Regenerative Injection Therapy
Regenerative Injection Therapies, including prolotherapy (p)rP plasma injections) are safe, natural, non-surgical methods for permanent repair of damaged connective tissue. RIT involve pre-anesthetizing the area of ligament damage and then selectively injecting the appropriate a proliferant solution directly into areas where tendons and ligaments attach to bone, and in places where cartilage is worn or damaged for the purpose of repairing and strengthening tendons, ligaments and cartilage of the joint space.
This results in a localized controlled inflammatory response that stimulates the repair mechanism to heal and regenerate the damaged tissue. Connective tissue is what makes up the supporting structures of bones (ligaments), the connection of muscles (tendons) and the sliding surfaces of joints (cartilage).
Prolotherapy and (p)RP are both safe and effective for acute or chronic pain, arthritis and unresolved injuries that do not respond to rest or other less restorative treatments (surgical, anti-inflammatories or cortisone injections)
