What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is a natural non-surgical method of assisting the body to heal injured or weakened joints, ligaments and tendons. The weakened areas are injected with a solution that stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. As the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and vibrant, the pain is alleviated and motion is restored.

Prolotherapy-for-Seniors

Prolotherapy might be the right treatment choice for you. Prolotherapy can help with:

  • Arthritis
  • Knee injuries
  • Tendinitis (tennis elbow)
  • Hip dysfunction
  • Bulging discs
  • Lumbar or cervical spine instability
  • Bursitis
  • ACL tears
  • Rotator cuff injuries to name a few

How Does Prolotherapy Work?

The Prolotherapy technique involves the injection of a proliferant (a mild irritant solution – dextrose, phenol, glycerin, etc.) that causes an inflammatory response. This stimulates the healing process. A local anesthetic is used so there is minimal discomfort with the injections.What is Prolotherapy

The results are a stronger or larger tendon or ligament that can hold body structures in place more effectively. The weakened area heals itself, and the patient’s pain is reduced or eliminated. If you have been asked to use cortisone injections, Prolotherapy is a very good alternative as long-term studies have shown that cortisone injections actually weaken tissue.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Most patients require about 4 to 6 prolotherapy treatments to restore function and relieve pain, but many find improvement after only one session. The treatments are usually given at two to four week intervals.

The by former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, who himself was a prolotherapist, heartily endorses Prolotherapy.
