Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Injections

Comprehensive Prolotherapy is an injection technique that uses a simple sugar, dextrose, and in some cases, it is combined with Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (blood platelets) to address damage and micro-tearing of the ligaments or soft tissue in the body. A series of injections are placed at the tender and weakened areas of the affected structures of the body. These injections contain a proliferant to stimulate the body to repair and heal by inducing a mild inflammatory reaction.

The localized inflammation causes healing cells to arrive at the injured area and lay down new tissue, creating stronger ligaments and rebuilding soft tissue. As the ligaments tighten and the soft tissues heal, the body structures function normally rather than subluxing and moving out of place. When the body functions normally, the pain and swelling go away.

Assist and Accelerate Natural Healing

Nature’s way is for chondrocytes (healing and rebuilding cells in our body) to repair the damage. Our therapies can assist in this process and accelerate healing. During this healing, the body produces its own specialized inflammatory process that acts as a protective barrier to protect the new cartilage that is being built. Once the repair is complete, our body shuts down the inflammation. The inflammation is no longer needed.

Prolotherapy removes damaged tissue and debris from the joint – clean up.

When Prolotherapy is injected into the joint, it stimulates the production of leukocytes (an immune cell that absorbs and gets rid of diseased tissue) and macrophages. The term macrophage is from the Greek meaning, “Big Eaters.” They eat debris and damaged tissues in the joint. Prolotherapy brings oxygen to the joint to help provide healing cells energy and a clean, safe work environment.
