Living Pain-Free is Possible!
Imagine what you would do if you had pain-free mobility again.
Would you get back to your active life? Perform at your peak again? Play with your kids more? Walk with your partner without pain?
Does an injury stop you from doing the activities you love? Is the only option left a lifetime of medications or surgery? Is your pain keeping you up at night?
You can be pain-free without medications or surgery.
If you are ready to be pain-free, and live your best life, then you are in the right place.
Our clinic uses numerous therapies to reduce pain and restore strength and mobility, including cutting-edge injection therapies like Prolotherapy that speed healing. Whether you were involved in a motor vehicle accident, a sports injury, arthritis, or have chronic pain, we can help.
Prolotherapy is a non-surgical injection technique used for the permanent repair of injured tendons, ligaments, and joints. “Prolo” is short for proliferation, because the therapy stimulates the bodies own growth and formation of new cells and tissue to help repair weakened and damaged structures in the body.
Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for most types of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. For many patients who have been told their only options are surgery or life long use of pain medications, prolotherapy can be be a viable, drug-free, non-surgical option to regain function and eliminate pain.
Musculoskeletal pain often originates from areas of structural weakness, especially at sites where tendons and ligaments attach to bone. Tendons and ligaments stabilize joints, and when they are torn or stretched, the structures they are surrounding can become painful. This pain can last years, because once injured these structures commonly do not heal back to their original strength and stability. This creates a chronic pain generator that can worsen over time. In prolotherapy, the whole goal is to stimulate the bodies own repair of injured tendons and ligaments, resulting in decreased pain and disability.
How Does Prolotherapy Work?
The basic mechanism of prolotherapy is simple. A solution is injected into an injured area, which leads to local inflammation and triggers a healing cascade. This results in the deposition of new collagen, the material that forms ligaments and tendons. As this new collagen matures, it shrinks, tightening and strengthening the areas where it was injected.

ProloTherapy Resources and Research
2016 Systematic Review consisting of fourteen RCTs, 1 case-control study, and 18 case series studies.
Here is the conclusion of the review: “Use of dextrose prolotherapy is supported for treatment of tendinopathies, knee and finger joint OA, and spinal/pelvic pain due to ligament dysfunction.”
