Has anyone tried Prolozone therapy for hips
Jump to this post
Hello @grandmajudym and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! I am glad that you posted your question here about hip replacement and Prolozone therapy. Since I was not familiar with this type of therapy, I did a search on Google Scholar and found this article that might interest you. Here is the link that you can click on and get more information. https://evolvewithdesera.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Prolozone-Regenerating-Joints-and-Eliminating-Pain.pdf
There is another alternative therapy called Prolotherapy, which is mentioned on Mayo Clinic's website. Here is a link to that article, https://www.mayoclinic.org/prolotherapy/expert-answers/faq-20058347.
I have not heard of other Mayo Connect members who have discussed this, How did you hear about this type of therapy? Will you post again and let me know how you are doing with this decision?
Hi @grandmajudym and thank you for your comment. I second Teresa's welcome. You will notice that I moved your post to a discussion about pain before hip replacement and what to do about it. I did this so that you could connect with others members who are or have been experiencing similar issues.
I would definitely take a look at the article that @hopeful33250 has shared with you above.
Can you share with me anything else you have tried or what your doctor has suggested?
Please see my response to Teresa's email – as the news re: Dr. Schallenberger is rather alarming .
