Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is short for "proliferative therapy". It is a specialized medical procedure designed to alleviate chronic pain, promote tissue healing, and restore joint stability. Prolotherapy aims to provide long-lasting pain relief by addressing the underlying cause of the pain rather than masking the symptoms. This non-surgical approach primarily targets musculoskeletal issues such as ligament and tendon injuries, joint instability, and osteoarthritis.

Prolotherapy works on the principle of stimulating the body's natural healing processes. It involves the injection of a solution, typically dextrose (sugar water) and lidocaine into the affected area. The injection initiates a controlled inflammatory response, which triggers the body's repair mechanisms. This inflammation response encourages the growth of new collagen and connective tissue. As the treated area strengthens and stabilizes, patients often experience reduced pain, improved joint function, and increased mobility.

Prolotherapy is usually administered in a series of sessions with each session spaced several weeks apart. The number of sessions required depends on severity and type of condition being treated.
