Any feedback on whether this works? Side effects? When do you notice a difference?


  • My husband used prolotherapy treatments to heal a tendon in his foot. It worked for him, but I'm not thinking it could be useful for spine stuff (?). It was a last resort type of thing, because he wanted to avoid foot surgery. It's based on the premise that inflammation is a good thing--it's the way the body fights injury. The treatments took about 6 months. The injections into his tendon would cause the inflammation. During his treatments, he wasn't allowed anything with anti-inflammatory effects--he even had to quit eating salmon. But, it worked. He now runs and races again with no foot pain.
  • sorry--my post got posted twice
