Injection Therapy (Prolotherapy)

Injection therapy (medically known as prolotherapy) is regenerative therapy (or sclerotherapy) used an alternative treatment for chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Prolotherapy is a procedure where a solution such as dextrose (sugar) or lidocaine (local anaesthetic) is injected into the injured soft tissue. The solution kick starts the body’s restorative response to the injured joints, ligaments and tendons. It is not a surgical treatment, rather a conservative way to manage pain.

Prolotherapy can be supplemented with a co-management plan and can also be a means to delay or possibly eliminate the need for surgery. Prolotherapy has been successfully used in western medicine for over 60 years. Research and systematic reviews show support for the treatment of tendinopathies, ligament dysfunction, bursitis and neuroma’s.
