I was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis and right leg sciatica/ radiculopathy. I have received a series of steroid epidural spinal injections every four months for the last year and a half. At first they were totally effective. After a time, they gradually wore off before the next scheduled injection, and finally stopped working all together. My quality of life was severely affected. Sleeping was unbearable. I was not able to maintain a comfortable position, waking every few hours in extreme pain. I was also unable walk without pain.
After four series of Neural Prolotherapy injections for my sciatic pain, the pain was beginning to subside considerably. After the seventh injection, with the exception of a few flare-ups, I am able to comfortably sleep the night through and walk without pain in my right leg.
I also have primary progressive multiple sclerosis. I am often times in a wheelchair, which undoubtedly adds to my pain and discomfort. MS is not a cookie cutter disease. Dr. Kaplan has tried alternative methods with Neural Prolotherapy to help me ease my pain. He is very attentive and genuinely concerned for my well-being. For this I am very appreciative.
