Anyone Done Prolotherapy?

Torn between a high amount of scepticism towards anything alternative, and a strong urge to correct subluxated shoulder and torn RC… has anyone done prolotherapy, and what are your experiences?

Hey Carandrew,

I had prolotherapy and had a very negative experience from it (I got it from the guy who wrote the newest book on it too). The shots caused damaged to surrounding tissue that I’m still trying to recover from. I wouldn’t do it. Also, check this out: http://www.curezone.com/forums/am.asp?i=423182&s=1

If you do decide to get it, I would highly recommend that you DONT sign any waivers prior to the injections. If something goes wrong, you have to protect yourself.

If you need more info, let me know.

my PT boss at work did. He’s had good success with it so far.
