Background: Brianna is a 29 year-old female who presents to the office with left hip pain and right knee pain. The hip pain started three years ago and the knee pain started seven years. She injured her knee during gymnastics and never had it evaluated. She remembers she landed awkwardly on her right leg and”popped” her knee out. She “popped” her knee back in place, the pain diminished but was never the same.
Due to the knee injury, she also developed left hip pain. The pain is worse when she “stops”, as long as she moves she does not feel any pain in the region. She self treats both of her injuries with herbal supplements such as turmeric. She works as a bartender and is on her feet for 13 hours per day.
Diagnosis: In order to properly evaluate the knee injury we needed an MRI. The MRI revealed the following: moderate diffuse partial ACL tear and grade II chrondromalacia patella.
Treatment: On September 12, 2016, Brianna received amniotic fluid therapy.
Result: Brianna was pain free in just two weeks! She was able to dance for the first time on November 14, 2016.
Before Stem Cell: Knee pain for 7 years.
After Stem Cell: No pain and was able to dance for the first time in 7 years.
Program: One injection of Amniotic Fluid Therapy
