Prolotherapy is an injection therapy that triggers a temporary inflammatory response, unlike steroid injections which suppress the immune system. By recruiting inflammatory cells to a problem area, the body’s natural ability to heal is stimulated. At Living Wellness Medical Center, we’re happy to offer prolotherapy to those determined to be a great candidate. This healing therapy has many benefits, including:
- Restoration of damaged cells and tissues
- Stimulates the regrowth of connective tissue surrounding joints
- Strengthens tendon-bone attachments
- Strengthens muscles and soft tissue
The body has the innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic doctors refer to this as “the healing power of nature.” By activating the immune system, prolotherapy can help initiate the body’s ability to heal itself.
