Re: Hello! New here question about PM and Prolotherapy
Hello, Welcome to the board. I haven't had personal experience with prolotherapy but know a few people who have. I have heard both ends of the spectrum. For some, it has helped and for others, it hasn't. I think it all depends on the person and the type of pain one has. We all respond differently to different treatments.
Have you explained to your doc that you have some real reservations? I can understand why you would. Some docs are very pro injection and some aren't. I know that as pain patients, we have the right to refuse a treatment for any reason we might have. If your doc is really pressuring you, or worse, withholding other treatment, then maybe it's time for a new PM doc.
I wish I could give you a better answer, but maybe there is someone here who has had personal experience, and can tell you more. Best of luck and please keep us posted. Take care, CMP/MM
