Prolotherapy is a treatment of chronic pain. It moves away from the traditional uses of anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone injections and instead “uses the body’s own healing process to eliminate pain” by stimulating it to repair the “painful” areas. The stimulation is caused by an injection of an irritant, such as a sugar or salt solution, into the painful area. This triggers the immune system to act and begin healing. This process has been able to help pain related to the back, neck, joints, arthritis, migraines, herniated discs and fibromyalgia. 
If you are having chronic pain and traditional medicines are not working, ask your doctor about prolotherapy. When it comes to your health, it never hurts to ask.
