Dr Allina Pain Management

Prolotherapy

May 25, 2005

To whom it may concern: 

I injured my back for the first time in 1987 while working in construction and was unable to work for 6 months. I missed a lot of work over the next several years due to problems with my back. 

In 1999, while working in tool & die shop, I injured my back again by lifting too much weight. For a number of months, I could work only part of the time. Finally in Feb 2000, I went on temporary disability with Workers Comp. for 2 years. 

In 2002, I was able to work as a short order cook with reduced hours and strict weight lifting restrictions. In Dec. 2004, I slipped and injured my back again. The massage therapist I was seeing told me about Prolotherapy. Another one of his clients was seeing Dr. Alfred Allina in Fort Wayne and was amazed by the results. 

I contacted Dr. Allina January 2005 for consultation session and he assured me that he could completely relieve my pain. I had my first injections on Jan. 24, 2005 and my final ones on May 2, 2005. I am completely off the pain medications and my back feels the best it has felt since 1987. 

I am 45 years old and feel great! All of the pain and discomfort I have been living with for the past 17 years is gone! I would never have thought it was possible! Dr. Allina has been a real blessing! He is the only doctor that did not tell me I would have to learn to live with the pain and medications. 

Thank you Dr. Allina for giving me my life back!

August 16, 2010

Dear Dr. Allina, 

Words cannot express my gratitude for the help you’ve given me. It wasn’t long ago that my life was debilitated by the neck and pain and migraines I had suffered from for 19 years. During that time I had been to so many doctors and tried every kind of therapy under the sun, to no avail. 

At the recommendation of a chiropractor, I came to see you. Everything you said made sense, and I made my first prolotherapy appointment. I did research online, and it all looked promising. Even so, I was skeptical—I had tried so many other things—and afraid of being disappointed once again by promises of help. This would be the most invasive procedure I’d tried, and I was also nervous about that. I came very close to canceling the appointment the day before it was scheduled. 

Thank God I didn’t. Prolotherapy (and you) performed a miracle—you healed my neck and migraines. My quality of life is so much better. Not only am I not suffering with pain, but I am happier (my family thanks you). 

I’ve told everyone I know about prolotherapy, especially those who suffer similar pain. I’m grateful to you for giving me back my life again! 

With great gratitude,

Joint Pain

2010

To Whom It May Concern: 

I recently made an appointment with Dr. Allina because of pain, swelling, and crepitus in my knees. I am a physical education teacher, volunteer EMT, and a professional pilot. All of these occupations require me to be ambulatory, be able to squat and lift heavy objects and at times, run.  I had a visited a local orthopedic group on several occasions. They X-rayed my knees and told me that my knees were just wearing out and that I should “take it easy” so my knees would last longer before I needed replacements.  Not being one who could see himself just sitting around and “taking it easy”, I visited Dr. Allina, who I had used in my past for my flight physicals. I shared my X-rays and symptoms with the good doctor and he quickly developed and explained a 3 tiered plan to make my knees well again. 

The first level of intervention was to get me started on MSN (Alpha-Sul-flex), Glucosamine Sulfate, and Hyaluronic Acid. If this did not work he would begin using laser and prolotherapy.  I have never been a big believer in supplements. When Dr. Allina recommended that I started the aforementioned regiment of pills, I agreed but was really shaking my head inside, thinking it will be a waste of time and money. 

After one week on supplements, the pain and swelling in my knees was completely gone. After 6 weeks, the crepitus was reduced by 90%. Quite honestly, I still find it hard to believe. But, since I first started taking supplements, I have been hiking in the mountains of Vermont, helped my son move a friend out of a second story apartment, and been water skiing, all pain and swelling free. 

My experience with Dr. Allina has been nothing but positive. He really has been a health care professional who doesn’t want to just keep treating his patients; he wants to make them well again.

Dear Dr. Allina,

I want to say, “thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.” You have made my life so much better in a few short months. 

When I came to see you in July 2006, I was very skeptical because I had been to a number of doctors over the prior 2 years and dealing with a number of issues and did NOT want any more prescriptions!  I  went through a period of 3 years with migraine headaches in which I had seen two difference doctors and they each and me on an anti-depressant. I had all of the sudden developed allergies, which I was prescribed 3 more prescriptions. I had been dealing with an old injury to my foot, which had developed into severe pain if I just bumped it against something or anyone stepped on my foot. I also, at the same time was approaching 40 and having terrible mood swings during my monthly cycle. This was what finally prompted me to find a different solution because these emotions had become uncontrollable. 

