How Many Treatments Are Needed, And How Might You Respond?
It will often take a series of RIT treatments spaced at appropriate intervals to maximize the healing power of the body. Sometimes a patient’s body is incapable of generating an appropriate healing response because of other factors such as deficient nutritional support. These factors are addressed in conjunction with RIT treatment so that the maximum benefit can be made with each session.
The response to treatment varies with each individual and the extent of trauma to the ligament, tendon or cartilage, as well as individual rates of healing; results are not guaranteed. Some people require a few treatments (I.E. 3 to 6) while others may need 10 or more. Once you begin treatment, you will be able to assess how you are responding.
Wound strength studies show that it takes 6-12 months for maximum tensile strength to occur without prolotherapy and even then the resultant wound has approximately 60% of the original strength. With a treatment every 2 weeks, prolotherapy healing can occur in 1-2 months. Prolotherapy can be combined with Ultrasound, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Laser therapy, Chiropractic treatments, Homeopathy, and nutritional supplements to obtain the best results. To understand if prolotherapy could be helpful in your case, speak with your naturopathic doctor.
