Can anyone pleas offer me information about prolotherapy as a treatment for a (possibly sveral) herniated disc? I do realize it is not FDA approved, but that does not really phase as many FDA drugs are recalled and can kill you anyway. Looking for input from open minded drs. as well as people who may have used this treatment. From what I understand, it is the only treatment that (supposedly) helps rebulid the supportive structures around the back. Thank you.
