to rebuild, regenerate, and repair itself over time. In turn, the troublesome cycle of pain and inflammation is dramatically slowed or stopped altogether.
Is It Safe?
It is important to understand that any type of medical treatment comes with the chance of risks. When provided properly, this treatment has minimal to no side effects and prolozone therapy has a proven track record of providing safe and effective relief when treatments are provided by a licensed physician. Dr. Amaliya and the staff here have the experience and knowledge to provide these treatments, and we will review any possible risks with you prior to your treatment.
What Conditions Can Be Treated with Prolozone Therapy?
Prolozone therapy is designed to treat affected ligaments and muscles. Therefore, it is useful in treating a wide variety of chronic pain concerns related to:
- Arthritis in the knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder
- Neck, upper- and lower-back pain, with or without degenerative disc disease
- Shoulder pain due to rotator cuff injury
- Multiple myeloma pain
- Sprains and strains
- Ligament, muscle, and meniscal tears
- And more
What Results Can I Expect?
No two patients are the same — individual responses and results will vary. The results you receive from prolozone therapy depend on your body’s healing abilities and the severity of your condition. However, many patients report dramatic results following prolozone therapy, and there is a high chance that individuals will experience permanent relief from chronic pain. In fact, many patients report an immediate 50- to 80-percent decrease in pain. The team here at INMC will work closely with you to monitor your progress to determine when you have reached a level of maximum improvement for your condition.
Are Multiple Treatments Necessary?
In order to achieve the maximum therapeutic benefit of prolozone therapy, multiple treatments are typically necessary. How many treatments you need will depend on your body’s response to the treatment and the severity of the condition that we are treating. We have found success in repeating the injection process every four to six weeks while closely monitoring a patient’s progress. This close monitoring allows us to document benchmarks and assess improvements in order to determine the proper course of treatment for your needs. During your consultation with our office, we can provide you with an anticipated treatment plan so that you know roughly how often you’ll receive injections and the duration of your treatment.
