Prolotherapy is a nonsurgical treatment also known as regenerative injection therapy that involves injecting tissue that is chronically in a nonhealing or painful state. Using various solutions and precise injection, the body is stimulated into an inflammatory cycle, and targeted natural healing may occur.
Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. The injection into the injured area stimulates the body to repair the inflamed tissue. This encourages new growth as well as different tissue feedback than the previous chronically injured state.
This form of treatment can help to accelerate the healing process without the use of surgery and serves an important role when surgical outcomes may not be favorable.
Conditions that can benefit from prolotherapy include:
• Ankle pain
• Back and neck pain
• Hip pain/bursitis
• Joint instability
• Ligament sprains
• Partially torn tendons and ligaments
• Plantar fasciitis
• Rotator cuff injuries
• Sacroiliac joint pain
• Shoulder, knee, and other joint pain
• Tennis or golfers’ elbow
