Dr. Bastien, our naturopathic physician, offers prolotherapy at our Brooksbank location.

What is prolotherapy? It is a safe and effective injection therapy used to treat connective tissue injuries and chronic pain nearly anywhere in the body. To heal an injured ligament or tendon, a solution of dextrose (sugar) and procaine (anesthetic) is injected into the damaged structure. Many chronic pain conditions such as back pain, sciatica, sports injuries, headaches, and tendonitis can be treated with prolotherapy.

For more information, check out Dr. Bastien's bio on our website nssm.ca, or give us a call at Brooksbank at (604) 973 0242.
