Can an Athlete Get Prolotherapy
During The Season and During Training?
How quickly does Prolotherapy work?
For someone who is healthy Prolotherapy can help stabilize a joint very quickly.
While ideally an athlete would get treated during the off season, many times
this is not possible. For the pro athlete or the athlete who has an important
competition coming up (like an Ironman competition), you need a treatment that
will work very quickly. Prolotherapy is such a treatment.
Recently we had two Ironman competitors in as patients. One was preparing
for the Ironman World Championships, another prepared for his first Ironman
race, but injuries made training properly impossible.
Both came to Caring
Medical for Prolotherapy, each had several visits before
their competition. The first had her knee done and the second his back. Both
completed the races, the second one in a time, 40 minutes faster than he thought
he would. His physical therapist, who referred him, said him finishing the
race would not have been possible without Prolotherapy.
Two NFL players have been flying into Caring
Medical to get Prolotherapy this
year. They go to practice the next day and play in the games on Sunday.
So for the athlete that wants to get back to competition quickly, Prolotherapy
is a great treatment option.
