T5 - Prolotherapy

What is Prolotherapy? Prolotherapy involves injecting irritants (esp. distilled water) into an injured or inflamed joint to stimulate healing. Prolotherapy is a procedure where a natural irritant is injected into the soft tissue of an injured joint. The irritant kick-starts the body's healing response. This treatment does not involve surgery.

Which parts of the body can prolotherapy be done on?
This treatment can be used to treat the spine including lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine up to the level of C2.

We can also treat with recurrent ankle sprains and shoulder instability or rotator cuff tendinopathy.

There are too many areas of the body to list here and it is worth a consultation to further discuss your options.
