What is Prolotherapy ?

Prolotherapy, short for “proliferative therapy,” is a complementary and alternative medical treatment that involves the injection of a solution into ligaments, tendons, or joint spaces with the aim of stimulating tissue repair, reducing pain, and improving musculoskeletal function. The solution typically contains a local anesthetic and an irritant substance, such as dextrose (a type of sugar), saline, or other natural substances. The irritant is believed to provoke a mild inflammatory response, encouraging the body’s natural healing processes.

It’s essential to note that prolotherapy is considered an alternative or complementary therapy and is not universally accepted by all medical professionals. The scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness is limited, and the treatment approach can vary among practitioners.


  • Ligament and Tendon Injuries
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic Low Back Pain
  • Joint Instability
  • Sports Injuries
  • Neck Pain
  • Hip Labral Tears

Contra Indications

Injections are generally avoided in patients who have a systemic illness or skin infection over the puncture site, bleeding problems or coagulopathy, or an allergy to local anaesthetics or any of the drugs that will be administered.


The risks associated with prolotherapy are minor, especially compared to the potential risks of surgery and other procedures. These are a few of the potential side effects a patient can experience after prolotherapy:

  • Swelling and inflammation around the injection site
  • Pain and stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Allergic reaction to the injected solution
  • Nerve related issues

Post Procedure

Following a prolotherapy session, patients typically enter a post-procedure phase marked by a period of healing and potential symptom improvement. Commonly used to address ligament and tendon injuries, osteoarthritis, and chronic pain conditions, prolotherapy aims to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. In the hours or days following the procedure, patients may experience some localized discomfort or swelling at the injection sites.
