Calgary Prolotherapy Care

Your Choice for Calgary Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is also known as “proliferation therapy,” “regenerative injection therapy,” or “proliferative injection therapy.”

Prolotherapy involves injecting a glucose (dextrose sugar) solution into the body, generally in the region of tendons or ligaments for the purpose of strengthening weakened connective tissue and alleviating musculoskeletal pain.

Repetitive strain is thought to gradually stretch out tendons and ligaments, which over time leads to pain and injury. Prolotherapy is thought to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to repair these lax tendons or ligaments. Once strengthened, the weak areas would no longer send pain signals

Can an injection eliminate your pain?

For decades, injections of cortisone were used by medical doctors to help reduce pain.  But what if the pain returns?  How often can a person be injected with a steroid to reduce pain?  What if cortisone can’t be done or no longer works? Is surgery necessary? Maybe you have already talked to a surgeon, and they told you surgery wouldn’t help. So, what then? More medication? You may have been warned that more medication could be harmful, so they better not be too strong or too much! We understand your frustration.

At National Spine Care, patients are asking us about non-surgical and drug-free alternatives to help reduce their pain. In response, we are pleased our clinical staff includes Sports and Exercise Medicine Physicians to consult on all available non-surgical treatment options.
