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.

After an examination, often we will ask a patient, why did they agree to the arthroscopy. The answer is usually,“I don’t know.” In our office we see many people who agree to procedures, surgeries, or medications without really knowing the reasons for them or achieving the results they desired.
Here is a case of a patient. We will look at a patients’ actual arthroscopy reports with my opinion regarding what they need to look for and questions they need to find out.

In this article Richard Gracer, MD explains Prolotherapy sciatica treatment.
While disc problems cause back pain and are often responsible for sciatica (leg pain), ligaments that are strained or lax are the most common cause.
When you bend over the sacroiliac joints (SIJ) must loosen and release the pelvis to allow for the necessary movement. The only structures that hold these bones together are very strong ligaments. If one twists to pick something off the floor while they are bent forward, the SIJ can get caught at an awkward angle, causing severe and immediate pain and muscle spasm.

In this article, Marc Darrow, MD explains Prolotherapy, Platelet rich Plasma Therapy, and Stem Cell Therapy uses for Sacroiliac joint pain treatment
One of the most common causes of low back pain that we see in patients in our office is the pain caused by the sacroiliac joint (SI).
A typical patient will come in after visiting a physician who prescribed NSAIDS, pain medications, or provided a cortisone injection. They may have also visited a chiropractor, a physical therapist,and a massage therapist. All obviously with limited results.

Pain is often misunderstood and mismanaged in traditional medical settings.
While many of us hurt or have hurt to various degrees during our lifetime, there is no traditional test to “quantify” our pain, nor does the series of happy and sad faces to describe our pain level aid in finding adequate relief from our symptoms.
What we have lost in medicine is our ability to examine the patient, correlate the examination with the patient’s symptoms, and lastly consider the diagnostic tests. Instead, we as patients enter the system of pain treatment, done almost as a mass production protocol involving first a trial of anti-inflammatory medication and then physical therapy. If these “conservative” measures fail to provide relief, it’s off to see the surgeon, where the decision is made to have either surgery or pain management.
