I met Dr. Ongley seven years
ago. I was 43 years old at the time and I had just moved in
with my new girlfriend in San Diego. Being in the construction
business for over twenty years, I was experiencing severe
elbow pain from all the heavy lifting, hammering, digging,
sawing, etc. My girlfriend told me that she knew a doctor
that could help me get rid of the pain. It was getting bad
and it was starting to affect my work. I was not sure what
to expect, but I agreed to go down to Ensenada with her to
see if there was anything he could do.
At the time I had never heard of an alternative to standard
U.S. style treatments and I expected that not much could be
done without surgery. My girlfriend and her family have been
going to Dr. Ongley for years and the stories that they told
me really seemed too good to be true. My girlfriend told me
that Dr. Ongley had, at one time or another, helped many of
her family members overcome debilitating conditions. At my
first Thanksgiving dinner with her family the talk at the
table centered on Dr. Ongley.
I found out that his treatments were nothing short of miraculous.
For example, my girlfriends’ mom had been rolled over
by a horse and had broken countless bones in her body. The
doctors in the U.S. said that she would never ride a horse
again and that she would need a special shoe on one foot so
she could walk straight. Well, she was riding after just a
few treatments and has never needed a special shoe again.
Being a skeptic by nature, if that was the only story about
Dr. Ongley’s amazing accomplishments I had heard, I
would have just written it off as he got lucky or she would
have gotten well anyway…but over and over again I learned
about people who were referred to Dr. Ongley and he changed
their lives giving them their mobility back and allowing them
to live a healthy pain free life.
And guess what? After two injections my elbow was back to
normal and I was swinging a hammer like a twenty year old
again. Today he is treating my shoulder with the same great
results. From what I have experienced, Dr. Ongley is truly
a gifted physician. Dr. Ongley didn’t just read the
book on alternative medicine, he wrote the book. Every now
and then a rare person will come along and change the world.
Dr. Ongley is truly one of those rare people.

In 1996 my sister told me
that she had spoken to Dr Ongley about the vertigo I had for
20 years. She had been a patient of his for many years and
felt he could help my condition. Dr Ongley told her it was
imperative that I get down to the clinic to see him. Over
the years my body had gotten all twisted. My shirts would
not hang straight and my head was so tilted my vision was
not straight, I was not only spinning anymore, I was also
tumbling. I finally came to the end of my rope in 1998 (I
could no longer drive) and came to my senses… I let
my sister take me to meet Dr Ongley. The first thing he did
was check my reflexes and range of motion, he told me he needed
x-rays before he could do anything. So we went into Ensenada
and got x-rays.
After looking at the x-rays, Dr Ongley and Dr Glenn gave me
an adjustment and when I got off the table I was straight.
I had no muscle soreness of any kind from the adjustment.
I followed the adjustment up with 6 treatments of shots and
to this day, in 2012, I am still straight and have not been
More recently, I broke my ankle and stretched all the soft
tissue and ligament. So I set off to see the best doctor I
know, Dr Ongley. First, the Doctors in the states put me in
a cast (this was a non -weight bearing bone) so I had it removed
the next day thinking, Dr Ongley would not agree with this.
When I arrived he said it was good I had the cast removed.
After some treatments, he has my ankle all tightened up and
I once again am way ahead of schedule in the healing process.
I am so lucky to have the opportunity to be treated by Dr
Ongley and the true amazing friendship that comes with it!
I have and would recommend anyone to go see Dr. Ongley. All
I can say is, though it may be hard to believe what he is
capable of accomplishing with injections, it is true. It will
only take one visit to truly understand how incredible Dr.
Ongley is. I am truly blessed to have Dr Ongley in my life.
Also, I would like to say a thank you to Raquel, Dr Luna,
and Rosalinda for always being there to take such good care
of your patients and friends. Love you all for the great experience
at the Ongley Institute!

