Honduras Prolotherapy Trip Celebrates 50 Years

August 12, 2019 08:00 | Sandy Shimon (Administrator)

An annual service-learning experience that has close ties to the University of Wisconsin Department of Family Medicine and Community Health (DFMCH) celebrates its 50th year.

Since 1969, a team of physicians, nurses, learners and assistants—many affiliated with the DFMCH—have traveled to rural Honduras each March to provide free prolotherapy services for people with chronic musculoskeletal pain, and to teach prolotherapy to clinicians from around the world.

Prolotherapy is an injection-based outpatient therapy that’s has been practiced for over a century. It can help decrease the impact of chronic musculoskeletal pain due to osteoarthritis, overuse syndromes, trauma and sports injuries. The DFMCH has been a hub for clinical and research expertise in prolotherapy for decades.
