Dextrose Injection Therapy

Dr. Steven Meier
Dextrose Injection Therapy (DIT)

Dextrose Injection Therapy is a form of Prolotherapy that consists of injecting a glucose solution directly into an injured or irritated joint to stimulate collagen formation necessary for tissue healing. Once inside, the body treats this solution as a foreign invader and begins to send white blood cells to defend itself from this irritant. In turn, these white blood cells strengthen soft tissue, tendons, ligaments, collagen, and cartilage.

Perineural Injection Treatment (PIT) is an advanced injection therapy technique which has been used in regenerative medicine clinical practice for over six decades. Combined with his expertise, Dextrose Injection Therapy has been found to be very safe and highly successful, with a favorable side effect profile.

How It Works

To initiate the body’s natural regenerative processes, DIT is injected directly into the damaged tissue of a patient. It can also be injected near or around an affected area in order to stimulate new blood vessels and muscle formation and/or the release of cytokines, which creates a protective environment to help keep scarring to a minimum.

DIT injections are relatively painless and can be administered in a doctor's office under local anesthesia.

Promotes faster healing and recovery

DIT has been known to increase collagen growth at site of wound improving its healing time.

No significant risks and side effects
