Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy treatment is the injection of an irritant, usually pharmaceutical grade sugar water typically a Dextrose Solution, in the painful area or joint that creates a short duration of inflammation. Prolotherapy stimulates the immune system's own healing mechanism and promotes growth of new tissue. The new collagen and cartilage strengthens and restores joints and supporting tissues (such as the ligaments) reducing or eliminating many different types of pain.

 

This procdeure is almost always utilized as part of a comprehensive pain management program.
