Prolotherapy is a highly effective nutritive injection technique used to address joint pain and injuries. Prolotherapy treatment induces growth hormone factors to the area of injury. These growth hormone factors stimulate the body’s natural healing process to repair and heal ligaments and tendons, thus reducing pain, inflammation, and stabilizing weak and unstable joints.
Prolotherapy does not suppress pain, weaken ligaments, or lead to degeneration like cortisol does; instead, prolotherapy is regenerative--strengthening partially torn and damaged ligaments, tendons, and cartilage, thereby reducing joint pain. Thus, Prolotherapy is also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT).
Conditions we commonly treat with Prolotherapy
- Back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Degenerated or herniated discs
- Joint injuries
- Partially torn ligaments, cartilage, tendons
- Sports and motor vehicle injuries
- TMJ syndrome and pain
