PROLOTHERAPY IS A NON-SURGICAL OPTION FOR SPORTS INJURY! With Prolotherapy, you can
keep training, get back in the game/event quickly, no down time, no long rehab required, alternative to the much-feared often career-ending surgeries...
Post-Hip Dislocation (Continued)
recommend Prolotherapy after
any joint dislocation occurs. If the athlete desires to get back
to athletics as soon as possible, then weekly or biweekly Prolotherapy
is given, and often with strong proliferant solutions. Often, after
just a few Prolotherapy sessions, workouts may begin. A total of
four to six Prolotherapy sessions are usually required to resolve
the joint weakness. Prolotherapy, in this case, can speed the recovery
process, allowing an athlete to return to playing sooner than with
the traditional route. More importantly, the athlete comes back with
a stronger hip.
It is common for athletes, especially in high-velocity sports such
as football, rugby, and soccer, to sustain fractures of the pelvis,
ilium, sacrum, coccyx, hip, or for that matter, anywhere in the body.
Generally, the fractures heal well. One thing that is commonly forgotten,
however, is that when the bone is fractured, so are blood vessels,
ligaments, and tendons. The persistent pain and/or weakness that
occur after fractures are often a result of ligamentous structures
that never healed. If an athlete sustained such a force to fracture
a bone, it can be assumed that ligament damage also occurred. Once
the cast is removed, in our opinion it is advisable for the athlete
to receive Prolotherapy to the injured ligaments. Ligaments have
a terrible blood supply compared to the bones. Even if the bone heals,
there is no guarantee that the ligaments will also heal. As a matter
of fact, it is more likely, in such a case, that the ligaments will
not heal completely.
Ross Hauser, MD demonstrates a typical Prolotherapy
procedure to a hip, as done at Caring Medical and Rehabilitation
Services in Oak Park, Illinois. Dr. Hauser treats patients
from around the globe with Hackett-Hemwall Prolotherapy and
has found it is an excellent alternative to hip surgery,
including hip replacement, hip resurfacing, and hip arthroscopy,
in addition to offering permanent solution for chronic pain
typically not seen with traditional anti-inflammatory treatment,
such as NSAIDs and cortisone injections. If you would like
to see our other videos on Prolotherapy, or would like to
email Dr. Hauser to see if Prolotherapy can help your hip
pain, please visit www.caringmedical.com. Prolotherapy can
be successful in treating almost all chronic hip pain conditions
and injuries, including: sports injuries, osteoarthritis,
hip degeneration, tendon injury, ligament injury, snapping
hip, and labral tear.
