Prolotherapy for TMJ
Prolotherapy, also known as Regnerative Injection Technique, involves the injection of a diluted dextrose solution into the jaw joint in order to promote healing. Research shows that this technique can be used to help reduce pain originating from inflamed jaw joints, and also to help stabilize joints that exhibit hypermobility.
Typically, I recommend conservative Orthotic Therapy following my TMJ Rehab protocol first, before deciding if prolotherapy is right for you. Many times, patients experience such excellent results through TMJ Rehab, they decide not to go through with additional modalities such as prolotherapy.
In terms of the clicking jaw, prolotherapy has NOT been shown to reduce clicking and popping.
