Certified Prolotherapy Treatment in Vancouver WA
What is Prolotherapy Treatment?
Prolotherapy is a medical treatment that involves injecting a solution, usually a sugar-based mixture, into joints, tendons, or ligaments to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. The goal of prolotherapy is to promote the growth of new, healthy tissue and strengthen weakened or damaged tissue.
Also known as regenerative injection therapy or proliferation therapy. It is commonly used to treat chronic pain conditions like osteoarthritis, tendonitis, and back pain. The injection solution used in prolotherapy contains a local anesthetic and a proliferate, which is a substance that stimulates the growth of new tissue. The proliferate can be a dextrose solution, saline, or a combination of both.
Prolotherapy works by triggering the body’s natural healing response, which leads to the formation of new collagen and other connective tissue in the treated area. Over time, this new tissue can help to stabilize and strengthen the affected joint, tendon, or ligament, to reduce pain and improve function.
