Prolotherapy is beneficial to pets, and pets are beneficial to us!
There are some Veterinary practices that use Prolotherapy on animals for non-surgical ligament reconstruction, similar to human Prolotherapy in rebuilding ligament and tendon damage. Be sure to ask your vet if this is an option for your pet’s needs.
How do our pets better our health? Studies show that owning a pet increases our opportunity to exercise, get outside, and socialize. In doing so, it promotes a decrease in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and triglyceride levels. A pet’s companionship fills the void of loneliness and helps with depression.

What are proteolytic enzymes exactly? Proteolytic enzymes are natural anti-inflammatory supplements that help to modulate pain. They also improve joint health without the serious side effects of prescription non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, like Ibuprofen for example. We have tested, recommend and supply these supplements. Consider having a conversation with me at your next Prolotherapy appointment.
Dr.Tim is now performing Prolozone injections into damaged joints, tendons and muscles.
Prolozone Therapy is a non-surgical ligament reconstruction and injection technique similar to prolotherapy that uses ozone combined with a combination of Procaine(anesthetic). Ozone is electrified oxygen. Typical oxygen we breath has two atoms, with this third atom attached, it becomes the second most powerful sterilizer in the world and can be used to destroy bacteria and viruses. This connective tissue injection therapy of collagen producing substances and ozone gas which can reconstruct damaged or weakened connective tissue in and around joints.
Prolozone Therapy is a safe, effective treatment for herniated disc and has shown a 60-80% success rate.
The conference sought to inform practitioners and students on core prolotherapy, unique integrative pain treatment techniques and held a very popular cadaver lab that educated on all joints in the body. Dr. Speciale was a Clinical Instructor teaching a Spinal Cadaver lab to other physicians. He is pictured here with his wife and Medical Assistant Faith at the conference.
Dr. Tim recently guest lectured at Checkers Athletic Club on the use of Prolotherapy-Regenerative medicine for runners to rebuild joints, ligaments and tendons.
As one of the area’s best running clubs, Checkers Athletic Club is a great place to introduce prolotherapy to both novice and veteran runners who may suffer from a variety of running related ailments but who want to continue running for years to come. Maintenance and regular appointments with Dr. Tim can help create longevity within a running practice.
Checkers Athletic Club hosts social events, sponsors races, team competitions, fun-runs and promotes a positive, healthy physical and mental well-being through the sport of running. They were a wonderful group to partner with for this guest talk. Thank you for having us!
Dr. Tim was a recent guest on WDCX Radio (99.5 FM) with Host Neil Boron where they discussed his new practice in Clarence, the type of ailments he treats and how to live fully, healthy and well. For more information, please visit http://www.wdcxradio.com/ Thank you WDCX for having us!
Thank you all for continuing your care with me. And to those of you who are new, welcome to your road to pain free wellness.
It’s time for me to return to a solo practice in the neighborhood that always felt like home – Williamsville. My new office is actually right across the parking lot from my original office location. 8604 Main St., Suite #4, Williamsville, NY 14221
I am enjoying the process of expanding into this new space as I think about all the patients I can now have better ability to serve. Expect that we will do great things together. I look forward to seeing you.
Dr. Speciale was invited to as a Clinical Instructor at the American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy Regenerative Medicine in San Diego 3/25-4/1/2017.
The Spring 2017 Training Conference was held for the second year in a row at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Resort in Southern California. AOAPRM continues to be the premier training organization for prolotherapy regenerative medicine. They have formally organized a pre-conference beginner’s course with a defined curriculum and an accompanying practical exam to include both anatomical palpation and injection preparation. This course will prepare students and new practitioners to engage in the cadaver and injection workshops of the main conference. Further, they have enlisted a fantastic group of presenters to cover the comprehensive topics involved in prolotherapy regenerative medicine necessary for achieving maximum successful patient outcomes. There was a participatory cadaver lab with prosections for detailed anatomical learning and body sections for dry needle injection practice.
The conference is designed to facilitate a 7:1 student to instructor ratio to ensure effective learning and experience. It was a great experience for Dr. Special and the rekindling of friendships in a relaxing, regenerative atmosphere.
