Prolotherapy in Michigan

Prolotherapy, also known as proliferative therapy, can also be referred to as non-surgical ligament and tendon reconstruction and regenerative joint injection. It’s certainly a mouthful to say, but its effects are amazing. This trusted orthopedic procedure stimulates the body’s healing process to repair and strengthen joints and connective tissues (tendons) that may be injured and cause pain.

When ligaments or tendons stretch and tear, their associated joints become destabilized, resulting in pain. Prolotherapy in Michigan gets to the root cause of this instability, repairing the weakened sites and producing new collagen tissue. The result? Permanent stabilization of the joint and a resolution of pain.

Traditional approaches usually include invasive surgery, which comes with long recovery times as well as medication that can become addictive. Surgery is also very risky and pain relievers only work temporarily.

How Does Prolotherapy in Michigan Work?

Prolotherapy essentially creates new tissues in areas that have been weakened. It achieves this through the stimulation of the body’s own natural healing mechanisms. Doctors at The Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine will direct an injection to the injury site, which prompts the body to repair itself. In turn, patients will experience a mild inflammation as the fibers of the new ligaments and tendons start working. Several treatments are needed to encourage a buildup of tissues that work to restore the area’s original strength.

What to Expect

The injection itself comprises natural substances that stimulate the healing response, along with local anesthetic agents that relieve pain at the injection site. Most patients don’t feel pain, and any pain they do feel is a result of the injection, not the treatment. Discomfort will also depend on the structure or joint that is being treated, the solution being used, and how skilled the administering physician is.

Patients may experience mild swelling and stiffness, which can be relieved with simple over the counter pain relievers. We recommended not using anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin and ibuprofen, because they suppress the inflammatory healing process.
