Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“In the spring of 2013 I suffered a severe rotator cuff injury while rehearsing for an acrobatics performance. I was unable to hold even something as light as a coffee mug with my arm extended. My estimated chance of recovery after surgery was [predicted to be] 50 percent.

I started PRP with Dr. Ryan Minarik in hopes of increasing my chances of a successful surgery. However, the treatments yielded such dramatic results that now, a year later, I don’t require surgery at all! I can do a 1-arm dead hang and multiple pull-ups easily. I can hold a free-standing handstand for 90 seconds and counting. I can do flips and handsprings without pain or instability. PRP helped me get my life, and career as an acrobat back! I am so very grateful.”

—T.Z., Professional Acrobat

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I have commercially fished for 33 years and have been a competitive power lifter for 25, which has caused severe arthritis in both hips. I’d had prolotherapy done with Dr. Minarik and had geat results. We had both discussed that PRP might be a good way to go for my hips. With the option between replaced hips or PRP, I chose PRP. With just 1 injection on the left side, I’ve had great results and no pain anymore after 6 weeks. Now we are working on the right side. I’m thinking of going back to power lifting.”

Testimonials for Natasha


“The neurosurgeon said I had two weeks before I had to have back surgery to avoid nerve damage. After three treatments, I got up from the table and realized the pain was gone! I actually wept with relief. I’m really glad I came in. The acupuncture has given me the chance to heal without surgery.”

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


Dr Minarik has always been one of my favorite doctors, he’s super knowledgable and truly cares. I’ve seen him for a number of things but recently he’s helped me tremendously by easing my joint pain and increasing stability with prolotherapy and PRP.

Testimonials for Dr. Minarik


“I’m a 66 year old practitioner of Crossfit, a vigorous regiment of weight training, mobility training and gymnastics. I had been involved in the sport when I damaged my shoulder. You identified the issue as a complex combination of bursitis, tendinitis, torn ligaments and a generally unhealthy 66 year old shoulder. You recommended several PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments… My recovery has been more than I had hoped. Within four months I was back to pre-injury levels. At the beginning of 2014 [after PRP treatment] I began training of the Crossfit Open Games. I completed the 5 session competition several weeks ago… The competition included, among other movements, pull-ups, dead lifts, burpees, and thrusters. All of these movements required a strong, active, healthy shoulder.

Thanks for the treatment and the resulting opportunity to become a better Crossfit athlete.”

Testimonials for Natasha


“I have been a physician for 25 years. It is always interesting to see the faces of my patients when I tell them that my health care provider is my acupuncturist. I always tell them that when I am sick the first person I call is Tasha. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of skepticism about the benefits of acupuncture among the medical community and the public. I can attest by personal experience, and that of my patients, that acupuncture is a very effective and valid healing method. Tasha has been my caregiver for the last 6 years, she is not only an excellent acupuncturist she is also a wonderful person. I refer many of my patients to her and all of them share the same opinion. I highly recommend Tasha not only as a patient but also as a physician who has seen the benefit and excellent results that she has achieved with my own patients that I have referred to her.”
