Prolotherapy, also called regenerative injection treatment (R I T), takes its name from the increase in healthy tissue that develops after the injection. The increased tissue strength is beneficial in healing tissue tears, like loose ligaments and shoulder capsules. The main active ingredient in the injection is dexterous. Dextrose solution, by way of osmotic attraction of your body’s healing cells, (neutrophils, Macrophage, stem cells) brings a natural healing response to tissues. This treatment has been done for over 50 years and is practice in many countries around the world. By strengthening weakened connective tissue we can often alleviate skeletal muscular pain and improve function and mobility. Studies have shown that prolotherapy provides benefits for people with chronic pain, as well as those with sports injury. These injections are often used as an alternative to invasive arthroscopic surgery. After injection you will rest for two days and start or restart a physical therapy program. Prolotherapy can be used to treat the entire body. Some examples include: knee pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, hip pain, foot and ankle pain as well as Conditions like tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, arthritis and rotator cuff injuries.
