Prolotherapy is a treatment used for chronic pain conditions, sports injuries and osteoarthritis. This therapy stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal by injection of 10% to 15% Dextrose into the site of pain, more specifically where the ligament or tendon attaches to the bone. The injected solution works by irritating the weak area causing a localized inflammation reaction to promote tissue repair and healing.
What to expect…
- The response to treatment varies, depending on one’s healing ability
- The average number of treatment sessions is 3-6
- The injections are preformed 1 to 6 weeks apart
- Injection site may be sore and or bruised for a few days following procedure