Dr. Ongley: How I found you.
I had lumbar problems with my left leg and it was slowly going
numb and I was told if the numbness continued that without
surgery it would have to be amputated it at the knee. So in
1979 I elected to have a laminectomy of my lumbar area, not
wanting to loose my leg. I was a professional bowler on tour
at the time and a family to support. I felt good for a while,
but after a short time I had to drink the bar in order to
compete in my profession which I had to give up. I asked a
friend what do you think I can do now because the pain was
getting worse ? He told me to go see a chiropractor friend
of his named George Tatsuno, which I did. He told me that
I can't help you, but I know someone who can. George Tatsuno
was treated by you when he was competing in the olympic games
as a judo competitor back in the day. I took his advice and
went to see you in my bad condition. I was carried out of
the car by your son Glen and Bob Moccia (which you also treated)
into your clinic.
You asked if I had any x-rays and I said I do. As usual
you looked at them thru the overhead lights and tossed them
over your shoulder and then made me attempt my limitations
of movement. After I did that you would put your boney finger
on my sore area and say it "hurts right there, dosen't
it" and then I would clime the walls in pain, because
you were correct. Then you would proceed with your treatment,
of which I felt so relieved of the pain that I could run out
of your clinic and smile mostly pain free. As per your first
treatment schedule I had to return the next day (which I called
the double wammie) and after that initial first treatment,
I saw you for another six weeks. I referred many patients
to you who were about to have unnessary surgery and with your
help they were able to function without pain.
So my story is: in the mid 80's I was treated by you and
I was able to persue my vocation as a pro bowler on tour without
any more pain. But because of my ineptituteds I retired from
professional bowling in 1982. You treatment allowed me to
function without pain to this day. Thank you again for your
help and support.

I first met Dr. Milne Ongley
in 1981 in San Francisco. I had a “tennis elbow”
in my right arm, not a serious injury but painful and troublesome.
One of Dr. Ongley’s colleagues told me about the amazing
things that he could do. I made an appointment to see Dr.
Ongley, he gave me one injection in my elbow, the pain was
gone within a day and I never had a problem with that elbow
At about this same time, my brother-in-law had problems with
his hip, was in a great deal of pain and scheduled for hip
replacement surgery. Instead he went to see Dr. Ongley, had
injections of Ongley Solution and this solved his problem.
No surgery, just injections, his hip was permanently repaired
and he was pain-free…amazing.
Over the years I’ve referred others to Dr. Ongley and
all have had similar, positive results. Milne Ongley is one
of a kind…witty, compassionate, a pioneer in his field.
He is truly the finest orthopedic physician in the World.
I’m now 65 years old and having problems with my knees.
Two orthopedic surgeons here in Wisconsin have told me that
I need “total knee replacement’. Of course…that’s
what they do! But I know what I need…Ongley Solution.
I’ll be in Ensenada later this year.

I heard about Dr Ongley through
an athlete friend of mine who is also a patient. I was having
upper and lower back pain, and it was a major hindrance in
my training and competitions. I went through a serious of
treatments last year in 2009 and I received pretty immediate
relief and was able to jump in the upcoming meets with significantly
My experience with Dr. Ongley was great. Visits with
the Dr. were always entertaining and hearing some of his stories
with past track and field athletes was a blast.

I heard about Dr Onlgey from
my associate Sven Coomer Via John McBride Bode Miller's old
Coach. I received treatment for my knees 3 years ago. My knees
hurt all the time due to old Soccer injuries in High School.
The clicking (Boston Pops some call it) was very bad but the
pain was the thing I could not stand. It would occur all the
time; while driving, while sitting for long periods, while
skiing and biking, going up stairs, and when ever a storm
was coming. I was taking Motrin every day.
After DR. O's second injection the pain was gone!! My wife
said I was crazy. But it has NOT come back. My knees
are stronger and don't hurt!!! I tell people they are like
new!! DR O is INCREDIBLE (not to mention funny). I recommend
him to EVERYONE who has any sort of joint issues.
I have friends who have nearly died from staff infections
from knee surgery!! Why risk that?? I live in Vail Part-time,
which is the home of the great Dr Steadman, BUT I went to
DR. Ongley and I am sure glad I did.

I met Dr. Ongley
25 years ago when I had done everything possible to treat
a very bad back. His was the only treatment that worked
and in 6 months I was perfect and so was my back. Over
many years he has fixed a broken collarbone; caused a broken
hip and femur to re-grow new bone and completely heal.
I have traveled many places to spend time with this wonderful
man and must say that the bond created is one that cannot
perish with time in eternity. He taught me what it is to be
human; what it is to be alive; what it is to be in service;
and what it is to follow Divine guidance and never give up.
He once said to me if you remember nothing else in your life,
remember this…and I always have these many years.

