Osteoarthritis: the leading musculoskeletal cause of disability in the Western society. Years and a lifetime of ignored low-level chronic inflammation catch up to us as we age—our joints wear down, it becomes painful to do what we love…

Cartilage—a firm, flexible tissue that cushions bones at joints. Cartilage lets bones glide over one another while absorbing energy from the movement.

When cartilage breaks down and wears away, the bones rub together causing pain, swelling, and stiffness.

In pain, we are driven to seek help. Pain makes it impossible to have a high quality of life, play with our children or grandchildren, enjoy the things we used to do easily. And if only that pain can go away we can have the life we want back.

Repairing injuries with PRP

Considering joint surgery or know someone who is? Before you sign on to expensive surgeries and lengthy recovery times, join my talk.

I didn’t think that my first experience with a new and cutting edge medical technology, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, would be as personal as it turned out to be—my own shoulder injury. My trusted orthopedic surgeon explained the “necessary” surgery, the long and painful physical therapy, and the many months of not being able to provide Osteopathic care to my wonderful patients. Yikes! As I couldn’t lift or use my arm, I had to something.

Luckily, another a colleague uses PRP in his practice. After a short series of non-surgical office procedures, I have full range of motion and am able to perform all of my usual work, and play, and all without pain or restrictions.

Hear more about my own personal experience and this extremely economical and effective regenerative therapy. Then let’s talk. Let’s see whether this therapy would be appropriate for you.
