Home / Prolotherapy


Prolotherapy is different from traditional medical treatments. It is part of an exciting branch of medicine called Regenerative Medicine. It uses the power of our own body to heal an injured tissue. This injured tissue could be a torn tendon in the shoulder, a torn meniscus in the knee, damaged cartilage in osteoarthritis, or a damaged tendon in in the tennis elbow or plantar fasciitis.

Call us for an evaluation by a pain medicine specialist to see if Prolotherapy is a good option for your pain condition.

Prolotherapy Overview

This non-surgical procedure relieves chronic pain with an injection that promotes the natural healing of injured tissues and joints. The limited blood supply and poor healing properties of ligaments, cartilage and tendons make treatment necessary after injury.

Traditional medical treatments often rely on an external substance such as a medication or surgery. Prolotherapy works by harnessing body’s own natural healing process. Sugar water is injected into the injured area. This creates body’s own inflammatory and healing response. Platelets rush to the site of inflammation releasing a variety of healing growth factors. This results in accelerated repair of the injury. Pain relief and functional recovery is significant. Most importantly in most cases we can avoid the use of medications and in some cases avoid surgery. Recovery time is minimal with most patients working during the treatment.
