Low back pain

There are two main areas that require assessment in low back pain and both may be invloved. The sacro-iliac ligaments are the most frequent cause of unresolved chronic low back pain that we see in our patients. Prolotherapy is very effective is stabilizing low back pain from the sacro-iliac ligaments. Pain from the lumbar spine and disk injuries are more complicated and require careful assessment as pain may be from several sources. Patients often have MRI’s indicating mild, moderate or severe degenerative changes to disks, facets and foramens that can be both informative and misleading. A physical exam is essential to identify the specific source or sources of pain in the lumbar spine in order to treat it effectively.

When I came to Dr Mike, I had chronic pain from my osteoarthritis in my knees, and hip. Also very painful plantar fasciitis in my left foot. After one treatment I was much more mobile and after three treatments I am pain free and fully active. I had so many treatments before and none worked like Prolotherapy.


I had an amazing experience with my treatments here. Prolotherapy and PRP is an tremendous form of treatment to fix and heal a variety of joint problems and I doubt that there's anybody who does it better than Dr . Michael Cronin and his staff. I've always looked forward to going here as I feel very welcomed and I know how effective it is in my healing. I couldn't be happier!
