Chronic Plantar Fasciitis

A new article was published in the medical journal Foot & Ankle Specialist: Ultrasound-Guided Injection of Dextrose Versus Corticosteroid in Chronic Plantar Fasciitis Management: A Randomized, Double-Blind Clinical Trial.

In this randomized clinical trial, the effect of ultrasound-guided injection of dextrose versus corticosteroid in Chronic Plantar Fasciitis was evaluated and compared.


The proper concentrations of dextrose and lidocaine in regenerative injection therapy: in vitro study.

A new article was published in The Korean journal of pain: The proper concentrations of dextrose and lidocaine in regenerative injection therapy: in vitro study.

In this study the researchers investigated the effects of low concentrations of dextrose and lidocaine in fibroblasts and suggest the optimal range of concentrations of dextrose and lidocaine in prolotherapy.


Cervical spine instability and Pyloric stenosis and digestive conditions in the adult patient.

Ross Hauser, MD. Published a new article on cervical spine instability and pyloric stenosis and digestive conditions in the adult patient.

In this article Dr. Hauser writes that he sees many patients who have food that gets stuck in their stomach. What is one possible cause for this stuck food? It can be a problem of the pyloric valve or the “doorway” that separates the stomach contents from those of the small intestine. When the pyloric valve doesn’t work properly, food stays in the stomach, and symptoms such as bloating, nausea, vomiting, reflux can occur. He makes a connection to cervical spine instability and how Prolotherapy to the neck may offer benefits.
