Dr. Harry Adelson

Dr. Adelson began his training in regenerative injection therapy (prolotherapy) in 1998 while in his final year at The National College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregeon.

During his residency program at the Yale/Griffin Hospital in Derby, Connecticut, he volunteered after hours in a large homeless shelter in Bridgeport, Connecticut, providing regenerative injection therapies to the medically underserved while gaining valuable experience.

He opened Docere Clinics in Salt Lake City in 2002 and from day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapies for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. In 2006 he incorporated platelet rich plasma and ultrasound-guided injection into his armamentarium, in 2010, bone marrow aspirate concentrate and adipose-derived stem cellls, and in 2013, fluoroscopic-guided injection (motion X-ray).

Dr. Adelson has performed over 3,000 bone marrow and adipose-derived adult stem cell procedures, placing him among those most experienced in the world with use of autologous stem cells for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. He practices in Park City, Utah.

Using the Pareto Principle for consistently excellent outcomes in the treatment of pain.

Harry Adelson, N.D.

The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule, the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. Dr. Adelson will offer insights after 15 years of practice in the field of regenerative injection therapy for the treatment of pain as to how to demystify the pain generator. Diagnostic imaging often serves only as a distractor; as asymptomatic patients frequently display abnormal findings. This talk will condense 15 years of private practice into one hour, and offer treatment algorithms for shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, hip, knee, ankle/foot, and cervical/thoracic/lumbosacral spine. In the words of Albert Einstein, “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex… It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.”
