Prolotherapy Able to Bring Decline in Painful Joints
According to a novel research carried out by a group of researchers from the University of Wisconsin, Seattle, it has been revealed that series of water and sugar injections are able to bring a decline in knee pain.
Dr John Loeser, Specialist, said that studies have been done, but the therapy's positive effect could not be revealed. But the current study has tried to come forth with the positive results.
Dr Loeser, who was not involved in the study, said that it would not be wrong to say that the study has tried to discuss a number of issues that deals with prolotherapy.
It has been found that knee osteoarthritis is quite a common problem among elderly and especially among those, who are above 65 years. The therapy costs between $200 and $1,000 per session and does not include medical aid.
In the procedure, small amounts of solution are injected at the painful areas, like ligament and tendons. Lead researcher Dr David Rabago from the University of Wisconsin said that in order to reach at the above given result, 90 people were divided into three subgroups.
The first group received sugar-water prolotherapy injections, second group received salt-water placebo injections and the third group was given instructions to perform just at-home exercises. The first group was found to be witnessing less pain.
