X-Ray Guided Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is the injection of a proliferative agent which triggers a natural healing response. 

Needle injection

It has been successful in the treatment of many disorders including neck, shoulder, knee and ankle pain.  Dr. Centeno recently published an article in The Journal of Prolotherapy in which he discusses the use of x-ray guidance with prolotherapy.  This ensures that the injection is in the correct place to maximize clinical results.  Dr. Centeno discusses the use of prolotherapy for  the treatment of neck, knee, sacroillac joint, ankle, ischial tuberosity and shoulder pain.  At the Centeno-Schultz Clinic x-ray guided prolotherapy is just one of the  therapies utilized in the successful treatment of pain.
