Prolotherapy is an injection technique that stimulates growth of cells and tissue that stabilize and strengthen weakened joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.


The injected solution intentionally causes controlled irritation in the injected tissue. This irritation is an inflammatory response, which increases the blood supply and thereby stimulates the tissue to heal and regrow new tissue.

Researchers in Korea found that rabbits with osteoarthritis of the knees treated with intra-articular PRP injection showed cartilage regeneration in all severities of rabbit knee osteoarthritis. The cartilage regenerative power of PRP injection in moderate knee osteoarthritis was greater than that in mild or very mild osteoarthritis. In other words the worse degeneration of cartilage the better PRP worked. 1
