Prolotherapy

Overview
The goal of prolotherapy is to strengthen incompetent ligaments and tendons in the body. The science behind prolotherapy is that the body is introduced to an irritant to which the body creates an attack against. For example, our bodies create a defense by causing inflammation or a surge of cells and fluid to injured areas. Once that inflammation occurs, the body knows to start the repairing process. This can lead to strengthening of those ligaments and tendons and decrease pain and tenderness.

How does it Work?
Prolotherapy starts this process of repair by starting the process of inflammation. A licensed and trained provider can inject certain joints or the low back area with irritants.
