Prolotherapy

A safe and effective way to treat chronic soft tissue injuries and ligamentous strain, Prolotherapy involves injecting 5-25% glucose (sugar water), saline (salt water) and lignocaine (anaesthetic) around joints to promote wound healing.

 

Aiding in the restoration process, Prolotherapy restores strength and tension to the ligaments. It can also be used to prevent further injury and deformity to soft tissue ligaments that are put under repetitive stress and strain from sporting activities or poor foot mechanics. Prolotherapy can also assist in pain management for older patients with long term, poor foot mechanics.

Your podiatrist will only recommend Prolotherapy after a thorough Biomechanical Assessment has been performed.
