PRP & Prolotherapy ~ An Alternative to Surgery

One of the most sought after services offered here at Revolutions Naturopathic is our PRP/Prolotherapy injection services.

We use ultra-sound guidance for the best in non-surgical repairs. Depending on how severe the tear or weakness is, prolotherapy injections can repair the injury or damage at the site with only a few injections of completely natural substances. Once injected, a cascade of repairing and rebuilding begins. The target of these injections are usually tendons, ligaments, joints and other supportive structures that can cause pain and difficulty in mobility.

Most people believe that once they sustain an injury they are doomed to a sentence of long-term use of painkillers. When that no longer becomes an option, the wear-and-tear eventually leads to surgery.

However, Prolotherapy or PRP can be a beneficial intervention that increases the quality of life while decreasing pain and preventing further injury. Because it is not tricking your body into ignoring the pain which also allows continuous damage to occur, this is a non-pharmaceutical option that yields real benefits. Some examples of cases that we have treated include:

• Knee injuries
• Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow
• Rotator Cuff Tears
• Shoulder Injuries
• Joint Instability
• Osteoarthritis
• Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
• TMJ Dysfunction
• And many others

Call our office (916.351.9355) to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors to see if you are an eligible candidate. You can then discuss which potential injection type would be best suited for you.
