What is Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy is an alternative treatment method characterized by the injection of various proliferating solutions (high-density sugar solutions) to strengthen damaged joints and ligaments.

How Does Prolotherapy Work?

As a result of needle trauma applied in prolotherapy, a healing mechanism begins at the injection site. The high-density sugar solutions applied show irritant properties and cause a more pronounced healing response in the tissue. In fact, the mechanism of action is based on the principle of re-repairing the damaged tissue by activating the body's own healing mechanism.
