Expected Outcomes of Regenerative Injection Therapy

  • Decrease or eliminate pain 

  • Decrease or eliminate stiffness in joints 

  • Increase joint stability

  • Postpone or eliminate the need for surgery

  • Regenerate damaged, lax, torn ligaments, tendons and cartilage

  • Improve ability to function both in activities of daily living & exercise

*severe or advanced cases may require more treatments or may not be appropriate for regenerative injection therapy


The basic mechanism of Prolotherapy is simple. Prolotherapy solutions are injected into your painful areas to begin a reparative action. The injection creates a localized inflammation triggering the immune system to create the building blocks of ligaments, tendons, cartilage and bone. Comprehensive Prolotherapy through a series of injections REBUILDS the joints from within.

It has been observed and hypothesized that most spinal and joint pain results from ligament damage and the compensation resulting from that damage.

Ligament damage creates joint laxity and localized and referred pain

Compensation for laxity in the joint or spinal segment creates muscle spasms, myalgia’s, and nerve compression. It also creates changes in axial alignment and architecture.

Series of injections that cause irritation and thus an inflammatory response. Some inflammation is important for healing.


Feel free to book a FREE 15min Meet & Greet with Dr. Niddery to discuss prolotherapy further and determine if it is an appropriate option for you.

Prolotherapy stems from the word Proliferative Therapy and is a form of regenerative therapy that is a permanent solution to repair damaged connective tissue. Can be utilized in both acute and chronic conditions.

 It is a superior treatment in the management of chronic pain and getting people back to their active lifestyle.

 You can benefit from prolotherapy if you have any torn or weak ligaments, history of injury that has left you with loose or lax ligaments.
