Regenerative Medicine Injections

Regenerative Medicine Injections Including Prolozone, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Exosome Therapy

These three treatments are state-of-the-art for musculoskeletal and joint injuries including:

    • degenerative and arthritic knees, hips, and shoulders, including bone-on-bone
    • neck pain
    • low back pain and sciatica
    • rotator cuff injuries
    • bulging discs, degenerated discs
    • tennis elbow
    • carpal tunnel syndrome
    • plantar fasciitis

These three treatments can be administered individually or in combination. Given together, they promote the repair and regeneration of joints, tendons, and ligaments with different mechanisms, so the healing effects are magnified. 

Professional athletes in every sport utilize these regenerative medicine injections to return more quickly to the field of play after minor injuries, to recover from what used to be career ending injuries without surgery, and to prolong their careers. 

Each of these treatments:

        • Decrease inflammation
        • Increase blood supply
        • Increase energy production by cells
        • Activate stem cells
        • Promote repair and regeneration of tissues, including cartilage and collagen

Prolozone is injecting ozone into joints or connective tissues. Ozone is a form of oxygen; it is O3 and oxygen is O2. Medical ozone was used in the 1890s and in World War I. Countries including Germany, Spain, Italy, and Russia have long documented the safety and effectiveness of medical ozone treatments and have created protocols that have been in use for many decades. 

Platelet Rich Plasma

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injecting your own platelets. Platelets are the first cells to arrive at an injured site, and they are packed with over thirty different growth factors to promote repair and regeneration. Your platelets are obtained by drawing a tube of blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to divide the blood products into layers. 


Injecting exosomes is stem cell therapy. They are the signaling molecules that stem cells produce that activate cell regeneration. The exosomes injected are derived from the umbilical cord of a healthy newborn baby.

Dr. Castro is one of only two doctors I would seek and highly recommend for chronic disease. The natural and alternative methods he uses work and he has been very successful in treating diseases like cancer, arterial blockage, diabetes and autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia. The natural treatments he uses heal the body, unlike drugs which only treat symptoms allowing the body to become sicker.
