Prolotherapy Treatment For Morton’s Neuroma
If you have a foot condition called Morton’s neuroma that causes foot pain, it can be a devastating feeling. Prolotherapy could be your savior.
Caring Medical & Rehabilitation Services received an email from their probable patient, called BK. She reported that her foot pain which she feels for so long became severe when she stand and walk for 10 minutes and longer. She had a lot of questions about Prolotherapy and she is interested in it.
A medical procedure called Prolotherapy is treatment for acute and chronic pain. It is preferred by athletes who had injuries from sports. Prolotherapy is a substitute to narcotic pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone shots, arthroscopy, and surgery. When the body’s process of natural healing fails, Prolotherapy encourages the body to repair the injured painful area.
Prolotherapy solutions are injected into the joints, tendons, or ligaments of the affected area. The area injected will result in a local inflammation. This inflammation generates process of healing wound and results in new collagen deposition, which is the building block of tendons and ligaments. When the new collagen matures, it will shrink. As the collagen shrinks, it constricts the ligaments, making it tougher.
