Prolotherapy Injections & Solutions
Prolotherapy injections contain a solution that is meant to irritate connective tissues (such as tendons or ligaments) in an effort to stimulate the human body’s own healing ability. The ultimate goal of prolotherapy injections is to repair and strengthen damaged or weak connective tissues that cause chronic or acute pain.
Prolotherapy solutions normally consist of one or more of the following:
• Sodium Morrhuate
These prolotherapy injections are normally applied as close to the affected tissues as possible to stimulate the body’s regenerative ability.
Conditions Treatable With Prolotherapy Injections
Prolotherapy has been shown to be an excellent solution for many joint and connective tissue injuries, such as:
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• Tennis Elbow
• Hip & Ankle Pain
• Rotator Cuff & Shoulder Pain
• Lower Back Pain
• Neck Pain
More research is being done into the applications of prolotherapy injections, adding to the ever-growing list of conditions treatable with the therapy.
