Prolotherapy is an alternative therapy that can help repair ligaments. It's also known as regenerative injection therapy or proliferation therapy. This treatment is meant for injured joints and connective tissue.
Prolotherapy stimulates the body's healing processes to strengthen and repair injured and painful joints and connective tissue. It is based on the fact that when ligaments or tendons (connective tissue) are stretched or torn, the joint they are holding destabilizes and can become painful.
Prolotherapy, with its unique ability to directly address the cause of the instability, can repair the weakened sites and produce new collagen tissue, resulting in permanent stabilization of the joint. Once the joint is stabilized, pain usually resolves.
