Much of the time the pain comes from..

  • Ligaments and Tendons
  • Ligaments attach bone to bone, stabilizing the joint
  • Tendons attach muscle to bone, moving the joint
  • Like steel cables they confer strength, but when they’re damaged or over-stretched (lax) the nerves in them send lots of pain signals!

What’s normally done for pain?

  • Ice
  • Anti-inflammatory medicine (NSAID): Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Aspirin, Celecoxib, Diclofenac, Indomethacin, etc.
  • Immobilization

A Better Solution: Prolotherapy & Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

  • How it works
    1. Injection of a natural proliferant (dextrose) + anesthetic or your own platelets (PRP) + anesthetic. PRP is usually used with more severe injuries.
    2. This creates a local inflammatory reaction, drawing blood to the area especially white blood cells and platelets which secrete growth factors
    3. Growth factors promote collagen deposition, regeneration and growth = healing the damaged tissue
  • Expected treatment outcomes
    1. Decrease or eliminate Pain
    2. Improve ability to function in your activities of daily living
    3. Increase muscle strength where weakness was present due to ligament or tendon injury
    4. Decrease or eliminate stiffness in joints due to muscle spasm and arthritis
    5. Regenerate damaged, lax, torn ligaments and tendons
