Chronic pain, addiction to medications and or the risks of surgery.
Prolotherapy is a very effective treatment for many forms of musculoskeletal pain. This is because prolotherapy targets ligaments, cartilage and tendon (LCT) structures that our often at the bottom of many pain syndromes. The musculoskeletal system has to be highly flexible and adaptable to physical demands while maintaining structural integrity. This is no small demand considering the constant movement of the human body. LCT tissues stabilize and move bony structures along joints allowing the body a wide array of fluid movements.
But LCT tissues can be injured just like any other part of the body. For example an unexpected step off a street curb and an injury might arise to the knee, ankle and or even one’s lower back. The stability of the body is what LCT structures are all about. Wear and tear to these tissues is a very, very common occurrence for the general public. Athletic injuries can especially leave LCT tissues weakened and injured and in need of attention.
Now consider that unless there is a significant tear or destruction of tissue in an LCT structure there typically will not be positive findings with diagnostic imaging. Unstable or injured LCT structures are for the most part not visible with modern diagnostic imaging. LCT structures hold joints in stable positions based on the health of those tissues. A weak foundation leads to all sorts of problems in house, home and body. LCT syndromes are probably responsible for the vast majority of pain syndromes not corrected by conservative medical management (such as chiropractic and or physical therapy) when there are negative diagnostic imaging studies.
An Alternative to Surgery
More and more the public has growing concerns for surgical treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Surgery can be very helpful but it should be used as a last resort. Prolotherapy in one study has been shown effective in managing patients that had a history of poor surgical outcomes (Failed Back Syndrome). Injection therapy for enthesopathies causing axial spine pain and the “failed back syndrome”: a single blinded, randomized and cross-over study.
Mayo Clinic on Prolotherapy
As of April 2005, doctors at the Mayo Clinic began supporting prolotherapy. Mayo Clinic doctors list the areas that are most likely to benefit from prolotherapy treatment as ankles, knees, elbows, and the sacroiliac joint at the low back. The Mayo clinic reports that “unlike steroid injections — which may provide temporary relief — prolotherapy involves a more permanent strengthening and healing by stimulating tissue growth.”
Superior to Steroid injections
- Audit of conservative management of chronic low back pain in a secondary care setting–part I: facet joint and sacroiliac joint interventions.
- A randomized controlled trial of intra-articular prolotherapy versus steroid injection for sacroiliac joint pain.
Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints among active and sedentary adults today and can be both extremely painful and debilitating.

“I am currently undergoing Prolo Therapy with Dr. Dubroff for my shoulder.
With the orthopedic surgeon, I have had two steroid injections, both under ultrasonic guidance. And in conjunction with the injections, two rounds of physical therapy. I found limited success. The doctor suggested that I try another injection.
That’s when I started looking for alternative treatments. A friend gave me Dr. Dubroff’s contact info. (she’s had great pain relief, quite a success). Dr. Dubroff returned my call and spoke with me directly regarding treatment.
Needless to say, I am very happy with the treatments! I have had a significant increase in range of motion and the pain has been greatly reduced! Dr. Dubroff is great! He is spot on with all of the injections! Not a wasted movement! What a find!”
