If you have ever broken a bone or been injured at some time in your life, I can tell you about the experience of having an injury heal just as fast as getting injured.
January 2008 I contacted Dr. Kramer as a final resource to see if he could help me before I went in for what I thought would be hip replacement surgery. I injured my hip in June 1999 while playing softball. My pain was so great that I had trouble sleeping. Every time I would get up from a sitting position I wondered whether my first step would leave me face first on the floor or in an upright position. Dr. Kramer’s first treatment left me with an unusual experience. I was pain-free and thought he had me healed the minute I walked out the door. This unfortunately was a big mistake on my part as I did not listen too well to Dr. Kramer and let it heal as any injury needs to heal like he had told me to do. I went home thinking I could do everything again and re-injured it two days later.
I went back in for the second treatment, as he told me I would need to do when I first went in, but this time I gave it time to heal. I tried not to get as excited about the new pain-free life the second time around and let it heal first. This time it worked much better. I also was trained by Reagan Kramer (Dr. Kramer’s wife) for some physical therapy exercises. She helped me rebalance and strengthen my body as I had obviously overcompensated for 10 years of pain in my hip. This was a huge help and still is today!
I also had prolotherapy treatments administered on my shoulder, neck and lower back, all of which helped me be able to do things that I could not do for almost 10 years. The biggest test came in November of 2008 when I was able to scrimmage against the boy’s high school basketball team that I coach. I did not have any pain in my hip the next day or the following three months of the season to this point, which is a great feeling!
Thank you George and Reagan Kramer for the renewed feeling of pain-free walking and the more positive attitude I was able to get back because of less pain in my body.
