Who Is A Good Candidate For Prolopuncture?
A good “Prolopuncture candidate”, is one in which the patient has suffered a degeneration or accidental trauma to the connective tissue or soft tissue of a joint or the ligaments and/or tendons that stabilize the joint. This would include but not only be specific to patients with:
- Lateral epicondylitis, medial epicondylitis (tennis/golfer’s elbow)
- Rotator cuff injuries, including supraspinatus tendinosis, rotator cuff impingement syndromes, and calcific tendinitis, also glenoid fossa osteoarthritis
- Knee injuries, including lax or partially torn cruciate ligaments, torn or degenerative meniscus and cartilage, enthesopathy (origin and insertion injuries to tendons and ligaments), as in injuries to the tibiofibular ligaments
- Osteoarthritic changes to the knees, including chondromalacia patellae and degenerative osteoarthritis of the cartilage and meniscus
- Partial tears of tendons, ligaments and/or muscles.
- Plantar fasciitis and tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Arthritic changes to small joints of the fingers and toes
- Costochondritis, costovertebral ligament laxity and hyper-mobile ribs
- Hip injuries, including torn labrum, and/or lax or partially torn ligaments
Prolopuncture stimulates healing with creating “fibrous tissue,” in soft tissue injuries. This healing response occurs because the injection of the Dextrose solution into the injured tissue stimulates the body’s own fibroblasts to migrate into the affected area and rebuild the damaged and frayed tissue. The Prolopuncture solution is made of a compound which causes proliferation of connective tissue. Ligaments, tendons, meniscus, cartilage, labrum, and joints have a notoriously poor blood supply and are difficult to heal. It is recommended not to do anything that would strain or irritate the area trying to heal. Irritating the affected area can be compared to picking a scab on a wound; the wound will eventually heal but will take a lot longer. It might even require additional Prolopuncture. It is in the patient’s best interest to act as if the area were like when one has a broken bone; although soft tissue injuries are harder to heal than hard tissue (like bone). So, having this mindset will help the healing process. If you had an open wound and you kept sticking your finger in it; it would take longer to heal. It’s always better to be “safe than sorry.” During the Prolo treatments, one’s activity level should be no more 25%. The body only has so much energy and if you are spreading that energy thin by doing other activities, that’s less energy the body has to heal.
