Prolotherapy treatments are typically done under light reversible sedation with very little recovery time.
In our practice the most commonly treated injury is cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) injury in dogs. Prolotherapy is most successful for milder or partial tears and is more successful in small dogs and cats. Other uses of prolotherapy include osteoarthritis (elbows, shoulders, stifles and hips) and biceps tendonitis.
In general, the minimum time between prolotherapy treatments is 4-6 weeks with this time frame being modified depending on the individual case. Anti-inflammatory medications or treatments are contraindicated during treatment as prolotherapy relies on producing local inflammation to produce its beneficial effects.
