  • “…We had her deadlifting by the end.”

    By in Blog (Public), Testimonials / / 0 comments

    Chiropractic Physician says: “…patient with 3+ years of left high hamstring pain, worse with sitting, lunging and forward flexion. Had 2 rounds of prolo with some dry needling mixed in about 6 months ago which seemed to help some, but now it is back full force. Has gradually removed more and more movements from her workouts, does not run anymore. You know what’s next…DTM with varied positions and movement mixed with some non-compressive isometric loading of the hamstring. No pain with MS flexion and we had her deadlifting by the end.“

  • “Acupuncturist completely blown away…”

    By in Testimonials / / 0 comments

    From a Chiropractic Physician: “Patient presents with pain in the medial aspect of the fourth finger after playing guitar. Pain reported to be exacerbated by finger flexion and extension. DTM to the inter-metacarpal region significantly reduced finger pain with flexion and extension. Mulligan-like mobilization to the 4th DIP reduced the remainder of the finger flexion/extension pain. Pending results with guitar playing…This patient is an Acupuncturist and was completely blown away by how much his pain was reduced with DTM to the inter-metacarpal region.”
