I injured my back a couple of years ago because of improperly lifting. I felt the injury occur and the pain was so severe.

I proceeded to see my doctors for help. I did the appropriate testing as recommended and tried every treatment I could. I did physical therapy, steroids, and anti-inflammatory medications. I did see my osteopath who would fix me and I would get some relief but within a day or 2, the pain would come back.

It was affecting my life significantly. I couldn’t play with my children, I couldn’t exercise, and even daily activities were difficult. I couldn’t sleep because just rolling over in the bed was painful and would wake me up. Once I got up in the morning, it would take about 10 minutes for me to walk upright.

This lasted a year before my Osteopath recommended Dr. Landry at Landry Osteopathic Healthcare in Auburn, Maine for PRP.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy is a regenerative treatment that uses a concentrated form of your own blood’s platelets to promote healing and reduce pain. The process involves drawing a small amount of your blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then injecting this platelet-rich plasma into the injured area to accelerate tissue repair and reduce inflammation.

I wasn’t sure because it wasn’t guaranteed so I thought I would continue to try other things first. Fast forward another year of pain and not being able to live my life well, I decided to just go for it because nothing was working and the depression was really hitting me hard.

I did my consultation with Dr. Landry and he told me about realistic expectations and the treatment schedule.

After the first treatment, I didn’t see too much of a difference but was hopeful. After the second I noticed the pain was much better so I looked forward to the third recommended treatment of the package. Once I did the third, within a week, I was 100% back to normal. I could have cried with joy when I woke up and felt good. I was cautious but realized soon that the pain just wasn’t there.

I am seeing Dr. Landry now for maintenance and it is worth every penny and every treatment.

I have my life back. I am playing and dancing with my kids. I am back to exercising. I can sleep without pain. This is magical.

The treatment itself is quick. I was in and out in 40 minutes. It is uncomfortable as expected but Dr. Landry has Pronox gas that really takes the edge off and makes it just an annoying discomfort. The recovery is easy as well. 1-2 days of soreness but better after then.

If you suffer from any back pain, it doesn’t hurt to get an assessment from Dr. Landry. If he thinks you would benefit, I highly recommend you do it!
