Prolotherapy is the injection of a toxic substance in the area of the upper cervical spine. This is dangerous and the potential risks are very high. Of course, surgical fusion is also risky but in good hands, the surgeon is visualizing the surgical area carefully. With prolotherapy, the injectionist has a general idea where the caustic substance is going but it is not exact. An inadvertent injection into the vertebral artery can lead to no good.
