Prolotherapy

"The rehabilitation of, and incompetent structures such as a ligament, or a tendon, by the induced proliferation of new cells" (Webster's New International Dictionary). A ligament is a band of fibrous tissue that holds bones together. Just like a rubber band, a ligament can become "overstretched". The resulting laxity can cause severe pain as bones rub together, or muscles are overworked as they tighten in an attempt to stabilize the bones. Prolotherapy is a treatment where a proliferate solution of natural substances is injected directly into the site where the weakened ligament attaches to the bone. Injections trigger the body's own immune system to grow new and healthy tissue, which then properly stabilizes the bones and joints, relieving musculoskeletal pain and stiffness. Prolotherapy is one of the treatments of choice for chronic pain.

I don't want to
achieve immortality
