Prolotherapy is a newer way to heal joints and actually reclaim some of the healthy cartilage tissue that has been lost. It can be curative for some people with bad joint pains.

You may return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure. It is not yet FDA approved, however, especially when used early in the disease, it is the only way to possible reverse joint disease and damage to get your knees, shoulders, and back to return to their younger and better function.
Complete Care Doctors like Dr. Walsh and Dr. Kahane are able to safely use prolotherapy to help reverse the causes of your joint pain.
