The website that JHollywood posted is mine. GluteusGigantis, what proof do you have that prolotherapy done properly is snake oil? I have to agree that some doctors are terrible at it, but others have developed their techniques to the utmost and they are highly effective. The doctor who treats me with prolotherapy was an orthopedic surgeon for 35 years and said my SC joints were the most unstable he had ever seen. Many treatments later, they are much, much more stable. There is no placebo effect taking place when your collar bone doesn’t pop out of your sternum anymore when doing the same movements as before.

I think prolotherapy is highly overused for various injuries or even ailments. I think that’s why it’s snake oil when used in those cases.
If you look at the first google search on prolotherapy, that doctor claims to cure so many different ailments, but provides no peer reviewed studies on it.
