What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is a regenerative injection treatment used to treat joint pain and ligament laxity by repairing damaged or weakened ligaments and tendons. A proliferative agent is injected into the joint (intra-articularly) or around the injured / affected area to promote healing and growth of normal cells and tissues. These injections strengthen and regenerate the structures to improve function and range of motion to reduce pain.
