I don’t remember the pain from prolotherapy for very long because the relief of pain from the chronic problems I have had in different areas come so quickly. My latest treatment for my right shoulder is an excellent case in point. I don’t remember the shots hurting so much during the first 24 hours. I know that the pain is not pleasant, but this time the pain seemed deep. I almost regretted the treatment.
And then after more than 6 months of not being able to sleep on my right side, the following night I did just that. The pain from the shots had subsided and the pain from the chronic injury was also subsiding. Who wouldn’t trade 24 hours of pain to relieve pain that had been near constant for more than 6 months.
It has now been almost a month since that treatment and I don’t really remember how bad either pain was. I do know that my shoulder feels a lot better though. There is no doubt in my mind that prolotherapy works wonders.