Dr. Ongley is well-known as
a "career-saver" in the athletic world. I
heard about Dr. Ongley through Mike Tully, who had received
treatments from Dr. Ongley and was a very close friend of
He saved my career twice with my serious back pains/injuries
starting in 2006. I wasn't able to jog or walk without pain
after almost 6 months of several other treatments including
chiropractic care, soft and deep tissue work, physical therapy,
and acupuncture. I even tried a prolotherapist but the
result was not successful. I had to consider something as
invasive to the body as back surgery seriously which, as an
athlete, I did not want to do. It was definitely a crossroads-type
of moment for me in my life.
This is when I went to Dr. Ongley and was excited to meet
him. Dr. Ongley's treatments proved to be miraculous.
It is amazing enough, he can completely fix the problem but
the amount of time it takes is what blows my mind. He
is able to get people back into the groove of their normal
lives within a day or two at a 100%. So, for athletes,
he is a crucial asset because he can have you ready and pain-free
in dire situations in no time at all.
Dr. Ongley is one of the most amazing people I've ever met.
His vast knowledge of the body, treatments, therapy and sports
is unbelievable. But above all, I believe what he does
best is caring. He is motivated and driven to help others
live a much better life. He has given me my dream to
pursue athletics several times now and I owe him so much.
I cannot imagine my life without Dr. Ongley.

When I was only a student,
I read in a national newspaper that Bode Miller (rising star
back then) and our Alpine Skier went to get some therapy in
Mexico. I read that he doesn't operate, but helps with injections,
which helps for ligaments and muscles to get better much faster.
Then in April of 2008 I went to San Diego, CA with an
athletics team for track and field, preparing for the Olympics
in Beijing. Damjan Zlatnar (110 m hurdles, has a Slovenian
record) had a problem with his Achilles tendon. Since we were
so close, I decided to make an appointment. It was then I
finally saw what a real doctor was!! My God! He showed me
how to always look at the patient holistically. For example,
I thought that the only problem Damjan had was his Achilles
tendon, but then after 2 hours he showed me a bunch of problems
with his biomechanics. I was there for 4 therapies. It was
amazing to work for him. We went there again the following
year because I just wanted to see him and say hello, because
he taught me so much. I am sure that he made me a better physiotherapist;
he gave me this different way to look at physiotherapy…it
was very useful. I remember what he said to me once: "once
you learn how to diagnose correctly, things will get even
worse for you," he is always sarcastic of course.
Another athlete Dr Ongley worked with in Slovenia was Sani
Bečirovič. He played basketball in the NBA and is
now playing at home in Slovenia. His knees were so bad that
no team on Slovenia would even consider working with him.
Dr. Ongley brought him back from the “dead players”
grave to a star again.

about your shoulder for a minute and let’s talk about
what is wrong with your back.” Those were the
first words from Dr. Ongley that started me on a short road
to recovery after two decades of back problems.
I first met Dr. Ongley in 1999 when I hurt my shoulder and
in between setting up the appointment and visiting him, I
experienced a spasm in my back. I have had a history
of back issues including two surgeries, one when I was 33
years old and one when I was 37 years old (about a year before
I met Dr. Ongley). As I had aged, my back was getting
worse. I was an old man before my time and I could hardly
ski anymore and I had totally given up playing baseball.
When I first met with Dr. Ongley, he quickly diagnosed me
with Ankylosing Spondylitis and prescribed his treatment.
After the first treatment I was pain free. After the
eight-week program and follow up exercise I again skied as
I did when I was younger and started playing baseball again.
(By the way my shoulder was treated at the same time as my
back with equal success.)
It has been ten years and I still play baseball and ski.
I have seen Dr. Ongley over the years for other injuries and
I am always amazed at how quickly I recover. I have
brought friends and family to him and without exception they
are truly amazed at the results.
Dr. Ongley is truly an amazing doctor and one of the most
interesting people I have ever met. His warmth, eternal
youth, infectious laughter, and his genuine caring, makes
every session with him a memory to cherish. He is what
a doctor should be – a person who heals! I highly
recommend him to anyone with an orthopedic issue.
San Diego, California

