Prolotherapy is an all-natural, permanent treatment, as it relies on the body repairing itself to reduce pain. Contrast to pain relivers that provides only temporary relief.
Prolotherapy is an injection based complementary therapy for common chronic musculoskeletal conditions including tendinopathy, knee osteoarthritic and low back pain. It involves the injection of irritant solutions into tendon, ligaments and tendinous attachments and adjacent joint spaces.
The solutions used in Prolotherapy are designed to have a combination of anesthetic and proliferant qualities. The anesthetic agent alleviates the pain trigger while the proliferant agent begins to strengthen the ligaments and tendons at the trigger or tendon point.
Treatment typically involves at least three injection sessions one month apart, but injection interval vary from 2 to 6 weeks.
Possible adverse effects include:
Yes, it is crucial to see your physiotherapist 2 to 7 days after prolotherapy treatment. This helps to check join mobility and relax any muscle spasm. Also, physiotherapy is important one or two months after the last injection when the ligaments are tightening. Then, you will experience long-lasting relief from the IMS (intramuscular stimulation) and you are ready to start increasing your stretching and strengthening plan.
Prolotherapy can be quite costly. Many insurance companies will not cover Prolotherapy, so individuals must pay for their treatments.
