Regenerative Injection Therapies

WellVitality Health Clinic Lethbridge Services Regenerative Injection Therapies Page

Regenerative injection therapies, or REITs, are a type of medical treatment that utilizes injections of natural compounds to promote healing and repair in the body. These therapies work by stimulating the growth and regeneration of damaged tissue and cells, which can help to relieve pain and treat chronic conditions like arthritis and joint injuries.

Different regenerative injection therapies are available, delivering specific types of natural compounds into the affected areas. One of the critical benefits of regenerative injection therapies is that they can help promote healing in areas that are often difficult or even impossible to treat with traditional medicine.

What is Prolotherapy, and how can it help

Prolotherapy is a minimally invasive injection technique that uses a simple dextrose and lidocaine solution to treat torn tendons, ligaments, and damaged joint capsules. This solution stimulates the body’s natural healing response, helping to promote tissue growth and repair. Whether you are experiencing chronic pain or recovering from an injury, prolotherapy may help you find relief and regain mobility and quality of life.

At WellVitality Health Clinic, our team can work with you to assess your condition and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

Prolotherapy is an effective treatment for chronic pain caused by damaged ligaments and tendons. Unlike conventional therapies, such as NSAIDs and cortisone injections, this method encourages the body’s natural healing processes through inflammation.

When you sustain damage to a joint or other body parts, the area will typically experience inflammation as part of the healing process. However, suppressing this inflammation can only temporarily relieve pain without promoting long-term tissue repair. In contrast, prolotherapy uses targeted injections to stimulate healing and promote long-term pain relief.

Whether your pain stems from injury or degenerative conditions like arthritis, prolotherapy offers a safe, effective alternative to surgery or harsh medications. So if you’re looking for a more permanent solution to your chronic pain, give prolotherapy a try today.

Three to six treatments for a given area is average, though it may be as few as two or as high as ten treatments in three to six-week intervals.

The therapy requires an injection in the affected area, which is generally accompanied by some discomfort; this varies from patient to patient. A local anesthetic is used to numb the area before treatment, and most patients tolerate treatments very well. There is always a risk anytime a needle is used to penetrate the skin. Complications are rare; however, since it is a procedure with some risk to the patient, all patients are asked to read and sign a consent and waiver form before the process.

Each patient is different, and your results will be unique to you. Some patients report improvement of their chronic pain in as little as two weeks; others may only receive the benefit once further treatments occur. Improvements may continue for up to three years after the last treatment.

Generally, one may return on the same day as your treatment unless your job stresses the affected area. Stiffness and soreness can be expected as the healing process begins. Do not take anti-inflammatory medicines following the treatments, as this will interfere with the process.
