Prolotherapy For Rotator Cuff Lesions – Study Results
Dr. Magaziner is excited to share a recent study, where a team of researchers investigated the effectiveness of prolotherapy in the treatment of chronic rotator cuff lesions. The results of the study are very exciting. Clinical assessment of shoulder function was performed using a visual analog scale (VAS) for pain, Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI), Western Ontario Rotatory Cuff (WORC) Index, patient satisfaction, and shoulder range of motion. Patients were examined at baseline, weeks 3, 6, and 12, and last follow-up (minimum of one year).
