New England Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy has the potential of being 100 percent effective at eliminating pain and sports injuries that are a result of ligament and/or tendon weakness.
Prolotherapy is a medical procedure that many chronic and acute pain patients, as well as athletes with sports injuries, are turning to because it is used as an alternative to surgery, arthroscopy, cortisone shots, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, and/or chronic use of narcotic pain medications.
Prolotherapy stimulates the body to repair the painful injured area(s) when the bodyís natural healing process is not able to do the job on its own.
In most cases, commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory medications and more drastic measures like surgery, joint replacements, cortisone shots, and other therapies may not help, and often hinder or even prevent the healing process.
The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. What most people are surprised to find out is that the body heals by inflammation. In other words, we need inflammation to heal our bodies. Prolotherapy works because it actually stimulates an inflammatory reaction in the body.

We inject Prolotherapy solutions into the affected ligaments, tendons, and/or joints, which leads to local inflammation in the injected area. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material of whichligaments and tendons are comprised. New collagen shrinks as it matures, tightening the ligament that was injected and makingit stronger.

Prolotherapy success rates have been clinically shown to be very high, with virtually no limitations or side-effects. Contact us today to see if you are a good candidate for Prolotherapy.
