TESTIMONIALS

I had been suffering with low back pain for the last 10 years. I had my lower back and SI joints injected with Amniotic Tissue injection 8 weeks ago. I would get roughly 6 sciatic pain episodes per year and these episodes affected me for two weeks at a time and would put me in bed for the first 3 days of the episode. My husband and I like to travel and I would have difficulty with the sciatica during our vacations following an airplane ride or long car ride. I was always taking pain medication to deal with the pain.

I can tell you that since I had my procedure with the stem cells, I have been on 2 airplane trips and 2 long car drive trips and I actually can’t believe it……no pain – no episodes! This is amazing!

I decided to have the stem cell therapy because I am only 50 years old and I did not want to end up with the sciatic pain on a daily basis. I kept hearing the recommendation to have this procedure done earlier rather than later and I thought to myself that I don’t want it to get out of control, but over the years it has just gotten worse – more episodes, and the episodes lasted longer as time went on. I am still shocked at the benefits I have gotten from these amniotic stem cells – I would absolutely recommend this to others, especially those like me that the arthritis is just starting to get bad!

Thank you Scott Medicel Center – I think you saved my life – I am living without pain! – Debra L.

I have had fibromyalgia for about 3 years. My symptoms were pain just about all over. I would get muscle spasms in the upper arms and in my hip and thigh area. At times my hands would swell so bad that I could not wear my good wedding rings or a watch for over a year. In the winter, I would have my husband drive me to work. It affected our lives in many ways, I would hurt really bad so I could not go out to a lot of places with my husband that we use to go to. I would miss at least a day or two of work a week. After starting treatment at Scott Medical Health Center with Dr. Savko, I have had great improvement in the level of pain I now have. I don’t miss as much work as I did and my boss and friend at work have even commented on how much better I am doing. I would recommend Scott Medical Health Center to anyone that has some kind of disability that stops you from everyday tasks that we do.   – Donna C.
 
Before I started the program, I was having trouble for walking 5 minutes and also walking up a flight of stairs. While I was at work my mid back was constantly in pain and also standing for a long period of 10 minutes was difficult. I also was having trouble getting up from sitting after a long period of time to walking. My legs were so weak that several times I felt like I was going to fall. Since coming here to the health center, 5 days a week for 2 months, I have to say I feel a whole lot better. From getting the massages and the physical therapy and having the chiropractic care, I really feel better and my pain has decreased, I also am sleeping better. I have more energy to do things and have been less depressed. I highly recommend the fibromyalgia program.   – Sharon M.
 
When I started at Scott Medical Health Center I was severely fatigued, had an inability to focus, I suffered with depression, I felt like I had the flu 24 hours a day. These symptoms had been going on for 14 years. I was envious of others and their ability to enjoy life. I couldn’t pursue my interests in music because I saved what little energy I had for work and chores around the house. I existed instead of living. They’ve tested my heart and lungs repeatedly and found nothing wrong. Since I have been at Scott Medical, my symptoms have all but disappeared. My energy level is normal and I’m able to function easily at work and at home. I’m on cloud nine right now, I’ve joined my church choir and its great to have energy to enjoy the practices and singing in church. We’ve had several concerts and I’ve had more than enough energy to thoroughly enjoy the experience. This treatment has given me my life back. My family is thrilled. They say I look and sound so much better. Without any doubts, I would recommend Scott Medical to my family and friends.   – Kathy M.
 
I felt like Scott Medical was my last hope. My fibromyalgia pain and especially my fatigue had worsened to the degree where I was too tired to do or enjoy much of anything. Gradually, as I went through the program my fatigue lessened; I could exercise my arms and legs without pay back pain afterwards. I looked forward to the massages (oh, heaven!) and my other treatments. Since I am on Medicare and have had fibro most of my adult life, it was a miracle for me to find a worthwhile plan for recovery. I am looking forward to a trip in November which I could never ever consider in the spring of this year. I would recommend Scott Medical to my friends and anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia. My rheumatologist and other chiropractors did not help me. The staff is super nice and caring, especially Linda K.; Massages by Robin were awesome. All of the staff are very knowledgeable about fibromyalgia.   – Virginia W.
 
