Background: Michael is a 40-year-old male who originally presented to the office with lower back pain. He had attempted to pick up a couple of gallons of water and injured his back. During our first visit Mike reported that he had right hip replacement surgery in June 2010. He had some complications from the surgery that required a second surgery to the same hip. He needed additional screws inserted to hold the hip in place.
Mike was told that he would eventually need the left hip replaced as well! Mike wanted to do everything possible to avoid a second hip replacement before age 42, but did not think there were other options. He had his left hip replacement scheduled for September 15, 2016. Mike did have constant left hip pain when he came into the office, but his lower back pain forced him to seek treatment. He thought he was destined for surgery until he found out about stem cell therapy. Mike decided to give stem cell therapy “a try” hoping to push off surgery for just a few more years. Also during this time Mike needed to take 1500mg of Ibuprofen, per day, for pain relief!!!
Diagnosis: Severe superior narrowing of the left hip, with extensive subchondral sclerosis and cystic changes within the superior acetabulum and anterior superior femoral head. (Osteoarthritis – left hip)
Treatment: July 2016- 2cc’s of amniotic fluid therapy – left hip.
Result: Mike cancelled his left hip replacement surgery and does not take any more Ibuprofen! Mike went on vacation for 2 weeks after treatment and had no pain the entire trip!
Before Stem Cell: Left hip pain for 6 years.
After Stem Cell: Avoided hip surgery!
Program: One treatment of Amniotic Fluid Therapy & sporadic chiropractic / rehabilitation visits.