Years ago, in the mid 1980’s,
I was at a loss for what to do. I was in my early 30’s
and could barely walk a city block as my entire body had atrophied
down to skin and bones. I was a mess physically and, of course,
psychologically. The loss of being able to do the things I
loved was devastating. Prior to that, I had been a marathon
runner, distance swimmer, loved to hike and mountain climb
(Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya, and Mt. Olympus amongst them),
hiked across Kenya … and so on. I was always physically
active from childhood on. Well, as I said, it all came to
a screeching halt in my early thirties. I began to develop
back, leg, knee, and neck pain.
Over the next two years I was told many things from many
specialists. I had x-rays, cat-scans, bone scans; I was poked
and prodded with the most concretely obvious things being
disc herniations in my low back and neck. I was given
a hard plastic brace (Boston Back Brace) for 3 months; it
ran from the top of my thighs to under my arms. I was supposed
to wear it for 6 months, 18 hours a day, but one day I woke
up and threw the damn thing out. I was unable to bear watching
the even further atrophying of the muscles throughout my back
and buttocks caused by wearing it. Then I was scheduled for
disc surgery in Boston. To make a long story short, I was
perusing a bookstore looking for reading material to take
with me into the hospital when I stumbled upon Ben Benjamin’s
Listen to Your Pain. I called him up, made an appointment
to see him, and there he told me about MJ. I canceled my surgery,
which was to be the next day, called MJ, and he told me to
“get on a plane!” And I did. MJ was practicing
in San Francisco at the time.
Over the next 3-4 years I went back and forth from the east
coast to the west coast. MJ treated my lumbar sacral spine,
my cervical spine, ACLs in both knees, both knee capsules,
shoulder capsules, and various other muscles. It was a long
haul, but MJ’s work gave me the foundation I needed
to begin to move again. I worked hard on rebuilding my body.
It would not have happened without him. These 25 years
since he treated me have been filled with running, swimming,
kayaking -- being in the world in the way I love. I got my
body back and I am forever grateful to him.
I saw him last spring for the first time since then. I had
lost touch with him completely. I’m 56 now, have some
aches and pains, nothing so dramatic as all those years ago—a
bit of tendonitis, some arthritis in my shoulders etc. I found
him on the Internet, flew out to Mexico, and was successfully
treated, of course. All that aside, more than anything, I
am grateful to have had the chance to see him again and thank
him for the gift he gave me all those years ago—a second
shot at living the life I wanted.
MJ was, indeed, the light at the end of a long dark tunnel!
October 30, 2009
I met Dr. Ongley after two
years of being incapacitated with multiple serious spinal
injuries. Numerous Orthopedists, Chiropractors, and Neurologists
had treated me unsuccessfully over a three-year period. All
were good doctors who genuinely tried to help me. But not
only were they unable to help me but it was clear that they
really didn’t have an accurate diagnosis as to
what my problem was!
However, in 1981 a very successful and noteworthy Certified
Athletic Trainer referred me to Dr. Ongley. (The trainer
later became a doctor himself.)
Dr. Ongley cured me of my injuries. I was able to resume
working and to restore my active athletic life. I regained
a high level of conditioning though intensive bicycling and
running as well a weight conditioning. I achieved a sufficient level
of skill in tennis that I became certified
by the United States Tennis Association.
Years later I required surgery on both my knees but the surgery
did not satisfactorily resolve my problems. I then went back
to Dr. Ongley who made my knees well.
Subsequently, I developed a severe arthritis in several joints
and I became afflicted with Ankylosing Spondylitis. There
is no cure for the disease and it increasingly restricts
the range of motion of the afflicted joints. However, for
the past 14 years, Dr. Ongley using his advanced and original
techniques and treatment has dramatically slowed the progression
of the disease. The treatment has allowed me to obtain
the maximum range of motion in my joints, which without, I
would undoubtedly today require, some type of assistance to
just walk. Instead I can walk normally and can still bicycle.
A common theme that I share with the many other patients
I have met in Dr. Ongley’s Clinic over the years is
that they too had a wide variety of injuries and afflictions
for which they had been to many doctors with little or no
success. However, Dr. Ongley was the only one who was able
to heal or dramatically improve their ailments. I’ve
never met a patient of Dr. Ongley’s that he didn’t
dramatically help or cure. And I’ve met quite a few
over the many years I’ve known him.
Finally, in addition to his medical skill and many successes,
I also most importantly found Dr. Ongley over the many years
I’ve known him to be a person of compassion and complete

I heard about Dr. Ongley through
the Internet. Most importantly, I heard about skiers
and other athletes rejecting conventional treatments for much
more advanced treatments with Dr. Ongley. Dr. Ongley’s
treatments work with your body for permanent healing.
You forget you ever had the condition.
I received treatments from him for 1month. And my inflammed
ligaments completely subsided. Dr. Ongley resolved it
Dr. Ongley makes medicine easy. Eveything just seems
so natural to him. Like Mozart with the piano....He
is a genius with the body.

