What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a technique that uses injected natural substances to stimulate your body’s repair of painful, injured joints, when the natural healing process needs assistance. Prolotherapy strengthens weakened connective and aims to lessen chronic pain from sports injuries, damaged tendons and ligaments.
Prolotherapy falls under “regenerative” natural medicine treatments. It is the oldest technique of the regenerative therapies and remains a simple, safe option to nudge the body into more complete healing of the joint and surrounding connective tissue.
Would I Benefit from Prolotherapy?
This therapy is low-risk, and a favorable option for young athletes to help them to recover from injury more rapidly and allow for return to the playing field. It is non-toxic and well tolerated, with minimal down time. This injection therapy is not a one-time quick fix. Usually three or more treatments are administered at an interval of every month to continue to encourage the body to heal completely, both from wear-and-tear and acute injury.
