How Prolotherapy Works?
Prolotherapy is really very simple. A precise injection is used to introduce a mild irritant directly onto the injured ligament or tendon causing a mild controlled injury. Because we all know that the body heals by inflammation, we all need inflammation to heal our bodies and the mild irritant causes the body to react to the injected irritant which begins the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to lay down new collagen which is the same material ligaments and tendons are made of. And the new collagen matures it shrinks thus tightening the weakened structure. Additional treatments repeat this vital process allowing for a natural build up of tissue to restore the original strength to the area. tissue on the weakened area.
