A reasonable and conservative approach to knee tendonitis/tendonosis, sprain-strains, instability, diagnosis of meniscal tear, patellofemoral pain syndrome including chrondromalacia patellae, degenerative joint disease, and osteoarthritis pain.
Prolotherapy is a method of injection treatment designed to stimulate healing. Many musculoskeletal injuries and pain syndromes lend themselves
to prolotherapy treatment including low back and neck pain, chronic sprains and/or strains, whiplash injuries, tennis and golfer’s elbow, knee, ankle,
shoulder or other joint pain, chronic tendonitis/tendonosis, and musculoskeletal pain related to osteoarthritis. Prolotherapy works by raising growth factor levels or effectiveness to promote tissue repair or growth. It can be used years after the initial pain or problem began, as long as the patient is healthy.
This month’s article focuses on the use of prolotherapy for knee pain and injuries, including ligament and meniscal injuries, tendonitis and tendonosis, patellofemoral syndrome, and osteoarthritis pain including degenerative joint disease.
