Anybody know anything about prolotherapy? It involves injecting a hypertonic saline or dextrose solution into an inflamed area to cause more inflammation and hopefully elicit an immunological/regenerative response by the body, ie, stimulates fibroblast formation. The mechanism of action for prolotherapy sounds familiar to the microtrauma-repair mechanism of ESWT.

Have you used the search link on this site. I think its great. You probably will find something about prolotherapy from earlier post. What surprises me is how much stuff you can read. Plug in a word and someones posted about it. It's great, just great.
