Weakened joints of the body are injected with a proliferant (“rapid production”) solution that directly stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. Eclipse’s prolotherapy treatments can help with improving the function of many aspects of the musculoskeletal system and improve the discomfort associated with chronic pain in various joints of the body (elbows, shoulders, knees and hips, for example).
- Weakened or injured ligaments and tendons surrounded joints are injected with an irritant (dextrose – pharmaceutical grade sugar water).
- This promotes short-term inflammation that stimulates the immune system’s own healing mechanism to produce collagen and cartilage as well as increases the blood supply and flow of nutrients, stimulating the tissue to repair itself.
- The new collagen and cartilage strengthens and restores joints and supporting soft tissue, reducing or eliminating many different types of pain.
- The number of treatments varies with each patient. Many of our patients have reported partial or complete relief of pain after only one session.
