Eliz Fizik Tedavi ve Rehabilitasyon




Prolotherapy is a complementary medical treatment for muscle and joint pain and injuries. With prolotherapy, a mixture of liquids is injected into damaged or dysfunctional joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons to allow these tissues to rebuild and repair themselves. The injected liquid creates a small, controlled irritation in the area where it is injected, causing the cells that produce healing substances to divide and proliferate. The injected fluid is called proliferating fluid. The injection of proliferating fluid initiates the body’s healing response.

Prolotherapy is completed in a total of 30 minutes or less, including pre-procedure preparation. Careful injections are made in the designated areas. Immediately after the treatment, the patient rests for 10-15 minutes by applying ice packs to the injected areas. After ice application, the patient can return home.

Prolotherapy involves injections of aqueous solutions to relieve pain in the affected joints. These injections typically contain natural substances such as dextrose, saline, in addition to a local anaesthetic such as lidocaine. This treatment is different from platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and steroid injections, which require stem cells from the person being treated. However, some experts consider PRP injections to be a subtype of prolotherapy. In prolotherapy, dextrose solution is usually preferred. Dextrose is a potentially irritating solution and triggers the body’s healing response. This activates repair factors in the body. This activity begins to strengthen and repair the damaged ligaments in the joint. The strengthening of the ligaments helps to stabilize the joint over time.

Which diseases are treated with Prolotherapy?

Prolotherapy usually requires several sessions of treatment to be effective at the site of injury or weakened area. One person can receive between 4 and 15 treatments per session. These sessions are completed over a period of 3 to 6 months. It is important to apply the irritant correctly to the area or areas that need repair.

Prolotherapy is mainly used to treat injured joints and ligaments. Prolotherapy can also be used in the following body areas; - Knees - Hips - Shoulders - Other joints and ligaments, - Sports injuries - Back pain - Neck pain - Carpal tunnel syndrome - Partially torn tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

However, the treatment areas are not limited to these and can be used for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain conditions. In some cases, it may be preferred to relieve pain in patients with chronic conditions such as degenerative disc disease or arthritis.
