Resolve your pain with Prolotherapy.
Dr. Lederman is very proud to offer this therapy to help people heal and live their life pain-free.
For over 60 years, this highly effective medical treatment has been used to treat ligament and tendon injuries.
This injection technique was originated by Dr. George Hackett, MD. He was a busy trauma surgeon who recognized injuries healed dramatically from the simple injection of a dextrose solution into the damaged tissue.
He called it Prolotherapy to refer to the proliferation of new connective tissue. With the formation of this new tissue, strength returns and pain resolves.
Prolotherapy is now utilized in medical clinics worldwide. It is commonly sought as a first-line therapy by the public. It is also prominently used by professional sports athletes to help them quickly recover and return to action.
Prolotherapy is often used to treat the following musculoskeletal pain:
In your first visit, Dr. Lederman will assess the area of pain and injury and make the appropriate recommendations. If treatment is indicated, you can begin that day.
The Prolotherapy treatment consists of a quick series of injections with small, acupuncture-like needles. Patients will usually receive 3 treatments and then they will be re-assessed.
* Results may vary based on an individual’s program compliance.
