What Is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is the process of injecting dextrose into the body to cause inflammation and encourage natural healing in an injured area. Sometimes, the body will not repair injuries in the joints and ligaments and needs a medicinal boost. When tissues are stimulated, they will start to heal, reducing pain and improving stability. This creates new cartilage and collagen which restores joints and the supporting soft tissues. Most patients will need regular injections over the course of several months.

What Ailments Are Treated by Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is frequently used on patients that have:

  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis

Prolotherapy vs. Corticosteriods

The common alternative to prolotherapy is injections of corticosteriods. However, corticosteriod injections only suppress inflammation in the joints and ligaments. While they may provide temporary relief, chances are that your symptoms will return. Corticosteriods also come with dangerous side effects such as the malfunction of the adrenal glands, osteoporosis, stomach ulcers, diabetes, weight gain, and high blood pressure. Prolotherapy is quick, easy, and simple. We recommend you talk to our doctors if you have any further questions regarding treatment.
