Prolotherapy is a treatment designed to induce the body’s immune system into kickstarting the repair of damaged or scarred tissue.
The process involves injecting a substance into the damaged region, creating an induced inflammation which in turn, increases blood flow to the area so the body can repair itself.
Podiatrists perform more injection therapy on patients than almost any other field of medicine, and our highly trained podiatrists at Pride Podiatry have years of experience in using prolotherapy to help patients achieve better health in their feet and ankles.
Prolotherapy can be utilised for chronic ankle sprains, osteoarthritis (OA), plantar fasciitis and bursitis/neuroma.
Prolotherapy can involve the use of local anaesthetic agents, simple sugars such as glucose, platelet rich plasma and much more.
At Pride Podiatry we use isotonic glucose mixed with a local anaesthetic to stimulate the healing response and achieve a reparative process in targeted tissue, and to help reduce acute on chronic pain.
