The Ongley Institute
The Ongley Institute is Located in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, and is a legally constituted and approved Mexican Company formed by Dr. Milne J. Ongley in 1996. The commitment of the Institute is to the diagnosis and appropriate, non-surgical treatment of painful conditions arising from musculoskeletal structures.
The Ongley Institute is a direct extension of the work of the Father of Orthopaedic Medicine, Dr. James Cyriax. Dr. Milne J. Ongley was Dr. Cyriax’s only resident. From Cyriax’s work, Dr. Milne Ongley was able to build and streamline a diagnostic method without parallel. Cyriax’s contribution was to codify orthopaedic problems. Dr. Milne Ongley returned to New Zealand and developed a treatment method which addresses the patient’s true problem. This technique has been in use for over 55 years with clinical study results published in the prestigious British Journal, The Lancet, in 1987.
The objective of Practitioners of this speciality is to correlate a patient’s description of pain with a precise and accurate diagnosis of its origin. To this end Orthopaedic medical practitioners employ a systematic, manual examination system that tests the function of the individual structure or structures that may be involved. Not only is the malfunctioning structure identified, but also, if necessary, the exact portion of that structure exposed. Precise localisation of the causation allows for accurate administration of a proven treatment technique.
This orderly approach renders the patient free from pain within minutes without resorting to ‘pain relieving medicines’ with their accompanying toxic or dangerous side effects.

Throughout his professional career Dr. Milne Ongley has been devoted to the practice and research of Orthopaedic Medicine. Dr. Ongley’s efforts have all been toward the improvement of techniques and medicines utilised by this speciality.
At that time in medical history when Milne Ongley became an Orthopaedic physician, few indeed were those medical men who limited their practices to Orthopaedic medicine. Furthermore, when compared with today the ‘medical tools’ of those pioneers were small in number. He is recognized as the pre-eminent leader in his field of medicine. He has committed his life’s work toward developing the finest non-surgical orthopedic treatment.
Cyriax once stated – ‘the happiest of men are those who sail their ships upon uncharted oceans’. Dr. Milne Ongley is quite unable to disagree. To eliminate severe musculoskeletal pain from a patient or correct a patient’s incapacitating, painful musculoskeletal mechanical disability, without resorting to the use of narcotics etc. is both gratifying to the patient and indicative of the motives of a true physician.

While completing his residency Dr Gonzalez observed that a new major category in patient management had arisen – ‘ Drug Addiction’. This addiction was not limited to physician prescribed medications but also addiction to illegal drugs. At that time no successful program, particularly for ‘Opiate Addiction ‘ was readily available except in Israel. Dr. Luna Gonzales decided to remedy that hiatus in his medical education.
In 1994 Dr Luna accepted the position of General Manager of The Milne Ongley Institute, which has allowed him to work with Dr Milne in the field of Orthopedic Medicine.
