Treatment: Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) / Shoulder

Scott Speck is an internationally renowned symphony orchestra conductor and the author of Classical Music for Dummies.  In the summer of 2008, after a routine gym workout, Scott noticed a severe pain in his right shoulder.  “The pain threatened to severely affect my career,” Said Speck.  “It was painful to even type on the computer, never mind wave a baton.”  He visited an Orthopedist, who ordered a MRI.  The imaging revealed large tears in the labrum and the rotator cuff.  Surgery was immediately recommended.

As a symphony conductor, Scott was unable to give up six months of work to recover from his shoulder surgery.  Seeking out an alternative to surgery, Scott researched treatments that would help him avoid the lengthy recovery time of surgical intervention.  His research led him to Regenerative therapies.

Scott was examined by the physician and received a Prolotherapy treatment, following his evaluation, on his very first visit.  Scott was impressed with the physician’s knowledge, professionalism and concern, and by the individualized course of treatment he received.

The initial session of Prolotherapy brought about a rapid reduction in pain.  The second session provided even more relief.  The Prolotherapy treatments evolved into Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments that resulted in pain relief and a return to normal functioning.  “I had been almost unable to function in my job, but the treatments allowed me to thrive.  I have a career again.”
