Dextrose injections


Prolotherapy (dextrose) are made up of a solution of saline, dextrose and lidocaine which is injected into the affected/inflamed joints; this causes the tissues, ligaments and tendons around the joint to grow. This growth decreases inflammation and reduces pain in the area local to the injection site. This treatment is completely non-toxic and extremely safe. It can be repeated every three to six weeks until the inflammation has dissipated; or, in the case of chronic issues, as long as necessary. The patient may experience some numbness because of the lidocaine, as well as very minor local bruising and tenderness for a few days after the injections.
