and recommended it to me. I just finished my second round of injections in my neck, lower back, hips and both knees. I have experienced lower back/hip pain most of my adult life, endured a knee injury while white river rafting in my 20’s and have had progressively worsening neck pain since a car wreck in my early 30’s. For reference I am 47 yr old female in good health, active life style and a regular yoga practice. My neck pain had progressed to the point that my twice monthly chiropractic visits we’re not giving me any relief. I was experiencing numb burning spots down my right arm. I receive my first injections in January. I was a little tender and stiff for 2-3 days after. By the 3rd day all mild discomfort was gone and I noticed a 75-80% reduction in my neck, back and knee pain! It is now late February, I received my second round of injections into the same areas yesterday. I have experienced similar tenderness immediately following the injections however this time it is going away sooner. I am 1 day post injection and have already noticed a reduction in the discomfort I have lived with for years. Less stiffness in my neck and lower back. I’m excited to see where my healing is a week and month from now! I highly recommend this treatment and Dr Smithers! He Explained everything in detail and made sure I knew what to expect throughout each step during treatment. He was also very conscious of my comfort during and after my treatments. Dr. Smithers has been very caring and compassionate and seems to truly care about his patients recovery.
Thank you Dr Smithers!!

He was not able to get as much relief a he needed so Dr. Daly asked us to see Dr. Smithers – another Dr. in his office.. What a BLESSING!! Dr. Smithers is the best of both worlds Eastern and Western medicine! He suggested something called PROLOZONE therapy... Read more »
I couldn’t be happier with the treatment I received from Dr Smithers. I had been having knee pain for several months, making it difficult to walk for an extended period of time. I finally decided to have Dr Smithers look at it, and he decided to do prolotherapy. After a few treatments, the pain was completely gone. I’m thrilled to have found this clinic! And I highly recommend Dr Smithers!

I had my second appointment with Dr. Alex Smithers today. I was treated for painful arthritic hip, back, and neck. After treatments I felt immediate results.

I am also very thankful to Dr. Alex. I have flown twice from Pa. To see him and will... Read more »

I had Prolozone therapy with Dr Alex Smithers. My knees and thumbs were injected due to meniscus issues in my knees and arthritis in my thumbs. Dr Alex was wonderful. He’s very gentle, kind and patient. I’m a very nervous patient and he took his time with me and did his best to make sure I was comfortable. I’m feeling better and continue to expect more and more improvement. I highly recommend Dr Alex and his staff. They
Dear Dr. Smithers,
I just wanted to thank you for treating my trigeminal neuralgia pain.
In May of 2012 I hit my head on a concrete ledge resulting in severe head trauma with unusual and very painful symptoms that followed—throbbing, knife stabbing, severe tension in and around my head, constant clicking noise, and my soft palate in continual motion. I was first diagnosed with TMJ for which I was given an appliance to align my jaw. Which did not take away the severe pain... Read more »
Dr. Alex Smithers is outstanding…a talented Dr. Who is extremely passionate about healing as well as the skills involved in rejuvenative therapies. I go to him for ozone (prolozone) and dextrose (prolotherapy) injections. Have gone to him already at least 8 times. He uses ultrasound to diagnose and monitor and his injections really work. Best of all he’s a great guy and very easy to chat with.

Alex Smithers is not only smart and so helpful with my husband and his knee problems but he helped me with my stomach issues. I would go to him before I tried any other form of medicine. Thank you Alex!!
