At the Institute, we offer a comprehensive integrative approach to treating musculoskeletal injuries (acute/chronic) or pain for athletes and non-athletes. We have treated numerous Philadelphia Eagles football players as well as other pro athletes such as the Philadelphia Flyers. We are often called to treat the players especially when there is a soft tissue problem that will not heal properly or when they want a quicker recovery. We have rapidly rehabilitated players who thought they were out for the season. We have also successfully treated numerous middle aged or even elderly former athletes who had lost the ability to play their favorite sport and returned them to full physical activity.
We believe we have one of the world’s best results in musculoskeletal soft-tissue rehabilitation.

Here are some of the many sports related problems for which we have a high success rate:

  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylitis)
  • IT band pain
  • Hamstring pulls
  • Hip pain, weakness, “hip pointers”
  • Joint arthritis pains
  • Knee pain
  • Jumper’s knees chondromalacia patella
  • Ligamentous injuries

  • Any unusual musculoskeletal pains


Our approach is unique in that we use the latest techniques synthesized from many years of experience using a combination of a wide variety of techniques from Germany, Eastern Europe, Asia, as well as the U.S. and Canada.

We use any combination of the following non-surgical therapies:

Acupuncture, Laser acupuncture, Prolotherapy, Prolozone, Neural therapy, Trigger point therapy, Autonomic response testing, Apitherapy (bee venom), nutritional therapies, detoxification therapies, Osteopathic manipulation, massage therapies.

(We have elected not to offer “PRP”- platelet enriched plasma. This technique is easy to learn but we believe the cost to the patient do not warrant the expense. We would have included it in our services if we thought it added any value. We believe our procedure to be superior to PRP injections.)

We use a hands on diagnostic technique that is unique and comprehensive. We have successfully diagnosed and treated many patients who have failed some of the most renowned orthopedic sports medicine centers.

Many patients have pleasantly been surprised at the rapidity of their improvement even when they have had a problem for many years.
