What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a procedure where a natural irritant is injected into the soft tissue of an injured joint. Supporters believe that it may provide significant relief for chronic ligament and join pain. It stimulates the body’s own natural healing processes and can help defer or avoid the need for joint surgery.
Not all people are suitable for the procedure. People with chronic conditions, for example, may not see any effects from the prolotherapy so a doctor may suggest other alternatives.
What is Glucose Injection Treatments?
Glucose injection treatments is the substance used for prolotherapy injection. Glucose helps to trigger the body’s healing response and reduce local nerve sensitization.
Once activated, the body will start to strengthen and repair damaged ligaments in the joint. The strengthening of the ligaments, over time, helps to stabilize the joint. Once the joint is better supported, the pain can disappear.
How does Prolotherapy – Glucose Injection Treatment works?
The technique of prolotherapy involves an injection and aimed at tender areas on joints and ligaments. In the first instance, the patient should feel almost instant (temporary) relief of their pain after the injection, due to the numbing effect of the local anesthetic. This is a good sign and helps confirm that the injection is targeting the source of the pain. The patient may then experience 3-5 days of a moderate increase in local tenderness, due to the healing inflammation that the injections are designed to stimulate. Once any local flare settles, the beneficial effect of the treatment can become obvious with decreased pain and tenderness. Ice packs and ant-inflammatory medications are best avoided from 3 days before a treatment to 7 days afterwards.
Prolotherapy can be helpful in a large range of conditions, including:
|TMJ (jaw joint) pain||Thoracic Back Pain|
|Neck Pain and Headache||Low Back Pain|
Benefits of Prolotherapy Treatments
Our specialist support the use of prolotherapy believe that the strengthened joints will mean the pain is reduced. Also, the improved strength of the joint will help with stability and improve overall movement and function of the back and joints.
Prolotherapy is an all-natural, permanent treatment, as it relies on the body repairing itself to reduce pain.
In contrast, pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications only provide temporary relief. Similarly, surgical options do not always work to stabilize a joint fully.
