Prolotherapy is a highly specialized treatment procedure that is known by a variety of names, including:
- Proliferation therapy
- Regenerative injection therapy
- Proliferative injection therapy
- Reconstructive therapy
Prolotherapy was first used in the 1930s, and evolved to its current forms of practice in the 1950s. It is nonsurgical, and works by promoting the body to repair, stabilize, and strengthen joints, cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
Prolotherapy can be used to repair almost any area of the body, including:
- Head and neck
- Hand and wrist
- Ankle and foot

In addition to traditional prolotherapy treatment, we also offer several other more specialized forms of injective therapies, which are summarized below.
Prolozone therapy includes the use of ozone in the injection medicine. Ozone can help rebuild worn, damaged or torn ligaments and connective tissue in joints more quickly than standard (dextrose-based) prolotherapy solutions.
Neural therapy is often used in conjunction with prolotherapy to repair damaged nerves. By precisely injecting local anesthetics in and around specific nerves, nerve flow can be restored, providing immediate pain relief and increased motion and restored function.
PRP and stem cell therapies
PRP and stem cell therapies include the injection of a patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or new adult stem cells to specific areas that require treatment. These techniques are particularly useful for treating damaged bone and soft tissue disease or injury.
Mesotheraphy involves the use of precise injections into the middle layer of skin and tissue. As practiced by Dr. Nebbeling, this technique is used in conjunction with traditional prolotherapy to help promote the range of motion and function of specific joints.
