About Prolotherapy offers the following resources for those wanting to explore prolotherapy further...
The goal of using comprehensive prolotherapy to treat painful or injured areas is to stimulate the body to repair itself. Prolotherapy can regrow cartilage, repair strains and sprains, reverse arthritis, and stimulate connective tissue repair. Prolotherapy injections initiate the normal inflammatory healing reaction, but the body’s immune system responds and triggers the collagen growth that is required to repair injured ligaments, tendons, and cartilage that occur with strains, sprains, chronic painful conditions, arthritis, sports injuries, and connective tissue deficiency problems.
Traditional treatments are often anti-healing instead of pro-healing. Not only do they not stimulate healing, they further accelerate degeneration. Prolotherapy offers an alternative to NSAIDs, cortisone shots, arthroscopy and/or joint replacement surgery by assisting the body to heal itself naturally.
