Keep your Joints Healthy and Stable with Prolotherapy
Prolotherapy is a nonsurgical procedure that stimulates and enhances the body’s healing process to strengthen and repair injured joints and connective tissue. Simply put, Protherapy is a treatment used to treat connective tissue injuries like tendons, ligaments that have not healed on their own. When these connective tissues are stretched or torn, it can destabilize the joint causing pain, laxity and improper moments of the joint. Due to the fact that these tendons and ligaments have a poor blood supply, it can take a prolonged period of time for them to heal, if they heal at all. Prolotherapy uses natural, safe, and effective substances to accelerate the body’s own healing process to repair these connective tissues to strength and stabilize the body’s joints and movements.

The most common ingredient injected for prolotherapy is dextrose at a concentration of 12.5% – 25%. Dextrose is a natural sugar that causes an inflammatory response to happen locally, increasing the circulation and bringing with it oxygen and other nutrients to heal the damaged tissues. While each provider will use formulations that they find effective, here at Denver Acupuncture & Sports Medicine we use a combination of Dextrose, B12 (hydroxocobolamin), Lidocaine (to ease the patient’s discomfit), and homeopathic formulations specific to the area we are injecting. These solutions will be different for joints, tendons, ligaments or herniated / bulging discs. By using natural substances that the body can recognize, it aids the body in healing and reduces the chance of a patient reacting to the injection.
