Figure 4: Prolotherapy stimulates inflammation, which activates the natural healing mechanisms of the body.
Most people are shocked when they find out that the body heals by inflammation. Yes, God made the body to heal by one way only... inflammation! Inflammation is the process whereby the immune system is activated to help the body restore home-ostasis or balance. Prolotherapy injections cause immune cells to arrive at the injury site to repair it.
(See Figure 4.)
Once the injured tissues achieve normal strength, the chronic pain is eliminated. Prolotherapy injections have been shown to significantly increase ligament mass, thickness, and strength. (See Figure 5.)
Prolotherapy outperforms all other treatments such as NSAIDs, cortisone injections, and surgery.
(See Figure 6.)
