Has anyone had any success with prolotherapy for the neck? I have mechanical issues from c7 - c1 / occiput and aside from pain I get dizziness, vertigo, photophobia, migraines, clogged ears (sometimes called barre lieou syndrome). It's awful but I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir.

Anyone have any success with prolotherapy?

Thanks xx

    I did have that done a couple of times, I had a herniated disc at c6 -c7 that has since been fused. I remember that it was my pain management doctor that did the injections, and the last office visit I had with her she said she could put this giant syringe full into my neck and maybe that would give me just a little bit of relief. It didn't heal anything but it did lessen the pain for a little bit. I remember it was a giant needle and a giant syringe, reminded me of something they would use on a horse. She put it in without x-ray or anything, just shot it where I was hurting. I know that 45 minutes later when I got home I showed my wife where she did the injection and it still had a giant hump where the fluid hadn't absorbed yet.
    For me it was just temporary but I don't know how that works for others.
  • I have had multiple prolo treatments for a thoracic spine and rib issue. I have success with these treatments and will be continuing with them.
  • Any success with treatment??. I'm in the same boat as you and desperate.
