What is prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is a natural, non-surgical treatment with the goal of aiding the body’s healing process, specifically injured tendons and ligaments. By inflaming the targeted area, the prolotherapy solution works to stimulate the body’s creation of new, healthy cells, providing injured tendons and ligaments with greater support.

Dr. Goddard and his highly skilled team perform prolotherapy under local anesthesia, granting patients with a more comfortable treatment experience.

How many prolotherapy treatment sessions will I need?

Depending on the severity of your injury as well as the sclerosing agent used during treatment will ultimately determine how many prolotherapy sessions you may need. Each person will experience a distinctive response to prolotherapy.

Is prolotherapy safe?

Prolotherapy has been deemed a much safer remedy to enhancing the body’s healing process for an injury as opposed to other surgical methods. Millions of prolotherapy treatments have been performed on people who have experienced an injury or who experience chronic discomfort.

How much downtime will I need to take?

Those who receive prolotherapy may not need to set aside downtime following their procedure. Some patients may experience mild soreness following their treatment. To observe effectiveness, all patients will schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Goddard and his team around six weeks following their treatment.  

Who is a good candidate for prolotherapy?

Nearly anyone who has experienced an injured tendon or ligament may receive prolotherapy. Dr. Goddard and his team of experts can help you determine if prolotherapy may be right for you during your consultation.
