I scheduled a visit with Dr. Messenger when I started to feel pain in my left foot. The doctor examined my foot carefully and advised me to start a regimen of physical therapy and to consider orthotic inserts. There was no pressure, and the final decision was left up to me. Physical therapy and exercise helped somewhat, but I still experienced pain and instability on my foot. I obtained the orthotics and I noticed a marked improvement, but I was far from fully rehabilitated. The doctor suggested an MRI to determine the specific area of pain. I was diagnosed with Sinus Tarsi Syndrome, an inflammation of a specific area in the foot. The doctor suggested PRP therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Therapy, where a centrifuge extracts the plasma from your blood and the plasma is injected into the area of inflammation.
This course of therapy produced concrete results over the next three weeks. I realized that I was nearly back to my old self, when I was walking unconsciously, without being concerned about the placement of my left foot. I would heartily recommend Doctor Messenger, not just for his medical expertise, but for his bedside manner, and communication skills, which are extraordinary. the staff, especially his receptionist, Yanni, was professional and always called the day prior to my to remind me of my scheduled appointment. I would heartily recommend the doctor for anyone experiencing foot pain, or discomfort.
