If you are a physician (MD or DO) helping patients through the management and treatment of chronic pain due to ligament instability, our annual clinical conference is designed for you.
Each October, the HHPF’s expert faculty gather on the beautiful University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to offer physicians detailed instruction in the use of prolotherapy. Participants will learn basic and advanced techniques to treat laxity of ligaments that often cause chronic myofascial pain.
This two and a half day conference offers lectures, extensive anatomy review, discussion, demonstrations, practice injections on cadavers with C-arm guidance, and viewing of injection videos with a faculty member and model. The hands-on workshops enable the conferee to have practical training in palpation and marking for prolotherapy. Discussions of prolotherapy indications and complications along with a panel discussion of complicated cases enhance the participant’s learning.
After this CME-eligible conference, participants will be able to:
Recognize new clinical science research in injection therapy for musculoskeletal conditions including knee osteoarthritis, low back pain and tendinopathies
Review new clinical science research in injection therapy for musculoskeletal conditions
Recognize research being conducted in prolotherapy with suggestions for collaborating in research projects
Describe the anatomy of ligaments
Participate in C-arm guided cadaver injections
Illustrate complications, and ways to avoid complications, when treating patients with prolotherapy
Recognize the relationship of biotensegrity to MSK function
Relate new advances in the use of several injection solutions, including PRP and stem cells, for musculoskeletal diagnosis and treatment
Explain advanced prolotherapy treatment protocols for the treatment of chronic pain
Identify ways to promote a prolotherapy practice and successfully submit billing documentation
