How would you like to be able to sit through a movie, go for a walk, get a good night’s sleep and resume physical activities all without pain? Back pain, knee pain, ankle pain, joint pain and body pain can all seriously affect productivity and enjoyment of life. Being in constant pain and discomfort gets in the way of feeling happy and at peace. It is common knowledge that chronic pain does not allow the body to heal well.
What is prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy, short for proliferation therapy, is a regenerative joint injection and procedure where a natural irritant is injected into the soft tissue of an injured joint or ligament. It is considered regenerative cellular medicine that offers a non-surgical solution for pain relief. Prolotherapy is an alternative to joint therapy replacement or other surgical repairs. It helps to kick start the body’s natural healing response.
What would it be like to live a pain free life without complications?
Prolotherapy is used to treat knees, shoulders, ankles, wrists, elbows, hips and back. Once the injection is administered, the body will start to repair the damaged joint or ligament. Repetitive injections over time help to strengthen and stabilize the joint. The amount of procedures required varies on each injury, however, one can expect anywhere from four to fifteen injections that are spaced out over three to six months. Countless chronic pain sufferers are finding long-lasting relief.
Prolotherapy stimulates the body to repair and heal itself in order to reduce pain. It is an innovative technique that relieves pain by treating the root cause of the pain. Pain and anti-inflammatory medications treat symptoms but do not offer long-term relief.
Prolotherapy takes roughly thirty minutes and is performed in a medical office. It relieves pain without undergoing general anesthesia and surgery, no hospital stays or prolonged recovery time. You can expect to resume normal activities after the procedure.
Some patients see improvement after the first session, whereas others may experience mild but temporary swelling and stiffness. Some will notice improvement on subsequent procedures. Research studies have revealed that over 80% of patients treated with prolotherapy experience a good or excellent result, many of which are permanent.
