Low back pain can often be caused by ligament injury, leading to instability of the lower lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint [SIJ]. Using hypertonic dextrose-based prolotherapy and/or platelet-rich plasma [PRP], these structures can be repaired, restoring stability to the lower back. This can be a very effective non-surgical approach to SIJ dysfunction in combination with PT, without the need for steroids or surgery. #prolotherapy#SIJ dysfunction #back pain #PRP#pain management #low back pain.
