Prolotherapy Injections

prolotherapy Service What is prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is an injection treatment used to relieve pain. Your healthcare provider will inject a small amount of an irritant into your body. Dextrose (sugar) solution is the most commonly injected irritant.

Proponents of prolotherapy claim it relieves pain by jumpstarting your body’s natural healing abilities. Prolotherapy is used to help people that have musculoskeletal conditions (issues with your bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissues)

Prolotherapy is an alternative treatment, which means it’s not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Experts have found that it can benefit some people in certain situations, but it’s still not universally accepted because research has found inconclusive results. Some studies have found that prolotherapy does reduce people’s pain. Others find that any benefits are likely a placebo effect, meaning it helps people because they believe it will.

If you choose to use prolotherapy, make sure you receive it from a reputable clinic and provider. It’s important that you talk to your healthcare provider before adding any new treatments to your pain-management routine.

What is does prolotherapy treat?

Prolotherapy is used to reduce pain caused by musculoskeletal conditions. Proponents believe it can reduce people’s pain for any number of diseases or disorders that affect your bones, muscles and connective tissues. Prolotherapy is used to help people with the following conditions:

  • Arthritis.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Degenerative disk disease.
  • Tendinopathy.
  • Lower back pain.

It’s important to remember that prolotherapy doesn’t cure any of these conditions. It shouldn’t take the place of any treatments or medications your healthcare provider prescribes you.

Who needs prolotherapy?

Technically, nobody needs prolotherapy, but you can choose to use it. It’s not a standard treatment for any disease, condition or symptom. Even as it’s studied more, experts are still debating whether or not it’s an effective option to manage pain, and which conditions it benefits more than others (if any).

Why is prolotherapy used?

Prolotherapy is used to treat pain. It’s usually an elective treatment, meaning people choose to receive it rather than needing it because their healthcare provider prescribed it.
