Weak ligaments and tendons are often the cause of pain and joint damage.
Traditional approaches, such as surgery, physical therapy or anti-inflammatory drugs, often fail to stabilize the joint or provide lasting relief from pain. Prolotherapy directly addresses the cause of the instability by strengthening and healing stretched or torn ligaments and tendons. Improved function means less pain.
Prolotherapy (Reconstructive Joint Therapy) is a well-established orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s ability to strengthen damaged or weak ligaments, tendons and joints. This form of pain relief helps rebuild weakened areas to relieve back pain and other chronic pain. This natural back pain relief can help you get back on your feet and pain free.
“Prolo” is short for proliferation
The treatment is considered “Prolo” therapy because it causes proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament or tendon tissue in areas where they have become weak.
Prolotherapy injections contain anesthetic agents and natural substances. Precise injections are made directly into the damaged ligaments, tendons or joints. This creates a mild, controlled inflammatory response that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, promoting new fiber growth and tightening. This natural pain relief helps your body rebuild and repair itself.
If chronic pain keeps you from enjoying physical activities, work and other aspects of daily life, Prolotherapy could be the answer for you.
