How can Prolotherapy help me? February 26 2018

For anyone dealing with problems such as back pain, neck pain, arthritis, and joint pain, Prolotherapy may be the perfect solution.

What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy involves injecting an otherwise non-pharmacological and non-active irritant solution into the body, generally in the region of tendons or ligaments for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue and alleviating musculoskeletal pain. "Prolo" in Prolotherapy comes from the word "proliferation" since the treatment is designed to proliferate tissue growth in the damaged area.

People who are experiencing constant pain in their joints are often dealing with laxity of ligaments and tendons. This means that an individual's ligaments and tendons may be too stretched out and are no longer properly keeping bones and tissue in place. When parts of the body are not in place and out of alignment, chronic pain tends to be a part of the individual's life until the problem has been solved.

What does this mean for you?

If you're suffering from constant pain in your ankles due to multiple ankle sprains, Prolotherapy could be the solution for you. Since it's a non-surgical injection technique, your ankles can fully recover without the need for full surgical procedures. The same goes for chronic neck pain and arthritis. This is good news since surgeries can cost you thousands of dollars and set you back with several weeks of rehab.
