17 Jun 93 year old finds releif with PRP for OA or “bone on bone” knee.
This is a testimonial about a 93 year old man we treated early in 2009, who had Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections in his knee. He was diagnosed with sever osteoarthritis and meniscus derangement. His MRI and x-rays showed bone on bone. He was suggested to have knee surgery for total knee replacement by 2 orthopedics. After his first treatment he was having less or no pain and his function was much improved. Also helpful for ACL and PCL tears, Medial and lateral collateral tears, as an alternative to arthroscopic surgery and for other joints such as AC, SC, shoulder, ankle, elbow ( medial and lateral epicondylitis), lumbar, cervical disc, DJD of the spine, spondylolesthesis, stenosis of the spine, whiplash and other ligament disorders of the spine. If Chiropractic adjustments don’t hold. If spinal decompression hurts after this is usually needed. This patient golfs his age which is impressive seeing he’s 93. Filmed the day before his 93’rd birthday. Also an avid bowler. He also had great results with prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma therapy for his knee arthritis which he was recommended to have surgery or total knee replacement’s.
I specialize in joint regeneration using Prolotherapy using PRP and Dextrose solutions. I practice with a very talented Chiropractor who also evaluates our patients for joint stability and structural issues associated with damages joints and ligaments. We also find EWOT and Class 4 laser therapy helpful in our treatments to aid in the regenerative capacity. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or to set up a consultation at our office!

This is one of my favorite patients of all time!! He did so well with the laser and the PRP injections. Impressive at 93 yrs old I would say. Please pass this video on to all you grandparents and their freinds! The orthopedics are butchering them up like live stock!
