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.

A patient will often ask us about the differences between Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy, and Epidural steroid injection. Research suggests that the differences is in the patient outcome.
- Epidural steroid injection did not significantly decrease the number of patients who underwent subsequent surgery compared with a placebo or other treatments.” 1

Among sports-related injuries, post-concussion syndrome is one of the most elusive and challenging problems to treat. While many patients will recover from their concussion, just as many will not. To make matters worse, as an athlete sustains repeat concussions, the chance of recovery becomes less likely. Symptoms of post-concussion syndrome vary from patient to patient but can include headache, difficulty in tracking objects, slower reaction times, anger, lightheadedness, anxiety, depression, blurred vision, difficulty in concentration, photophobia (intolerance to bright light), and phonophobia (intolerance to loud sounds). These symptoms can range in severity from being slightly annoying to becoming an overwhelming disability.

In this article Ross Hauser, M.D. examines the medical research about Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy as Knee Osteoarthritis treatment
Knee Osteoarthritis treatment options
Researchers looked at 327 patients with Knee Osteoarthritis. More than half – 172 of them were referred to a surgeon and 76% of them went on to have total knee replacement.
Rush to judgment? “Few conservative management options were tried before referral, indicating the need to enhance pre-surgical care for patients with knee Osteoarthritis.”1
