Concussion symptoms kept Gagne out of all but 25 games last season. Those are gone, he says, thanks to an innovative injection therapy called prolotherapy.
Gagne, 28, first heard about the procedure while watching a health segment on a Philadelphia news channel.
“When I first saw Simon back in April, he had neck pain, dizziness and real bad headaches,” Greenberg said. “But he also had a tilt to his pelvis and some back pain. His symptoms were very similar to whiplash.”
Gagne had a series of anesthetic injections in his neck, head, shoulders, pelvis and back. Greenberg said the injections are generally made up of two anesthetics and an inflammatory agent such as dextrose or cod liver extract.
