Prolotherapy, also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy, is an orthopedic procedure used to treat painful, weak joints that have suffered traumatic injury or arthritis. Prolotherapy involves the injection of a solution into the joint, and may replace the need for a painful surgery with a long recovery period. The injected substance triggers a local inflammatory reaction in the joint, signalling a cascade in which new collagen is laid down, thus tightening the adjoining ligaments and strengthening the joint. Prolotherapy has an 85-90% success rate in treating pain and rehabilitating joint function.
Prolotherapy is used in the treatment of the following:
OSTEOARTHRITIS (Degenerative Joint Disease)
LOCALIZED JOINT PAIN: back, neck, knees, hips
CARPEL TUNNEL SYNDROME
MUSLCE PAIN & INJURY
GOLFER’S & TENNIS ELBOW
