Deidre Ellington – Non-surgical Treatment for Knee Arthritis

IMG_1869I am 56 with arthritis in both knees. The pain, stiffness and inflammation started in 2009 has increased with the passing of each year. I was eventually diagnosed with a torn Meniscus in my left knee. Arthroscopic surgery provided some relief. A once very active lifestyle of walking, jogging and rollerskating dwindled to watching television. I was in pain whether I was standing, sitting or lying in bed. Going up and down the stairs became a major undertaking. One day a coworker who had knee replacement surgery told me about Dr. Boyd Haynes III so I made the call and set up an appointment.

Dr. Haynes diagnosed the arthritis, prescribed an anti-inflammatory and recommended visco-supplementation…Supartz. The shots are amazing! My PA, Chris gives painless shots! If you are considering knee replacement I would advise Supartz as an alternative. I am PAIN FREE! I can walk without pain. I can sit without pain. I can sleep all night without the slightest bit of pain. I’m 15 pounds lighter because I was able to return to an active lifestyle. Thank you Dr. Haynes!
