Simple Injection Therapy (Prolo)

Prolotherapy (Prolo) is our entry-level solution. It is simple, quick, painless, very safe, cost-effective and has a well documented history of success in pain management.

This technique has been practiced for a long time. The concept of creating inflammation to stimulate healing has been records as early as the Roman times when hot needles were poked into the shoulders of injured gladiators. Acupuncture might even be older and studies show it helps relieve pain in certain joints. This was improved in the 1930s and Prolo was born. Over the past 80 years, it has seen widespread use. The two main practitioners of the technique reported treating over 15,000 patients stating that the treatment was completely curative in many cases and provided some pain relief to nearly all.

Prolo means injecting a mildly irritant solution in the problematic area. This typically consists of dextrose and a numbing agent. The effect is to trigger your body’s natural healing mechanism.
