Prolotherapy is a technique we have been doing for almost 15 years at McDonagh Medical Center. It is a technique in which we inject an irritating substance into the ligaments every 1/4 inch along the ligament to increase the tensile strength of the ligaments in order to strengthen a joint. We have written an informative pamphlet entitled, Joint Reconstruction Therapy (our old name for Prolotherapy). Â If you would like to go to the pamphlet and read about prolotherapy simply click on the book.
