CORE has led the way in regenerative treatments in Santa Cruz for years. With Prolotherapy, PRP, and Stem Cell regenerative injections we have helped thousands heal existing injuries, treated joints to prevent future injuries, slow or stop hair loss, rejuvenate skin, treat sexual health and function disorders, and more. But we do so much more in the way of making sure you get the most out of these treatments!
Prolotherapy: The Regenerative Injection Treatment
Prolotherapy is a process designed to elevate your body into a state of healing for a longer-than-normal period of time. In order to get maximal efficacy out of such a process, we recommend taking extra steps to help your body out in the system!
For one, there’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT. Richly oxygenating your air intake and bloodstream enables the platelets in the injection to proliferate and alter your tissue more thoroughly.
Additionally, we have a Vasper machine here at CORE. The Vasper isn’t your ordinary workout machine…it uses compression and cryotherapy to boost your body’s hormonal response during training. Helping aid the Prolotherapy process with its task of rejuvenating tissue.
Finally, we offer specific peptides (a chemical component of platelets) as supplements. These will act as reinforcements to your body’s natural inflammation and repair response stimulated by the prolotherapy.
Altogether, in conjunction with other integrative services like exercise, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, create the unique, whole-body healing system of the CORE Advantage.

Medical professionals who support the use of prolotherapy believe that the strengthened joints will mean the pain is reduced. Also, the improved strength of the joint will help with stability and improve overall movement and function of the back and joints.
Prolotherapy is an all-natural, permanent treatment, as it relies on the body repairing itself to reduce pain.
In contrast, pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications only provide temporary relief. Similarly, surgical options do not always work to stabilize a joint fully.
Risks and side effects
There have been few reported side effects from prolotherapy. In rare cases, the worst side effect is an infection at the site of an injection. A potential infection will show through fever and pain, and it is usually easy to treat with antibiotics.
Another side effect may be temporary swelling or pain where the injection occurred. Immediately following the procedure, the affected joint may feel worse before beginning to feel better.
Prolotherapy has not been researched extensively. This may mean that there are side effects that have yet to be discovered.
