Joint Repair with Prolotherapy & PRP

Prolotherapy  & PRP is a simple, natural technique that stimulates the body to repair the painful area when the natural healing process needs a little assistance.  Prolotherapy & PRP Therapy are bio-regenerative treatments.  Both treatments manipulate the healing power of growth factors. As we know, growth factors are responsible for wound healing and tissue remodeling.  PRP is the direct introduction of growth factors via platelets into the treated area.

In most cases, commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory medications and more drastic measures like surgery and joint replacement may not help, and often hinder or even prevent the healing process. The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. A substance is injected into the affected ligaments or tendons, which leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material that ligaments and tendons are made of. New collagen shrinks as it matures. The shrinking collagen tightens the ligament that was injected and makes it stronger. Prolotherapy has the potential of being 100 percent effective at eliminating chronic pain due to ligament and tendon weakness. Prolotherapy involves the treatment of cartilage,tendons, ligaments and menisci. The ligament and tendon tissue which forms as a result of Prolotherapy is thicker and stronger than normal tissue, up to 40% stronger in some cases! Prolotherapy is a safe and effective treatment and is much less invasive than surgery. If you have aches and pains in your joints, you should explore prolotherapy as a treatment option. Dr. Waller N.D. has effectively treated 100's of patients successfully with joint strain, sprain, arthritis and meniscal injury.
