hello all

just would like honest feedback on prolotheapy does it work for ddd short term long term cure it ?.. Many thanks legend


  • Would not call it a cure, but I have tried about everything, and had the best luck with prolotheapy.

    Everytime the Doctors would send me to PT I would get worse. Then I found a Doc. that did prolo. and had him try that. I got about 50% better. Prolo made my damaged disk more stable. The stretching from PT was making the disk flare up.

    Depending on your situation, it might be worth checking into.
  • hello there,

    thanks for reply I will look into this a bit more speak to my doctor about it will keep updated

  • I have a business card from someone who does prolo. Called to check prices. Sounds like 400 a treatment approx, as quoted by the receptionist. I might give it a try eventually. Haven't heard of anyone saying it made them worse.
