IN THE SIMPLEST TERMS, PROLOTHERAPY STIMULATES THE BODY TO HEAL ITSELF!
As stated on the Prolotherapy page, many musculoskeletal pains are due to ligament and/or tendon relaxation. This means that there is damage to these structures which causes instability.
Prolotherapy is the injection of a ‘proliferant’ solution into these damaged structures which stimulates an inflammatory response (the body’s natural healing mechanism).
This response is the first phase in healing damaged structures.
Our bodies are designed to survive
We are built to adapt
We are made to heal!
We have systems that heal our damaged structures. The circulatory system carries chemicals and nutrients to the site of injury to fuel the process of re-building damaged structures.
In the case of ligaments and/or tendons, the blood supply is very poor. That is why they appear white on dissection. The poor blood supply decreases the effectiveness of the inflammatory and healing mechanisms and can result in chronic ligament/tendon laxity and, often, pain.
Prolotherapy initiates a powerful inflammatory response in these damaged areas by stimulating the healing cascade.
Prolotherapy stimulates the body to heal itself.
Prolotherapy & PRP are excellent procedures that may dramatically improve YOUR pain.
Most people want to know how the procedure works.
Some people don’t care, they just want to get better.
Either way, we want to give you as much information as you need in order to make an informed decision. Read about how prolotherapy works, how PRP works, and how they can change your life!
The next concern that most people have is “is it covered by insurance” and “how much does it cost?”
Two very good questions.
Neither procedure is covered by insurance. Tulsa prolotherapy may seem expensive to some people. However, it is must less expensive than living a life of pain, time off from work, co-pays, medications, therapies, etc. Read more about Prolotherapy & PRP costs & prices at Revolution Health & Wellness Clinic.

Where you should have Tulsa Prolotherapy or PRP performed:
Prolotherapy and PRP are extremely effective but you want to make sure that you are having your procedure performed by a highly trained and qualified prolotherapist!
Dr Edwards has performed thousands of prolotherapy and PRP procedures and has been using these procedures for several years.
There is no certification for the procedure so, technically, anyone can say they do prolotherapy or PRP. Beware of prolotherapy performed by anyone not appropriately trained. We have seen a number of complications from other ‘prolotherapists’. We have also seen a number of patients improve after having true prolotherapy when they hadn’t had any benefit from going to these other ‘prolotherapists’.
