Combining Prolotherapy and Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy for Joint Repair in a Case of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Disruption

Combining Prolotherapy and Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy for Joint Repair in a Case of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Disruption

Ratings: (0)|Views: 134 |Likes:
Proliferation therapy (prolotherapy) and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) are effective treatments that support the body’s own healing processes. These therapies, when performed with precision and in combination with careful patient assessment and dietary measures that support tissue repair, have significant potential to reduce current and future morbidity resulting from injury and from chronic degenerative conditions.
This article reports the case of a 25-year-old male with anterior cruciate ligament disruption who was treated with a combination of dextrose prolotherapy and PRP with dietary/supplement support. After two prolotherapy treatments and six PRP treatments performed in series in the course of 1 year, the patient’s ligament has healed, as confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging. Surrounding tissue that also presented with damage, which was confirmed by MRI at the patient’s initial examination, was also shown to have healed. The patient was pleased enough with the results of this therapy that he initiated treatment of several other injured joints.
