What Is Prolotherapy And PRP?

Prolotherapy is an injection technique that is used for tightening ligaments and tendons. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the treatment causes the proliferation (growth, formation) of new ligament or tendon tissue in areas where it has become weak. When injured, ligaments or tendons don’t always heal to their original strength due to limited blood supply where they attach to the bone. The attachments have many small nerve endings that may cause pain when injured.

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, uses the patient’s own plasma to stimulate growth in tendons, ligaments, and other tissues by encouraging growth factors where blood supply is low. PRP started as a form of prolotherapy for professional athletes around the world and is now being harnessed to treat several injuries related to the wear and tear of connective tissue.
