What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is a regenerative injection therapy, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response in areas of injured tendons and ligaments. By injecting injured ligaments and/or tendons with a mild irritant (dextrose and procaine), a mild inflammatory response is triggered to give the body a second chance at healing.

This controlled inflammation creates stronger and healthy tendons and/or ligaments. When function in a joint is restored, pain is decreased and mobility is returned.

Is Prolotherapy for Me?

Prolotherapy may be an option for you if you suffer from chronic pain, unresolved joint pain, recurrent injuries, muscle spasms, joint instability and decreased mobility. Dr. Kate Kokoski will gather a thorough history, palpate your joint structure and complete the necessary orthopedic tests.