Up until this period in my life, I had been very physically fit and athletic and had never needed a doctor. When these issues began, my exercising slowed down and I have put on about 30 pounds. This was very frustrating since I had exercised every day for most of my life. So, when all of these aches and pains began happening, I became very frustrated and decided I needed to make a change in what all doctors were saying. I felt there had to be an answer. It seemed to be one thing after the other and one day I realized I was taking way too many prescription drugs to fix all the problems I was going through. I went from taking nothing all my life to taking 8-9 pills each day and still having the same problems. 

You immediately prescribed a cream I put on my body every day that would put Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone into my system. My body was producing little to none of these which makes sense since my body did not produce periods on its own. I was put into birth control to produce a one day period. I noticed the changes in my mood within the 2nd month of using the cream. Yes, I will probably do that for the rest of my life, but NO more mood swings and migraine headaches during my monthly cycle. 

You then began to do injections on my foot and after 3 injections, I am running again without any pain!!!!! The weight is now coming off and I feel much better every day I wake up. The allergies have been controlled and I take medications only in the spring and fall. 

Your methods work and without prescriptions. I am so happy to be free of all the prescriptions today and am incredibly thankful to you for getting my “back to what was normal” for me, active and fit with no drugs.  I am very grateful for your knowledge in the medical field and to Jeanette for recommending you. I will be doing the same to my friends and family. 

Thank You, 

Cindy F.

Appeals Department

Dear Sirs:

I disagree with your decision to deny benefits for Injection Therapy. The review board states that it is "experimental". However, all the research I have done indicates that this therapy was invented in 1939, carries the FDA approval and has a success rate ranging from 80-90% depending on what article or journal you read. That is a higher success rate than any of the other procedures you have approved.

I have had 2 surgeries on my cervical spine in the past 5 years. Both surgeries were supposed to correct the problem in my neck and relieve the agonizing pain in my back, shoulder, arm, and hand. Before and after both surgeries I was sent to physical therapy to try and relieve the pain. I have been through 9 or 10 different pain medications, 7 different doctors, 4 MRI’s, and countless other tests. I lost nearly 1 full year of work and invested over 10,000$ of my own money to no avail. Not to mention the physical, emotional, and financial drain on my and my family. Now, Fort James has told me that I am at risk of losing my job if I don’t get this medical problem resolved.

The last two specialists I have seen believe my options are limited as this point. They feel they can give me temporary relief with another surgery (which would remove some scar tissues from the area) or a less invasive treatment, Injection Therapy, which offers a proven long term cure.

On August 31, 1998 Dr. Willyard’s office requested a referral and pre-certification. Dr. Willyard personally telephones on Sept. 4. He also had his office call and check on the pre-certification numerous times. I myself called and discussed with Bonita on 3 or 4 occasions. After waiting 3 weeks, and still no decision from your review board, I could not tolerate the pain any longer and agreed to the Injection Therapy. It was not until Oct. 7, some 4 ½ weeks after the initial request, a decision was finally made by the review board.

On October 1, 1998 I received my 1st treatment. Three days later I was hopeful. Now nearly 2 ½ weeks later, I am amazed! For the first time in nearly 5 years and I have not had to take any pain medication. The pain had decreased significantly at this point and I am hopeful with your help I can afford to continue with the treatments. Please reconsider. My family’s future is riding on my recovery.

Sincerely Yours,

R. Nick. B.

October 2, 2000

Dear Dr. Allina,

I wanted to take a few minutes to give a heartfelt thank you to you and your staff for helping me to return to good health. Over the last couple of years you have successfully treated my chronic neck, back, hip, and pelvic pain with Prolotherapy. My pain originated from a horseback riding accident, a car crash, over a decade of heavy lifting, and bearing two children on top of the everyday abuse a body can take. I suffered continuously from muscle spasms and joint pain that other physicians and therapist had virtually said I would have to live with. After three extensive treatments with Prolotherapy of all the affected areas I am 95% pain free!!! I rarely have a flare up of pain and it is always associated with hard use. I am free of daily headaches, muscle spasms, and joint pain that plagued me for over 14 years before you offered me help. The last treatment I received was under conscious sedation, which made the Prolotherapy virtually painless! I recommend that option for all extensive treatments.

