Abstract

Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative disorder, and one of the major causes of physical disability in adults. Unfortunately many people experience arthroplasty or other major surgeries, in spite of improvements of the conservative options. There is a need for efficient treatment methods in this group of patients. Prolotherapy is one of the simple and safe injection-based complementary method and it’s efficiency was proved in the musculoskeletal problems. The aim of this article is to present current perspectives of prolotherapy in osteoarthritis.
