Regenerative Injection Therapy

PRPRegenerative Injective Therapy(RIT) is a simple, natural technique that stimulates the body to repair the painful area when the natural healing process needs a little assistance. The basic mechanism of RIT is simple. The proliferative/building solution of dextrose, saline solution, nutritional and homeopathic substances is injected into the "ah-shi" acupuncture points at the affected ligaments or tendons, which purposely leads to local inflammation. The localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen, the material from which ligaments and tendons are made. New collagen shrinks as it matures. The shrinking collagen tightens the ligament that was injected and makes it stronger.

While most patients undergo traditional medical evaluations (MRI, CT, etc) and conventional treatments of physical therapy, NSAIDs (Advil, Motrin, Celebrex, etc), and steroid injections, all too often they are left with chronic pain. The persistence of chronic pain is frequently the completely overlooked cause----Ligament Injury and Instability.

What is Prolotherapy and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?

Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are biological substances that contain growth factors that when injected induce the body to grow new soft tissue, including ligaments, tendons, muscles, and joint cartilage.

How do Prolotherapy and PRP work?

Since Ligaments, tendons and cartilage have a very poor blood supply, they often result in incomplete healing and chronic pain.
Prolotherapy solutions and PRP are sophisticated biological agents that are designed to produce inflammation in the injured tissue. This local injection trauma, combined with the biological agents, is what promotes fibroblasts to lay down cartilage and attract stem cells to promote the growth of new tissue.

Prolotherapy and PRP reactivate the healing process. New tissue is produced that strengthens lax or unstable ligaments and tendons. The technique may even support damaged or degenerated cartilage, which normally does not repair itself, by strengthening the fibrous connective tissues that stabilize the area.

Can I continue to take pain medication while I receive this therapy?

The healing process can be impeded when injuries are treated with anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or Naprosyn, or prescribed nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Nsaids) to relieve pain and swelling.  You have to discontinue at least temporarily this type of medication.  If you cannot, speak with the doctor.

What about cortisone injections?

Cortisone shots suppress inflammation and provide temporary relief for a chronic condition.  Steroid injections do not grow new soft tissue.  In fact, cortisone can damage your soft tissue and make the chronic condition worse by further weakening the loose soft tissue.   Prolotherapy or PRP injections given over several months are meant to provide a permanent benefit. Prolotherapy essentially tricks the body into initiating a healing response.

How often and how many treatments will I need?

The frequency of treatment is usually every 2-6 weeks.  The number of treatments is usually 3-12, but can vary with the severity, duration, age, and other health problems.

How effective is the therapy? Are there any studies?

The studies have shown that 85% of patients who receive Prolotherapy have long term relief of pain and improved function.  www.annfammed.org
