If you have a tendon or ligament injury, PRP is like a miracle. I have had foot problems for 3 years including surgery in 2014, with injury returning in January, 2015. I have been coming to LifeWorks since January, non-weight bearing on crutches, taking the maximum dose of Ibuprofen, and started walking PAIN FREE on June 2, after my second PRP shot.
A doctor at the Florida Orthopedic Institute said he “didn’t know what was wrong with me” and recommended I get a “second opinion” – after he did surgery on me last year. After an MRI and 2 appointments, he discharged me as hopeless.
I am SO GRATEFUL that I am informed about the other options available through LifeWorks, otherwise I was settling on the idea that, at 35, I’d never walk pain free again.
Thanks you LifeWorks. Thank you Dr. Minkoff.
