Joint Health Testimonials
Joe, 53 years old. "I offer my highest recommendation to this process that stimulates the healing response."
"In 2010, I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knees and told I would eventually need knee replacements. At the time I was in my mid 50’s and considered young for such a surgery. I managed the pain with ice and ibuprofen for some years and in 2013 I returned to my orthopedic doctor for follow up X-rays. He said little had changed and that I was a candidate for knee replacements in 2010. He commented that “we won’t tell you when it’s time, you’ll tell us.” Around that time, I began to do two things. I received orthovisc injections every six months to treat the pain by lubricating the joints and I began a weekly regime of low impact, high intensity interval training to maintain leg strength. I discontinued the orthovisc injections in 2016 because the exercise seemed to work equally well.
In July of 2019, I scheduled a visit with Dr. Tony Bianco, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, to begin prolotherapy. I received prolotherapy injections for three consecutive months from Dr. Bianco and the results have been remarkable. I have increased mobility and improved knee comfort due to the absence of pain than I have enjoyed for many years. I maintain my exercise program with new vigor. At work I do 30 sets of stairs 30 times a day pain free.
I am a quality of life advocate and I offer my highest recommendation to this process that stimulates the healing response. Ten years later, I am happy to say that I have avoided knee surgery and continue to maintain an active lifestyle"
Paul, 62 years old. Dr. Bianco's cutting edge treatment allows Paul to be pain free.
"Prolotherapy over the past years has given me the ability to continue my work. I have a history of arthritis in knees, hip and foot, trigger finger and rotator cuff partial tear from an accident. Prolotherapy has helped get me back walking 3 miles, lifting weights and get back to golfing regularly. The ability to do what I enjoy has provided happiness and the strength to keep working. I've had cortisone injections in the past that provided temporary relief, but for my trigger finger it has been over one-and-a-half years since prolotherapy and still no pain today. Thanks Dr. Tony for allowing me to continue my career and live joyfully!"
Jo, 50 years old. "Thanks to Dr. Bianco, I feel like my whole body is online"
Before a visit with Dr. Bianco I felt like docs and practitioners were trying to pinpoint THE THING that was the cause of headaches and some biomarkers that were too high. There was nothing major, just a general malaise of symptoms that others seemed to just shrug their shoulders to. It wasn’t “serious” so I should be content they seemed to say. But it was impacting how I felt and moved in the world. I knew I was not close to optimal and I didn’t want to settle. A friend recommended Dr. Bianco. To be honest, I don’t know what I expected from his osteopathic background, but I’m really happy for the experience. Thanks to Dr. Bianco I feel like my whole body is online. The structural bones and muscles are actually communicating with the rest of my systems, organs, blood and lymph flows. In the past, chiropractors have tried, but I feel it was a quick fix of alignment, that didn’t address the more subtle systems that make up the whole complex picture of the human body. Thirty seconds in Dr. Bianco asked “What did you do to this ankle?” I had no clue, but he started there, with a combo of a stretch to my foot and pressure to my shin that felt amazing. He ended with pressure in parts of my neck and head that I had never felt before. It was strong but subtle. Direct but comprehensive. Isolated but totally inclusive. I’m not sure how to put it in words how it made me feel other than to say, I’m coming back for more.
Val, 59 years old. Dr. Bianco uses cutting edge medicine for joint restoration
It’s hell to get old and have so many aches and pains. I am truly lucky to have access to Dr. Bianco and his array of knowledge with muscle and joint pain. There are times when my hip and lower back go out and I can’t stand up straight or walk correctly. An MRI showed a bulging disc with bone lesions. Dr. Bianco has done manipulation along with prolotherapy to my lower back twice. The relief it brings is amazing. I am going on 10 months without the need for additional treatment on my lower back.
Last April I fell and broke my collar bone. The surgery to repair that was quite extensive as it was a horrible break. I have continual pain in my shoulder but Dr. Bianco was able to inject it with a steroid to settle the pain at it’s worse. He also has peptide patches in his arsenal that he uses on my shoulder for anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties. The pain relief from the patches last for several days and if I use them regularly for 2 – 3 weeks I can get months of relief from them. I absolutely recommend Dr. Bianco!
