PROLOTHERAPY

Prolotherapy, short for "proliferation therapy," this therapy is also known as nonsurgical ligament and tendon reconstruction, or regenerative injection therapy. Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body's own natural healing mechanisms to repair injured musculoskeletal tissue by producing new collagen and cartilage.


Types of Prolotherapy include Dextrose therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (Referred to as "PRP Injection Therapy"). There are dozens of studies purporting to show the benefits of prolotherapy for chronic pain. In joints, pain usually arises due to chronic stretching of the injured ligaments or tendon due to past injuries. The new collagen and cartilage strengthens and restores joints and supporting soft tissue, reducing or eliminating many different types of pain.
If you have tried a variety of therapy with no or slow progress,  explore prolotherapy injection therapy. This therapy is safe and has minimal side effects.

Many professional athletes all over the world have been utilizing Prolotherapy Injection therapy. With this treatment many professional athletes are able to get back to playing in only a few weeks, instead of the normal recovery time of 2-6 months.
Athletes : Tracy McGrady, Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose, Rafael Nadal, Tiger Woods, Alex Rodriguez, Hines Ward
