Is Prolotherapy Safe | Identifying Risks & Side Effects

 

Prolotherapy Is Safe For Most People

Prolotherapy is a method in which connective tissue, such as ligaments and tendons, is stimulated to trigger the body’s natural process of healing and strengthening.  As it is an injection technique, mild discomfort and slight bleeding is normally the only side effect reported.

Other mild side effects, including lightheadedness and minor infections are also possible, but under the care of a professional therapist they are exceedingly rare.  Under most circumstances, prolotherapy is indeed a safe and effective treatment for acute and chronic ligament and tendon pain.  However, there are some conditions that should be discussed with your doctor or therapist before beginning prolotherapy.

Risks Factors That May Cause Prolotherapy To Be Unsafe

There are a number of underlying risks that can increase the severity of the otherwise rare and mild side effects of prolotherapy.  These include:

•    Bleeding Disorders – Conditions like anemia, as well as people who are taking anticoagulants will most likely be advised not to begin prolotherapy due to the risk of excessive bleeding.

•    Known Allergies – Agents used in prolotherapy are usually safe, and though allergic reactions to the medication are rare, the possibility exists.  Discuss any known allergies with your therapist before beginning prolotherapy.

•    Abscesses – People who have or are prone to getting abscesses are at an increased risk for infection.  Discuss this with your therapist as well.

•    Septic Arthritis – Septic arthritis also carries an increased risk of infection with prolotherapy.

•    Gout – Acute redness, swelling, and pain in the joints (especially in the big toe) should also be discussed with your therapist.

•    Cellulitis & Skin Infections – Infections of the skin, whether chronic or acute may be a concern for prolotherapy.

•    Fractures – Bone breaks and fractures may also present an increased risk for side effects – especially if the fracture is near the treatment area.

As with any medical treatment, it is best to make an appointment with a doctor or licensed prolotherapy therapist to talk about your medical history and any medical conditions or concerns you may have to ensure that prolotherapy is safe for you.
