Platelet Rich Plasma Injections for Joint Pain
Prolotherapy harnesses the body's ability to heal itself by attracting and activating the cells that lay down new connective tissue, fibroblasts, to an area of injury / weakness. It has been in use since the early 20th century. This treatment involves injecting either dextrose, whole blood, platelet rich plasma, or another fibroblast attracting substance into a joint or attachment site of a ligament or tendon. There is excellent evidence now for its' usage in many musculoskeletal disorders including knee arthritis, hip arthritis, neck pain and instability, TMJ disorder, ankle instability, shoulder instability, acute injuries to accelerate return to full activity, female incontinence, to improve female sexual satisfaction and more. A treatment series consists of up to 3 injections (however it may only take 1 to achieve the desired result) with a month between each injection. Below you will find a series of videos. Some demonstrate the procedure and some are testimonials. As I make more videos I will keep posting them here, so either check back from time to time of subscribe to my youtube channel to get notifications when I make more.
