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.
