Prolotherapy is a non-surgical reconstruction of the tendons, and ligaments. Prolotherapy is a permanent treatment for chronic pain because it rebuilds ligament tissue in weak areas. So what exactly is prolotherapy, and how does it work?
Prolotherapy is an injection that contains a sugar-based solution that contains Lidocaine (anesthetic). The injection is inserted into the ligament, or tendon at the bone attachment. These injections stimulate blood flow, and nutrient supply to repair the weak areas.
