Also known as regenerative injection therapy, prolotherapy is a nonsurgical treatment method used to treat chronic ligament and tendon weakness. In prolotherapy, the weakened areas are injected with a proliferant solution that directly stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. As the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and become more capable of carrying out their tasks, the pain is alleviated.
Prolotherapy helps aid pain associated with:
- The back and neck
- Joints throughout the body
- Herniated discs
