I'm going to get prolotherapy on my back in a couple days and if the pain is unbearable should I talk to my doctor or just take tylenol?
Is it safe to do prolotherapy on lower back without ultrasound guidance? The doctor is a prolotherapist it's all he does. Says he's done over 300k inj
Yes: Prolotherapy does not require ultrasound guidance, and actually for doctors with a "high end" skill set, ultrasound gets in the way. Injured tissue feels different to the touch by finger and also to the touch by needle. The doctor should be able to tell you where you are injured and tender by the feel of your tissue... www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doing prolotherapy on unstable si joints. What pt exercise can I do that won't stretch them to much and how much walking is ok?
Hope this works well: Prolotherapy has great potential for stabilizing your si joints, and I have seen impressive results, far better than surgical stabilization. Usually, your exercise activity should be suspended for at least 3-4 days following injections, but most exercises should be ok afterwards.

Why does my foot Achilles hurt worse all of a sudden after the last few prolotherapy shots? Could i be having a bad reaction?
PRP unreliable data: Prolotherapy injections (platelet rich plasma injections) have conflicting data that they benefit patients. Although some people do get benefit, it is only temporary and a lot of people don't have any benefit. Instead, the injections now may only be masking the severity of tendonitis in your achilles tendon. Make sure your doctor understands these injections are ineffective. You may need a new. ...Read more
