Many Possibilities: Prolotherapy typically by itself will cause ligaments to tighten up, usually due to scarring or fibrosis of the ligaments. However now prolotherapy is used to introduce new blood supply to the area and then many times following it with the prp and/or stem cells in the area can repair the tissue/ligaments by the hopes that the stem cells regenerate the same normal tissue type.

Thumb pain: A couple of thoughts... It could be an overuse injury, a tendonitis, it could be a flare up of arthritis caused by a previous injury. In these situations, i usually try to first rest the hand - no trying to "test" it to see if it hurts, or do any lifting or repetitive motions. I take Ibuprofen and see how it goes over a day or two.
