Robert had hip and lower back pain and wasn’t sure where the pain came from. He went to an orthopedic surgeon who took X-rays which showed shrinking intervertebral discs and hip osteoarthritis. He came to see us, and we did a diagnostic local anesthetic injection which showed that his pain was actually from his hip. He had a stem cell treatment on his hip. Now two months later his pain has decreased so much that he has increased his walks from 1½ miles to 7½ miles. He can feel his leg muscles are starting to come back and his hip pain is decreased by 60-70%.
