Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for all joints including back, sacro-iliac joint, hip, knee, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder and neck. It is a great remedy for early arthritis and sports injuries too. Dr. Tucker, a Sports Medicine Specialist is a Phi Beta Kappa graduating from the University of Southern California who is interested in cutting edge technology for her patients.
After suffering herself, from severe low back pain that did not respond to conventional treatment, Dr. Tucker found a cure with Prolotherapy. She became deeply driven to undergo extensive training in order to offer this treatment to people in pain. It may be very possible for you to live a pain free life with reasonable activity and no drugs.
Prolotherapy involves a series of injections with dextrose (sugar water) around the joints and back which stimulate the body's natural healing response. PRP(Platelet-Rich-Plasma) is another type of Prolotherapy using the patients own blood, spun down to contain growth factors which help to heal damaged cartilage and is more effective for severe arthritis, and torn ligaments and tendons. Neuro-Prolotherapy is the use of dextrose solution injected under the skin to relieve chronic nerve pain and pain that does not respond to any other treatment. Specialized training and experience allows Dr. Tucker to introduce you to this life-changing way of treating chronic back and joint pain without surgery or drugs.
