Prolotherapy Is an Effective Type of Regenerative Medicine
Prolotherapy Solves Pain with
Actual Tissue Regeneration
Some people try to ignore their joint pain and just live with the limitation. Other pain sufferers risk liver and kidney damage by taking increasingly larger amounts of anti-inflammatory medications. Other people may even opt for surgery to solve their joint pain. Both traditional solutions for solving joint pain – drugs and surgery, have unacceptable health risks; so solving your joint pain with regenerative medicine is an important health option.

Joint Pain Can Stop You From Living Your Life To It's Fullest
Some people try to ignore and just live with their discomfort; while others risk liver and kidney damage by taking ever larger amounts of anti-inflammatory medications. Other people may opt for surgery to solve joint pain. Both of these approaches to managing joint pain – drugs and surgery, have health risks. The treatment for solving joint pain that is the safest and most effective is Prolotherapy.
Prolotherapy for Joint Regeneration
The medical treatment Prolotherapy solves joint pain without the use of risky drugs and surgery. Prolotherapy addresses joint pain by working with your natural ability to heal. Prolotherapy stimulates the natural regeneration of the connective tissue of your joints.
The word proliferation means to increase the number of an item. True healing of an injured and painful joint requires the re-growth and healing of injured or worn ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. The stimulation of this re-growth and healing happens when we use medicines and medical treatments that are known as Prolotherapy treatments.
The medical substances used in Prolotherapy activate fibroblast cells to re-grow injured parts of joints by laying down new collagen fibers. There are many medical substances used to stimulate joint regrowth.
The therapeutic substance with the longest record of use in Prolotherapy is the sugar Dextrose. Dextrose, in varying concentrations from 12.5 % to 25% is injected into areas of joint injury to stimulate regrowth. This treatment is safe and widely used, but it also has the drawback of working slowly and requiring as many as ten or more treatments for full regeneration.
The main drawback is that it may not fully activate healing with a single treatment and it may take as many as 8, 10, or more treatments to fully heal an injured joint. This delay in turning on healing has led to the development of other Prolotherapy medicine preparations, including Stem Cells and Platelet Rich Plasma.
If you know someone who has had Prolotherapy, and it did not work it is most likely that they had Dextrose Prolotherapy. I do not recommend this type of Prolotherapy since I have found other styles of treatment to give far superior results.
The leading form of Prolotherapy is Platelet Rich Plasma; also known as PRP Prolotherapy. Platelets are part of our circulating blood, and they control blood clotting. Platelets also contain “Platelet Derived Growth Factors”. These growth factors stimulate dormant stem cells to regrow injured or worn painful joints.
