    I was wondering if anyone here has tried Prolotherapy? I'm pretty sure I have seen this posted in the past, but I'm not sure how to find it. So I thought I would ask, I read up on this a bit, anyone with info on this I would like to hear from you. All opinions are welcome! Thanks:)

    I had a pain management dr that specialized in prolotherapy. It was about $5,000 for the whole round of injections, and not covered by insurance. From the research I have done, I was too scared to try, even if I could afford it. There is evidence that it could actually weaken the ligaments, rather than strengthening them. The doctor I had was basically in it for the money, and pushed it on everyone who walked through the door.

    Just be careful & be sure to to lots of research before you make a decision. None of us need to get worse from a treatment that is supposed to make us better!
