Are You A Prolotherapy Candidate?

Prolotherapy candidates often possess many, if not all, of the below 10 criterion. Not possessing all 10 criterion, does not exclude you from being a good Prolotherapy candidate. For the person with poor range of motion (less than 75% of normal) or an abnormal MRI, it may be that Prolotherapy is still a great treatment. In those situations, we recommend you make an appointment for an evaluation.
