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