NPT- Neuro Proliferation Therapy
Neuro Proliferation Therapy (NPT) is the approach our physicians take in order to attack immediate headache flare-ups and severe pain. By using Dextrose, the physician allocates and isolates the pain, by decreasing the inflammation in the patient; the results are almost immediately. Your pain will ultimately dictate whether neuro-prolotherapy is right for you.
If our doctors can find direct, measurable damage to one of your joints or tendons, we’ll recommend treating the damage directly. However, if we can’t find any damage, and if other facts in your history and symptoms indicate that the pain is nerve-based, neuro-prolotherapy may be the effective treatment you’ve been looking for. In some instances, your pain may be the result of many different factors, and you may need a mixture of different treatments carefully choreographed to fit your needs.
Our Houston doctors have used neuro-prolotherapy to treat all of the following:
- Knee Pain
- Shoulder Pain
- Neck Pain
- Hip Pain
- Muscle Injuries
- Tennis Elbow
- Bell’s Palsy
- Face Pain
- And others
Proliferation Therapy (PROLO) uses a mild irritant solution (usually consisting of various sugars) that we inject directly into the damaged or painful joint, creating a small, controlled inflammation. This controlled inflammation is a reparative type or proliferative type. The therapy triggers your body to heal the original damage that originated the pain or inflammation. Your body regenerates new and shields, whole tissue, and you experience less pain and better function. This therapy approach is performed every 4-6 weeks. Each patient achieves different results depending on the severity of the pain.
