What is Prolotherapy? The original Regenerative Injection for Chronic 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.

What’s in a prolotherapy injection?

At my prolotherapy clinic in Tampa, FL, I use a time tested combination of dextrose (a type of sugar), which acts as an irritant solution to restart the regenerative healing process. We can dial up or dial down the amount of dextrose based on the area (joint, tendon, ligament, nerve) and our specific goals. Dextrose helps to both nourish injuries, inflammation and arthritic tissues and it also helps to strongly stimulate the regenerative process.

Why is prolotherapy so effective?

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.

How much does prolotherapy cost?

Most major areas can be treated for around $300 per treatment. We generally recommend a series of 4-6 treatments spaced out every 2-4 weeks. When you come in for your initial visit, Dr. Hanson will give you a specific number of treatments based on your physical findings.
