It’s 30 – 30 in the third match and your opponent returns a high volley. The overhand kill shot is there for the taking. Victory is so close you can taste it. But, an excruciating twinge in your low back causes you to falter and you shank the shot out of bounds.
Does this sound familiar?
You’re not alone. From tennis and rowing to playing with your kids and getting a restful night’s sleep, low back pain can make routine activities a struggle.
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation found in its 2010, “Global Burden of Disease,” study that low back pain is the single leading cause of disability throughout the world.
Prolotherapy Can Significantly Reduce Low Back Pain
Luckily, you have options. Prolotherapy can help you reduce low back pain by healing torn and strained ligaments. A two-year study conducted by the Centre for General Practice and School of Population Health, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia found prolotherapy offered, “Significant and sustained reductions in pain and disability occur with ligament injections.”
Natural Treatment Stimulates Healing
Many patients believe their only chance of relief is surgery or heavy doses of pain medication. This isn’t the case. Surgery doesn’t guarantee results and it poses serious risks. Pain meds simply mask symptoms, often leading to additional damage to the injured area.

Fortunately, prolotherapy is a surgery- and medication-free alternative. This nearly 100-year-old treatment uses a slender needle to inject a natural “irritant” solution into the soft tissue that has been injured or torn from the bone. (Soft tissue includes ligaments, tendons, muscle, joint capsules, and fascia.)
The injection helps to stimulate a natural response within your body, which causes a physiological reaction to heal the area.
