Prolotherapy injections can help you heal your hip pain.
What is prolotherapy?
Prolotherapy is a type of natural injection therapy that helps to stimulate the body's natural healing processes. This can be done by injecting a substance like sugar water (for example, dextrose) or a customized injection containing natural collagen, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients a joint may need into an injured area in order to stimulate the growth of new connective tissue. This extra tissue can then support and strengthen the area, which should reduce pain and increase function.
Prolotherapy for hip pain
Many people are confused about how prolotherapy works when it comes to hip pain because they assume that prolotherapy only works on joints instead of soft tissues. However, in reality, prolotherapy works on all types of connective tissue—not just joints. Since connective tissue covers bone, ligaments, and tendons, this means that prolotherapy can actually be very effective for helping hip pain caused by conditions like osteoarthritis or bursitis.
The bottom line: Prolotherapy isn't just for joint problems! If you have hip pain that isn't responding to other treatments like physical therapy or medication, prolotherapy may be able to give you the relief you need!
