Why Is Dr. Fields so Passionate about PRP and Prolotherapy?
Dr. Fields is personally familiar with one particular patient who was extremely athletic and exercised frequently. Happiness in this patient’s life meant moving, exercising and challenging his body on a daily basis. Competing in triathlons was his passion.
But then severe back pain for over 6 months led him to try several methods to heal himself, including chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and inversion therapy. None of them helped completely. That led him to get an MRI that revealed numerous problems in his spine, including……
- Dehydrated discs
- 9mm disc protrusion
- Spondylolisthesis at L5-S1
- Bilateral Spondylolysis at L5-S1
- Considerable Spondylosis at L5-S1
- Compromised nerve roots
- Significant neural foraminal stenosis
- Displacement of traversing nerve roots
Three different neurosurgeons told him that if he did not have spinal surgery, he would never be able to exercise again, let alone ever compete again.
This devastated the patient because a sedentary life was just not an option for him.
This patient then learned about Regenerative Orthopedics and had both his back and shoulder treated with Prolotherapy. The results were everything he had hoped they would be. He now lives a full and complete active life, and…
