Prolotherapy / Injection Therapy

Prolotherapy, short for "proliferative therapy," is a non-surgical treatment option that can be effective in addressing chronic musculoskeletal pain, including foot and ankle issues. This therapy involves the injection of a natural solution, often a mixture of dextrose and local anesthetic, into damaged or weakened ligaments, tendons, or joints.

Prolotherapy works by stimulating the body's natural healing response. When the solution is injected into the targeted area, it triggers a mild inflammatory response, prompting the body to increase blood flow, repair tissue, and promote the growth of healthy new cells. Over time, this process strengthens and stabilises the affected area, reducing pain and improving function.

In podiatry, prolotherapy is often used to treat conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis. It offers a non-invasive alternative for patients who may be seeking pain relief and improved mobility without resorting to surgery. Prolotherapy is typically administered in a series of sessions, and the number of treatments varies based on the individual's condition and response to therapy.

If you are experiencing chronic foot or ankle pain and are seeking a non-surgical solution, prolotherapy may be an option worth exploring.

Perineural Injection Therapy

Perineural injection therapy, also known as neural prolotherapy or neurofascial prolotherapy, is a minimally invasive technique used to relieve chronic pain conditions related to nerves and fascia. It is particularly valuable in addressing nerve-related foot and ankle pain, providing a non-surgical alternative for patients seeking relief.

This therapy involves the injection of a natural solution, typically dextrose, near specific nerves or along the fascial planes that may be causing pain or discomfort. These injections are carefully administered to disrupt the pain signals being sent by irritated or inflamed nerves, which can occur due to various conditions, including neuropathy, nerve entrapment, or musculoskeletal injuries.

Perineural injection therapy is often sought after by patients experiencing conditions like Morton's neuroma, tarsal tunnel syndrome, or chronic nerve-related foot pain. The treatment can provide significant relief, reduce inflammation, and promote healing of damaged tissues. Many patients find that perineural injection therapy allows them to regain mobility and experience a higher quality of life without the need for surgery or ongoing medication.

If you are living with chronic foot or ankle pain related to nerve issues, perineural injection therapy may be a viable option for you. Our podiatry team is experienced in this innovative technique and can assess your condition to determine if it is an appropriate approach. We are dedicated to providing personalised treatment options that prioritise your comfort, mobility, and overall foot health. Your foot health is our priority, and we are here to guide you toward a more pain-free and active future through perineural injection therapy.
