Severe Scoliosis Treated With Prolotherapy
Individualized Treatment Program
- Prolotherapy Treatments Under Fluoroscopic Guidance
February 18th, 2019
Today we gave a booster treatment to an 83-year-old female who came to us with severe pain in her lower back radiating into her foot. She had epidural injections, which did not help.
X-rays of her spine demonstrated very severe rotatory scoliosis throughout the thoracolumbar spine, one of the worst I had seen. Degeneration of the joints and discs was present everywhere.
Prolotherapy Treatment Program
She underwent a series of prolotherapy treatments under fluoroscopic guidance which was necessary to reach the import anatomical structures and avoid complications.
As of her last visit, she was reporting that she was almost pain free and that she was walking three miles at a time and she went to Disney World with her family. She had never been able to do this in the past without treatment.
It is now eight months later, and we saw her again today and she told us that she was back to Disney World with her family, she took a cruise and was walking and hiking for miles at a time. She continues to walk more than two miles daily with minimal discomfort. She said without the prolotherapy treatments she would never have been able to do these types of things.
We present this case study that demonstrates the potential effectiveness of prolotherapy with site specific image guidance.
