What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is a solution comprised of various combinations of dextrose, lidocaine or procaine, and saline. This unique substance works to create a mild inflammatory reaction thereby stimulating the body's own healing mechanisms. Prolotherapy is used to repair injured and painful joints or connective tissue.
By activating fibroblasts in the injured area, prolotherapy allows for new cell growth and collagen deposition. This makes prolotherapy especially effective for treating ligament sprains, tennis/golfers elbow, joint laxity and instability, and plantar fasciitis.
