CHRONIC PAIN TREATMENTS
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PROLOTHERAPY
Prolotherapy is a safe, effective and non-surgical treatment for chronic pain using injections to jumpstart healing. This method has been used for decades on various types of musculoskeletal injuries.
Prolotherapy is performed to repair and strengthen these connections and thereby eliminate or decrease pain. Think of this like welding structures together that have been weakened. The best part is that prolotherapy is a natural way to treat these problems by using the body’s inherent healing mechanisms. Sometimes we just need some help to “jumpstart” our own ability to heal. Prolotherapy is also a solution to the problem and not a coverup like using pain medication or steroid injections.
Prolotherapy treatments do not contain any drugs, steroids, narcotics or NSAIDs, are performed in the office and do not require surgery. Dr. Krasnick performs injections under ultrasound guidance, so he is highly accurate in injecting the treatment to the exact location needed. These treatments allow the body’s own natural healing powers to recover and restore to health.