Your expertise, willingness to try alternative therapies and persistence in finding relief for your patient discomfort helped me once again this past summer. I had become ill beginning in March of this year and had repeated bouts of Strep throat, respiratory problems, sinus problems and flu-like symptoms, which were treated with repeating rounds of antibiotics. However I kept getting more ill as time went on. I was having incredible joint pain of every joint in my body. My physician was testing me for chronic and acute disease including Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, and leukemia to name a few. I went through allergy testing as well. I was told I might have Chronic Fatigue syndrome or Fibromyalgia. I would not accept that and kept pushing for more tests to find the source of the problem. My profession as a registered nurse with 14 years of critical care experience and I am currently working in a healthcare quality field. I was extremely frustrated with the medical care I was receiving. Mainstream medicine was failing me.

The day I couldn't raise my arms due to the pain my husband called you in desperation. Within minutes you gave us hope and a potential diagnosis of "Leaky Gut Syndrome" which results in having an overwhelming systemic yeast infection. I was ready to try anything to regain my health. You assisted in ordering the test and speaking with my local physicians to get the medications I needed. You counseled me on the diet changes I needed including supplements. Within days I was feeling better. With a week the joint pain was gone. Within a month my energy level was returning. I was returning to health! Three months later I am in control of my life again and feel fantastic!

I am spreading the word about your services and approach to patient care every opportunity I get. I am also encouraging others to continue to seek treatment for health problems that mainstream medicine has essentially given up on. You provide a wonderful service and hope for many desperate people. For that I thank you and your staff with all my heart. May you be blessed with satisfaction and pride from your work and most importantly, with your own good health.

Sincerely,

Monica R.

November 18, 1998

Dear. Dr. Allina,

This is a thank you for introducing me to prolotherapy and to inform and encourage other people about this form of pain management.

In November of 1997 I sustained a torn meniscus of the left knee which left me limping and frequently kept me awake at night with burning pain at the site. The torn meniscus was diagnosed by MRI.

Being an RNA who works in surgery and often observes knee arthroscopy I was willing to defer this surgery and undergo prolotherapy when Dr. Allina approached me and explained the process and results to me. I had never heard of Prolotherapy or Reconstructive Therapy as it is sometimes called, but I was willing to go it a try, especially when I heard Dr. Allina himself had undergo this form of pain management for his back.

I must admit I was somewhat skeptical at first, but that would soon end. I was Dr. Allina’s first prolotherapy patient. After several sessions, I am never awakened at night by left knee pain. I no longer limp because of pain in my left knee. I would say the pain is 90 percent gone without surgery or losing work.

Thank you Dr. Allina… and for other skeptics I would urge you to give it a try.

Sincerely,

Nancy G., RN

Dr. Allina,

Thank you so much for the relief the injection therapy as brought me!

I was having muscle spasms in my lower back once every four months, causing me to miss work and to move with great difficulty. Since starting the injections last November to tighten the iliolumbar ligament in my lower back, I have not had another occurrence of muscle spasms. I have been able to play basketball, exercise on a treadmill, and go sledding with my family (with 2 or 3 children on my back!) without muscle spasms occurring after the activity (which used to be the case).

I look forward to continuing my active, pain-free, spasm-free life thanks to the injection therapy

Sincerely,

Dear Dr. Allina,

Thank you for making prolotherapy available in Fort Wayne! I have been a dental assistant for over 30 years and my job has taken a toll on my neck and back. After going to the chiropractor every 2 weeks for almost 2 years I found that my muscle pain level was not improving, and I was still constantly popping out of adjustment. I felt like I was fighting a losing battle. After receiving multiple prolotherapy treatments on my neck, shoulders, mi-back, lower back, and also some laser therapy, I feel like a new person. 90% of my pain has gone away and I no longer pop out of adjustment. My neck and back has so much more strength and stability. Strengthening the tendons and ligaments is such a huge part of recovering from the chronic pain I have been experiencing. I still go to the chiropractor once a month for maintenance, but I know with more prolotherapy there is hope I will be pain free and my chiropractic visits will become less. I know now that I have work as long as I need to be as active as I was before neck and back pain slowed me down. 

I am also glad that you checked the yeast and bacterial levels of my digestive system. Getting those levels back in balance has virtually wiped out my sinus problems and allergy symptoms. I feel so much better! 

