85% of those who undergo prolotherapy get at least a 50% reduction in pain and many get complete relief..

Prolotherapy is very effective for the treatment of chronic pain due to sprains, joint instability and degenerative joint disease and is an aid to the speedy recovery of acute injuries..

Injections are given each week for three to 5 weeks…

Anyone who has pinpoint tenderness, joint pain, back pain, arthritis or joint instability is a good candidate…

Prolotherapy helps to produce fibroblasts that fill in these areas to smoothen out the cartilage – in the same way you would put asphalt in the road to make your ride smoother. This helps to relieve the pain of arthritis significantly…

If your x-ray shows that you do not have an impingement of the tendon or rotator cuff by a spur of the acromioclavicular joint, then prolotherapy is effective. I have been able to heal a number of pure rotator cuff tears..
