Prolotherapy is a form of injection therapy designed to rehabilitate and stimulate healing in damaged tendons, ligaments, and other forms of connective tissue for pain management. Prolotherapy serves to promote healing, decrease pain, and increase function. Prolotherapy is often performed as a series of injections spaced out over weeks to months.
Prolotherapy can be performed on multiple areas at the same time, depending on the individual needs of the patient. Prolotherapy is non-toxic and most patients tolerate the injections quite well. Prolotherapy can be performed on both new and old injuries.
Common reasons for seeking prolotherapy include:
PRP is the next generation of regenerative injection therapy. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This procedure is similar to prolotherapy in that it is a form of generative injection therapy, however PRP is considered more potent and patients often see faster results. The procedure involves a simple blood draw after which the growth factors from the blood are extracted and injected into the damaged or painful areas. Patients typically experience less tenderness after the treatments and PRP injections often dramatically speed recovery times and may require fewer treatments. PRP can be used for the same conditions as prolotherapy,
Trigger point injections are specialized injections into specific areas of the muscle that are painful and generally tight. These focused areas of muscle spasm are associated with headaches, neck and back pain and often times fibromyalgia. Here at Pure Vitality Rejuvenation Center we have a wide range of natural substances that will help the muscle relax and heal leading to increased blood flow to the area, less spasm and less pain.
