Thanks to prolotherapy injections, which we offer here in Sarasota, Florida, you no longer have to suffer chronic pain due to arthritis, sports injuries, and degenerative joint conditions. The latest human regeneration technologies make being pain-free possible, even without expensive surgeries or harmful drugs.
Prolotherapy, also known as “proliferation therapy” or “regenerative injection therapy,” is a nonsurgical in-office treatment to stimulate your body’s natural healing mechanisms to repair injured and painful musculoskeletal tissue.
What does prolotherapy work for? The wide range of conditions includes:
- back & joint pain
- sports injuries
- arthritis & osteoarthritis
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- degenerative joint disease
- whiplash , and
- many others.
At the DaSilva Institute, we offer several different types of prolotherapy injections, which are performed as needed to achieve the best results for each patient’s specific condition.
Dextrose Injection Prolotherapy:
Doctors perform a painless 20-30 minute procedure in which concentrated dextrose (sugar water) is injected directly into the site of pain, stimulating a mild, temporary inflammation. This tricks the body into thinking that a new injury has occurred, thus inducing the growth of new cells in areas that generally have poor healing, like ligaments and tendons. The end result is a reduction or elimination of pain, which takes approximately 6-10 weeks to fully appreciate.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Prolotherapy:
PRP treatment is the next level of prolotherapy. A PRP injection is often used to treat soft tissue injuries and eroded joints and bone issues due to degenerative diseases. The 60-minute procedure involves injecting high concentrations of platelets from the patient’s own blood, which contains growth factors that promote cell regeneration. Dramatic results from PRP injections can be seen in as few as 30 days. Superstar NBA basketball player Kobe Bryant flew all the way to Germany to have PRP therapy for his injured knee.
Biocellular (Autologous Stem Cell Transplant) Prolotherapy:
This advanced form of prolotherapy transplants your body’s own healing stem cells to treat the most severe conditions. Adult stem cell therapy offers complete regeneration of lost or damaged tissue for patients with chronic injury or inflammation. These patients most likely have cellular depletion (lack of local repair cells required for healing), which can be corrected with adipose derived stem cells harvested from the patient’s own fat tissue (and/or bone marrow). The stem cells are concentrated and injected back into the area in need, where they begin naturally regenerating damaged tissue.
Stem cell treatment is a painless in-office procedure performed by a trained, fully qualified prolotherapy doctor that is safe, quick and far more affordable than surgical alternatives. Results can be appreciated in about 30 days, and are typically outstanding. One of many famous athletes who benefited from stem cell regeneration prolotherapy is Peyton Manning for his injured neck.
