Examples of actual patient cases from our practices
Sciatica: A 43 year old female came into our office with complaints of debilitating low back pain that radiated down the back of her right leg for the past 6 months. She had seen two orthopedic surgeons who both had recommended surgery on what they thought was a damaged disc. After 3 series of prolotherapy treatments, 3 weeks apart, she recovered completely.
Rotator cuff tears: A 52 year old male came into the office with complaints of right sided shoulder pain that kept him up at night. He reported that the pain was identical to the shoulder pain that he had in his left shoulder 3 years ago that required rotator cuff surgery. Because the post operative pain was so severe, he did not want to have surgery. After 4 treatments of prolotherapy, the pain was gone. He recovered full range of motion in his injured shoulder and has been fine ever since.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: A 32 year old female had developed carpal tunnel syndrome during her pregnancy 2 years ago, that never resolved. The numbness and tingling was waking her up every night and was getting worse. Anti-inflammatory medicines and the cock up wrist splint did not work. After 5 treatments with prolotherapy, her pain was completely resolved. She has not had a recurrence since then.
Migraine Headaches: Multiple patients have come to the office with complaints of intractable migraine headaches. After a course of prolotherapy, their migraines have stopped, and they now can live normal lives.
Tennis elbow: A 38 year old postal worker had complaints of lateral epicondylitis going on 2 years. She had undergone 3 steroid injections in the past with limited success. After 2 treatments with prolotherapy, the pain was gone. 3 years later, the pain is still absent.
