Are you suffering from knee pain, hip or back pain? Have you been told surgery is your only option? Before you say yes to surgery, find out whether you are a suitable candidate for Prolotherapy.
What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a simple, natural technique that stimulates the body to repair the area when the natural healing process needs a little assistance. Prolotherapy uses a dextrose (sugar water) solution, which is injected into the affected ligament or tendon. This causes a localized inflammation in these weak areas which then increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients and stimulates the tissue to repair itself.
Prolotherapy is successful in treating most types of musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, back pain, neck pain, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, ankle and foot pain, ligaments and cartilage, degenerated or herniated discs; hip pain, knee pain, shoulder pain. Any joint, ligament or muscle tendon in the body that is experiencing pain can be treated with prolotherapy.
How Long Will It Take to Respond to a Course of Treatments?
The response to treatment varies from individual to individual and depends upon one’s healing ability and degree of injury. A few treatments may be all that is needed for some, while others may need 10 or more depending on the injury. In my experience, the average number of treatments is 3-6 before noticeable improvement. It is recommended to get an assessment to see if you are an appropriate candidate. Interested in finding out whether you are a candidate?
