Prolotherapy is a targeted injection of a mild irritant solution injected directly on the torn or stretched ligament or tendon site. This creates a mild, controlled injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, laying down new tissue on the weakened structure. The mild inflammatory response created by the injection encourages the growth of new ligament or tendon fibers, resulting in a tightening of the weakened structure. In Cochrane near Calgary, additional treatments repeat this process in our Prolotherapy clinic, allowing a gradual buildup of tissue to restore the original strength to the area.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) uses injections of the patient’s concentrated platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Administered under ultrasound guidance, PRP can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Cosmetically, we can provide skin rejuvenation, vampire facials with micro-needling, and hair restoration. Our PRP clinic in Cochrane near Calgary has some of the best doctors for this process.
