Prolotherapy triggers your body’s self-healing mechanisms to fix injuries without going under the knife.
Life is easier when you don’t hurt. Prolotherapy can get rid of the pain and put you back in the game.
A Prolotherapy injection contains dextrose, lidocaine, and water. No drugs, no risk of dependency.
Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for mild to moderate injuries like lower back pain, tendonitis, and arthritis. Relieve your discomfort and experience the calm and enjoyment you’ve been missing.
Prolotherapy is an injection-based Orthobiological therapy that stimulates and amplifies the body’s innate healing process. Sometimes referred to as proliferative or regenerative therapy, Prolotherapy is safe, FDA-approved, and effective for treating aching joints and muscle pains without surgery or painkillers.
Dr. Barreto actually offers Plasma Rich in Growth Factors (PRGF), which is an activated form of PRP and even more effective since the growth factors are released prior to injection. It can work wonders for the persistent injuries that nag at you every single day. Don’t spend weeks, months, or even years tolerating sore knees, elbows, or other joints when the healing process can be started in as fast as an hour.
During the procedure, a dextrose and lidocaine solution is injected into the injured ligaments, tendons, joints, or other locations in the musculoskeletal system where relief is needed. The injection triggers an inflammatory response, which is the first step in the body’s healing process.
Although inflammation is usually described as negative, it boosts blood flow, which is often lacking in tendons and ligaments. The increased blood flow enables the immune system to repair damaged tissue and regenerate new, healthy collagen cells. This means you can move pain-free and experience life’s full range of motion without surgery or prescription drugs.
