Prolotherapy is a technique using injected natural substances to stimulate your body’s repair of painful, injured joints when the natural healing process needs assistance. Prolotherapy strengthens weakened connective tissue and alleviates 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 the surrounding connective tissue.
This therapy is safe, and a favorable option for young athletes to allow them to recover from injury rapidly and get back in the game. It is non-toxic and well tolerated with minimal down time. The injection therapy isn’t a one-time quick fix. Usually three or more treatments are administered at an interval of every month to continue to nudge the body to heal completely from wear-and-tear and acute injury.
