Natural Injections for Pain Management

What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a natural non-surgical method of assisting the body to heal injured or weakened joints, ligaments and tendons. With Prolotherapy, the weakened areas are injected with a solution that stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. As the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and vibrant, the pain is alleviated and motion is restored. Whether a joint, ligament or tendon is causing you pain or instability, Prolotherapy might be the right choice for you.

What can Prolotherapy treat?
Prolotherapy can help with arthritis, knee injuries, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, hip dysfunction, TMJ, bulging discs, lumbar or cervical spine instability, bursitis, ACL Tears, rotator cuff injuries and other joint conditions.

How many treatments does it take?

Most patients require about 3 to 6 prolotherapy treatments to restore function and relieve pain. The treatments are usually given at two to four week intervals.

Will I need to continue care after treatment?

Once treated, the problem should be fixed. Healing will continue to take place for at least one year following treatment. Of course, if there is another injury or insult to the area that had been treated, an additional treatment may be needed.

What is Prolozone?
Prolozone is a Prolotherapy injection which will include Ozone(O3). O3 is a super oxygen molecule which has many health promoting properties including the stimulation of stem cells, which promote tissue healing.

Is Prolotherapy safe?

As with any procedure, there are risks and side effects which will vary depending on the area being treated. The doctor will discuss these possibilities fully with patients during the pre-treatment consultation. On the other hand, Prolotherapy is an extremely safe procedure. The risks are far less than chronically taking aspirin or Motrin to temporarily alleviate chronic pain.
