Dr. Gauthier is incredible! I had never been to a chiropractor and was hesitant, but it was my last resort as my other doctors recommended a surgical solution,. I had back issues for years and would get steroid shots a few times a year. My son and daughter-in-law were treated by Dr. Don, and they recommended I see him before opting for any surgery. In addition to back problems, I also had pain in my shoulder and arms for over a year. He was able to pinpoint the problems right away. I don’t need steroid shots any longer! I felt like a new person after only a few visits. I go bak for adjustments, and I am now pain free. I have absolute trust in his ability to keep my back and body in optimal shape. I would highly recommend Dr. Don/his practice. They really care about their patients.

I could barely move my right arm (I'm right-handed) without tremendous pain. I chose this office because I had previously attended a stem cell seminar that was hosted by Dr. Gautheir and was very impressed by him and the information he presented. Prior to receiving the treatment, I was experiencing a lot of pain in my right shoulder and arm. The pain was so bad I pretty much had given up using my right arm for anything other than requiring movement of my right shoulder and/or arm.

I was skeptical of the PRP treatment, I'll admit. I did, however, try to keep an open mind and certainly hoped that it would work or else I felt my only other option was surgery. Honestly, the difference between how my shoulder and arm felt prior to PRP and after, is amazing. Prior to, I couldn't even use my right arm to move my bed covers off of me and now I don't even think twice about it. Prior to, I couldn't use my right arm to open a door to an office building if it required pulling it open, now I can. I would highly recommend this protocol, it's definitely worth trying at least, especially if you want to avoid surgery.

Happy Stem Cell Patient

I have been coming to this office for almost 14 years. The arthritis pain in my right hip is the only pain that we were not able to resolve through chiropractic adjustments,exercise,and/or Physical Therapy.

Prior to receiving the Stem Cell injection, the pain in my right hip was nearly constant. Walking was usually painful, and some days I couldn't even manage a walk around the grocery store. My normal rigorous strength-training was becoming too painful, and I was losing muscle strength in my legs. On bad days, rolling over in bed was painful. I had Stem Cell therapy 3 and a half weeks ago. The pain relief began the day after the injection. I didn't expect to feel results for the first few weeks, but after 3 and a half weeks I'm feeling significant improvement, about 80%.

I'm so exited to see how much better I will feel after the Stem Cell therapy completes over the next few months. Thank You, Dr. Gauthier, for giving me back my life!

If you are "on the fence" about REGENERATIVE MEDICINE, I would like for you to hear my story:

Two years ago I had knee pain. I visited doctors and receive cortisone shots over the next few months. With no relief a year and a half ago, I had arthroscopic knee surgery. I was off work for a little over a week, my husband also missed work to care for me, and then I went through 8 weeks of physical therapy. After being cleared from PT, I still had knee pain. Sadly, the surgery didn't help my knee pain.

I was frustrated and upset. Then "Dr. G" told me about PRP therapy. I did one treatment about seven months ago. It amazing to say but "IT WORKED" I no longer have knee pain. I wish I knew about this therapy before surgery. I would not have gone through the pain of surgery, and ALL the copays + surgery costs.

If someone could fix chronic pain you currently have, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Happy Stem Cell Patient

I had an Injured Knee for a long time. I had a lot of confidence in the doctor’s and did not want to continue in pain nor consider surgery. I felt and I was too young to be so incapacitated! I was in a lot of pain and had trouble walking even with a cane. I was barely able to walk and did not seem to be getting any better doing nothing.

Finally, I attended to a seminar hosted by Dr. Gauthier. I found studies online indicating good results with Stem Cells, particularly for Injured Knees. After doing a bit of research, I decided to go ahead with treatment. My life changed a lot, I am now able to walk normally, and the knee seems mostly better with only a bit of stiffness on some days.

NOW, I can say that I am so happy with the results of the Stem Cell therapy and Physical Therapy follow up. I would like to recommend you checking out what they have to offer, if you are facing similar issues!

In December 2018, I woke up with pain in my neck. It wasn’t going away; so, I saw a chiropractor plus a neck doctor, who had me do PT. After x-ray, MRI, and three surgeon visits, I was told extensive surgery and recovery time was a must. Then, I googled help for degenerative arthritis and AWC popped up. I was able to see Dr. G immediately. Dr. G read my MRI report, we discussed options, and I went with four PRP injections. 

After the first injection, I was able to sleep through the night and turn my head while sleeping and I hadn’t been able to do that in four months. My neck improved each time with each injection. I’m so grateful for new medical breakthroughs and for Dr. G taking advantage of the new medical treatments available (so I could avoid surgery).
