Prolotherapy Treatment Scottsdale
What Is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is short for “proliferative therapy”, basically meaning that we are trying to stimulate the body’s own healing mechanisms in order to grow and heal in areas where there has been an injury. This therapy has been proven quite useful for sprains and strains as well as ligament and tendon tears to name a few.
How Is It Done?
Using an injectable solution, your doctor will locate the point of injury. The solution is then injected with the purpose of causing a “micro bleed” and signaling to your body that this is an area that needs extra special attention in order to heal. This “reflex” then allows your body to flood the area with healing factors. Results can be seen in as little to one treatment but can take up to 6 or more depending on the severity of injury.