Thank you Dr. Allina for caring enough to provide people with all the alternative treatments that you do. You are a wonderful and special doctor!  Also, prolotherapy is a great way to treat TMJ pain. I recommend it highly!

Sincerely,

J.K.G 

P.S. Thank you Julie and Marina!

2010

Dear Dr. Allina, 

I don’t even know how to begin to thank you for assisting me in regaining my health and well being. Twenty years ago I saw my family doctor because I was feeling fatigued and my hair was falling out. I was told I had alopecia and I was diagnosed with a borderline thyroid condition. I was prescribed Synthyroid, and send home. My hair stopped falling out after I stared taking the medications, but it never really grew back in, and my fatigue did not go away. Just two years later, at the age of 33, I was diagnosed with early onset menopause. Though I was put on bio-identical hormones, they were oral, and after few years became ineffective. Over the course of the next fifteen years I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue, as well as an immune disorder. Though I was treated, I never felt much better. 

In my quest for health and well being, I have been and been treated by five physicians, three chiropractors, two acupuncturists, a naturopath, an herbalist, and as well as a Chinese medicine specialize. Thousands of dollars, and years later, I show up at your office. In December 2008, you placed me on Armour thyroid, and hydrocortisone for my adrenal fatigue. You tweaked the bio-identical hormones, and had them put in a topical form, so my body would absorb them. 

Within a few weeks my life began to change drastically. Over the next few months my energy level began to come up, my skin looked years younger, my hair started growing in again, and my feeling of overall well being increased significantly. 

Even with the improvement I still wasn’t feeling as well as I thought I could. I was still having problems sleeping more than two hours at a time, two or three nights a week, and would have moments of fatigue, and didn’t feel normal. Unlike any of the other physicians I had seen, who minimized my symptoms, you were willing to keep looking for solutions. 

In the end you were able to diagnose a pituitary insufficiency that may have been there for years. I have been on HGH for months now, and I can’t believe the difference. For the first time in years I am sleeping through the night. The rest of my fatigue is leaving. For the first time I feel like having a partner in my healthcare, a healer who can hang in there with me, until the problems are found. Though my pituitary insufficiency isn’t curable, it sure is manageable. I feel and look better than I have in years. I can’t thank you enough. In fact, the highest praise I can give you is that I have sent moth my son and daughter to you, for problems they were having. My son with chronic pain and my daughter with probably thyroid problem. My son has been pain free for the first time in years, and my daughter adores you. Thank you for helping me, and helping my family. You’re a gem among physicians! We are so fortunate to have you in our community. 

All of my best,

Victoria W.

November 19, 2007 

Dr. Allina,

I am writing to let you know of my joy and deepest gratitude for restoring my health and well-being. 

My menopause symptoms began almost 5 years ago. Having had no problems with menstruation, and none with childbirth, the menopause symptoms caught me by surprise. They were debilitating and discouraging—the hot flashes, the night sweats, the sleepless nights, the crabbiness, the fatigue, the sense of hopelessness, the constant bladder infections—and worst of all, the total loss of desire, passion and sensuality that had been a source of joy and restoration in my 16 year marriage. 

My mother and aunts grandmothers had not had any trouble with menopause so they were unable to offer any advice.  My doctor offered antidepressants, which took the edge off of my despair but did nothing to restore what was lost to me. 

Hormones made from pregnant mare’s urine seemed to have DANGER written all over it, which recent medical findings confirmed.

I’d seen Suzanne Somers on QVC talking about bio-identical hormones but I considered her something of a nut case and dismissed her out of hand. 

Then something wonderful happened—on a Sunday morning in June I happened onto a PBS program and heard Dr. Christine Northrup speak on the topic of menopause and I was made aware of all the possibilities that could help me. I went out and bought her book that very day, and eagerly read it cover to cover. Suddenly bio-identical hormones didn’t sound like something form a nut case anymore! 

I called my gynecologist, my doctor, and various medical professionals I saw in the yellow pages, trying to find someone who would do a saliva test and prescribe the correct combination of bio-hormones for me. No one would return my calls. The testing places in town did not do saliva tests. My gynecologist had not heard of them and offered me a tube of Estrogen cream so intercourse wouldn’t be so painful. A month earlier I would have eagerly taken it and tried it. But my eyes had been opened, and I was not settling for a pathetic, missing-the-point, too-little-too-late tube of vaginal cream! But once again I’d hit a brick wall. I knew that I needed, but couldn’t get there from here. 