After another family vacation, where I was afraid to wear a swimsuit; or terrified of breaking a lawn chair; or had to rest on my 4-block walk to the beach; I decided, what could a consultation hurt? The Lifestyle Plan that the counselor presented to me seemed reasonable and affordable, so I signed up that day. With the tools and support from Scott Medical Center along with sheer determination, I’ve lost over 100 lbs in about 8 months. It finally clicked for this “yo-yo dieter” – eating healthy is a lifestyle. I’m full of energy. I went sled riding with my young nephew this winter. Not only did I fit in the tube sled, but we hiked 1/8 of a mile up a snow-covered hill about 20 times. I’m not nervous to get on an airplane – the seatbelt now fits with plenty of room to spare. On a recent trip, I even sat comfortably in the dreaded “center seat.” My husband smiled and said, “Now…you’re showing off.” I even bought a swimsuit for summer vacation. I could go on and on about how different my life is now.   – Regina W.
 
My symptoms of numbness, pain and tingling were giving me difficulty walking, especially with going up and down stairs. I tried treatments and drugs and found that nothing was easing the symptoms I was having. During my treatment at Scott Medical, my feet feel lighter and they do not feel as cramped as they did previously. The shots I received in the back of my legs from the doctors also helped very much. I would recommend this treatment. During my treatment, the staff was very helpful. They did a very good job!   – Melva T.
 
Originally I had soreness in my shoulder blade; I was taking several milligrams of Ibuprofen or Motrin a day with no signs of getting rid of it. After about 6 months the pain went away so I just let it go, but then I lost feeling in my pinky finger of my right hand. Through Scott Medical, I found out more about my body than I knew before. For example, Lidocaine injections reduce the inflammation around the nerve; it helped a lot! The pain was gone within a week in my shoulder blade. So then we worked on rehab, infrared, ultrasound, a TENS unit and they gave me a posture pump for my neck that I used daily. It seemed like it was really helping tremendously. After a month and a half, I got the feeling back in my fingers. So within that month and a half I had about 90 percent recovery just from the pinched nerve and I was really happy with it.   – Robert P.
 
I had been experiencing right shoulder pain and had low back problems from an injury. I had been receiving care for these problems and doing passive exercises at home but I was still suffering from pain and not sleeping well. After attending a workshop and receiving the evaluation from Dr. Wohar at Scott Medical, I became a patient and I began passive therapies and adjustments. I started to experience some relief, but in the meantime, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was carefully tested in the rehabilitation department and began a treatment plan which measurably increased my range of motion from an 18% impairment to a 5% impairment. One of the most helpful treatments I received was the injections at the site of the trigger points along my arm and leg. Even after the first time I received them, I was amazed at the relief I felt. I was sleeping better and living more pain free.   – Ingrid S.
 
One morning I awoke with flu-like symptoms, extreme fatigue and nausea. I also experienced joint and muscle pain. When the symptoms never abated and I was finding it difficult to complete the most menial task, I went to my medical doctor and he ordered extensive blood work thinking it may have been an underactive thyroid, but the blood work came back normal. The symptoms persisted, plus I was having tingling and numbness in my feet. I wasn’t getting better and no one could understand why I was so sick and fatigued all the time. Through the course of seeing 8 more doctors, I was tested for AIDS, cancer, M.S. and by this time, I was totally devastated. I heard an ad on the radio about Scott Medical Health Center and I cried all the way to this appointment fearing that again someone would tell me “it is all in your head.” What I found was a caring group of doctors and staff who understood what I was experiencing. I began a multi-therapy program and was given homeopathic injections in my trigger points, which greatly relieved my pain. After one month, my range of motion was greatly improved; I could now carry my groceries into the house with more energy and less pain. It was like a miracle. I would plead with anyone who had suffered as I have to go to Scott Medical Health Center. There is help, understanding, and above all, hope.   – Carla S.

