What is prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy) is a form of regenerative medicine. It stimulates the body’s healing processes to strengthen and repair injured tissues that are causing pain.
What conditions can be treated?
1. Chronic back pain due to facet joint arthritis, sacroiliac dysfunction
2. Knee pain due to meniscus injuries, arthritis, knee cap instability
3. Shoulder pain due to rotator cuff tears, labrum tears
4. Chronic pelvic pain
5. Tennis Elbow
How does it work?
Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms to lay down new tissue in the weakened area. This is done by a very directed injection to the injury site, “tricking” the body to repair again. The mild inflammatory response which is created by the injection encourages growth of new, normal ligament or tendon fibers, resulting in a tightening of the weakened structure. Additional treatments repeat this process, allowing a gradual buildup of tissue to restore the original strength to the area.
What is the cost?
