Many Americans live with pain every day. It is important to stay active however, that activity can lead to injuries and/or wear and tear on joints and tissue. Common causes of pain may be –
- Sports Injury
- Bad Shoes
What many people don’t realize is that you don’t have to live with the pain. There is something you can do about it and it is called Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy is a treatment that is also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT). Prolotherapy is an injection procedure used to strengthen tendons and ligaments that are painful or weakened from injury. Stem cells are gathered from the patient’s own body to treat injury or degenerative conditions. Prolotherapy includes Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is a process using the patient’s own growth factors extracted from a small sample of his or her blood. When injected into an injured area it can help trigger and drive the healing process. Prolotherapy is a popular and safe alternative to surgery or pain medications and is often used by professional athletes. Prolotherapy works by triggering a controlled inflammation that then stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms in order to lay down newer and stronger collagen cells and fibers, thus healing your injury and ridding you of the pain!
Typically, patients require anywhere from two to six regenerative injection therapy treatments. Our doctors also suggest that each treatment be spaced three to six weeks apart in order to achieve the best results possible. There is very little pain, a quick recovery, and because only local anesthesia is used, there is almost no risk. Results last about two years.
