Head and Neck Pain
Prolotherapy is beneficial for neck injuries and headaches that originate from the neck.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain are degenerative arthritis, whiplash, muscular ligamentous injuries, disc disease and repetitive motion disorders.
Headaches may be related to abnormal neck conditions, nerve injuries, migraines and trauma.
Proper diagnosis is needed to determine what combination of conventional and alternative treatment will be needed.
Low Back Pain
Back pain and low back injuries and diseases are common health problems that may be due to unresolved sprains/strains, sports activities, car accidents, disc disease and degenerative conditions.
At our pain center, we will identify your specific pain generator and design an individual plan of treatment for you. Prolotherapy for lower back pain is an effective, non-surgical solution to chronic pain.
Arthritis is a common term for degenerative joint disease. In its very advanced form, joint replacement surgery is the standard of care.
However, many patients have degenerative problems and hurt immensely at the earlier stages of arthritis when surgery is not yet necessary. Prolotherapy on the other hand can be very effective at these stages. Some patients have had difficulties after knee or hip surgery and are trying to avoid another surgery and others simply had surgery and are still having problems. Prolotherapy has been found to be very helpful in all of these instances.
Chronic hip problems are very common and in cases of severely advanced degenerative joint disease, hip replacement surgery may be a helpful treatment.
However, hip surgery may not be the appropriate treatment when hip discomfort and pain is severe but degenerative changes are minimal or moderate. In these cases Prolotherapy can cure and/or improve the problems, stabilize the hip and significantly increase functional activities. Prolotherapy for hip treatment involves injections to the hip joint, tendons and often the sacroiliac joint and its ligaments.
The knee is the largest joint in the body and one of the most common types of chronic pain conditions. We have all heard about professional athletes who injure their ACL, MCL or other various knee ligaments or tendons around the joint. These knee injuries can happen to anyone and often Prolotherapy is the solution. Prolotherapy for knee pain is safe, effective and non-invasive.
In some cases, knee injuries heal by themselves given adequate time, and other times, seemingly small injuries fail to heal on their own. This may lead to tendinosis or ligamentosis, which are degenerative changes in ligaments and tendons around and inside the knee joint. This is when Prolotherapy treatment can help the most. If not treated in a timely manner, these problems usually deteriorate leading to faster break down, causing degenerative joint diseases that affect both the inside and outside structures of the knee joint. In very advanced severe instances, knee replacement surgery could be your only option.
Fortunately, Prolotherapy for knee pain may offer you a very effective treatment to regain mobility and eliminate pain.
Shoulder pain and problems are frequently due to muscular, ligamentations or joint abnormalities.
Prolotherapy for shoulder pain is an effective and non-surgical solution for pain relief. While complete rotator cuff tears may need surgery, the vast majority of incomplete tears and degenerative changes respond to Prolotherapy.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
If you are one of the approximately 11 million people in the US who suffer from Temporomandibular Joint Disease, you are surely familiar with the clicking and grinding of the jaw, headaches, facial discomfort and even the difficulty eating or talking associated with TMJ disease.
As early as 1937, Dr. Schultz a dentist from Chicago described a simple, reliable and effective injection treatment for TMJ disease after positive experimental and clinical research. Today, this treatment for TMJ is known as Prolotherapy.
