Curing Pain with Prolotherapy
also known as Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT), is
an effective technique for treating many types of
joint or musculoskeletal pain. Prolotherapy is a
series of injections in and around the joint structure
that stimulate the body’s own mechanism to grow and
strengthen joint tissues.
The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. A substance is injected into the affected ligaments or tendons, which leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material that ligaments and tendons are made of. New collagen shrinks as it matures, thereby tightening the ligament that was injected and makes it up to 40% stronger than normal tissue! Prolotherapy can completely rehabilitate areas of pain and dysfunction and has an 80-85% success rate.
Naturopathic Medicine is a school of medical philosophy and practice that seeks to improve health and treat disease chiefly by assisting the body’s innate capacity to recover from illness and injury.
