I consulted with the Ozzie Smith Center in Chesterfield for lower back and bilateral knee arthritis when my knees began to inhibit my activity. Previous knee surgery for cartilage damage and x-rays had indicated I would need knee replacement surgery when I was old enough to have my knees replaced. At the Ozzie Smith Center, I was told that my knees were so bad they were causing my back pain due to the way I walked. After diagnosis through x-rays and an MRI, I received decompression treatments, physical therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma for my back. For my knees, I received hyaluronic acid injections, Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem Cell therapy along with the physical therapy. I can honestly say that the therapy I received has saved me fromm needing knee replacement surgery. The follow-up x-rays showed lessening of the knee arthritis, as well as evidence of new cartilage growth in my knees. I am now able to climb up and down, walk better and particpate in my sporting activities. I moved to Missouri to enjoy my retirement years where I enjoy trail riding, hiking, fishing and canoeing. I am 68 years old and a retired veternarian progressing very well. I recommend The Ozzie Smith Center before any joint replacement or surgery for back and joint pain, arthritis or injury.
