Dr. Paul Handleman graduated from the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1988. His medical career began in family medicine with an emphasis on musculoskeletal problems and osteopathic manipulative treatment. He established a specialized practice in Marin County focused on the treatment of musculoskeletal problems and chronic pain in 1995.
In 2003, Dr. Handleman became interested in the field of Prolotherapy, a treatment that was popularized in the 1950’s by Dr. George Hackett. He traveled to Honduras in 2004 with the Hackett-Hemwall Foundation to participate in a Prolotherapy training and medical mission. He returned on a yearly basis for two weeks of intensive Prolotherapy training and missionary medical work. He subsequently returned for three additional years as a Prolotherapy instructor.
Dr. Handleman is trained in and has been using musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKU/S) diagnostically and musculoskeletal ultrasound guided injections for ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons, and nerves. He has long experience utilizing fluoroscopic guidance for interventional injections. Dr. Handleman has completed extensive training in Regenexx procedures at the Centeno-Schultz Clinic with the founding physicians of Regenxx and additional training at our Oceanside, California center.
From his training in osteopathic medicine, Dr. Handleman has long appreciated the importance of considering every patient as a unique individual. The osteopathic tradition emphasizes a holistic hands-approach to diagnosis and treatment. Understanding the advantage of combining physical treatment methods with advanced tissue regeneration procedures, makes Dr. Paul Handleman a valuable member of the Regenexx and Health Link team.
