You can be healthy at any stage of life. No matter your age, you’re too young to feel older and too active to be sidelined by pain. Dr. Shiple’s book, Regenerative Healing for Life, walks you through the healing process from groundbreaking research to life-changing relief for musculoskeletal injuries and health conditions, such as arthritis. You’ll discover several amazing, relatively non-invasive medical treatments to ease everyday aches and pains and overuse conditions, heal from sports injuries and accident, move your body more freely, and most importantly, stay as healthy as possible. The medical success stories in this book speak for themselves.

Sports injuries – Ligament and cartilage tears – Sports hernias – Back Injuries – Arthritis – Foot problems – Temporomandibular joint dysfunction – Sciatic problems – Nerve damage – Headaches or migraines – Chronic back problems … If you have one of these or any other injury or painful condition, you need to know that there are revolutionary new methods to treat your problems that may help you minimize medication, or postpone or entirely avoid surgery.

If you’re ready to learn how to treat injuries correctly so they don’t become chronic or debilitating, you need to start reading this book now. Readers will gain an understanding of the four different methods of Regenerative injection treatment (RIT): ultrasound-guided prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma treatments (PRP), adult autologous stem cell injections (ASCI), and superficial perineal injections (SPI).

You’ll learn: revolutionary new ways to help heal painful sports injuries, alternative treatments for people suffering from arthritis pain, the most effective ways to deal with acute injuries, and how chronic conditions can be treated so they do not lead to chronic pain.


“Through my experience with cancer patients, I have discovered what the authors of Regenerative Healing for Life share: The body has an amazing potential to heal. We physicians need to learn from the experience of successful patients and not be limited by beliefs created by our narrow information and training. Read on and learn from the success of others. Then incorporate these lessons into your practice and life.”

Bernie Siegel, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Faith, Hope & Healing and A Book of Miracles

“Before I met Dr. Shiple, I was ready to give up triathlon racing. With his help and several PRP treatments, not only was I able to compete, but I finished two Ironman races and successfully participated in the 2012 World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.”

David Spartin, Senior Vice Chairman of MBNA and Ironman triathlete

“I recommend this book as an excellent informational guide to the many patients with chronic musculoskeletal and joint problems, as well as to physicians, in considering what is becoming first line therapy in the treatment of chronic pain.”

Jeffrey J. Patterson, D.O., Professor of Family Medicine, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine; President, Hackett-Hemwall Foundation

“Regenerative Healing for Life reveals a biologic treatment revolution here today. The traditional orthopedic paradigm is failing many patients. I urge anyone with an injury to read this book, particularly if you are contemplating orthopedic surgery.”

Christopher J. Centeno, M.D., Co-founder of Regenexx and international expert on regenerative healing

“Fantastic reference into patient experience and easy to understand reasoning behind the power of alternative joint care for people who have failed other methods or are told they may need joint surgery in the future.”

Richard Striano, D.C., RMSK Director, Ramapo Joint and Spine


Brian J. Shiple, D.O., is a recognized leader in the fields of interventional and integrative orthopedic medicine, regenerative injection treatment (RIT), sports medicine, and diagnostic ultrasound. He has been in private practice for the last 6 years after completing 13 years as the division chief of Sports Medicine and director of the Sports Medicine Fellowship Program at one of the major health care systems in the Philadelphia area. He is involved in clinical research and is an active member of various national sports medicine and orthopedic organizations. He teaches nationally and internationally. In the past 15 years he has spoken at over 100 conferences and taught RIT to more than 1,000 doctors from 18 countries.

Dr. Shiple has authored articles and research projects. He has appeared on ESPN and is featured in a PBS show. He was recognized as one of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Top Docs.” Dr. Shiple went on medical service trips to Honduras for 7 years, treating underserved people there with prolotherapy while teaching the technique to other doctors from around the world. After being involved in a motor vehicle accident that exacerbated old injuries from playing high school football, Dr. Shiple’s chronic injuries almost forced him to leave work and go on disability. His search for effective treatments to help himself ended when he learned about RIT, which saved his career. It has since aided many thousands of his patients.

He holds a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine and a bachelor’s degree in biology from Western Connecticut State University. In addition to having directed the Sports Medicine Fellowship Program at Crozer Keystone, he has taught at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and has held an academic appointment at Temple University School of Medicine. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Association, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, the International Cellular Medicine Society, the American Association of Orthopaedic Medicine, and the International Spine Intervention Society.

He is married and the father of 3 daughters. Recreationally, he is an avid cyclist and also enjoys golf, snow skiing, and scuba diving.


Marlise Wabun Wind, M.S., is the author of ten other non-fiction books, with over two million copies in print worldwide in many languages. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University and a bachelor’s degree in international communications from George Washington University. She is a lifelong student of cross-cultural healing, complementary and holistic medicine, and wellness. One of her books is about integrative healing, and several others are about cross-cultural healing techniques, comparative philosophies, religions and spirituality. Ms. Wind was searching for an alternative to the surgical treatments for an arthritic ankle when she was referred to Dr. Shiple, and it was through him that she learned about RIT.

Ms. Wind resides in the Greater Philadelphia area with her husband. Thomas Wind, D.O. is a child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist who practices therapy, is knowledgeable about a wide range of integrative medicine and cares deeply about his patients. He was always available to explain medical concepts and terms while Marlise was working on this book. Managing Thomas’s practice and understanding his schedule was a great help in working with Dr. Shiple, since both men are exceptionally busy, compassionate physicians.

Marlise and Thomas are the parents of Kyla, a talented, hard-working artist and a superb communicator, teacher, and nurturer, who cares deeply about animals. She received a B.A. from Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and completed post-baccalaureate work in studio art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Marlise Wind is currently working on several other projects, including a novel and a spiritual adventure memoir, as well as four other non-fiction titles concerning ceremony and celebrations, relationships, parenting healthy children, and what she is calling “mother sense.” Because of her own knowledge of the physical limitations of arthritis and pain, she is an informal medical advocate for friends who need such support. She has lectured widely about all of the aforementioned topics and is available for speaking and workshops.
