When I was about 15-years-old I started having pain in my knees and it’s been with me ever since. Along the way I’ve enjoyed downhill and cross-country skiing. Those sports helped in the sense that the muscles supporting the knees were strengthened, but also hurt in that there was extra stress placed on the joints.
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.
Working with Dr. Kramer is a joyful experience. He’s gentle, caring, and is committed to helping as many people regain their zest for life as possible. I’m thrilled to be avoiding surgery, with all it’s potential complications. I find this therapy to be nothing short of miraculous and am ever so grateful that there are people like Dr. Kramer.
