Mercer-Bucks Orthobiologic Institute
The goal of Prolotherapy is to strengthen joints, ligaments and tendons weakened by trauma or arthritis. Prolotherapy stimulates your own body’s healing mechanism to restore normal function into the damaged area. Prolotherapy uses a dextrose (sugar water) solution, which the physician injects into the ligament or tendon using an ultrasound guided technique. These injections cause inflammation in these weakened areas which increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients to this area allowing for tissue growth and the strengthening of the ligaments and tendons.
