An Alternative to Pain

By Pete Williams

Franchi

Endurance athletes deal with all sorts of pain, from acute to chronic, and often times the solutions are neither simple nor permanent.

That’s why the injection-based prolotherapy process has become a popular alternative for many athletes. It involves injecting an otherwise non-pharmacological and non-active solution into the body around the tendons and ligaments to strengthen weakened connective tissue and alleviate musculoskeletal pain.

Albert Franchi, a New England area orthopedist who is the team physician for Bentley University and a leader in the field of prolotherapy, joined us to discuss the procedure on today’s episode of The Fitness Buff Show.
