Prolotherapy affects the injured site by causing a series of events that promote good chemicals, enzymes, and nutrients to help heal the damaged tissue. This can help tighten the ligaments and tendons around a joint, or may accelerate healing of a torn muscle.
Treatment consists of a series of injections spread over the course of several weeks or months depending on the severity of pain and underlying cause. Prolotherapy is not a nutrient or a steroid. It stimulates the body to naturally repair itself, strengthen tissues and ligaments, and build up the skeletal framework.
How Prolotherapy Injections Promote Holistic Health
The human body has many natural healing mechanisms that regulate your health. Prolotherapy triggers your body’s strongest healing system, empowering your body’s cells to being repairing any damaged ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Prolotherapy helps ensure that your body heals as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
How Long Does Prolotherapy Take?
Since prolotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure, each treatment is relatively quick. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities after receiving the injections. Depending on the severity of pain and the underlying causes, prolotherapy treatments may last a few weeks up to a few months.
At Harmony Medicine, our prolotherapy doctors understand that back pain, sports injuries, and torn ligaments are painful and debilitating. It can be difficult to enjoy quality of life or be productive if pain is constantly interfering with daily activities.
