Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy/Regenerative Injection Therapy

Prolotherapy is a regenerative injection therapy that harness a person’s own innate ability to heal. We inject a combination of dextrose (sugar-water) and local anesthetic right into damaged tissue, which stimulates healing and the production of new, healthy tissue. Prolotherapy increases joint stability, ultimately improving function and decreasing pain.

Traditional approaches with anti-inflammatory drugs and surgery often fail to stabilize the joint and relieve pain permanently.  Prolotherapy has the unique ability to directly address the cause of instability and repair the weakened sites, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint.  When precisely injected into the site of pain or injury, these techniques create a mild, controlled inflammation which stimulates the body to lay down new tendon or ligament fibers, resulting in a strengthening of the weakened structure.  When the joint becomes strong, pain will be relieved.
