Pain of the low back, neck, and knee joints is the leading cause of disability worldwide. While pain won’t directly kill you, it can completely destroy your quality of life and sense of purpose, robbing you of vibrant longevity. Let’s dive in to how Prolotherapy can help to reduce and even eliminate knee pain.
What is Prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is the original regenerative injection for painful conditions like back pain, knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, foot/ankle pain, elbow pain and wrist pain. It’s been in use for about 100 years and has been well studied and proven to be very effective.
How does prolotherapy help knee pain?
Prolotherapy works with the built in healing powers your body was born with. The goal of prolotherapy is to restart the healing process around injured and damaged joints and tissues. This kicks off a healing cascade, where cells signal to surrounding cells to activate stem cells and heal up. This process doesn’t happen over night but over time. So the prolotherapy process is repeated as many times as necessary. In 80% of patients have a 50% or more drop in their pain at Dr. Hanson’s prolotherapy clinic in Tampa, FL.
