We provide professional support in Prolotherapy.
Although prolotherapy has been applied especially in
America since the early 1900s, it has been used in the treatment of painful
diseases all over the world and in our country since the 2000s.
Although prolotherapy is used to treat pain, it does not
have a pain relieving feature. It is used in restructuring and
strengthening the structures that cause pain. Namely; When the
supporting structures of the body and the structures that stabilize the joints
( tendons and ligaments)
are damaged (such as tears, looseness),
irregularity, imbalance and pain occur in the joints. The aim of prolotherapy treatment is to stimulate
the body’s repair mechanism with various solutions applied toloosened,
weakened or damaged tendons and ligaments, and the restoration and
strengthening of these structures is aimed by remodeling.
The solutions used in prolotherapy create an irritation
in the area where it is given. This situation triggers the inflammatory
response in the body. As a result, repair cells come to the environment
and repair substances (such as VEGF, PDGF, FGF, hormones) are released
intensively. After the application, the repair mechanism is activated and
this process continues for about 3 months.
In summary, Prolotherapy corrects the
deteriorated structures and functions by stimulating and supporting the natural
healing mechanism of our body. As the functions improve, the pain goes
away. Most importantly, all these are done without any medication; therefore,
NO SIDE EFFECTS.
The pain may get worse in the first few days after injection.
Before and after treatment, pain relief (NSAII) medication should not be used.
The patient should not be taking blood thinners and should not have any infection.
Before and after the procedure, the patient’s drinking plenty of water and taking vitamin C help the treatment.

shoulder, back, knee and ankle pains, partial tendon, ligament and muscle
lesions, sports injuries (various tenosynovitis, lateral epicondylitis,
