I’m thinking of trying PRP for Gabe’s arthritis. He has a pinched nerve around the hinge of his spine which has caused sever abdominal seizures. He also has bad arthritis affecting all joints, including a major loss of cartilage and muscle in his shoulders and hips. He still does well on Gabapentin and Meloxicam for the most part, but I’m looking for a more long term solution, and more solutions as he gets older as I know it will only get worse. His quality of life is still great at this point, he loves his walks and insists they be at least two hours a day. But I can see he is in pain. (More dramatic pain if he doesn’t move around as much, so walks seem to do him good). I also use the back on track wraps and they worked wonders for him, but now the effectiveness seems less and less. No doubt because of the scar tissue that is forming as his arthritis gets worse. He’s on cbd, and all the omega and glucosamine, MSM, and chondroitin supplements with bromelian and boswelia. If I can trick him into eating devil’s claw I will try that as well. Laser therapy does not seem to do anything, and cartophen started to make him sick. Too many meds in general make him sick which makes his arthritis flare up.
