Ongoing Research Participation
We enroll our patients in ongoing research protocols and data system for collection & analysis of best outcome results from therapies. We keep records of procedures performed in our outcomes database & in shared and published databases. Patients are always treated with the best protocols & treatments based on the latest research data & informed consent on investigational nature of treatments. Strict sterile protocols & universal precautions are followed by out office and staff.
Treatments at other Clinics :
"Patch up" treatments like, addicting pain medications, Steroid injection, surgery (many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer from NSAIDs.)
May not know how to use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection. May use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections instead of ultrasound.
PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) not used to enhance the effects of Stem Cells.
May not offer option of different bone stem cell types. (only offer drilling bones or low quality umbilical stem cells.)
May use poorly trained non-physician assistants to evaluate & perform injections.
Not FDA compliant.
Treatments at Our Clinic :
Treating the root cause of the problem by regenerating and repairing the damaged regions. Good safety profile with body products from own body.
Precision ultrasound guided injection to joints without any radiation to ensure safe delivery of stem cells & PRP to the correct location. (Shown to increase positive results by 20-40% vs. without ultrasound)
Other modalities like PRP & Sonic Wave use to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint.
Several types of stem cell including Adipose (fat), bone marrow and umbilical cord derived options available.

1. A Systematic Review of Dextrose Prolotherapy for Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
The goal of this study by Hauser et al. was to perform a systematic review
2. Prolotherapy injections for chronic low back pain
The goal of this study by Yelland et al. was to determine the effectiveness of prolotherapy injections in adults with chronic low back pain. Studies have shown that low back pain arises from damaged or weakened ligaments. It is believed that repeated injections with irritant solutions could strengthen the ligaments and reduce
Review & Testimonials/Case Examples
“After just one Prolotherapy treatment I felt immediate improvement. After five treatments, my neck is fantastic and I am virtually pain-free. My posture has improved, and I feel stronger. I no longer have low back pain, the pain down my leg is gone, and my ankle has more bounce and doesn’t click like it used to.”

“I am receiving treatment for severe osteoarthritis of right ankle.
I have previously consulted two surgeons and was a considered a candidate for ankle fusion with no cartilage left in my ankle. . My mobility problems was getting severe but ankle fusion was terrifying due to permanent lame condition that would result with a “successful” outcome to control pain.
I have been treated with PRP followed 6 weeks later by autologous stem cells from fatty tissue taken from my mid-riff, then PRP again after another 6 weeks.
5 months after the initial treatment I have improved greatly with regard to pain and functioning of my ankle. I used to walk with difficulty, for limited distances and use a cane. Now I only use a cane if I am going for a very long walk or a hike.”
Introduction About the Topic
Prolotherapy is basically a therapy that helps with the repair of ligaments. It is also referred to as proliferation therapy or regenerative injection therapy.
Prolotherapy is targeted at injured connective tissues and joints. It also treats people suffering from conditions such as whiplash, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease. Prolotherapy treats several areas of the human body, including the neck, pelvic floor, knees, back, hips, shoulders, and
Prolotherapy is a safe procedure. However, studies are ongoing about its overall effectiveness.
HOW DOES PROLOTHERAPY TREAT PAIN?
In prolotherapy, watery injections are given to relieve pain. Components of this injection include saline, dextrose, sarapin, and lidocaine (or any other numbing agent). Prolotherapy differs from platelet-rich plasma in that it doesn’t require stem cells from the patient. It also differs from cortisone and steroid injections. Board-certified doctors at our facility will administer the injection at a targeted area in the site of injury. This will trigger the healing response from your body. The result of this is development of new and healthy tendon fibers, and ligaments. Thus, the intensity of pain and stiffness reduces, resulting in improved strength, function, and joint mobility.
Multiple treatments may be used to stimulate growth of new tissues.
Because prolotherapy stimulates the growth of tissues. Board-certified doctors at our facility will ensure that you’re fit for the treatment. They’ll also ensure that you are aware of any chronic condition that you may have even if they appear not to have any relationship to the injury at hand.
ARE THERE ANY RISKS INVOLVED IN PROLOTHERAPY?
Prolotherapy has lesser risks compared to surgery. With prolotherapy, you’re not subjected to prolonged hospital stays or general anesthesia. There’s a shorter recovery period, and the chance of infection is significantly decreased.
HOW DO WE PERFORM PROLOTHERAPY AT OUR FACILITY?
Prolotherapy takes at most 30 minutes or even less in some cases. This includes prep upon your arrival at the facility. After the doctor has prepped you with a local anesthetic, you’ll be injected carefully in the affected areas.
After treatment, you’ll be made to rest. Heat packs will be placed on the treated regions for about 15 minutes. Thereafter, you may take your leave.
Current Treatment at Other Clinics
The current treatment methods for degenerative diseases have their drawbacks: opioids have a number of side effects, and are a bit dangerous. Surgery alters the natural structure of the body (and sometimes may be unsuccessful). Injections on its own is quite beneficial to many patients, but have little to no effect at the cellular level nor do they encourage self-repair.
We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP. Other clinics may not use ultrasound during the injections which is very critical in ensuring a safe & accurate injection. They may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell. They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options. They also may use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections that can be easily avoided in most cases by using ultrasound. Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how PRP & Sonic wave (ESWT) can enhance the effects of Stem Cells. These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole joint and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the joint.
Safe Non Surgical Option
We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage. We use a careful combination of Stem Cells, PRP and Sonic Waves (ESWT) as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body. These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA. They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.
What Does ESWT, PRP & Stem Cell Therapy Do?
The researchers believe that the therapy works by:
Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage to cartilage and reduce pain and inflammation.
Preventing inflammation that can make osteoarthritis worse.
Creating healthy new cartilage tissues.
Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.
What makes our facility special?
At our Los Angeles facility, we have invented modern approaches to orthopedic care. Our approach to treatment is second to none. The harvesting process does not involve any form of drilling, and the stem cells are purified and tested for quality before injection. We also employ ultrasound to help in the precise placement of high dose stem cells at the required site. These cells will then perform their duty, promoting the formation of new tissues. Please note that this process only occurs if the cells have been injected to the exact site. We are experts in this and has seen positive outcome with our treatments. Our licensed physicians have undergone intense training running into thousands of hours, and so, you can be sure that you are in safe hands.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is prolotherapy?
This is a therapy that involves injection of an irritating solution precisely at the affected site. The solution creates an inflammatory reaction at the point where ligaments and tendon meet the bones. This increases the strength in the attachment areas thus minimizing pain and improving function in the joints.
How long does it take to heal?
Depending on your health, you may heal anytime between 3-5 weeks. This is quite short compared to a lifetime of disability and pain.
How many prolotherapy treatments do I need?
This depends on how severe the injury is. In some cases, symptoms may resolve quickly after just one or two injections. However, on
Who is eligible for prolotherapy?
People who have localized joint pain or have suffered an injury recently will typically benefit from prolotherapy.
