Is it true the prolotherapy can cure osteroarthritis? How does it work if you have it in both hips and your hands?

In brief: Some say yes

Osteoarthritis is the gradual degeneration of joint surfaces, caused by overuse and under repair. Over time, this wear-and-tear of cartilage progresses to the point that the cartilage is worn thin and pain results.
Degenerative joint disease can progress to the point where the patient needs a total hip or knee replacement. Prolotherapy has been proven to reverse the degeneration of joints.
