Prolotherapy: Delivering a Non-surgical Solution for
Traumatized Joints & Chronic Pain
What is Prolotherapy
Prolotherapy is also known as Regenerative Ligament Therapy. It is a series of injections for treating pain caused by injured or weak ligaments and joints. Prolotherapy is effective for acute or chronic pain, arthritis and unresolved injuries.
Prolotherapy: During the initial exam, palpation to identify the precise location of traumatized ligaments is the essence of effective treatment. The prolotherapy solution is injected into the injured ligament. This causes a mild localized healing reaction producing an increase in the strength and thickness of the ligaments. The strengthened ligaments stabilize this joint, removing the source of the pain. Three to eight treatments are generally needed for stabilization.
