Why Choose the Institute for Non-Surgical Orthopedics
for Regenerative / Orthobiologic Medicine?
- World-Class Diagnostic Ultrasound
- Ultrasound or Fluoroscopic guided injection to the area of concern
- Holistic Treatments Proven to Speed Up Healing
Prolotherapy is an injectable treatment that can be used to relieve pain in any joint, and it actually “tricks” the body into focusing its natural healing ability on the affected area. It involves injecting a mixture of lidocaine and dextrose (sugar). Lidocaine numbs the area, and the dextrose irritates the surrounding tissues without actually harming them. This triggers an inflammatory response that kickstarts the healing process.
Prolozone (tm)therapy is a form of non-surgical ligament, tendon and joint reconstruction pioneered by Dr. Frank Shallenberger. Prolozone(tm) therapy is derived from the Latin word “proli” which means to proliferate, regenerate and rebuild. Unlike steroid injections which have many side effects and do not initiate any healing response in tissues Prolozone (tm) promotes healing of damaged tendons , ligaments and joints. This treatment uses ozone to stimulate growth factors, improve oxygen utilization, increase blood supply and the flow of healing nutrients to area of pain. More importantly it stimulates the deposition activity of fibroblasts and chondroblasts. These cells synthesize the collagen and cartilage that the body uses to repair damaged tendons ligaments and joints. This increase in cellular repair activity strengthens the injured tissues thereby stabilizing the area and resolving cause of pain. Our doctors at INSO utilize this innovative treatment to help decrease pain and heal injuries. These procedures are all performed under ultrasound guidance for accuracy and to avoid neurovascular structures.

Autografts – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
An autograft is a type of treatment that uses tissues taken from a patient’s own body. In the case of PRP, we take a sample of blood and place it in a centrifuge. This separates the different components of the blood, and we harvest the frothy platelet layer of plasma (PRP), which in addition to containing platelets, also has an extremely high concentration of proteins and growth factors that can speed up healing. It can be injected into various areas of the body, where it will stimulate the healing process, reduce pain, and shorten someone’s overall recovery time.Learn More
Allograft – Amniotic Growth Factors
An allograft uses donated tissue harvested from one person’s body to treat another. To utilize amniotic growth factors, cells derived from amniotic fluid are injected into an injured area of the body. These cells enable the body to zero-in its restorative capabilities where they have been applied. This can lead to the creation of new, healthy cells in the area, leading to complete tissue repair, which results in lasting pain relief and fully restored function.Learn More
Ozone is a gas whose molecules each contain three oxygen atoms. When ozone is applied to human tissues, its atoms break apart and instigate a healing response in the human body. Ozone therapy has been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation, relieving pain from autoimmune disorders, encouraging healing after injury, and killing harmful pathogens. This treatment is an extremely low-risk, non-invasive way to support your musculoskeletal wellness and get you on the road to feeling and functioning your best.
