I'm scheduled for a knee replacement on March 10, but just heard about the Prolozone shot. Has anyone had a Prolozone shot, and did you have success?
@janor, Welcome @janor, to Connect. And no I have not had a Prolozone shot. However, I did find some information that may be helpful. It does appear that this treatment is recommended pre-surgery on knees. Let me know if this information is at least knocking on the door. Have you asked your surgeon the purpose of the Prolozone? March 10 isn't far off. When is the shot scheduled?
Be safe and protected, Chris
Prolotherapy for bilateral hamstring tendonitis?
I have bilateral hamstring tendonitis (along with some calcification of the tendon where it meets the ischial tuberosity). I’ve tried PT with a pelvic floor specialist, acupuncture, steroid injection, chiropractic treatment and soft tissue mobilization (Hawk Grips and Graston Technique). None of those worked, so I have an appointment for a prolotherapy injection at the end of the January. Has anyone had experience with prolotherapy – success or complications?
@lgerkin You will see that I have moved your question into a previous discussion on Prolozone Injections. I did this so you could more quickly connect and get support. You will notice members like @janor @artscaping have already posted information on this topic.
May I ask what your provider has said about the injections?

Thank you! I do believe that prolotherapy is different than prolozone injections. Prolotherapy uses a different solution and has a stronger inflammatory response, which is one of my concerns since I haven't responded to the instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization techniques, in fact, they made the area more irritated. I"m going to follow up with my provider about whether prolozone would be more appropriate though.
