Stimulating the Body's Own Repair Mechanisms to Heal Tissue and Relieve Pain via Regenerative Injectables
Prolotherapy is an injection based, natural treatment for chronic pain. From athletic injuries, auto accidents, overuse, arthritis or the general aging process - This effective treatment aids in generating new tissues to strengthen degenerated or injured ligaments and tendons with the goal of restoring stability to joints and relieving pain.
Common Conditions Treated
Muscle Strains and Tears
Spinal Disc Disease
Pain Post Surgery
Shoulder Labral Tears
Rotator Cuff Tears
Tendonosis - Tennis & Golfers elbow
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Dextrose Prolotherapy acts by prompting a local inflammation, via injection of a natural irritant, to trigger the innate healing process.
This results in the deposition of new collagen and the enlargement and strengthening of damaged ligaments, tendons, and inter-joint structures. This process can improve joint stability, function and ultimately decrease pain to the injured area.
Dextrose Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for a wide variety of painful chronic musculoskeletal conditions which are not responsive to conventional therapy approaches such as corticosteroid injections, medications including non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and surgery.
Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy - PRPP
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy or PRP utilizes a preparation of highly concentrated platelets to amplify the natural healing process.
Platelets, best known for their role in clotting blood, also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors, which are important in the healing of injuries. These growth factors help stabilize damaged tissue, increase connective tissue synthesis, and stimulate new blood vessel formation; this in turn translates to the regeneration of tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone.
This simple therapy works in three steps.
A small amount of blood is collected from the patient.
The blood is processed to concentrated growth factor rich PRP.
The PRP is then injected to the local area of injury.
The latest discovery in regenerative medicine. Exosomes are naturally occurring microscopic vesicles or “bubbles” released by cells that aid the transport of growth, repair and anti-inflammatory factors between cells.
These vesicles act as facilitators for cell to cell communication. They travel to the target area of injury, are then taken up by local cells to facilitate healing. Exosomes possess a strong regenerative potential and can normalize various pathological and inflammatory processes in chronic injury.
Exosomes are an effective regenerative therapy alone or along with PRPP to enhance the healing process.
