Prolotherapy is used in the treatment of:

  • Unstable joints (most commonly, but not limited to, the knee, shoulder, elbow, and ankle) 
  • Tendinopathies 
  • Venous Abnormalities (Varicose & spider veins) 
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Osteoarthritis

Prolotherapy is the use of precise injections of a mild irritant solution directly into the site of torn or stretched ligaments or tendons.  This method of injection creates a mild, controlled inflammatory response that encourages growth of new ligament or tendon fibers, resulting in a tightening of the weakened structure. Successive treatments repeat this process, allowing a gradual buildup of tissue to restore the original strength to the area. Injection of varicose and spider veins creates a similar mild response causing them to contract, making them smaller.
