Prolotherapy is a self-healing treatment whereby the injured area is injected with an irritant that causes inflammation. The inflammation creates a healing process that increases nutrients, blood supply and growth factors to the area of injury. Essentially, Prolotherapy allows the damaged tissue to repair itself through this process.
What Are the Benefits of Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment that allows the body to heal itself. Prolotherapy is often more affordable than other treatments and is deemed a safe way for the body to heal.
How Do Prolotherapy Treatments Work?
The number of Prolotherapy treatments a patient needs depends on the injury. Typically, the patient undergoes 2-8 treatments of Prolotherapy, and each treatment involves multiple injections into the injured tendon or ligament, which stimulates the injured tissue to eventually heal on its’ own.
