Patient Case Studies

Prolotherapy

 

Soccer Player Knee Case Study

Today we completed treatment on a 31-year-old male soccer player who injured his left knee four years ago while playing soccer.

Problem

He complained of a constant pain in the back of his knee with bending and had a pain score of 10/10. He had no improvement with exercise, massage and over-the-counter medications.

Initial Exam

We examined his knee with ultrasound and determined that he had a small fluid collection in the area close to the region of a Baker’s cyst along the margin of the posterior meniscus of the knee.

Treatment

I started treating him with prolotherapy for two sessions and we drained and broke up the cyst with ultrasound.

I then hydrodissected the nerve, under ultrasound guidance, along the posterior knee that was trapped in muscle.

By the end of the last treatment today, which was a total of three, the patient’s pain was down to 0/10.

This case study exemplifies the benefit of an accurate diagnosis using manual and ultrasound guided techniques to eliminate a chronic pain problem.
