Prolotherapy is a gentle-but-powerful injection therapy clinically proven to reduce joint and muscle pain and promote healing.  During a prolotherapy treatment, a small amount of solution (typically including dextrose and the anaesthetic procaine) is injected into a joint space and/or the surrounding muscles. This “restarts” the body’s natural healing process, for stronger, healthier, less painful muscles and joints.

Conditions treated include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lateral epicondylitis (“tennis elbow”)
  • Medial epicondylitis (“golfer’s elbow”)
  • Tendon or ligament injuries
  • Muscular tension or discomfort
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Bursitis
  • Headache

Advanced Injection Therapies such as prolotherapy are offered at IHC by Dr. Erik Boudreau, ND, FABNO. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, visit us online, in the clinic or call us at 604-888-8325.
