If you’ve ever dealt with a broken tendon or ligament, you know how painful it can be. Extraneous physical activity can cause even more frustrating pain if your physician cannot identify the problem—even with the use of an MRI.
Fortunately, an exciting new treatment known as prolotherapy has been gaining attention for its relieving and healing effects on all manner of painful body injuries. During prolotherapy, a dextrose solution injection is made at the site of pain on your body. This enables the body’s natural healing process by stimulating the production of new fibrous tissues to strengthen the affected area.
Do You Suffer Pain From a Sports Injury? For those who are physically active, it is often the case that the injuries you incur never fully heal. When a ligament—which connects bone to bone—is torn, you could experience ongoing pain and even the early onset of arthritis. Prolotherapy is a healthy and easy way to restore joint issues and eliminate pain. If you have experienced regular pain in your joints with little alleviation from medication or braces, then you may want to consider prolotherapy.
Do You Want to Avoid Surgery? Unlike surgeries, which most often cut tissue from the body, prolotherapy naturally stimulates the body’s ability to repair an injury. You can avoid the possible consequence of destabilized tissue that is common after surgery. The low risk of complication and side effects makes prolotherapy an attractive alternative to surgery.
