Prolotherapy ("Proliferative Injection Therapy") involves injecting an otherwise non-pharmacological and non-active irritant solution into the body, generally in the region of tendons or ligaments for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue and alleviating musculoskeletal pain.
Prolotherapy is often used as an alternative to invasive arthroscopic surgery.
Doctors and surgeons have given anecdotal accounts of successful treatment for knee injuries, shoulder separation, and typical injuries to golfers (epicondylitis, shoulder strain, lower back strain and injury, hip and knee injury).
The areas that are most likely to benefit from prolotherapy treatment:
Sacroiliac Joint in the low back
