Prolotherapy & PRP
Your body knows how to heal an injury to it, if it is given the right signals. When there is enough of an injury to get bleeding or tissue destruction certain chemicals are released and the body is triggered to respond. It sends in certain cells to cleanup the mess and others to lay down new collagen.
When you have a strain, light sprain or overuse of a tendon, ligament or joint there is no blood, no dead tissue and no recognition by the body of an injury. Thus, there is no or very little healing.
Prolotherapy is the way we can trigger the body’s healing response. PRP or platelet rich plasma can supercharge the healing process by releasing a multitude of growth factors into the area of the injury. To make sure the treatment is done to the right tissue the injections are guided to the correct spot using ultrasound guidance.
