I've only just heard about this, through searching on YouTube. Has anyone had ozone /prolozone injections into their knee and has it helped at all? It sounds similar to PRP in that there are claims about joint space thickening etc.

Is it like prolotherapy which is akin to snake oil?
Might be worth using the search function? There are a number of hits for Prolozone

My OS has suggested PRP to me as a last resort but he is utterly unconvinced it would work for widespread arthritis. And an expert physio I spoke to said it's experimental and there's little evidence beyond maybe helping inflammation. I decided to spend the money on an unloader brace instead. Stem cell injections also seem to be unproven (and v expensive)
