Prolotherapy is a procedure that reconstructs joints, ligaments and tendons weekend by trauma or arthritis. It is a non-surgical treatment which stimulates healing of the injured or degenerated area. Through a series of precise injections, the doctor stimulates an inflammatory response. This is the body’s signal to being the natural healing process. Prolotherapy is unique, in that it uses the body’s built – in healing mechanisms, allowing it to repair the injured musculoskeletal tissue.
When ligaments and tendons are stretched, torn or fragmented, they become hyper – mobile and painful. The body’s natural response to this type of injury is inflammation, which signals the body that there is an injury that needs repairing. The body responds by sending specialized white blood cells, fibroblasts and growth factors which help to remove debris and ultimately, repair tissue and lay down new collagen, the supporting structure for our tendons and ligaments. Rather than fighting this natural process and suppressing the inflammation, prolotherapy uses it. With a series of precise injections into the damaged areas the doctor will stimulate an inflammatory response, therefore signaling the body to begin the ‘healing cascade’. We are using the body’s own systems and natural functions to promote not only permanent pain relief, but regrowth and healing as well. Prolotherapy has the unique ability to treat not only the pain, but the cause of the pain. This results in permanent stabilization of the joint and, therefore, an end to pain and weakness – all without drugs, surgery, scar tissue, anesthesia, or side effects.
