Prolotherapy is an advanced treatment modality that aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes to repair and strengthen injured and painful joints and connective tissues. When tendons or ligaments are stretched or torn, the associated joint destabilizes causing pain. Prolotherapy is a targeted injection containing natural substances such as dextrose, saline, and sarapin and anaesthetic agents to create a mild inflammatory response that encourages the growth of new ligament and tendon fibres. This results in a tightening and restabilization of the joint structure. Prolotherapy is safe and extremely effective in relieving the pain and weakness associated with tendon and ligaments injuries without the need for surgery.

Prolotherapy FAQs

The anticipated rate of success depends on a number of variables, including the patient’s history and ability to heal, and the type of solution used. In patients with low back pain, studies have shown 85% to 95% of patients experience improvement with Prolotherapy (compared to studies showing a 52% improvement with back surgery). Many studies show a high success rate when Prolotherapy is used for various ligament, tendon or joint pain/injuries. The team at The Clinic YYC can assess your injury and help you decide if Prolotherapy could work for you.
