How Prolotherapy Works
Prolotherapy is typically performed at a doctor's office, giving you comfort and convenience. RIT provides the ideal treatment for soft tissue injuries.
Your doctor will inject the affected area with orthobiologics. These are substances which induce your body's natural healing processes. There are two varieties of orthobiologic Prolotherapy: cellular (which includes platelet rich plasma (PRP) and stem cells) and comprehensive (which includes naturally occurring healing substances, like dextrose).
Prolotherapy can even help with stiffness and restoring strength. If you're interested in regenerative injection therapy, please call (724) 915-1049 or contact Dr. Emma McGowan online.
After Prolotherapy Treatment
After your injection, it's normal to see some swelling and inflammation. This is the body's natural healing process taking place, accelerated by Prolotherapy. The primary target of Prolotherapy is your joints, tendons and ligaments, which is where most chronic-pain related injuries originate.
Depending on the nature of your injury, you may require only one injection. More severe issues will require multiple injections and possibly multiple visits. Doing so will provide the entire affected area with fast, natural relief.
Your doctor will advise you on when to return to a normal level of physical activity.
