From a Chiropractor in France/Germany

joanchiroart

“ART est la technique de tissu mou la plus complète et efficace que j’ai eu l’occasion d’apprendre. Je l’utilise quotidiennement, au cabinet comme en compétition. Le niveau technique et la précision acquise lors des séminaires m’ont fait travailler avec de nombreux champions du monde et permis d’intégrer des équipes de très haut niveau. Je recommande les séminaires à tout thérapeute qui a envie de se perfectionner, et ce, pas seulement dans le monde du sport.”

Joan MONTSERRAT, Chiropracteur, Spécialiste Sport & Artistique.

ART Spine Leicester Tigers 2016

group picture leicesterParticipants from UK, Australia, Dubai, Norway, Germany, US and Scotland.

A fabulous course at a great venue with excellent service and back up of stadium staff.

The group of participants did a great job during the whole course. Many dedicated and skilled practitioners trained together to become more confident in treating and managing soft tissue conditions. Courses are intensive and do require a lot from the participants. Most did pass the exam, some will do a re-examination in a short while.

Male golfer was told he had «Tennis elbow» and tendinitis by his GP.

Male golfer aged 44 was told he had «Tennis elbow» and tendinitis by his GP. He was given NSAIDs. His symptoms were intense pain on the lateral side of the right elbow with some radiation distally on the extensor side of the forearm and superiorly along the lateral aspect of the arm. Pain starts as he starts to grasp, and gets worse after activity. Symptoms might be milder during the activity itself. He was a bit surprised with the definition of the problem. He has played golf for almost 30 years and he has previously had the same problem at more occasions. He knew that the tendinitis diagnose was wrong and he took contact with our clinic. He never started on the NSAID’s.

Impingement syndrome shoulder

Impingement syndrome shoulder

Male patient aged 44 referred by the GP with impingement diagnosis of the left shoulder.  He had already tried physiotherapy and rehabilitation, this without positive results. He is now up for surgery (MRI showed bursitis and changes of the supraspinatus tendon). The patient works as a carpenter, which has been difficult the last year.

He experiences sharp local pain by the acromion and some more diffuse pain on the posterior and lateral side of the upper humerus. Difficult to sleep due to pain. Classic impingement syndrome.

We have now started up with our post educational soft tissue course program in Paris, France. What a great success it was. French Chiropractors and students from various locations in France attended the course.  A special thanks to Joan Montserrat for helping out organizing everything.

Clinicians in France will now be able to follow our modules twice a year. Next course on the program for Paris is another Upper Extremity. This is due to our waiting list for this course module.

Football player with edema in the left knee

Football player aged 27 with edema problems in the left knee. He plays at high level club. Huge problem for the club as the player is very important for the team’s defense. After playing 30 to 40 min. his knee get swollen, very badly. He has to stop playing because of the intense pain followed by the pressure in the knee. Problem has been present for more than one year.
