A patient’s testimonial on the benefits of a fascial hydrodissection for pain

“After seeing nearly a dozen other orthopedic physicians for knee, hip, and back pain, Dr. Courseault pinpointed my problems like no one else had. The back pain was not from discs. It was a simple fascia problem for decades. One hydrodissection injection in the office fixed it for good. He also figured out that borderline hypermobility and an MTHFR folate metabolism genetic issue was the reason I got early arthritis in both hips and both knees at an earlier age than anyone else I know. Other doctors just said it was age when I knew something more was going on. He recommended taking a methylated B supplement. No other doctor suggested that or ran extra blood work to find an answer. I have sent him many other patients who say they had not been told of their unique health conditions until they came to FIT. ” Signed, “His favorite patient”


Thank you for your kind words and support of the Fascia Institute and Treatment Center at the Tulane University School of Medicine. Every day we hear similar stories of patients with complicated pain-related issues that are from fascial abnormalities. Many cases of neck and back pain are not from arthritis or bulging discs. Often, pain symptoms are from fascial adhesions that cause entrapments in small sensory nerves, reduce blood flow to muscle tissue, and cause movement restrictions. While physical therapy can help to reduce symptoms from these fascial adhesions, a hydrodissection is the only mechanism that will fix the fascial adhesion. For pain-related disorders, it is important to check for metabolic issues. Specifically, checking for deficiencies in activating folate and B12 is important. In addition, checking vitamin D and vitamin C levels is necessary considering deficiencies in these vitamins can also lead to connective tissue problems. Replacing these important vitamins with supplementation can make a significant difference in injury prevention and healing. We appreciate the feedback we are getting from our patients and strive to keep researching the science of fascia in order to translate it into fascial healing.
