Prolotherapy

Just wanted to know if any of you guys heard of Prolotherapy. i was searching for something to help with a nagging shoulder pain I have. I came across Prolotherapy. The idea: they inject your afflicted joint witha glucose solution which acts as an irritant in the joint, which makes the body sending all those healing properties (white blood cells, etc), which makes the tendons, ligaments and cartilage become stronger, theraby elimainating the pain. They said Dr. Koop had this therapy for his back and it was the only thing that helped him. If it works sounds awesome for everyone.
