Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) July 17, 2009 -- To educate the patient population about the advantages and benefits of Prolotherapy for pain management, Dr. Marc Darrow, M.D. a leading Prolotherapy physician, has launched www.ProlotherapyInstitute.com.
âChronic Pain is a global epidemic that can be treated by alternative approaches without invasive surgery,â notes Dr. Darrow, an Associate Clinical Professor at UCLA Medical School and Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Prolotherapy is a simple, natural technique that stimulates the body to repair itself. A Prolotherapist injects a non-toxic substance into the bodyâs affected ligaments, tendons, or joints, which leads to local inflammation. According to studies, the localized inflammation triggers a wound healing cascade, resulting in the deposition of new collagen and cartilage to rejuvenate the body. Prolotherapy treatment is used from head to toe to eliminate pain in necks, backs, knees, shoulders, legs, feet, ankles and wrists.
âI was fairly skeptical when I first learned of Prolotherapy,â noted Dr. Darrow, âHowever, I became very enthusiastic about this non-surgical pain treatment when it cured my own shoulder and wrist pain.â
Today, Dr. Darrow has treated thousands of patients with Prolotherapy in his Los Angeles, California clinic. Some of his clients include professional athletes like Brett Miller, former tackle for the San Diego Chargers.
âI had five Prolotherapy injections by Dr. Darrow over a three-month period in my left knee,â notes Miller, âI am happy and surprised to say that I am now 100% pain free.â
