Testimonials: Neck Pain
Lorna Case, Construction Estimator
Six years ago, I landed on my head during a parachute jump at Fort Bragg, NC. I tore every ligament in my neck, had multiple bulging discs, tore my ribcage away from my spine, a head injury, my tailbone was broken, tore my sacroiliac joints, the first 4 ribs on the right side of my ribcage stuck out so much that it looked like I had 4 clavicles, tore my jaw ligaments, etc...Read More

Seven years ago I was hit by a bus as a pedestrian. I injured my back, neck and hips. I saw many doctors and went through two years of physical therapy. My orthopedic surgeon told me to get things in order and to prepare to send the rest of my life in a wheel chair (I was 29 at the time of the accident). This was dificult for me to accept. The orthopedic surgeon told me about Dr. Friedlis and the work he does with prolotherapy. He suggested I try this, as anything was worth a shot....
I spent countless hours researching this, and even contacted Dr. C. Everett Koop. I had read an article that mentioned that Dr. Koop went through prolo treatment...I finally decided to try prolotherapy. Dr. Friedlis was wonderful! His care and concern for my overall well being gave me great peace of mind. After two years of prolotherapy, I was much stronger and best of all, no wheel chair! It has been three years since my last treatment. I am much better. I work out at the gym regularly and live an active live. Thanks Dr. Friedlis!

I was involved in a car accident at the age of 23 in which I fractured my neck and sustained other injuries. From that day forward, my purse was full of pills and I was full of pain. I tried massage therapy, chiropractic care, physical therapy, cortisone injections and the list goes on. I refused to give up and each time a doctor told me there was nothing more they could do....
During my first visit with Dr. Balint, I cried as I told him of my pain and asked him to never give up on me. He never did. I spent the next few years with the practice trying other methods and finally took his advice to try Prolotherapy. Through the wonderful care of Dr. Freidlis, Dr. Balint, the rest of the staff and Prolotherapy, I have not taken a single pill in several weeks and I have almost no pain!

I'm only 27, and...have been through years of lower back and neck pain from a car accident. I tried every injection, block, drug, and exercise in the book and had very little to no relief.
I have been getting prolotherapy injections for the past 4 months in my neck and lower back, and have felt a world of difference.... nothing compared to the fact that I can turn my head, read a book, and ride my bike again. I'm getting my life back, and I have Dr. Friedlis to thank for this. I've finally found a doctor I can trust!
Cheryl Carte, School Bus Driver
I was hit by a drunk driver while driving a school bus carrying 41 passengers. It was a critical turning point in my life. There were 6 of us, which was a miracle, injured on the bus. The young man who hit us received two broken legs, several ribs and his passenger was ejected and sustained several serious injuries.
Loa Delaney, Nurse
Two years ago I was injured in an automobile accident that resulted in neck immobility as well as severe and chronic pain. After undergoing several alternative treatments, I was referred to Dr. Wagner by my internist. At the onset, I was told to expect results that would allow me to regain 75 to 80% use of my neck at best.
However, after only five prolotherapy treatments, I have 100% mobility and 0% pain. I was so impressed with the results that I have asked Dr. Wagner to treat a 30 year old knee injury and I am already experiencing tremendous improvement. My recovery has been nothing short of a miracle. Such relief. I can't thank Dr. Wagner enough.