The next month I was crying to our family counselor that this loss of desire was going to by the end of marriage when he suggested I try Dr. Fred Allina, who happened to be in an office three doors down the hallway, who was an anti-aging specialist. I admit to being skeptical, but desperation drove me to make the contact, and desperation forced me to comply with the “Show Me The Money” up-front payment policy! 

All I can say is—THANK YOU! Thanks to your expertise and knowledge, and your years of experience, within four months I have restored to my former self. I’ve lost 17 pounds without any difficulty, I sleep like a baby, no more hot flashes, no infections… and best of all, I’ve got my mojo working again! My husband and I have been acting like teenagers, making up for lost time and enjoying the beejesus out of each other. 

I didn’t expect to ever be this happy again, and I know it shows, because of the comments I get from friends and family: “You look like a hottie” (from my daughter); “Whatever you doin’, keep doin’ it girl, cause you look good!” (old friend); “If he doesn’t treat you right, let me know, and I’ll come pick you up and take you home with me,” (war buddy of my husband); “I want that doctor’s name and phone number! (girl friend); “I’ll have what she’s having!” (another girl friend).

Dr. Allina, we all know the difference between surviving and thriving. I praise God, and I thank you, for moving me from one state to the other, and restoring my joy, my womanhood, and basically, my LIFE! 

Thank you and keep up the good work. I’ll see you in 6 months!

Dear Dr. Allina and your excellent staff,

Thank you so very much for making me feel like my old self again!  I had been feeling tired with no energy and unable to sleep well at night for over 6 month.  I couldn’t think straight. I couldn’t remember anything. I couldn’t concentrate. I got upset very easily.  I felt no sexual sensation and I had no sex drive.  I had very irregular periods with extreme PMS! 

Dr. Allina cured me! He and his staff were so kind and helpful. They really listened to me. I had been to other doctors who didn’t help me any. I am so happy! I feel great! 

Signed,

One happier patient

March 28, 2004 

Dear Dr. Allina, 

I have so much to thank you for; I almost don’t know where to begin. 

Due to complications and side effects from undergoing chemotherapy in 1996, I showed up at your doorstep in July, 2003 after having exhausted the help of numerous other doctors, which had mostly been less than successful. This even included a week long visit to the Mayo Clinic where they said nothing was wrong with me. 

In July, you started with a stool analysis, to determine the cause of long standing-(post-chemo), and painful gastrointestinal complaints. A couple rounds of antibiotic and antifungal help a lot. But that wasn’t good enough for me. I now believed you could help find the cause of my severe fatigue which has plagued me since a short time after the chemotherapy. Several other doctors said I had Chronic Fatigue—and boy were they right. It was chronic. But I could not accept that there was not a cause, or that I would have to live with it forever; only that we hadn’t found the cause, or tested the right things. 

My December of 2003, we hit the goldmine—even though I was the one who received the payout. Testing showed I had several B vitamin deficiencies, with the two most prominent being B-12 and folic acid. After the second B-12 shot, within 30 minutes of receiving it, the fatigue dissipated, then returned cyclically, and within two hours of the shot, all fatigue was gone, and remained gone until a week and a half later when the shot wore off and it was time for more. Several doses later, after adjusting the dosage and frequency, I am completely fatigue free for three months—after a seven year history of severe fatigue to the point of needing to quit work. But that still wasn’t miracle enough for me I guess; I needed more help with the Irritable Bowel Syndrome—constipation predominant I was experiencing. More testing in March 2004 revealed vitamin A, D, E, Calcium, Magnesium, and Zinc deficiencies. One week of 600-800 mgs of Magnesium removed all remaining GI complains and constipation is a thing of the past. I have also been blessed with an amazing sense of calmness that I am not sure I have ever experienced. 

Although I have severe food allergies, I suspect these will dissipate as my body regains its immune system, and a healthy GI. Along with magnesium supplementation, I have noticed a significant increase in stomach acid/hunger which I have not felt since before I became ill in 1996; sense we are trying to put some meat on my bones, I suspect next time I see you I will have added to or more pounds. I am hungry all the time! I truly feel like I have been given someone else’s body. As long as they don’t come back for it, I don’t mind a bit. 

Sincerely,

Lisa H. 

