What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy in Marysville

Prolotherapy in Marysville and throughout the country, is not a new treatment option for pain, even though it still remains relatively obscure. It has been in use in some form for centuries. Let’s explore this unique yet successful way of dealing with both acute and chronic pain.

  • Prolotherapy is an orthopedic procedure that accelerates the body’s innate healing processes to repair and reinforce connective tissues and painful joints. New collagen is produced, allowing the joint to stabilize and pain to diminish or be completely eliminated. This procedure is utilized for tendons, ligaments and joints.
  • Injections are directed into the injured site on repeat occasions that permit restoration of tissues. There is often some discomfort associated with the injections but this passes quickly and is eased with a pain reliever like acetaminophen. This process recurs about every 3-6 weeks for a total of about 4-6 treatments.
  • Success with this type of therapy is based upon the results of a thorough evaluation, ultrasound or radiological exam, lab work and physical.
  • Treatment works well for pain in the back, neck, knee, wrist, hand, shoulder, elbow, foot and ankle; osteoarthritis, TMJ and numerous other ailments.

There is a high rate of success with prolotherapy, although individual results can vary depending upon the specific injury, patient history and particular solution used.
