Jointcare - Sclerosant Injections


Dr Jenny Turner uses sclerosant injections or prolotherapy to treat partial tendon tears. These can occur in many different tendons including the Achilles, peroneal and tibialis posterior tendons in the ankle, the patella tendon at the knee and the Hamstring and adductor tendons around the hip.

How do Sclerosant injections work?
Is the injection painful?
Are there any side effects?
What can I do after the injection?
Will I need any other investigations?
