    •    Please do not wash the affected area for at least 24 hours after the procedure.

    •    Please spend the day and evening after your Prolotherapy quietly.  I strongly urge you to relax by listening to soothing music, sleeping, meditation, mantras, etc.

    •    Do not plan on doing any heavy activity for at least 24 hours and sometimes 48 hours after your procedure.

    •    Please avoid anti-inflammatory medicines: Motrin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Relafen, Voltaren, Feldene, Clinoril, Naprosyn, Aleve, Asprin and Alcohol.  It also includes anti-inflammatory herbs such as: Turmeric, Ginger, Tulsi (holy basil), green tea, peppermint, rosemary, and lavender for 10 days afterward (if you could avoid them for 2 weeks that would be ideal). Baby asprin at bedtime is ok.  Remember we want to create an inflammatory response.

    •    If your foot or ankle was treated, you will need to ace wrap or use soft elastic wrap on the ankle daily for the next 6 weeks.

    •    For any questions or problems, please don’t hesitate to call the numbers above.

    •    You may take Tylenol 350 mg (2 tablets) every 6 hours for pain.

    •    You may ice the area for 20 minutes every hour for pain.
