I have four key points that were really bothering me. First is changing positions, it would really bother me; it was really difficult. The second thing is walking up and down the stairs, dragging one foot from the other. The third was when I'm sleeping, whenever I turned over my knee, the pain would wake me. The fourth is, it would be very difficult when walking distance for more than 10 minutes. What I found after having the treatment of the steroid injection then 5 Hyalgan shots was the changing positions was greatly improved. I can walk up and down the stairs normally even if it was slow-paced, which is a vast improvement. Sleeping when i turn over doesn't wake me. I can sleep more peacefully. My endurance for walking is much improved. I can walk about 25 mins to half hour before discomfort. I feel the overall benefit. I would do this again in a heartbeat. I am 75-80% better on my own knees., which is a lot to me; without a doubt.My hand used to hurt me a lot. I have basilar arthritis on the left joint. I had one steroid injection and a couple of therapy sessions and its 80% better now. I can open a jar with little difficulty. Before, I could not open a jar at all. I don't have that intense hurt anymore.
My treatments are making me feel so much better. The first injection was a big improvement. So happy to be here as a patient. My walking is easy.
My hands are feeling so much better.
Feeling a lot better. Very pleased with the outcome. has never felt that way for so many years. Now i can brush my hair, button up my clothes, do things without discomfort.
Thank you for giving me my life back. When i came to you two months ago, I felt as if my right knee was broken. Your treatments progressively reduced my pain and gave me most of my mobility back. I truly appreciate your care and approach to dealing with joint pain. I had two rounds of Synvisc injections, neither of which relieved the apin. Your combination of PT, ultrasound guided injections, and sequencing of treatments really made a difference. You provide hope in averting knee replacement.
I came to Ramapo Joint and Spine with a high level of pain in both knees and a lack of flexibility. After four injection shots, my pain has greatly decreased. I am more flexible and can walk up and down.
For more than a year I couldn't put on my socks or stand for more than 10 minutes without pain stopping me. Now I can reach my feet to put on my socks, go for long walks and play tennis again.
Before it was very painful. I couldn't lift the fork when eating, couldn't lift arm to put on my shirt. Now I am back to normal lifestyle. I am able to eat and dress myself without feeling pain. I really appreciate it.
I was leaving for Ireland and my right knee was hurting. I went to the doctor and he gave me a cortisone shot and said I was bone on bone and would have to have knee replacement. I had my left knee replaced and was not happy with the results and was not going thru that again.
I heard about Ramapo Joint and Spine on 710 radio and decided to drive to Suffern from Queens. it is the best ride i have taken. I felt better after my first shot. No pain in my knee and my leg is much stronger. I am very happy with the results.
In my early 40's dislocated left shoulder and had it reset; at 45 years old primary physician diagnosed arthritis and at 50 years old I can hardly move my arm. It was difficult to do my job as an electrician with decreaed mobility; for 20 years this problem remained, but not now at 70 years old I'm 70% better. I can sleep so much better, my mobility has increased, and I'm very happy with my results.
