Prolotherapy is a Regenerative Injection Technique (RIT) that helps to stimulate repair of damaged or weakened joints, ligaments, and tendons. This non-surgical treatment leads to long-lasting joint strength, increase in joint function, and elimination of pain.
Although prolotherapy is a medical injection technique that has been around for a long time, it is very naturopathic in that it stimulates the body’s own cells to replace and repair degenerated tissue. All medicines administered by Dr. Larson have been FDA-approved for decades.
Prolotherapy is very technique-sensitive requiring the practitioner to display exceptional manual dexterity and a skilled ability to locate anatomical landmarks. With almost two decades of hands-on experience in chiropractic training and clinical practice, Dr. Larson has developed the unique ability of technically evaluating the musculoskeletal system. This skillset affords him the ability to perform these regenerative injections with the highest level of safety and effectiveness.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma and is an extract of your own blood that is concentrated with growth factors. It offers an enhanced degree of regeneration.
What to Expect:
Prolotherapy and PRP work in an accumulation of each other. Each session builds upon the one before. Patient’s typically need 4-6 sessions spaced about 2-3 weeks apart from each other. It is important to stay on schedule with this therapy or else you may lose the benefit. The experience is different for everyone, but typically they may start to notice improvements after the third session.
