Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is the oldest form of regenerative therapy. In this treatment method, a suitable and safe HYPERTONIC SOLUTION is injected directly at the degenerated tissue of the body which results in REPAIR or REMODELLING of the tissue.  The injected solution attracts all the body mechanisms of healing and repair to the degenerated or damaged tissue.
