Musculoskeletal pain is caused by an injury to the bones, joints, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Damage to these areas can be caused by acute damage to the muscle, trauma occurring from the jerking movement experienced during accidents as well as fractures, breaks, sprains and dislocations caused from falls. Musculoskeletal pain ranks as the number one most commonly reported cause of pain in adults across the U.S. with a reported 97 million adults over the age of 18 seeking a physician for treatment. Musculoskeletal pain results in chronic and ongoing pain that can have a dramatic impact on your daily life.
In the past, conservative medical treatments have only provided options such as prescription medication, ineffective therapies and invasive surgeries to treat chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal damage. However, Regenerative Medical Center of Delaware offers a state of the art, in office injection called Prolotherapy that medical studies have declared as a safe and effective alternative to conservative medical treatments.

Prolotherapy Can Help You Heal and Free Your Body from Pain
Prolotherapy (Proliferative Therapy), which is also known as Regenerative Joint Injection and Non-Surgical Ligament and Tendon Reconstruction, is a non-surgical orthopedic procedure that stimulates the body’s own healing of connective tissue and joints. According to the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine, Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body’s innate healing abilities to regenerate new tissue in the damaged and weakened area. During the procedure, an injection is made to the specific point of injury – this actually “tricks” the body into thinking it was injured by creating an inflammatory response in the already injured area. The body goes into healing mode and rushes to repair the damaged area. This allows the body to naturally produce new connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments which results in a heightened stabilization of the accompanying joint. Prolotherapy is an effective treatment that can benefit these areas of chronic pain:
- Disc problems anywhere in the spine
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Temporal Mandibular Joint dysfunction
- Joint dislocation
- Spider veins on the following areas
