Prolotherapy, also called proliferation therapy or regenerative injection therapy is a complimentary regenerative treatment for muscle and joint pain. The core of the treatment involves utilizing repeated injections of a glucose or sugar based solution into damaged joints, ligaments or tendons that are causing pain. The glucose based solution stimulates natural growth and repair in the connective tissue of the joint, eventually leading to a reduction in pain.
Prolotherapy can be used to treat a variety of chronic pain conditions such as:
- Facet Syndrome (back and neck arthritis)
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Knee Osteoarthritis
- Hip Osteoarthritic
- SI Joint Dysfunction
- Tennis Elbow
- Tendonitis and Bursitis
Prolotherapy can be used in conjunction with other injection procedures or as a stand alone treatment option.
