What are your thoughts on the conflicting evidence of the efficacy of prolotherapy in many joint conditions?

Hi tfcoates. My experience tells me that Dextrose Prolotherapy works. I've been doing Prolotherapy for about a decade now and I can say that a great percentage of my patients with joint problems, especially those with osteoarthritis, get better with Prolotherapy. I believe successful treatment requires proper patient selection, patient education, an excellent Prolotherapy technique, orthotics if needed, adjunctive therapies, and a good doctor-patient relationship. Thank you for the question, tfcoates.

Thanks for the answer. It seems like a holistic approach is quite important then!
