Prolotherapy in Cold Spring & Surrounding Areas

What Is It?

person getting shoulder injectionProlotherapy is a form of regenerative medicine used to encourage the natural healing process within your body. It is an injection treatment that uses a small amount of irritant, such as dextrose (sugar solution), to irritate the damaged tissue. This will stimulate the healing process. Prolotherapy is commonly used to help with muscle, tendon, ligament and soft tissue injuries.

Who Can It Help?

Prolotherapy can often be beneficial in many chronic and acute conditions, such as:

  • Arthritis, especially in the hips, knees or shoulders
  • Sports injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Muscle strain/sprains
  • Chronic trigger points
  • Tears in tendons or ligaments
  • Meniscus tears
  • Chronic tendonitis
  • Chronic SI joint pain
The time it takes to experience relief varies depending on factors such as the severity of your condition, how long you’ve had it, comorbidities, and your age. While some patients notice an immediate improvement, most notice a difference within a few weeks.

What to Expect

Following the injection, you may feel a notable increase in pain for a few days, but this is a normal part of the healing process. The pain intensity becomes less each day as functional mobility and general functional ability increase along with endurance and strength. By treating injured tissues before the damage progresses, surgical intervention may be avoided.
