Caring Medical - Where the world comes for ProlotherapyTendinopathy injections and treatments

What is Tendinopathy? Tendinopathy is general diagnosis to describe a patient’s pain caused by damage around or in a tendon. Other diagnosis that fall under the Tendinopathy umbrella are tendinitis, which is pain from and inflammation of the tendon area. This is usually the result of an acute or new injury. Tendonosis is pain from a tendon that has no swelling or inflammation. This is a chronic condition usually brought on ill-treated, non-healing tendinitis.

Articles on treatments for specific tendon problems.

The typical treatment regime for tendonitis, such as knee tendonitis, rotator cuff tendonitis or patellar tendonitis, includes the RICE protocol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy and cortisone injections. Other options include cryotherapy and massage. But again, they may provide pain relief. However, if truly a weakened and/or injured tendons and ligaments is the issue, these are only a temporary fix.

Regenerative treatment for tendinopathy

As mentioned above, when tendonitis does not improve, and the tendons are continually stressed, the tendon will degenerate, causing tendinosis. Comprehensive Prolotherapy for tendinosis and joint instability involves treating all of the areas where the tendon attaches to the bone, and the weakened soft tissue structures.

Our technique involves treating all the structures in the joint that are not of sufficient strength to stabilize and move the joint through a pain free range of motion.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP) can be added to the traditional Prolotherapy solution to expedite the process, in specific cases. Whether alone, or with PRP, Prolotherapy causes the body to repair these structures by stimulating a mild, inflammatory response that triggers a natural wound healing cascade. The tendons get stronger and thicker because the body deposits new collagen. The tendon will become strong enough to be able to perform normally again.
