Treating Osteoarthritis for The Golf Game

Robert is a 72 year old gentleman with ongoing knee pain related to Osteoarthritis and recurrent swelling with activity. This was really interfering with his golf game. He has been told that he is a candidate for a total knee replacement, but does not feel ready.  After learning about Robert and his future plans, we suggested a course of prolotherapy injections. The injections were repeated every 3-4 weeks for a total of 6 treatments. Robert opted for this option because it did not require any down time and he was able to continue golfing, even during the treatments. Following the treatments, Robert was very pleased since he was no longer experiencing swelling and had minimal discomfort, even when he opted to walk instead of ride while golfing.
