    “…We had her deadlifting by the end.”

    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.“

    “31 y.o. power lifter/bodybuilder with c/o mid thoracic, periscapular, upper trap and cervical pain. SFMA top tier and C-sp & MSE (DP/DN) b/o points to mobility issues in the C-T spine. Soft tissue mobs and active t-sp mobility exercise were helpful and revealing to the client but residual pain persisted. …Performed some fairly aggressive DTM with cups … followed by active arm/head movement with the cups attached. It took several rounds, but his pain progressively diminished to near zero. What the heck is going on here?? “

    “I’ll be honest…I was a bit skeptical”

    “Patient went from a 6/10 to 1/10. Taught him how to do the procedure at home… Have been doing multiple other soft tissue modalities, and therapeutic exercise with him, which has helped, but hasn’t given instant results like YAP provided.”-Alexander Sundin-Chiropractic Student
