Client Testimonials

Back on the tennis court!

I have been playing tennis since I was about 8 years old. Unfortunately I suffered a severe elbow injury, which damaged tendons and ligaments in my inner, lower right elbow. At the time, the only real option to treat such an injury was with surgery that involved a long recovery period. I visited a renown elbow specialist in NYC at the Hospital for Special Surgery, who told me to treat it conservatively and get more PT before even considering the surgical route. At that point I decided I would not have the surgery, and resigned to the fact that I would probably never play tennis again.

Fast forward almost 15 years where I start my treatment regimen for my elbow with Dr. Kaplan. I first had the Tenex procedure done, followed by PRP therapy, and finally a few treatments of prolotherapy. I combined those treatments with about 12 sessions of physical therapy, and I am thrilled to say that I am back on the tennis court playing about 3 hours/week at a solid 4.0 level, all while being pain free for the first time in 16 years!   Granted, I am about 15 lbs. heavier, and 16 years older, so I don’t quite move as well as I did back in 1999, but the important thing is I am back out there thanks to the successful treatment I received from Dr. Kaplan!

Windsurfing without significant pain

I have been suffering from severe osteoarthritis of the right shoulder for five years. Before I started to see Dr Kaplan, I have tried physical therapy, herbal anti-inflammatory medicines, vibration therapy, and stem cell injections. These treatments provided some relief but I continued to have pain during windsurfing, and other strenuous activities. My shoulder was getting gradually worse, and was popping, rubbing, and grinding.

My quality of life was significantly affected. Windsurfing is my passion and I became depressed as it became increasingly more difficult for me to enjoy the sport. I was also having difficulty sleeping and using crutches which I need to use when I am not wearing my leg prosthesis.

I received three PRP treatments from Dr Kaplan. They were done under ultrasound guidance for accuracy. Dr Kaplan’s treatments have allowed me to windsurf longer and with out significant pain. I can move my shoulder with less popping and grinding and sleep better at night. Dr. Kaplan has a practical and knowledgeable approach. His evaluation by ultrasound at each treatment allows for better injection technique and with reduced discomfort.

Prolotherapy has truly been a success story for me. I had severe sciatic pain in my right calf. Standing or walking caused excruciating pain! On the pain scale, it was certainly a 10. I had never heard of prolotherapy before I’d gone to see Dr. Kaplan, and after having a neurosurgeon tell me that I needed surgery to fuse and cage vertebrae, I’d decided to try a more conservative approach first. After only three prolotherapy sessions, I am 100% pain free and have remained pain free for about 2 years. It would certainly be worth the time to consult with Dr. Kaplan. His staff is wonderful! Always pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Kaplan for pain management.

I have had disc issues in my neck for over 20 years. I have tried PT throughout the years, massage therapy, muscle relaxers, trigger point injections and chiropractic. My neck and upper trapezius ache all the time. Working on a computer, cutting the grass, working out – even simple sit-ups, and sleeping are difficult. I limit what I do to help alleviate pain and discomfort.

I had one prolotherapy treatment with Dr. Kaplan and I was amazed at how good I felt. I had forgotten what it felt like not to be in pain or constant discomfort. Dr. Kaplan explained everything he did prior to doing it. He was kind and compassionate during the treatment, and the office called to check on me the next day.

I had back and hip pain. My lower extremities were painful and weak. Back pain in the spine was at an 8+ on a scale of 1 – 10. I had trouble walking more than 10 feet without stopping to rest. Pain in my hip was at 10+, and my upper back was very weak. Chiropractic, physical therapy and medications didn’t alleviate anything. My activities of daily living went downhill. No gardening, sitting or standing for any length of time. My sleeping pattern was awful. Depression was increasing and energy was decreasing. I didn’t want to leave the house and life was horrible.

I’ve just had my second prolotherapy treatment on the lower back and now I’m able to walk without limping. I’m very thrilled with what little I have had as far as treatments so far. I’m looking forward to more treatments for my entire spine. I can’t wait!!

I am so excited to continue my treatment here at OWM Buffalo. Everyone here is fabulous. No one could ask for anything or anyone better. My entire experience has been without question, the BEST treatment and experience I’ve ever had. The entire staff is a prayer being answered! There are no words to define what all of them have done for me except “Angels”!
