When Should An Athlete Look To Get Treatment?

Athletes and Prolotherapy

Would you recommend an athlete do this in their off-season?

Oh yes. What you want to do with prolotherapy is give it time to heal. However, I’ve treated people in season. If they are still capable of playing and have just minor or moderate amounts of pain and I don’t think there’s any danger, I tell them to continue participating… which is really very good. Because when you get a cortisone injection, playing is really contraindicated, because you may rupture a tendon.
