Are you tired of your pain just being “managed”? Is your pain keeping you from doing the things you want to do?
If you answered yes to any of these questions you may want to consider prolotherapy.
Here at Command we always strive to treat the root cause of any issue, especially pain. We aim to relieve pain, not just manage it. Prolotherapy is a simple, safe injection that is performed in joints, tendons and ligaments. The “active” ingredient in these injections is dextrose (sugar). The dextrose acts as a mild irritant where it is injected, which initiates a healing repose to help the body fix itself! We have had patients who were told they needed to put off a joint replacement with steroid or synvisc injections until they were old enough due to the severity of their arthritis.
In as little as 2 weeks the patients had a 75-80% reduction in pain and months later it is continuing to improve!
Prolotherapy is in the category of regenerative injections like platelet rich plasma (PRP) or stem cell joint injections. Both therapies have helped a lot of patients and there are scenarios where those injections may be more beneficial than prolotherapy. However, prolotherapy is much more cost effective and can be used first-line. If there is no or little benefit, then the more expensive treatments like PRP or stem cells can be tried. Members get a significant discount but you do not need to be a member of Command Family Medicine to take advantage. Our pricing is very straightforward:
