I’ve had arthritis in both hips with my left hip being the worst. I’ve experienced constant soreness and pain, which forced me to curtail some athletic activities and sleep on my back and right side. I also have reduced range of motion. I’ve had the problems for the past seven years. I’d seen an orthopedic surgeon who told me my hip would need replacement. I’d taken aspirin and anti-inflammatories to stem the pain.
Dr. Kramer started Prolotherapy in December 2004. I’ve had five treatments to my hip and within the first day my felt better. I have less pain and am able to walk with a more relaxed and less restrictive gait. With continued use of Prolotherapy I am hoping to continue with my athletic activities (tennis, skiing, biking, golf) and forestall surgery. I’ve already exceeded the orthopedists’ prediction of two years. I recommend Dr. Kramer and Prolotherapy to anyone facing the prospect of hip surgery.
