In recent years, Prolotherapy has been gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional medical treatments. Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that involves injecting a solution into damaged tissues to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Rehab Wellness LA is an integrative medical clinic on the cutting edge of using prolotherapy treatment to help patients manage their pain and injuries.
Prolotherapy, also known as regenerative injection therapy, is a medical procedure that involves injecting a solution of dextrose and other natural substances into damaged tissues such as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. The solution stimulates the body’s natural healing process and promotes new tissue growth. This, in turn, strengthens the weakened tissues and reduces pain.
Prolotherapy may be prescribed by your Rehab Wellness medical professional to your condition, including:
Prolotherapy can be a great option for people suffering from chronic pain and injuries that have not responded to traditional medical treatments.
Prolotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that typically takes less than an hour to perform. The patient may receive a local anesthetic to numb the area being treated. Then, the solution is injected directly into the damaged tissue using a fine needle. Patients may feel mild discomfort or pressure during the injection.
After the procedure, patients may experience some soreness, stiffness, and swelling in the treated area. This is normal and usually subsides within a few days. Most patients can return to normal activities within a day or two after the procedure.
The number of prolotherapy treatments required varies depending on the condition being treated and the patient’s response to treatment. Typically, patients receive a series of injections spaced out over several weeks or months.
Prolotherapy is a safe and effective non-surgical treatment option for many conditions that cause chronic pain and injury. Rehab Wellness LA offers prolotherapy as part of our integrative approach to healthcare, combining traditional and alternative medical treatments to help patients achieve optimal health and wellness.
