Joint Regeneration & Dextrose-Prolotherapy
An Effective Alternative to Joint Surgery & Replacement
Innovated in the U.S.A. by George S. Hackett, M.D. in the 1930’s, and simultaneously developing in China for the Barefoot Doctor Program, Dextrose Joint Regeneration Prolotherapy Injections have been in use since the 1950’s.
In China it was used alongside acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine to treat pain and injuries of the joints, ligaments and tendons suffered by farmers while working on the fields, making this therapy an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Still relatively unknown in the U.S., its use is gaining in popularity throughout the world, healing previously irreparable injuries, helping patients to avoid surgery, restoring normal joint function, repairing ligaments, tendons, joint cartilage, meniscus tears and healing chronic pain.
Injecting dextrose is a technique in which a sterile solution of a type of concentrated sugar called (Dextrose) is injected around ligaments, tendons and into joints to reactivate the production of our own body’s growth factors and collagen deposition, resulting in new cells and tissue regeneration.
Dextrose-Injections are a stunning alternative to the high cost, debilitating recovery and lengthy rehabilitation process after surgery.
These injections are a wonderful weapon in the arsenal of anti-aging and regenerative medicine.
