Like all injectable solutions used with Prolotherapy, we use them to aid in healing. Prolotherapy, whether traditional Hackett-HemwallProlotherapy (HHP), Stem Cell Prolotherapy (SCP), Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy (PRPP), or Bone Marrow Prolotherapy (BMP), the goal is the same: to stimulate the repair of injured tissues. Bone Marrow Prolotherapy not only helps the fibroblastic proliferation where the following occurs: proliferation of cells, proteosynthesis, reparation, and the remodeling of tissues, but also chondrocyte proliferation. Typically the tissues that we are trying to stimulate to repair with BMP are articular cartilage, but it can be soft tissues structures such as ligament and tendons.
Our ultimate goal is to form functionally, structurally, and mechanically equal to, if not better than, living tissue which has been designed to replace (or work alongside of) damaged tissue. It is hard to prove this last statement.* All we can report on, however, is whether the patients who receive SCP or BMP are able to get back to all of the activities and sports they love, without pain or disability? Why? Because we can’t sacrifice human beings after Prolotherapy to see if the tissue looks and acts normally.
