I wanted to follow up to the previous post the wonderful progress I made...

I had continued for a 4th prolotherapy treatment in my lower back and it has been more than a year since that treatment and my lower back is completely healed. I continue to see a chiropractor for other sports injuries (wrists, elbows, knees, etc.) and he always comments as to how my sacrum is perfectly aligned and how I have such a health lower back. I have literally no pain anymore and I am able to weight lift, go hiking, wrestling, etc. without any difficulty.

I continued on with Dr. Hong for other injuries which took a backseat to my lower back for so many years. To date Dr. Hong has fixed a cervical issue I sustained from a car accident years ago - there was no disc injury, but the ligament in one of my neck vertebrae was loosened and he was able to treat me 3 times with prolotherapy which has made it completely go away. I had clicking in my neck and at times, it was painful in my neck to lift something above my head - but that has since all gone away.

I asked Dr. Hong about a third injury I have had for years, a clicking ankle, which would sometime become jammed and leave me limping. I've tried chiropractic care and seen sports specialists and they simply either adjusted and manipulated my ankle, for some relief, or gave me exercises to do - but it never worked. It turns out I had a loose and damaged ligament from a fall I took many years ago that never properly healed. Dr. Hong suggested PRP to maximize the results and within 2 injections my ankle was healed up.

One last thing I want to mention is the cost. From my profession, I know of doctors who perform similar treatments and they will cost you more than x5 as much as Dr. Hong will charge. I have searched from NYC to North Carolina once I started researching more about Prolotherapy and PRP and there isn't anyone I've come across who has the number of years of experience or can beat the cost of treatment as Dr. Hong.

I can't think Dr. Hong enough for giving me my freedom back. My entire family is grateful as well, as they knew for years the back pain and miserable life I was leading. I only wish I had met him sooner and not suffered for so long. Thank you again Dr. Hong!!

This doctor caused more pain for my daughter than when she had prior to seeing him. The bad thing is she told him she had Lyme and when I tried to get a hold of him to see what could be done, he never got back to me. This is after 3 times of calling and leaving a message. This is NOT professional! She could not afford a second visit and was not planning on taking a chance with him again. It has been months with the additional pain plus the original pain still going on.

I had my waist dislocated. I could not stretch myself at all. I visited to Dr. Kab S. Hong because he is an expert for backache. He treated my backahe using prolotheraphy.
I can stretch myself for just one day. I have no pain any more.
It is a miracle. Many poeple recommended acupuncture to me. I decided to have prolotheraphy. It was a good decision. It was just one time solution. Therefore, I strongly recommend Dr. Hong and prolotheraphy for those who have backache problems for long time.

Dr. Hong treated my back with prolotherapy and the results have been nothing short of amazing. For 17 years I have dealt with chronic, painful and sometimes incapacitating back pain due to a herniated disc. I have used all forms of painkillers (NSAIDs, narcotics, Cox-3 inhibitors, etc.), muscle relaxants (flexeril, valium), steroids such as prednisone and even been prescribed anti-seizure medications to block nerve pain. I have had chiropractic care, acupuncture, medical massage, deep tissue massage, physical therapy and tailored exercise programs with again, only temporary relief. I have tried Rolfing, Graston Technique, Active Release Technique, the DRX-9000 decompression machine with just temporary relief. I have even had facet blocks done and at times, when I was incapacitated, cortisone shots. Overall, I have probably spent tens of thousands of dollars over the last two decades getting out of pain.

During this time, I even had doctors question whether I was in pain or not because my symptoms were not in line with their medical knowledge. My pain would start in my hip and wrap around to the front going down the leg into the calf and foot, but it always skipped part of my thigh. I never lost any strength and could still workout when it was tolerable because exercise would often make it feel better. I had even consulted some of the best surgeons in the country regarding my problems, but they did not recommend surgery because I hadn??t lost strength and my symptoms were abnormal.

What I find so amazing about Dr. Hong and prolotherapy was that he knew immediately what was wrong. He explained how, due to an old disc injury years ago, my lower back and sacrum never really healed and the ligament was unstable. This instability was what had caused shifting in my sacrum, hips and lower back which lead to all types of back pain and referred pain and it really wasn??t the disc all this time. After a discussion, I decided to get prolotherapy treatment from Dr. Hong.

The procedure is a little painful, but tolerable and you are inflamed for several days which quickly goes away. But the benefits are amazing. After my first treatment, within a few weeks, my back stopped ??cracking?? every time I moved in my chair or got up from bed. The ligaments were beginning to tighten and along with that, my back pain was decreasing. After my first treatment and at 5 weeks, my pain was 60-70% reduced. After my second treatment and at 11 weeks, I was 95% pain free. I have just completed my third and hopefully final treatment and I am looking forward to the results in several more weeks.

If you are wondering what it is and if it??s worth it, please know I had never heard of it until just a few months ago. My recommendation would be to just set up an appointment and let Dr. Hong explain how he can help. And if you do elect to receive prolotherapy, I would recommend having it done on a Friday so you can rest for two days before returning to work. Overall, I couldn??t be happier ?? I have spent more time doing the things I enjoy now without the constant, nagging back and sometimes incapacitating pain that has been a part of my life for so long.

Thank you Dr. Hong!!!

I have a history of neck pain and knee pain, which was interfering with my sleeping and day to day functioning. On bad days my pain was 8/10. I wanted a solution and not to just cover up the pain with medications. I received prolotherapy to my neck and prolotherapy/PRP to my knees. Dr Hong is wonderful. He takes the time to listen to your concerns and really tries to fix the problem as completely as possible. Now I am able to sleep through the night and perform daily activities with no or minimal discomfort. I highly recommend going to Dr Hong for prolotherapy. I traveled from NJ to PA and it was worth the long ride.

I am a chiropractor, I exercise, stretch and get adjusted regularly and live pain free for the most part. Last winter while shoveling snow I began to develop medial epicondylitis (golfer's elbow) of my right elbow and shortly after the left as well. As the winter and snow continued my lateral elbows started to feel it as well. I suffered, stretched, iced and used a theraband tool to stretch all with little help it hurt to even grab an object. Finally on Friday April 8, 2011 I went Dr. Hong for prolotherapy of both elbows lateral and medial sides immediately after I felt pain, stiffness and acute tenderness throughout that weekend, but by May I was 95% better and even did a mini triathlon. It's now four months later and I feel 100% better. Dr. Hong is the best and I was shocked by how much better I feel and how quick it happened I was in a lot of pain for about 4 months prior to treatment.

I had tennis elbow and carpul tunnel . I did the steroid thing, cortisone,and it helped for a short time. I was still having cronic pain, and I had seen the other reviews about Dr. Hong M.D. , and talked to one of his past patients, that he helped. I called and made an appointment. I also called another doctor is Cherry hill NJ, and My visit would of cost $1000.00, and Doctor Hong';s visit was $400.00 . Im glad I chose this doctor to do this. I must agree that he really knows what he is doing.
I went for 1 session, and now its 1 months later, and pain is almost gone.
Thanks Dr. Hong
