Prolotherapy, otherwise known as Regenerative Injection Therapy or ligament reconstructive therapy is a popular nonsurgical procedure designed to stimulate the natural healing mechanisms of the body to repair the injured musculoskeletal tissues. The treatment promotes a healing response in a weakened tissue and small tears, with an objective of improving the functions of the back and alleviating pain. Prolotherapy is also referred to as proliferative injection therapy or sclerotherapy.

This is indeed a very effective and reliable treatment to alleviate joint pains.

Prolotherapy – Safe and Effective Solution to Pain
When it comes to surgeries, there are often risk factors involved and there is always a chance that they will either be ineffective or make the situation even worse. Also, pills need to go through the body’s entire system before it can eliminate pain. This just means that you often need to take relatively high dosage for the body to digest the medicine and start to relieve pain.
With prolotherapy, there is no need for the medicine to go through your entire system before it becomes effective because the medicine is directly injected into the affected area. It helps your body heal itself by improving the body’s healing ability.
Prolotherapy is a known innovative form of regenerative treatment that leads the way in helping treat both chronic and acute injuries, as well as joint pains. If you are suffering from a torn ligament, arthritis, a bulging disc, tendonitis or experience pain in any susceptible areas like your knee, shoulder, lower back or neck, then this is the best procedure you should consider.

Prolotherapy (aka Regenerative Injection Therapy – RIT), also known as ligament reconstructive therapy or sclerotherapy, is arecognized nonsurgical procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to strengthen joints weakened by trauma or arthritis. Joints weakened when ligaments and tendons are stretched, torn, or fragmented, become hypermobile and painful. Traditional approaches with anti-inflammatory drugs and surgery often fail to stabilize the joint and relieve pain permanently.
