Prolotherapy is a safe, non-surgical treatment for chronic pain and joint degeneration using injections to stimulate healing. We have been using prolotherapy for over thirty years and have studied with field leaders including Dr. Paterson and Dr. Bjorn Eck. We have participated in prolotherapy clinics in Europe, Venezuela and Tahiti. With over 34 years experience in nutritional medicine, we emphasize metabolic diet and nutrient therapies along with prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma therapy to optimize the body’s healing response in joints and ligaments.
When we see a new patient who is considering prolotherapy, we will take a thorough history: perform a physical exam as well as review diet and nutrients. The prolotherapy solutions we use are combinations of Dextrose, bicarbonate, Lidocaine or Xylocaine, and sterile water. Additionally, vitamin B complex, B12 , Folic acid and magnesium are added to stimulate a healing response. Platelet rich plasma is a so called “autologous” therapy or a treatment which uses the patient’s own blood serum to use naturally occurring growth factors and cytokines to stimulate the body’s own self repair processes and stem cells.
We will be happy to discuss your questions regarding prolotherapy, prolozone or platelet rich plasma therapy and look forward to introducing you to this very effective, natural therapy for chronic pain, joint degeneration of the neck, back, knees, feet, hips, sacroiliac, and shoulders.
