Prolotherapy also know as regenerative injection therapy(RIT).. It is a well recognized nonsurgical orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing processes by initiating a local inflammation cascade, which triggers release of growth factors and collagen deposition. Websters Third new International Dictionary defines Prolotherapy as “the rehabilitation of an incompetent structure, such as ligament or tendon by the induced proliferation of new cells”. This therapy technique involves an injection of solution to the site of painful and degenerated joints, ligaments, tendon insertions, and in adjacent joint spaces in order to promote growth of normal cells and tissues. The cause of a great deal of musculoskeletal pain is related to injuries(traumatic or overuse),age, degenerative changes, resulting in ligamentous laxity. Natural healing of tendons and ligaments is slow and most often than not, tendons and ligaments may not heal backgrounds their normal strength or endurance. Also they have poor blood supply. At the same time, they have reach nerve supply. These nerve endings signal the body regarding structural damage of tendons and ligaments usually causes a lot of discomfort, chronic muscle spasms, trigger points and pain. Such pain can often radiate to arms and legs, resembling radicular pain(Hackett ligament referral pain patterns). Healing can be additionally by anti inflammatory medications(pain killers) most often prescribed as a traditional treatment protocol. Prolotherapy, with its unique ability to directly address the root cause of the disability, can repair the weakened sites and resulting in restoration of proper function by proliferating new ligamentous tissue.
Prolotherapy promotes genuine, natural body healing and uses no artificial substances, no medications and nothing that can cause adverse future side effects. The great advantage of Prolotherapy is that it is Safe. In other words, Prolotherapy naturally promotes tissue Rejuvenation.
Research and scientific studies have shown that Prolotherapy is superior to the traditional consvervative treatments in relieving the root cause of problems of chronic musculoskeletal pain, sports injuries and arthritis. Prolotherapy is a effective, trustworthy, reliable and a viable alternative to noneffective conservative treatments including surgery.
