Santa Clarita Prolotherapy for Faster, Healthier Healing

Medical Chiropractor Serving Santa Clarita for More Than a Decade

A solution for chronic back pain, prolotherapy is an injection-based treatment option that helps alleviate back pain after injury. The process involves inserting a needle into the affected area and an injection of an irritating substance. This substance irritates the area, stimulating a natural healing response.

At Unruh Spine Center, we have recommended Prolotherapy, also known as proliferation therapy, to patients suffering from chronic pain years after an injury, or from chronic pain due to overuse. Ask our Santa Clarita chiropractor if prolotherapy is right for you.

Prolotherapy works by:

  • Targeting tendons or ligaments that have incompletely healed after an injury.
  • Increasing blood flow to the injured area.
  • Repairing damaged tissue.
  • Stimulating growth of new fibrous tissue, strengthening the weakened joints.

Prolotherapy is especially used on knees and spines, though effective on any weakened ligament or tendon.

Does the Treatment Hurt?

In most cases, we administer a block or anesthetic before the procedure to alleviate discomfort and to help you relax. Patients rarely report pain during this procedure. Post-procedure, acetaminophen can help with pain relief, though any anti-inflammatories would inhibit the effectiveness of prolotherapy.

As always, if you are concerned about any detail of your procedure, ask one of our health care providers. We want you to feel comfortable and informed about your health care decisions.
