Anytime a joint sustains injury, the natural body response is to release dextrose to initiate the healing system in the affected area. Dextrose triggers an increase in the number of inflammatory cells that help to speed and boost healing. This is why we start with dextrose. Dextrose is also simple, effective and economical. One of these is called Sarapin, which is an alkaline extract obtained from the pitcher plant. Sarapin aids in the relief of pain associated with nerve sensitivity. Sarapin is a natural ingredient and normally increases the healing effects of Prolotherapy injections. Not to mention, Sarapin has no known side effects, so it is considered a safe pain reliever.
In addition, our basic Prolotherapy solution could include a small quantity of either lidocaine or procaine. We are careful to only use a small amount as we do not want to cause any reduction to the wound healing and joint repair processes. Both of these ingredients helps relieve pain in the affected area, as well as eases any discomfort experienced from the treatment procedure. Normally, patients report a reduction in pain immediately following treatment.
In cases where the patient requires a much stronger healing stimulation reaction, other natural ingredients may be added to our dextrose-based solutions. This might include adding certain minerals, like manganese or zinc. Another option that could be used is including fatty acids in the dextrose-based solution. Fatty acids help increase the longevity of the inflammatory response to further speed up healing and the repair of the injured joint.
Additionally, based upon a patient’s specific medical diagnosis, the dextrose-based solution may include adding specific hormones, such as testosterone or human growth hormone. Hormones are sometimes beneficial for helping enhance localized healing of damaged joint tissues.
Scientific research studies of Prolotherapy injections, with different solutions have shown an improved inflammatory healing reaction, with an increase in capillary and fibroblastic proliferation, as well as enhanced tissue growth stimulation. Further research conducted on ligaments, tendons, and joints treated with Prolotherapy injections have resulted in an increase in mass, thickness, and strength.
Prolotherapy treatments can be given to any of the articular ligaments, tendons, and joints within the body, which have been injured, including:
- Sacroiliac Joints
- Peripheral Joints
- Temporomandibular Joints
- Low Back
