What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy treatment, the purposeful stimulation of the body’s innate capacity to heal wounds and repair injured tissues, dates back 2,500 years. In this treatment, dry needling and injection of a variety of solutions (hypertonic dextrose, hormones, inﬂammatory agents) stimulate the area that needs repair to start the healing cascade.
