Management of Pain with Prolotherapy If you love sport or any other outdoor physical activities i.e. playing golf, hiking, riding etc. You may find yourself some day that chronic musculoskeletal pain can sometime prohibit you from your favorite lifestyle. Expert in Prolotherapy pain management find out that nearly 80 percent of all painful joint condition is causing by laxity of ligaments surrounding joint causing joint unstable and excessive stretching to surrounding connective tissue, tendon and nerve along the ligament. Prolotherapy utilize special technique of injection with particular substance that promote tissue healing, strengthens weakened connective tissue and ligaments thus stabilize the joint and alleviating musculoskeletal pain. In contrast to steroid injection which are usually given to condition such as golfer elbow or shoulder joint pain. Prolotherapy use natural and safe alternative such as Dextrose solution, Cytoplasmic Peptide – the natural substance, or Platelet Rich Plasma as the solution to increase strengthening over the laxity ligament. Platelet rich plasma contain a patient's own blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets, after activation contains several growth factors to generate tissue repair. Ligaments do have nerve supply and can hurt. However, cartilage along the joint do not have nerve supply and never get hurt. Painful in early arthritis is not causing by damage in the cartilage but rather laxity of ligament and instability that cause pain. Only until you lost all cartilage lining you will feel bone on bone gliding during joint motion and can hurt which occur only late stage conditions and may need surgery – this account for approximately 10-20 percent of all arthritic pain patients while the rest can be safely and effectively treated with Prolotherapy. In Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy treatment, the experience and expertise of your doctor is important. Typically, the majority of patients we see in our office who suffer from chronic neck pain with or without nerve root compression, knee osteoarthritis, ankle osteoarthritis, groin pain, lower back pain. All this we found a complexity mechanism during physical examination which include joint instability, inflammation, loose ligaments which can be treated successfully with Prolotherapy with or without Platelet Rich Plasma.
