In October of 2002 I twisted my shoulder in an incident. I went to the hospital and was given some medication to alleviate the swelling and was advised to limit my use beyond stretching for a period of time. After a couple of months, my shoulder still wasn’t feeling 100% so I sought out the opinion of a surgeon. After an MRI, I was told there was nothing wrong with my shoulder. At this point I had had enough and spent several hours researching shoulder injuries on the Internet. Eventually I located a website presenting Prolotherapy treatment. I was most attracted to the procedure because it did not involve any medication. Immediately after the injection, although stiff, my shoulder did not have the usual pain. Within a few days the stiffness went away and slowly but surely my shoulder improved from where it was prior to the treatment. I would certainly recommend the procedure to others who have tissue or joint injuries that don’t seem to respond to any other form of treatment or who may want to try this as an alternative to surgical procedures.
