Dr. Fields (MD, DC) explains the dangers of anti-inflammatory to treat long term joint pain. Dr. Fields recommends a much less risky and far more affective treatment known as Prolotherapy. Prolotherapy is a natural non-surgical method of assisting the body to heal injured or weakened joints, ligaments and tendons. With Prolotherapy, the weakened areas are injected with a proliferant that stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. As the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and vibrant, the pain is alleviated.
