Patient Testimonial: Mike McClanahan

At Flexogenix®, we are proud to offer non-surgical solutions for joint pain. Our solutions have helped over 40,000 patients eliminate chronic pain and return to an active lifestyle.

But you don’t have to take our word for it! We interviewed one of our long-time patients, Mike, to hear more about how his treatments have helped him. Mike graciously allowed us to share his experiences in this blog post.

What joints did you have treated with Flexogenix®?

I had my knee and my ankle treated with Flexogenix®. I was suffering from chronic pain in both joints and needed relief, but did not want to have a joint replacement.

Can you describe your daily activities before and after treatment?

Before treatment, normal activities like standing and walking up the stairs were difficult. After the treatment, these activities were no problem at all.

How was the injection process? 

The clinic staff was friendly and answered all my questions. At each check in, they give you a short questionnaire to see how you’re feeling since your last injection to monitor your progress and make sure that the treatments are working. Once I was in the chair, the process was quick and easy. The injection was painless and was performed with ultrasound so that the gel went to the exact right spot. They then give you ice after for around 5 minutes to prevent swelling. I drove myself to and from the appointment, and I never missed a step! There was no recovery time at all, the relief from pain was instant for me. And with the HA injections, my pain level improved continuously each week.

What was your pain level before and after treatment?

Before treatment, my pain level was about a 7 or 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 just while doing basic day-to-day things like standing up. I was unable to get up from bed or a chair without pain, or to go up and down stairs. Now, my pain is really low, maybe a 1 or 2 on the same scale. And I am able to get up from my bed or a chair, and go up and down stairs, completely pain free!

What would you say to someone considering treatments with Flexogenix®?

I would highly recommend they try it. First, it’s quick - they get you in and out in no time at all. Second, it’s non-invasive. I didn’t have to miss any work, or have any downtime for rehab or recovery. You are in and out in no time at all and you don’t have to wait around at all. Lastly, it just works. It depends on the person, but for me I usually get about 9 months to a year of relief and then I can just come back for another round when needed.
