We are committed to excellence in healthcare.Prolotherapy involves injection of any substance that promotes or stimulates the growth of normal cells and tissue, especially ligaments, tendons and cartilage, thereby regenerating and strengthening the lax or weakened tissue and alleviating musculoskeletal pain. “Prolo” is short for proliferation (propagation, generation). Prolotherapy is now commonly referred to a Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT).

Prolotherapy focuses on repairing and optimizing the structure and function of tendons and ligaments. A tendon attaches a muscle to the bone and is involved in movement of the joint. A ligament connects two bones and is involved in the stability of the joint. A strain is defined as a stretched or injured tendon and a sprain is a stretched or injured ligament. When ligaments or tendons are injured, the immune system is stimulated to repair the injured area. Ligaments and tendons generally have a poor blood supply and so incomplete healing is common after an injury. When the ligaments and tendons become lax and weak, the joint becomes unstable and chronic pain results.

With regard to trauma and injury, the greatest stress to the ligaments and tendons is where they attach to the bone, the fibro-osseous junction. With regard to pain, the periosteum (covering of the bone) and the ligaments are the most sensitive structures. With regard to the scale of pain sensitivity (which part of the body hurts more when injured), the periosteum ranks first, followed by the ligaments, tendons, fascia (tissue that surrounds muscle) and finally muscle. Cartilage contains no sensory nerve endings and therefore the cartilage cannot hurt because it contains no pain sensing nerves. If there is cartilage damage, the ligaments are typically the structures that hurt.

Conventional Prolotherapy involves injecting a mild irritant solution referred to as a proliferant. The most common proliferant is a solution of dextrose (sugar water) combined with procaine, a commonly used local anesthetic. Sometimes lidocaine is used instead of procaine. Most commonly, the injections are given into a joint capsule (elbow, shoulder, knee, ankle, spine, etc.) or where a lax, weakened or damaged ligament or tendon attaches to bone. Prolotherapy works by exactly the same process that the human body naturally uses to stimulate the bodys healing response. The first stage of this process is called inflammation. The Prolotherapy injection causes a local inflammation. The local inflammation triggers a healing cascade which stimulates fibroblasts, the cells from which connective tissue is developed. Activation of the fibroblasts results in the deposition of new collagen, the strong, fibrous, insoluble protein from which ligaments, tendons and cartilage are made. The new collagen regenerates cartilage in the joint and strengthens the ligaments and tendons and their attachments to the bone. New collagen shrinks as it matures. The shrinking collagen tightens the ligament or tendon that was injected. The result is improved stability and function, and resolution of pain.
