    Hi out there,

    Is anyone out there currently using 5% glucose as perineural prolotherapy, and if so, are you anaesthetising the skin with lignocaine first or just using small gauge needles to minimise patient pain.

    Only anaesthetise tender areas in the feet. I don't anaesthetise more proximally.

    I use prolotherapy with 12% + dextrose for ligament and tendon/arthritic degeneration with anaesthesia. I also use neuro-fascial prolo with 5% dextrose, without anaethesia as the injections are so superficial it isn't necessary. NFP is not very invasive and can improve pain points almost instantly.

    Good luck

    Dear All

    Dr. Michael Yelland from Queensland did the most amazing 3 year follow up double blinded study on over 300 souls with chronic back pain of an average 14 years duration.
    12 injection were used, either 50% dextrose in N. saline with L/A or simply N. saline with L/A.

    The injections were put into their sore spot in the lower back.

    They were followed up for 3 years with an almost zero loss to follow up (unique in this alone)

    64% got better. There is no other study for the treatment of back pain that comes close to this outcome.

    When they broke the code there was NO difference between the groups.

    What actually is happening is simply the metal in the needle is deactivating those chemicals that activate the free nerve endings.
    These include subs P, adrenaline, serotonin? and others.

    This is why leaving acupuncture needles in sore spots for an hour (nothing else) This has a dramatic effect on a patients pain no matter where it is.
    Been doing this for 24 years and have no intention of quitting.

    a beautiful sunny day down the south coast.
    good luck with your USA hurricanes

    There is no need for anesthesia. If you use anesthesia in the same area you will be diluting the dextrose. I was taught by Dr. Lyftogt who is in New Zealand. He does not use anesthesia anywhere in the body.

    These injections are just below the skin. You can use a short 27 gauge or 30 gauge needle with minimal pain.
