Sports Medicine – Prolotherapy Calgary
Prolotherapy is a treatment for weak, torn or painful ligaments and tendons. It involves injecting anesthetic and glucose into those ligaments or tendons. It immediately stimulates healing of weak ligaments or tendons, and this healing occurs over the coming months. These injections are repeated for several visits about 1 month apart, each visit building on the last, anywhere from 2 – 6 times. Payment is not provided by Alberta Health Care, and is rarely covered under private insurance plans. The costs can vary from ~$150 for a brief treatment session to $500* for an extended session.
Several other treatment options are also available, please visit our Sports Medicine page to learn more.