We heard about Dr Ongley through
a friend Dr Ongley had treated in the 80's when he practiced
in New Port Beach. The stories my friend told were hard
to believe and it took him a lot of convincing for me to go
see Dr Ongley the first time, but since then I won't see anyone
else. I started seeing in 1984 and will only use him for orthopedic
US doctors told me I had a blown out my ACL ligament and
I was scheduled for surgery when my friend suggested I see
Dr Ongley first. He diagnosed that I had stretched my
knee ligaments, including the ACL, and that with his injections
they could be repaired without surgery. He has also treated
me for a ruptured sacrum, which was very painful and no one
else could diagnose.
I had lower back pain that was diagnosed as a ruptured disc
by US doctors for years and was diagnosed by Dr Ongley as
lax ligaments, which have not bothered me since his treatments.
He also treated a slight hernia with success. After the treatments,
the ligaments tightened up and I had full recovery and was
able to ski within 6 weeks.
Dr Ongley is one of the most personable, intelligent, and
interesting people I have ever met. He spends a lot
of time getting to know his patients and is never in a hurry
to get you out of his office.

I had low back pain for 22 years and neck pain for about 10
years. As a result of the treatment I received I have been
pain free for the past 29 years.
I have referred hundreds of people to Dr Ongley over the
years who were desperate to be out of pain and he dramatically
altered their lives for the better. The treatment he gave
to these individuals helped the vast majority of them.

I met Dr. Milne Ongley in
December 1999 in his Clinic in Ensenada.
I had prior communications with him regarding the knee patella
tendinitis of one of the athletes I was privately coaching
and mentoring, Erik Schlopy.
After more than a year of examining his treatment details,
studying his publications, getting information about
some of his former patients and talking to one of his
former professional partners [Dr. Thomas Dorman], I
decided to bring to him another American alpine
ski racer whom I was privately coaching at that time
and was " an urgency".
"JJ" Johnson had a pretty severe knee problem [had
a hard time to sit down and get up from a chair!] and two
of the best orthopedic surgeons we consulted came up with
the same recommendation: surgery.
“JJ", who was also suggested to retire from
ski racing by those top doctors, started his treatment with
Dr. Ongley in January 2000. To everyone's surprise,
he was back in competition at the US National Championships
in late March that same year, only 3 months after treatment!!
The same year I convinced Erik Schlopy to go Milne and have
his knee patella "trouble" taken care of because
he could not do any plyometric training, or even play recreational
tennis. After the treatment Erik, one of the oldest US
Ski Team members, was saying " I have now the
youngest knees in the entire US Team" !!
One year later Milne also helped Bryon Friedman, another
US Ski Team member I was privately/part time coaching and
full time mentoring. I also took an old friend of mine to
Milne, a former top US Ski Team member who - now in his
60's - was having knee and back joint problems and he as very
grateful for the referral.
The story with the US Ski Team members successfully treated
by Milne goes on and on...and one can read and listen
to their stories in many other testimonials.
About the treatment:
Having a formal and informal background in sports medicine
I was interested and I took the time to study Milne's
joint therapy procedure and in a succinct description
these are my findings:
- Relatively simple, the procedure has an almost non-invasive
approach: the cocktail fluid injected by Milne
into various joints has the ability to trigger a natural
regeneration of the different collagen fibers of cartilaginous
and ligament tissues that need healing.
- Milne refined the composition of that injectable fluid
along tenths of years.
- Milne's subtle and deep knowledge of the 3D anatomy of
joints, that vary from individual to individual, is bordering
the miraculous...and that's another unique element of his
personal treatment...the ability to "target"
the injections to the right points.
- One of the BIG advantages of this type of treatment that
was pioneered by Milne is the fact that the procedure does
not disturb healthy joint components [for ex. the knee synovial
compartment, etc.], as even the most sophisticated
surgeries always do!!
- Another huge advantage of "Ongley's" therapy
is the fact that it eliminates the "disabling"
100% rest time the surgeries require: in between Ongley's
treatments [5-12 days] the patients are REQUIRED
to exercise. That's a great advantage, so important
that it is even hard to quantify it in terms of positive
evolution along the healing and recovery process.
As with any successful treatment of the human body, Ongley's
therapy does not have a 100% rate of healing, but the
8-9 out of 10 success rate is impressive. The Ongley therapy
procedure has the character known in medicine as "Primum
non Nocere,"… i.e. it does not do worse!!
As every patient of Dr. Ongley finds out sooner rather than
later, Dr. Ongley is a very carry human being, realistic in
his contagious optimism and humor, and our relationship evolved
to a strong friendship along the years. In spite of logistical
challenges, Dr. Ongley remains very interested in both
the medical well being of his patients, as well as in the
human/emotional healing of their injuries. His unusual medical
and human life experiences are the reason behind his unique
relationship with his patients, shaping his treatments...as special life
He treats all his patients with the same subtle focus and
dedication, whether they are common people to tremendous athletes
[World and Olympic Champions, etc], working out of his unassuming
Clinic in Ensenada, Mexico.

