DR. R.S. M.D., Tampa, Florida
62 YEAR-OLD PHYSICIAN WITH SEVERE BACK PAIN
I injured my back while climbing in Europe. My Orthopedist did x-rays and an MRI and diagnosed disc bulges as the problem. Two steroid epidurals failed to relieve the pain and I was headed for spinal surgery when I consulted you. You diagnosed a severe pelvic strain as the primary pain generator and promptly recommended PRP injections as the treatment of choice. Considering the pain level I was skeptical but you came highly recommended by my wife who you had treated years before and I decided to proceed. After four sessions of PRP and two months later- I am delighted to report that I am now pain free. Unnecessary spinal surgery was avoided. What a great gift! Thank you Dr. Walter for your skill at diagnosing the true underlying cause of the pain and your pioneering work in Stem Cell Therapy and regenerative Orthopedics.
Dear Dr. Walter, I want to thank you for curing my tennis elbow and letting me get back to the game I enjoy so much. I have been singing your praises to all that will listen.
Dear Dr. Walter, Prolotherapy is a “Godsend”. I am so pleased with the improvement in my shoulder after only two months of Prolotherapy treatment with you. When I came to see you I couldn’t lift my arm more than shoulder height and could barely sleep with the continuously throbbing pain. After six treatments with you I am very nearly 100% mobile and the discomfort has all but disappeared. Just unbelievable! Thank you, Dr. Walter, and please also thank Suzanna for her invaluable assistance. What a blessing.
I am a retired scientist who spent 30 years working for a major pharmaceutical company in various research positions including Director of Agricultural Research for Europe, including the then Soviet Union, the Middle East and East Africa, Director of Animal Science Research, Director of Animal Science Field Research World-Wide, and Research Advisor. I have published more than 60 peer-reviewed scientific papers on parasitic diseases of commercial animals, and developed a product to control parasitic diseases in poultry that captured 90% of the market in 6 months, in 1972, and is still in wide use throughout the world in poultry, turkeys, beef and dairy cattle. I came to Dr. Walter with a severe arthritic left knee, a painful right knee that had a previous total knee replacement, and non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy. After 6 prolotherapy treatments my left knee has improved by about 80%. Three prolotherapy treatments to the tendons above the right knee patella reduced the pain in the right knee by more than 60%. The use of Prologel along with ultrasound on my feet and lower legs has restored about 30% of the feeling that had been lost due to the neuropathy. I am continuing to use this self-treatment about three times a week. I recommend Dr. Walter’s prolotherapy for joint problems. It works!
Dear Dr. Walter, I want to let you know how well Prolotherapy has worked for my knee problems. In February of 2010 I began to have chronic knee pain in my left knee. The pain was under the kneecap and toward the inside of the knee consistent with pain one might expect from cartilage damage. I had had cartilage removed from that knee 40 years ago. An X-ray of the knee confirmed some bone on bone contact. The pain continued to increase in frequency and intensity through March. I had to resort to using a pillow at night to adjust the position of my knee to minimize discomfort during sleeping hours. I could still play tennis, but the pain was definitely noticeable before and after playing. I explored the possibilities for treatment including knee replacement. Two tennis-playing friends who had similar problems with their knees had had successful results after you treated them with Prolotherapy. I was impressed and decided that this avenue of therapy was definitely worth a try. Knee replacement is strictly a last resort and involves considerable expense, time for recovery, and pain. I received my first set of injections to the knee in April and this was followed by 2 succeeding injections over a 3 week period. The pain I was experiencing was virtually gone 24-48 hours after the first injection. The pain had totally disappeared after the second injection and I needed no further injections after the third injection. I attribute this rapid response to the fact that I went immediately to Prolotherapy while my knee was still relatively healthy. This seems to countermand the usual advice one gets from orthopedic surgeons who advise that one should wait until the knee is so bad that you cannot stand the pain anymore. Then they will replace the knee. I have been pain free and playing tennis 5 days a week since my last treatment one month ago. This course of therapy should be considered by patients with similar problems regardless of whether insurance covers the expense or not. In my estimation the cost is insignificant compared to the risk and potential complications of knee replacement surgery.
I have had chronic backpain for 13 years after a car accident. The pain was severe, almost constant and burning and stabbing in quality. Over the years I went to see 15 doctors with the problem including my primary care doctor, orthopedists, neurologists, a neurosurgeon and a pain specialist. I even went to a psychiatrist who told me the pain was all in my head. Then I found Dr. Walter. After two sessions of Prolotherapy regenerative injections two weeks apart my pain went from a level 10 to level two in intensity. Furthermore the burning quality would leave after each treatment for at least two weeks. After the sixth treatment, I didn’t have burning for six weeks. After Four months and eight sessions later I am 85% improved. I thank God for Dr. Walter and his healing skills.
I am very happy I found Dr. Walter. I am pain free after having my back, neck and hip worked on. I would recommend Prolotherapy to anyone with pain. Do not wait. It needs to be done as soon as possible. It has been four years since I had my Prolo. No pain, no problems-Great results.
Dear Dr. Walter, I am so excited this morning and wanted to tell you about it! After 12 years and three spinal surgeries (two lumbar and one cervical) I was left exactly where I started, without relief. Well I had my second prolotherapy session yesterday and when I woke up at 3 AM I immediately thought something was different. I did not have pain in my back or down the leg. At first I thought I had gone to heaven and then realized that I was still here. I got out of bed and walked around just to be sure and srill no pain. I am now at work and have NOT yet taken a pain killer. I just had to share my happiness with you this morning. Thank you! You are truly a blessing in my life.
