Prolotherapy Definition

Prolotherapy involves the treatment of ligamentous laxity and pain through the body’s natural ability to heal ligaments and muscles without scar tissue. Through the injection of solutions directly into the ligament, causing a mild inflammatory reaction, a thickening and strengthening occurs which helps to alleviate chronic pain. This therapy is best suited for chronic myofascial pain seen commonly in athletic, repetitive motion, whiplash, and industrial injuries as well as accidental injuries such as those caused by falls.
