Prolotherapy is the injection of any substance that promotes growth of normal cells, tissues, or organs.
Yes, inflammation is hard to deal with, but it does serve a vital purpose in the body’s attempt to heal. When an injury doesn’t fully heal, there is chronic damage without inflammation. That’s because inflammation is your body’s natural way of healing an injury. With the process of prolotherapy, it essentially tricks your body into repeating a new wave of healing. By injecting dextrose, or any other irritating substance (often mixed with lidocaine and sodium morrhuate) into an injured appendage, the body starts to stimulate a healing response.
But when should you use this method? How serious should your injury be? Common injuries treated with prolotherapy include chronic tendinosis, such as tennis elbow, and chronic low back pain.
