WHAT IS PROLOTHERAPY?

 

Prolotherapy is an advanced  procedure that stimulates the body’s healing processes to repair injured and painful structures (joints, ligamenta and connective tissue).

When connective tissues are  torn or overused, the joint they are holding in place, destabilizes and can become painful.

Prolos means "to stimulate growth". Prolotherapy can repair the weakened sites and produce new collagen tissue, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint. Once the joint is stabilised, pain usually resolves diminishes significantly.
 

Why is Prolotherapy is so popular?

​The reason for its popularity is because it is effective, safe, low cost and extremely beneficial to treat chronic pain.

What is the propose purpose of Prolotherapy and why should modern clinics should introduce it?

  • Stimulates a limited inflammatory response, which mimics the normal repair sequence

  • Triggers the healing cascade

  • Increases fibroblastic activity collagen deposition

  • Strengthens ligamentous structures

  • Strengthens the enthesis (ligament or tendon insertion on the bone)

  • Relieves pain

 

HOW DOES PROLOTHERAPY WORK?

Prolotherapy involves the injection of irritant solutions into weakened or stretched ligaments which are a source of chronic pain.

This injection  strengthen the weld of disabled ligaments and tendons to bone by stimulating the production of new bone and fibrous tissue cells ("Pain in the Head and Neck and Neuritis" George S. Hackett, M.D.).

What is actually injected during Prolotherapy sessions?

 

The injection contains:

  • Phenol

  • Particulates

  • Pumice

  • Osmotic shock agents

  • Dextrose

  • Chemotactic agents

  • Cod liver oil

  • Growth factors

Who would benefit from Prolotherapy session?

 

Patients who suffer from the following would benefit from Prolotherapy:

 - Low back or mid-back pain including degenerative disc disease and sacro-iliac joint instability/dysfunction

 - neck pain

 - knee pain, knee meniscal tears

 - wrist or hand pain, osteoarthritis

 -  shoulder pain including rotator cuff tears

 - elbow pain including golfers or tennis elbow

 - foot pain including plantar fasciitis, ankle pain or instability

 - hypermobility

 - osteitis pubis

 - IT band syndrome, piriformis syndrome, temporal mandibular joint syndrome (TMJ), or other musculoskeletal pain or injury​

 - Pain arising form ligaments​

 - Pain with prolonged positioning postural

There is much medical data and research confirming the effectiveness of prolotherapy.
