Efficacy of One Day Training in Low-Cost Manual Preparation of High Cellular Platelet Rich Plasma

K. Dean Reeves, MD, Noel S. Peterson, ND, DAAPM, Volume 6 : 2014

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is under investigation as a therapeutic injectate in a growing number of applications. Its production commonly involves proprietary materials and proprietary centrifuges. Manual PRP production has been described but training efficacy has not been demonstrated. A method to manually produce high quality PRP quickly, inexpensively and consistently, that is easily mastered, would afford the opportunity …

Neural Prolotherapy for Neuralgia

Brian Browning, DO, Eileen Conaway, DO, Volume 6 : 2014

Mononeuralgia is pain along the distribution of a single peripheral nerve. Single nerve neuralgia is often caused by compression or other damage to the nerve, although in many cases a specific cause is not apparent. In instances where a structural cause is identified and corrected, patients may continue to experience pain in the affected nerve due to facilitation. This paper will discuss Neural Prolotherapy as a potential treatment for mononeuralgia by demonstrating cases of successful treatments for trigeminal neuralgia and meralgia paresthetica.

Welcome to the Journal of Prolotherapy®

The Journal of Prolotherapy® is a peer-reviewed journal with the purpose of providing the readers with new, cutting-edge information on Prolotherapy, as well as provide a forum for physicians and patients alike to tell their stories.

As of 2012, all issues of the Journal of Prolotherapy are FREE to access online.

Why the Journal of Prolotherapy®?

Our mission is to educate the world about the life-changing effects of Prolotherapy. Like you, we want more people to know that there is hope to get out of chronic pain and that hope is Prolotherapy.

When a person finds out about Prolotherapy for the first time, they often say or think “why haven’t I heard of this before?” JOP is doing their best to make sure everyone in chronic pain has at least heard about Prolotherapy. The skeptics of Prolotherapy often say that research is lacking. To put more of it out there, we continue to print in electronic and paper journal format, the experiences of doctors and patients with Prolotherapy. The whole journal revolves around the regenerative injection technique known as Prolotherapy.

JOP believes that it is important to get both the doctors’ and the patients’ perspectives. We believe that the greatest evidence for the effectiveness of Prolotherapy is not going to come from a “double-blind scientific study” but from the millions of changed lives from Prolotherapy. In essence, almost every patient that gets Prolotherapy proves that Prolotherapy works.

Most folks who get Prolotherapy have a chronic degenerative condition. These conditions are supposed to get worse with time. When such a person receives Prolotherapy and their condition subsequently reverses, as evidenced not only by the relief of pain, improvement in activity level, decrease in medication usage and usage of other health care for their pain, but also by X-ray and MRI improvement, this, in our opinion, is definitive proof that Prolotherapy does, indeed, regenerate structures.

With your help, we hope to continue to change lives. We want to get people back to sports, back to being active and without pain, back to being the kind of people they wish to be! We see hundreds, thousands, even millions of people getting out of pain because they received the life-changing effects of Prolotherapy. We believe that this is a cause worth fighting for! We hope you will join the fight by subscribing to JOP, writing articles, case studies, even your own experience with Prolotherapy, and get others on this crusade. Together educating the world about a successful treatment for chronic pain…and that treatment is Prolotherapy!
