We are thrilled to announce the addition of Prolotherapy to our list of services. If you suffer from chronic joint pain, prolotherapy is an amazing alternative to pain medications and surgery.
What is Prolotherapy?
Prolo is short for proliferation. This is an injection therapy that can help stimulate the growth and repair of connective tissue in painful and damaged joints. We typically inject a sugar substance (dextrose), mixed with a common anesthetic. When injected into a painful joint, this acts to trigger an immune system response. Growth factors and immune system components are recruited to the painful area which will stimulate healing and repair.
This is much different than steroid injections, which serve to shut off the immune system and prevent inflammation. Prolotherapy works with and supports the body's natural ability to heal.
What can Prolotherapy Treat?
Many common pain conditions will benefit from prolotherapy. These include:
- Golfer/Tennis Elbow
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Ankle and foot pain
- And more...