P.S. I am HAPPY to make the six hour road trip to see you, and will not hesitate to continue if needed. Thank you so very much. God bless you many times over for the work you do

August 14, 2010 

Dear Dr. Allina:

I wanted to write and express my thanks for all the help and treatment you have provided since I began seeing you to address the plethora of pain management issues I have dealt with over the last few years. Being a former national level gymnast who transitioned into being a professional dancer, it was expected that my body would suffer from years of chronic stress and strain associated with my career. 

What I did not expect was that the treatment you have provided for me over the past months would extend my ability to perform and be as athletically actives as I am today. Most beneficial have been the prolotherapy treatments I received on my left shoulder, lower back, and my ankles. Before beginning prolotherapy treatment, I dealt with chronic, severe pain in my shoulder, lower back, and feet. I was beginning to think that there was no hope for improving these conditions. I am also an emphatic believer now in platelet replacement therapy you provide, as one treatment in my right ankle has helped provide as much healing and relief as three prolotherapy treatments on my left ankle. 

Along with these treatments and the medications adjustments and supplement information and guidance you have provided, I am now able to train and perform again with much improved recovery time in between. I believe in being an active participant in my own healing process, and your ability and willingness to listen and address my specific concerns has been greatly appreciated. I look forward to a continued partnership with you in treating my pain management and anti-aging issues as they unfold.

I also would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for your wonderful staff as they are always courteous and prompt in assisting you and me in addressing my presenting issues.

With gratitude and appreciation,

February 1, 2011 – My personal testimony 

My name is Edward. I am a 72 year old man who had an accident playing ping pong. I slipped in a water puddle and did the splits. I landed on a hard surface and the inside of my knee joints took the brunt of the fall. An ice pack was applied to my knees to reduce the swelling and I went to have my knees checked with an x-ray machine immediately. There were no broken or fractured bones, only ligaments to the knees were stretched, which caused me pain. 

Not knowing what to do about my knee pain for about a month, I found out about Dr. Alfred Allina, who practices holistic medicine. I told him about my physical pain and after examination of my knees, he said that I should have Prolotherapy to help regenerate the knees ligaments. I agreed and had two treatments about a month apart. With each treatment he harvested two vials of blood, separated the platelets, and injected this solution into my knee joints.

With a few days after the first treatment, I had a significant reduction in pain and after two months, my knees were pain free. 

Now comes the real test. I told Dr. Allina I planned to go skiing for ten consecutive days in Colorado and he told me to avoid the black diamond runs and moguls. I listened to my doctor and skied for two to three hours everyday and I never had a bit of pain during the entire ten day vacation. 

This is the honest to goodness truth and I am standing by it, so help me God. 

Thank you Dr. Alfred Allina. 

Your patient,

Edward

Platelet Injections

By the time I was 45 years old I had already had 3 surgeries on my left shoulder. I have lived with tendonitis in my left arm for 15 years. I tried physical therapy, new drugs, and acupuncture with not much relief. There were times I would scratch my skin off my arm or bruise it from rubbing/itching it so hard to get relief.

While watching “The Doctors” on TV they told me about “Platelet Injections” for “tendonitis/tennis elbow”. So on the internet I went to find me a doctor that does platelet injections. To my surprise I could not find a doctor in Ohio who does this treatment. After talking to a woman at the OSU Hospital she told me they had patients go out of state for this treatment. So back to the internet I went to check out of states surrounding Ohio. And that is how I found Dr. Allina.

I drove 2 hours for my 1st appointment in Fort Wayne. After my 1 hour consultation we both agreed that I would benefit with platelet injections. He was kind enough to go ahead with my 1st treatment that day even though it was no scheduled because of the distance I drove. After my 1st injection I was please with getting some relief but a 2nd treatment was going to have to be done. After my 2nd injection I couldn’t believe how much better my arm was. In fact I was not sure if I needed to keep my 3rd appointment but I wanted to be sure that I was healed and pain free. 

I would encourage anyone to try this treatment. It is not a painful procedure. I worked 2 days later. I am a hairdresser to so my arms are my income. 

I am so happy with my outcome with platelet injections.

Doctor Allina,

     I came into your office a very skeptical person.  My niece recommended you and I wanted to trust her opinion.  After I came to your office and met you, I knew my niece was right.  I went through the procedure you recommended and I feel wonderful.  I had arthritis in my thumb joints with a lot of pain.  You have saved my hands from pain and I have been able to do much more than I anticipated.

     Thank you for that.  I would NOT be afraid to recommend you to anyone.

     Again, Thank you so much,

              Sandi G.
