I came to see Dr. Kramer in April 2017 fort pain in my left toe joint. I had been dealing with this for 3-years. The past 2-years I started receiving cortisone shots in the joint every 3-months. I was told by my orthopedic doctor that my toe had arthritis, that the cartilage in the joint was mostly gone, and that I would need surgery.
My chiropractor recommended Dr. Kramer, who had been successfully treated. Dr. Kramer recommended injections in the joint.
After my first injection I felt some relief. After the second injection I started feeling even better. After the third treatment it was even better. Then my right toe joint started bothering me. Dr. Kramer started treatment on that joint. It took only 2-injections and was pain-free. The left toe took 5-injections, but I had been dealing with it for 3-years. The color of my toe and joint is normal now. When I was first seen it was a purple color.
When I came for treatment I was in a lot of pain, could not walk very well, and was unable to perform everyday life tasks. Now I am pain-free, which is amazing. One additional thing that really helped was wearing correct footwear, a firm soled shoe that doesn’t bend at the joint.
If you are being told you need surgery, please consider this way to heal your joint.
Dr. Kramer was very kind, caring, and professional. I am so thankful for his gift and knowledge, and for helping others heal, be pain-free, and active again!