A friend of mine Ron VonHagen,
an ex pro volleyball player, told me about Dr Ongley.
I have been receiving treatments from him for about 6
years off and on. I went to him initially because of a shoulder
injury I received from a snow skiing crash. In my first
visit I had immediate relief and it has not hurt since.
I was the one to convince my husband Joey to consent to see
Dr Ongley as he was very skeptical about alternative treatments. He
was convinced and hooked after his first treatment with great
results. I traveled to Ensenada with Joey for one of
his treatments just as a vacation and after he had finished
with Joey, Dr. Ongley asked if I needed anything. I
was amazed that he would not only take the time to see me
without an appointment, but by the way he made his diagnosis simply
by observing body movement - visually rather than using
x-rays, etc. - as is customary in the US. After putting
me through various movements he put his finger firmly on my
shoulder exactly where it was bothering me. I was amazed. He
then proceeded to give me treatment.
Our whole family is so appreciative of Dr. Ongley. We
have taken both of our kids to Dr. Ongley as well. They
are skiers and after my daughter's knee surgery he helped
her heal very quickly by draining a lot of fluid and breaking
up scare tissue. At first she hated it because it was
painful, but she is a firm believer after the initial treatment.
She was just a teen-ager at the time.

I heard about Dr Ongley from
my husband and long time client, Michel Khozam who has know
Dr Ongley for many years and was a patient of his while in
college. I started to see him just this year in February.
My initial complaint was the pain in my knees. They
hurt to do almost everything and were preventing me from playing
my favorite sport, beach volleyball. Because of the treatments,
I’m playing beach volleyball again. I was well
enough to play in 2 AVP qualifiers. (I haven’t
done that since 2005). Not only that, but also all exercise
is doable and pain free.
This procedure was life changing. Not only are Dr.
Ongley and his staff professional, friendly and fun to be
around, but also so are his patients. I can’t
even count how many wonderful people I’ve met as a result
of my visits with Dr. Ongley.

My friends Michel and Barbara
Khozam told me to Dr Ongley in June of this year. They had
both been high-level athletes who suffered injuries that would
normally inhibit, if not, stop participation in sports all
together. While talking about our lives I shared that I had
given up volleyball and was getting ready to pretty much stop
all activity that involved any kind of pounding on my knees
and aggravated my damaged Achilles Tendons. This basically
included everything shy of walking. I was in constant pain
and gaining weight like a fiend…but most off all I
I had been an athlete my entire life; a good portion of
my identity was tied to being this sport person. I played
Division I volleyball and then was fortunate enough to play
professionally in Europe for several years after college and
semi pro here in the US, now the doctors were talking about
knee replacements before I hit 50 after two unsuccessful knee
At this juncture I was willing to try anything because I
truly felt that I had nothing to loose. I went down to Ensenada
in August and after meeting the doc, signed up for not only
my knees but also my entire spine. I know this seems radical
and expensive…but all I know is just by him looking

I sat and walked; he was able to tell me my injury history.
He instinctually knew where to touch and could explain much
of the phenomenon that still remains a mystery today to my
ortho surgeons. Without cutting me open he was able to diagnose
what a total of 6 surgeries could not yield.

pain I am nearly 100% pain free. I am 42 and playing volleyball

I have ever met. His approach to medicine, his authentic love
for what he does and the well being of the patient far surpasses
ANY experience I have ever had in medicine. When you enter

colleagues are equally loving and attentive and thus reflective

after. In my opinion, it is an investment you can not afford
not to make…unless of course you put a limit on what
your health is worth.

of musculoskeletal, sports, and orthopaedic medicine as we
know it. The skilled physicians who were directly trained
by him remember this. Physicians trained by Dr. Ongley have
gone on to make contributions to world knowledge in their
Dr. Ongley's formulated the solution, which bears his name
and developed the injection techniques and methods of its
use. This solution also known as P2G, is now used throughout
the world to alleviate pain, restore strength, function and
stability to injured tissues.
Dr. Ongley has no peer. He was there in the beginning and
continues on, ever evolving, refining and innovating in perpetuity.
His philosophies, teachings, guidance and contributions to
medicine remain unsurpassed.
