Prolotherapy or RIT

Prolotherapy or Regenerative Injection Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that heals ligaments, tendons, tissue tears, nerve pain, and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. The injections promote collagen repair which is a natural body protein necessary for the formation of new connective tissue – the tissue that holds our skeletal structure together.The Woodlands Houston

By strengthening weakened connective tissue, we can often alleviate musculoskeletal pain and improve function and mobility. Studies have shown that regenerative injections provide benefits for people with chronic pain, as well as those with sports injuries. These injections are often used as an alternative to invasive arthroscopic surgery.

The treatment itself usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes and consists of multiple injections around the injured area. Some patients may respond well to just one treatment, while other patients may need several to achieve the desired results. Collagen growth required to stabilize the joint and other factors such as age, area of injury, and extent of injury differs from patient to patient. In some cases surgery is necessary.

Patients should be off anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs) for one week or more prior to treatment. All individuals respond to the treatment differently, but usually are sore for a day or more. After the initial inflammation, and as the body heals, the pain from the treatment improves.

It’s no wonder athletes are turning to Prolotherapy – it is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates healing, improves strength, and restores tissue.
