I began treating with Dr. Horn for pain in my lower back and hips. The diagnosis took a bit of time for us to figure out but when he was able to pinpoint the injury, his recommended course of treatment was conservatively aggressive to help get me back to a point where I could sit without much discomfort. At first we tried conventional modalities for treatment including Physical Therapy and injections. As these treatments began to have minimal improvements, Dr. Horn recommended PRP. He walked me through how the PRP works and suggested I do some research to see if I was willing to try this modality of treatment. As we discussed the treatment, Dr. Horn was very clear on the fact that this may take multiple treatments. I asked, "What is multiple?" He said, "At least two–maybe three or four." After the first treatment, I thought, "Why would I put myself through that again?" Then I began to see the improvements as time went on and I continued with therapy. Then came a second plateau and we tried many other alternatives. I agreed to a second round of PRP and the improvement I had was remarkable! It has been well over a year and I continue to see improvements in my hips, which I believe are fundamentally due to the PRP and Physical Therapy combination. The physical therapy was only going to get my so far and the PRP has pushed my healing well over to the top.
Thank you, Dr. Horn for taking the time to explain the PRP treatment, advantages and disadvantages, and most importantly for thinking outside the traditional treatment modalities to help push my healing process.
