For those of you who know me, know I have been battling really bad pain in both of my knees for quite some time. I’ve had laproscopic surgery on both knees and was not able to finish physical therapy from my last surgery. I also was told by one doctor that I needed a knee replacement. But, I can’t take off work for the time he told me was necessary – 6-8 weeks per knee.

So, I checked out a sports medicine doctor – not a chiropractor. There will be 3 days of treatment which I will talk about in my blog here. The first day is a ‘pre-injection’ which is a combination of dextrose and saline in both my knees.

The second day, they will draw blood & bone marrow from my hip in the morning and then later in the day, they will have done some sort of mixture, getting the stem cells that will be injected later that afternoon.

On Friday, the last day, there will be an injection of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) – what they call a booster shot or shots.

I will have strenthening/exercise program for 4 to 6 weeks afterwords. I will be reporting on my progress from the start to the end. It’s starting on September 26th. Stay tuned for all the up and coming action.
