Regenerative Injection Therapy(RIT), also known as Prolotherapy, is a minimally invasive injection procedure that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms to repair chronically damaged ligaments, tendons and fibrocartilage.
Regenerative Injection Therapy
In RIT the damaged ligament or tendon is injected with a substance that either directly or indirectly causes a small amount of local tissue irritation or inflammation. The resulting inflammation triggers the body’s natural repair processes to strengthen the existing tissue and to enhance the growth of new tissue. Other substances may also be injected, including Substrates (building blocks for collagen synthesis) and Growth Factors (chemical messengers that promote the healing response).
