Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatment which is performed by injecting a solution, e.g. Dextrose, into an injured or unstable ligament, joint, or tendon. Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal and strengthen the injured area, to reduce pain, and to promote stability and function.

 

Prolotherapy is provided to patients who suffer from chronic ligament, joint, and tendon pain due to injury, laxity, and hypermobility. Prolotherapy is also provided to patients who are seeking an “anti-aging” approach to slow down and even reverse some of the degenerative effects of osteoarthritis. Due to its relative safety and effectiveness, Prolotherapy has been considered as an alternative therapy to surgery and to help when other treatments have failed.
