“I had an amazing experience with my treatments here. Prolotherapy and PRP is a tremendous form of treatment to fix and heal a variety of joint problems and I doubt that there’s anybody who does it better than Dr. Michael Cronin and his staff. I’ve always looked forward to going here as I feel very welcomed and I know how effective it is in my healing. I couldn’t be happier!”
“I have seen Dr. Mike to address ear and joint pain using prolotherapy. He was compassionate and supportive with my weight-loss program.”

I am a competitive senior tennis player (nationally ranked for several years) who has suffered from injuries to my lower back, achilles tendon, knee and elbow. Thanks to my prolotherapy treatment mostly PRP) I am still playing competitively at the age of 76.I highly recommend prolotherapy as the best approach (having tried many other approaches which did not work) to any serious senior athlete.” — Mike B.
“Dr. Cronin has treated my hip pain using PRP and in 3 treatments my pain has been reduced by over 50%. He also gives me chiropractic adjustments that keep my cervical and lumbar arthritis at bay, and spinal range of motion at their best. The entire staff is friendly, caring and always helpful. I highly recommend.” — Greg C.
“Dr. Cronin has treated my lower back and left shoulder 5x’s twice with PRP and I now have my legs back and the shoulder is nearly healed. I have had back problems for the past 62 years and have undergone many treatments but this is the first time using PRP and I can say it does work. Thank you, Dr. Cronin!” — Steve S.
