Prolotherapy, also known as Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction and Regenerative Joint Injection, stimulates the body’s natural healing to repair. In prolotherapy treatment, a natural irritant is injected near the joint injury, which creates a mild inflammation in the surrounding tissue. This reaction encourages the growth of new, healthy ligament or tendon fibers, and tightens and repairs the weakened joint area.
As multiple treatments replicate this process, the tissue is gradually rebuilt to restore the original strength to the area. Since prolotherapy directly treats the cause of the instability, and repairs the weakened sites, the joint is permanently stabilized again. Once the joint or injured tissue is strengthened and stable, pain is reduced.
