Natural Health > Prolotherapy

"Prolo" means proliferation. Hence, prolotherapy is also known as proliferation therapy, regenerative injection therapy or nonsurgical ligament reconstruction. It is used to treat musculoskeletal pain. The treatment encourages growth of new ligament tissue, through the injection of a non-pharmacological and non-active irritant solution to the ligament or tendon where it attaches to the bone. This causes a localized inflammation in these weak areas which then increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients and stimulates the tissue to repair itself. (source: prolotherapy.com, wikipedia)
