What is Prolotherapy?

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"][vc_column_text]By Dr. Gayle Maguire N.D.

Prolotherapy is an exciting treatment for loose tendons and ligaments, helping to tighten and heal old injuries that never healed well or keep getting re-injured.  If your doctor is discussing surgery or cortisone injections, prolotherapy should be considered.

It is considered a regenerative injection technique, developed in the 1930's, and is getting lots of positive attention for its results and safety.  A mild solution of salt and sugar water are injected into problem areas with typically a 24 hour downtime.  Discomfort is usually minimal and results can be seen in as little as 1 treatment, though it can take several.
