Dextrose Prolotherapy and PRP Prolotherapy for Joint Pain in San Diego

Prolotherapy is a cutting edge regenerative injection treatment used to repair injured ligaments, tendons and joints for people suffering from pain, joint instability and osteoarthritis. Ligaments and tendons generally have a poor blood supply and consequently, incomplete healing is common after an injury. Coupled with frequent use of NSAIDs, ice and cortisone, it is easy to see why chronic pain is so common.

Prolotherapy is considered a powerful alternative to surgery and a healthier option to pain medications and anti-inflammatory injections such as cortisone or other steroidal injections. The revolutionary treatment is minimally invasive and is affordable to boot, allowing you to return to your active lifestyle quickly and safely.

Dextrose Prolotherapy involves injecting dextrose with an anesthetic into a damaged area, usually a ligament, tendon or joint. This solution causes a local, mild irritation initiating an inflammatory response that “turns on” the body’s powerful healing process. This procedure stimulates the growth of new ligament, tendon and cartilage in the damaged area.

The ligaments and tendons produced after prolotherapy appear much the same as normal tissues, except they are thicker and stronger due to the new and ongoing creation of tissue. This new stronger and healthier tissue provides you with a more stable joint, a correction from past pain and discomfort.

    I went in to Spark Health to get PRP Prolotherapy done on my right shoulder. I have had constant pain and discomfort in my shoulder from years of martial arts and several injury’s to that joint. A friend recommended the clinic to me, so I came in town to see Dr. Soheily the PRP Prolotherapy doctor at Spark. I was not sure what to expect, but from the minute I walked in the staff was really friendly and the clinic was beautiful. During my visit I felt that the doctor really listened to me and he spend time learning my body. It has been 3 weeks sense my treatment and my shoulder feels significantly better. It feels more stable and the constant pain is not there. My overall experience was great and I appreciate the way they took care of me.

    I’ve now had two treatments on my SI joint and yes, night and day difference in pain relief that I had been suffering for for 2 + years. Had tried all, prolotherapy has been absolutely wonderful!