I had the Amniotic Tissue Matrix injection done for my right knee pain. I had been suffering for 6 months due to a torn meniscus. I had my injections done 4 weeks ago and I’m already feeling better, where the tear is located is still a little sore. The injection itself was painless and would recommend the treatment to others; I’ve already passed information on to others. I decided to do this procedure to avoid surgery. I would like others to experience the same results that I’ve got. – Joyce C.
I had the Amniotic Tissue Matrix Injection done for my left knee pain. I have been suffering for 5 years. I had the injection done 3 weeks ago and my pain has come down significantly. The injection procedure did not hurt and I would definitely recommend this procedure to others. I chose to do this procedure because I was tired of living in pain and I did not want to have a major operation. I would like others to experience the same results. – Bill V.
I had been suffering with bilateral knee pain and left ankle pain for the past year that all started with a twist the wrong way. Since my Amniotic Tissue Matrix injection, my pain level has lessened and I’m seeing great improvement. The injection itself was not painful and it is a much better option than invasive knee surgery. I’m already recommending the Amniotic Tissue Matrix to others. – Peggy K.
I received the Amniotic Stem Cell procedure for my left knee and my lower back one and a half weeks ago. I had been suffering with left knee pain for 8 or 9 years and low back pain for the same amount of time. I had previously had my right knee and both hips replaced and was very unhappy with the results. My replaced knee hurt as much or worse than my left knee. I decided to have the procedure done to my knee and my low back because I was absolutely not having surgery ever again! I was so happy to have found this option because I wanted a better quality of life with less pain! Since my amniotic stem cell injection on and a half weeks ago, my knee feels 80 – 90% better with very little pain. My low back is much better and different movements I make are up to 50% better with little pain. The injection did not hurt and I have already recommended this procedure to 20 – 30 people. – Robert W.
I received the Amniotic Stem cell procedure for both of my knees one and a half weeks ago. I had been suffering with knee pain for about 12 years and I refused to listen to the doctors who left me with the only option of getting them replaced. I wanted to investigate the stem cells because Ijust wanted to get out of pain. My husband had a knee replacement 8 years ago. After seeing him go through the tremendous pain and that knee feels terrible and gives him pain still today, I vowed to never have my knees replaced — I decided to live with the pain — what difference did it make — the surgery would not eliminate my pain. My knees feel great —I can’t believe it! This is the first time I have slept in 12 years! I used to wake up several times a night with leg pain — it’s gone! I have already recommended this procedure to everyone I know — I have already started to refer this procedure to 25 or more of my friends and family. – Patricia W.
My name is Warren C. I had been suffering with low back and hip pain for the past 20 years and bilateral thumb pain for the past 15 years. I had gotten information regarding the breakthrough medical treatment regarding Amniotic Tissue Matrix stem cell treatment and called Scott Medical Health Center to schedule a complimentary consultation to find out more about this treatment.

I was desperate! I was tired of living with the pain. I couldn’t walk distances, I couldn’t stand for periods of time. I coach the high school sofiball team and just wanted my normal life back.

I had my low back and hip injected 3 weeks ago and I saw pretty quick improvement in my pain levels. I cut back on my pain medication which is great. I was tired of taking so many pain pills just to get through a day, a sofiball practice or game. The Amniotic Tissue Matrix injection did not hurt, it was just uncomfortable.

I have family members that I would like to recommend this procedure for and would like to help others experience similar results. – Warren C.

I had been suffering with low back pain for the last 25 years. I had my Amniotic Tissue injection a week and a half ago and my pain levels went from a 10/10 pain level to a 1/10 pain level. I was so surprised at how quickly the pain was reduced. I had my injection to the low back on the Thursday before Easter and was able to prepare and cook my Easter dinner for two days without any pain. I have been cooking holiday dinners for over 25 years and have had to sit down while preparing dinner because of the pain. I had no pain during the two days of holiday prepping and cooking. The injection did not hurt — it was only an ache the first two days and the pain was completely gone by the third day — just in time to prepare the Easter dinner. I decided to do this procedure because I was tired of living in pain and surgery was not an option that I would consider. I would absolutely recommend this procedure to others and hope that my testimonial allows others to make the decision to have the amniotic tissue injections. I am still shocked at how good I feel. – Linda H.
