It’s that time of year! We are heading into cooler weather, lots of holiday events, delicious treats full of sugar, and busier schedules, all of which increase our exposure and risk of getting sick.

Prolotherapy is a Regenerative Injection Technique (RIT) that helps to stimulate repair of damaged or weakened joints, ligaments, and tendons.
