I'm a 50+ year old who loves life, shopping, and suddenly was unable to enjoy either because of chronic pain in my left ankle.
I tried physical therapy more than once, cortisone injections, laser therapy, NASID's, ice, air cast, and AFO--none of which relieved me of this chronic pain. The pain brought me tears many days, and I had fears of getting from the couch to the bed or bathroom.
After 5 years of treatment, Dr. Laurino offered me the information on PRP. I took it home, read it, and looked online to see what information was available or what outcomes were reported.
I scheduled the injection date, and not expecting much, it started to feel better each week. Now after 5 months, I feel like I have about 90% less pain. I'm starting to increase my walking distance and have freedom to go shopping without the pain I used to fear! Thank you, Dr. Laurino!Bridgette G., November 2013
