It’s a decision most of us will have to make sooner or later. Do you take the risks of surgery and possible prolonged recovery or do you try alternatives like Prolotherapy before considering surgery or joint replacement? Prolotherapy has little downtime and lower risk. Here are a couple of stories to consider …
Dallas M. (Age 32) Back — I had low back pain for approximately two years. Before I found my way to Dr. Kramer I had already seen 5 chiropractors, 3 physicians, and 3 physical therapists. Nothing was working. I started to feel like surgery was my only option and felt depressed. Somebody shared with me about Prolotherapy/Prolozone and Dr. Kramer, and I was intrigued. After the stiffness from the injections subsided I was absolutely amazed … NO PAIN!
Jerri J. (Age 67) Knee — In 1988 I had arthroscopic surgery on both knees. This initially seemed to help, but finally a few years ago the pain got much worse. I had difficulty with stairs and even with walking, and was advised to consider knee replacement. Instead, I opted to see Dr. Kramer. I had monthly Prolotherapy treatments from February through August at which point I felt my knees were probably about 60% – 65% improved. We decided to stop treatment for a bit to see if my knees would continue to improve while I continued with recommended exercises. They did, and I would say that I’m about 85% – 90% full function in my worst knee, and almost 100% in the other knee.
Gary C. (Age 67) Shoulder — I found out I had a large rotator cuff tear and the physician I went to see wanted to do surgery. I didn’t like the fact that I would have to be laid up 3 – 12 months. I work as an electrician and do a lot of overhead work. The pain was making it hard to work and difficult to sleep at night. I heard about Dr. Kramer from a family member and thought I would give it a try. After a few treatments I could feel relief, and with a few more treatments the pain is now almost gone. I never had to quit working while receiving treatment. I am very thankful I heard about this type of treatment and about Dr. Kramer!
