Are You Looking for Prolotherapy Injection Therapy in Melbourne?
Prolotherapy is an injection technique designed to stimulate healing in injured parts of your body that may be slow to heal or may not have healed completely.
Prolotherapy is the injection of saline, local anaesthetic and glucose into a soft tissue or joint.
The injection triggers a pro-inflammatory response, resulting in the production of new collagen.
It is a safe and effective form of injection aimed at stimulating new connective tissue.
