Has anyone had any experience with prolotherapy for a knee injury?

Looks like a minimally invasive treatment for a knee injury.  Looked at a video, and think I would try this in place of surgery for my torn meniscus, if it gets to that point.  Has to be a lot better than taking anti-inflammatory meds for an extended period too.

Well I'm trying it to see if it will help a medial miniscus tear. A bit more affordable 150.00 per series of injection than what surgery would be.
N.D. suggests three treatments to see how it goes.
