How Does Prolotherapy Work?

Prolotherapy uses a small irritant to prompt your body’s natural healing process.

Our bodies are controlled by chemical messengers. These messengers use our body’s blood flow to send signals to our brain. Our brain then disperses marching orders, prioritizing the most pressing needs first. 

Prolotherapy is an injection therapy that triggers the brain to focus on a specific area of the body. It does so by injecting small amounts of natural irritants into the soft tissue surrounding the injured joint or ligament. 

The irritant helps heighten the message that this area of your body needs to be fixed. In essence, you’re helping your brain prioritize your body’s healing efforts.

Reduced Pain Improves Your Quality of Life

These treatments encourage the natural growth of new ligament and tendon tissues, helping your injury heal.

The ligament and tendon tissues grown post-treatment tend to be thicker and stronger than the original tissues. This can speed recovery, reduce inflammation, and prevent further injury. 

The many benefits of prolotherapy can include:

  • Greater ability to maintain muscle health and flexibility
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Decreased levels of pain
  • Better joint health
  • Stronger joints and less joint stiffness
  • Better muscle relaxation
  • Improved exercise tolerance
  • Improved athletic performance
