How does Prolotherapy work?
Dextrose (sugar) is injected directly into the damaged tendon, joint, or ligament to stimulate tissue repair. The body’s response is to initiate localized inflammation to this area, which jumpstarts the body’s natural healing powers.
Depending on your condition, health history, and goals, we may recommend combining Prolotherapy treatments with physical therapy and increased activity, a healthy diet, and adequate sleep to help the body heal and restore.
How will I know if Prolotherapy is right for me?
Prolotherapy must be administered by a trained and certified professional. At Dr. Schlee Naturopathic Clinic, we will assess you and only recommend this procedure if we think it may help you.
No condition is the same, and the results of this therapy are different for each person. After the first few treatments, we can determine whether there is progressive improvements in pain and symptoms. If the treatments are effective, your pain may be resolved and the function of the damaged area restored.
