Traditional medical models often do not offer clear-cut treatment options or outcomes for many types of musculoskeletal pain or sports injuries. Prolotherapy is a method of regenerative injection treatment which stimulates musculoskeletal repair and healing, reducing or eliminating pain, with low medical risk and high success rate. Types of prolotherapy include original dextrose, platelet rich plasma (PRP) and biocellular (stem cell) prolotherapy. The choice of which to use depends on the specific problem and severity. An integrative approach, or looking at the history of injury and how it has affected the system as a whole, is important in order to offer the best options to the patient in pain.
