Patients have been asking about #regenerative (acupuncture) #injection therapy. Regenerative injection therapy (which includes #prolotherapy) is used to treat chronic pain conditions and musculoskeletal injuries. This treatment consists of injecting a proliferating agent (including dextrose and B12) into an injured muscle or tendon or ligament attachment site (bone or joint), to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This treatment enhances the growth and formation of new and stronger muscle fibers, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage.

Regenerative injection therapy is both natural and non-surgical. Regenerative injection therapy works by exactly the same process that the human body naturally uses to stimulate the body’s healing system, a process called inflammation. The technique involves the injection of a proliferant (a mild irritant solution) that triggers a series of reactions that are collectively known as ‘the wound healing cascade’. As part of this process, the body recruits fibroblasts into the injured area. Fibroblasts are the body’s major cells responsible for the production of new collagen, the material that ligaments and tendons are made of.  The goal of this treatment is to stimulate the growth of new, healthier and stronger connective tissue to restore structure and function to the muscle fibre or joint.

Regenerative Injection therapy is not to be confuse with cortisone injections. Both have their place and are very, very different. Regenerative Injection therapy uses your body’s own healing response to heal itself.
