Find Pain Relief Through Tighter Ligaments and Improved Joint Stability

Dextrose Injections, also known as Prolotherapy is a cutting-edge, non-surgical treatment option for those suffering from damaged ligaments and tendons, joint pain, and arthritis. This advanced technique involves the injection of a special solution including dextrose into damaged joints and ligaments, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and promoting the regrowth of healthy tissue.

Origin of Prolotherapy
Prolotherapy was first developed by Dr. Earl Gedney around the 1930s as a means of treating musculoskeletal pain. He discovered that by injecting an irritant solution into damaged or weakened ligaments, the body’s natural healing mechanisms would be stimulated, leading to stronger and tighter connective tissues.

Beginning in the 1950s, Dr. George Hacket was one of the largest contributors to the research of dextrose injections, and is attributed to coining the term “prolotherapy.” Throughout his career, treating over 10,000 patients through prolotherapy, Dr. Hacket had perfected his treatment protocols to nearly a 90% success rate.

Over the years, prolotherapy has continued to evolve as a promising treatment for chronic joint pain, ligament laxity, and degenerative disorders of the musculoskeletal system. It has gained ample recognition among both patients and healthcare providers as a safe and effective non-surgical option for chronic joint pain management.

Several studies have been conducted on the efficacy of prolotherapy, and most of them have reported positive outcomes. In one study, patients with chronic low back pain who received prolotherapy injections experienced significant pain reduction and improved function. Another study showed that patients with knee pain due to osteoarthritis experienced reduced pain and improved mobility after prolotherapy treatment.

Prolotherapy is a time-tested treatment modality that has been shown to be effective in the management of musculoskeletal disorders. It offers a non-surgical option that is minimally invasive, safe, and has the potential to relieve pain and improve function in patients who suffer from joint pain.

Prolotherapy to Tighten Up Damaged Joints and Ligaments

Prolotherapy has been shown to be particularly effective in treating chronic pain, as well as addressing joint instability and range of motion issues. It was discovered that when injected, dextrose had the power to tighten joints and ligaments, making the affected area stronger and decreasing pain levels. This therapy has also been shown to increase the number of fibroblasts in the body, a type of cell that contributes to the formation of connective tissue, making your tissues stronger and more stable.

A Minimally Invasive Treatment

Unlike many other treatments, Prolotherapy is minimally invasive and can be administered without the need for general anesthesia.

Adding Ozone to Dextrose Injections for Increased Effectiveness

The addition of ozone to dextrose has been found to significantly enhance the effectiveness of regenerative treatments for joints, connective tissues, nerves, and ligaments. Ozone is a potent oxidizing agent that has been shown to stimulate cellular repair processes. Dextrose, on the other hand, acts as a fuel source for cells undergoing repair and regeneration, encouraging the growth of new tissue. When combined, ozone and dextrose work synergistically to stimulate healing and accelerate tissue regeneration at the site of injury. Studies have shown that ozone-dextrose injections can provide significant relief from joint pain and stiffness, improve mobility, and in some cases even help avoid surgery. Overall, this innovative treatment approach offers a safe, effective way to promote tissue regeneration and restore function to damaged joints and soft tissues.
