Neurofascial Prolotherapy, also known as Perineural Injection Therapy and Subcutaneous Prolotherapy is a Regenerative Medicine treatment developed by John Lyftogt, M.D. in New Zealand. This treatment targets nerves lying just under the skin that are causing pain when they become irritated and inflamed due to injury, trauma or overuse. When a nerve becomes inflamed, it may not only cause pain in the skin, muscle and joint of the surrounding area, it may also cause degeneration of the surrounding shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, ankle, and spine. Dr. Lyftogt believes this is because nerves are involved in the health and regeneration of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage.
Neurofascial Prolotherapy uses the mini injection of 5% dextrose to the target those inflamed nerves located just beneath the skin that are responsible for the pain and degeneration. This causes an increased level of growth factors in the area to help restore the health of the nerve and begins a natural healing process. Once the nerve function is normalized, often the pain is immediately eliminated. This repair process is often needed to be repeated 5-8 times for long term relief of pain and for functional improvement. Many patients report 10-15% improvement per week.
