This man is a miracle worker and his wife, Cynthia, is so kind. I hurt my knee while running last July. I went to an Ortho and was told I had arthritis. My knee didn't hurt prior to the last stride I took on the run, so even though I am almost 60, I didn't think it was arthritis but I did the protocol prescribed anyway. I got the shots, I did physical therapy and it just got worse and more swollen. I was actually thinking I would have to live my life basically as a couch potato or until I got a knee replacement. I eventually stopped the PT and moped around all day. 6 months later I was referred to Dr. Sheaffer. Come to find out my knee was dislocated and on my first appointment, I walked out no pain, no limping...I followed up with a few more visits learning knee strengthening exercises. That was 6 months ago and I thank God and Dr. Sheaffer every day. If you are contemplating any drastic measures to relieve pain, FIRST, give Dr. Sheaffer a try...you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
I had a 100% positive experience with this office. Karl expertly evaluated my knee, pin pointed the problem, did a little manual therapy, and sent me home with four simple, yet very effective exercises for me to do at home. The relief has been immediate. I feel like I have a good knee back! I would highly recommend this team any time.
