This sums up the course held in Dublin: “I absolutely loved the lower body ART workshop with Shane and Paul! I knew ART was great already and I’ve known for a while that it was something that i wanted to do. But the quality of the instructors and the well structured learning envoronment was a pleasant surprise! I’m already feeling excited about the upper body workshop next year! ART is a must for all bodyworkers or athletic trainers and coaches who want a quick and effective treatment modality that gives quick results! I honestly don’t think there is anything better out there!” Petter Sellberg
“Jeg deltok på mitt første kurs i Active Release Techniques (ART) med Nicolai van der Lagen i Moss i februar.
Det profesjonelle nivået på selve kurset med hensyn til faglig innhold og dyktige instruktører var imponerende.
ART er en meget systematisk måte å behandle bløtvev på, men ikke minst også et enestående verktøy i selve undersøkelsen og diagnostiseringen av mine spillere. En ekstra bonus er at kurset også inneholder spesifikk behandling av nerveentrapments.
Som fysioterapeut innenfor toppfotball, ser jeg nå på ART som et “must” og en missing link innenfor undersøkelse og behandling for alle terapeuter som driver med toppidrett spesielt, da utøvere krever raske resultater.
Den umiddelbare responsen fra spillerne taler for seg selv.
Jeg gleder meg allerede til neste kurs!“

Male patient aged 60 with pain in the left groin and testicle. GP referred the patient after relevant examinations had been carried out to exclude pathology. Patient has complained about intense and almost constant pain for several years. Symptoms get slightly better after 15 to 20 min of exercises. Symptoms get worse and intense as he stands up from a seated position. The longer he sits the more intense the pain during standing up.
“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.

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 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.

New input for our Instructors and Assistants in ART Team Europe. New protocols, alternated approaches and great reviewing for a couple of days.
HQ organize one Instructor meeting a year where important modifications and add on’s are demonstrated and reviewed together. We all want to to our best in what we do. This group of people invest a lot of time and puts a great deal of effort in their practice with their patients, and when teaching at our courses around in Europe. They all deserve credit for their effort in always trying to learn more so they can help their patients and athletes a bit better each time.
Just finished a great course in Moss with colleagues visiting from England, Denmark, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Netherlands and Norway!
Everyone passed their exams and did a great job! Thank you all for coming! We will run 1 Full Body Re-Cert in Europe (Moss) in June 2017.
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 feels that he does not have any force left, its painful almost at all times and he can only abduct the shoulder 20 to 30 degrees and has extreme limited external rotation. 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. We will run our next Upper Extremity course from the 1st to 4th of December 2016, followed by Spine during the spring.
