After multiple efforts with various practitioners, Mr. Sumner came to see us at the Osteopathic Center. Sumner’s severe back pain was coupled with severe instability in his lumbar spine; pain traveled down his legs. We performed 2 stem cell treatments 3 weeks apart, and 2 weeks later he was able to return to his full, rigorous workout routine.

Failed back surgery / Cluster headaches
As a care provider with a background in traditional medicine, Matt was reluctant to try anything different than conventional methods of treatment. But when surgery was recommended after his condition worsened, weakening his arm and further increasing his pain, he decided to visit Dr. Goddard for prolotherapy and PRP. After these treatments, combined with acupuncture and manipulation, he achieved a total resolution of symptoms. Later, when a sports injury left him with a torn meniscus, he immediately came to the Osteopathic Center for a similar treatment. He was again able to avoid surgery and is back to an active, pain-free lifestyle.

An avid tennis player, Linda began having localized pain due to plantar fasciitis, as well as knee, hip, and back pain. Her discomfort made it difficult for her to walk, let alone lead the active lifestyle to which she’d become accustomed. Dr. Goddard recommended and administered PRP injections enriched with stem cells, which alleviated the pain in each of the locales. She can’t help but sing praises for both the treatment and Dr. Goddard’s expertise.

Plantar fasciitis / Knee, hip and back pain
I’m a professional baseball player and played for the Chicago White Sox. During one season, I strained my groin to the point I could not run and it was recommended to have sports hernia surgery. I encountered Dr. Sean Goddard and his prolotherapy treatments. Within a week of the first injection treatment, I was playing again. Not too long after healing my abdominal muscle, I overstretched my shoulder practicing yoga and had no strength. I had a treatment on my shoulder and it is now stronger than ever.

I have known Dr. Sean for several years as my osteopathic doctor for chronic pain in my back, knees, and shoulder. His extensive knowledge of athletes and athletic injuries has allowed him to diagnose the root cause of the pain and design a treatment protocol to address the problem.

Sports Injuries
I injured my shoulder in early 2014 and went to an orthopedic surgeon in Kingsport, TN. I had heard great things about PRP therapy and was curious about the procedure. I couldn’t afford the time off or the medical bills that came with surgery, or the months of physical therapy that accompanied surgery. The surgeon in Kingsport told me he wouldn’t do PRP on me because the tears were too severe. He informed me that I needed surgery because my shoulder wouldn’t last another month. That is when I searched the Internet and found Dr. Kristopher Goddard. I got in contact with him and his office in Knoxville, TN. They are very people oriented and make one feel like they are part of their family.

I am extremely blessed and thankful I found Dr. Goddard and the Osteopathic Center. With the PRP and stem cell therapy, he repaired my rotator cuff and saved me from financial hardship with all the medical bills from the surgery and physical therapy and still not being able to have full use of my shoulder. Because of the PRP and stem cell therapy Dr. Goddard administered, I was able to regain 100% of my shoulder with no limits in range of motion. It’s amazing how much better my shoulder felt after the first shot. I recommend everyone and anyone that has been told they need rotator cuff surgery to see Dr. Goddard first. He has worked a miracle for me.

I went to see Dr. Goddard because I was proactively seeking a natural healing treatment for my moderately arthritic knees. I went in for an initial consultation with Dr. Goddard in 2015, then back for platelet rich plasma (PRP) shots to my left knee in May (I think) of 2016. I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Goddard, his staff, and the results of my PRP shots. During my appointments with Dr. Goddard, he gave me what I thought was a thorough examination, provided insightful feedback based on his examinations, and he took the time to listen to me and answer any questions I had. When he gave me the PRP shots, I thought his method of delivering the shots was well thought out, and that it likely increased the chances that the shots would cause maximum healing in my knee.
The end result has been that the knee that I received the shots in feels great — better than the one that I didn’t receive a PRP treatment on. I’m now planning to get the other knee done. Also, the staff at Dr. Goddard’s Knoxville facility was wonderful. They followed up with me several times after my PRP appointment to make sure I was doing well. They went above and beyond the call of duty!
Overall, I’d give Dr. Goddard and his staff an A+ for their service. I’ve been very pleased.
