Medical Director of Caring Medical:
Dr. Hauser is the Medical Director and co-founder of the physician-run, Prolotherapy and natural medicine clinic, Caring Medical & Rehabilitation Services in Oak Park, Illinois.
Dr. Hauser is well-known for his expertise in the technique of Prolotherapy, a medical procedure that stimulates the body to repair painful areas. Dr. Hauser trained under Dr. Gustav Hemwall, the grandfather of Prolotherapy. Because of his expertise, Caring Medical is a national referral base seeing patients from all over the USA, as well as abroad. Dr. Hauser sees people for Prolotherapy from all over the world, including Australia, England, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, Costa Rica, and Mexico.
Dr. Hauser uses an individualized approach to wellness and treatment of disease, providing his patients the extra touch by upholding the motto “The Care of the Patient begins with Caring.” Dr. Hauser tries to get at the root cause of his patients’ problems, thereby treating the cause, not just the symptoms.
Along with his wife and CEO of Caring Medical, Marion Hauser, MS, RD, they created The Hauser Diet, a testing procedure that determines which of five animal diet types will maximize a person’s energy and ability to heal, along with optimizing weight. This testing procedure, called Diet Typing, is available at the in-house laboratory at Caring Medical. This lab is also used to conveniently service a patient’s other testing needs.
Dr. Hauser and his wife Marion Hauser, MS, RD, are the authors of the national best seller “Prolo Your Pain Away!, Curing Chronic Pain with Prolotherapy” along with a five-book topical mini series of Prolotherapy books, including “Prolotherapy: An Alternative to Knee Surgery.” Dr. Hauser and Marion have also written a 900-page sports book that discusses the use of Prolotherapy for sports injuries, as well as other topics including nutrition, surgery, x-rays, cortisone shots, MRI’s and other aspects of sports medicine. It is one of the most comprehensive books on Sports Medicine available, with over 2,000 references listed. Every athlete and/or trainer should have a copy.
Dr. Hauser is a well-known speaker and lecturer on a variety of topics related to natural medicine. He is one of the authorities on Prolotherapy, and often speaks on this topic to the lay public and medical community as well.
The Ironman triathlon race consists of a 2.4 mile open water swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride, finishing up with a 26.2 mile run. Most athletes train for about a year putting in 2-3 hours of exercise daily. So what compels the athletes to do it? Says Dr. Hauser; “I, like a lot of athletes, came from a non-triathlon background. I loved running, but when a stress fracture of my tibia, didn’t allow running for 3 months, I decided to learn to swim. Eventually my friends also taught me to bike. Well, then I could swim, bike, and run…a triathlete was born.” Read more at www.rosshauser.com.
