How it Works
Neuroprolotherapy is a very superficial injection of a natural sugar solution into areas where an injured and non-healing sensory nerve is causing inflammation, delaying tissue repair and triggering pain. It is less invasive that classical prolotherapy which uses long needles to inject material into the joints. The aim of the treatment is to bathe the inflamed nerve with the sugar solution that acts to heal the nerve and stop pain conduction. The healed nerve promotes nutritional support to the damaged tissue promoting regeneration and repair.
- The treatment takes between 10 and 30 minutes to complete.
- Physical activity is not restricted following the treatment.
- Most patients tolerate the minimal discomfort associated with the injections and return to their regular workouts or activities the same day.
- Repeated weekly treatments will steadily reduce the overall pain and allow return of full function to the affected area.
- The average number of treatments required for most conditions is 6-8 and success rates vary between 80-100%, depending on the condition.
- The treatment is safe with rare complications like infection (1 in 300 000 injections).
- No allergic reactions have been observed.
- Side effects of this treatment can include bruising of the skin or tenderness at the injection site.
- For most conditions recurrence is unlikely unless re-injury occurs.
