Over the past few months the vital need to show good clinical outcomes has become more important than ever to lift people up .
“We first met Ivan at the end of 2014 . He presented with a number of chronic trauma pathologies which had occurred in 2003″
He lives quite a distance away, he had continued to work and sail with his injuries, unable to come for regular treatment having quite a few other commitments, but when he did manage to get a clear week, so he could come for treatment, we made the most of it and it truly has been paying off, yes it has been a slow and steady journey.
He presented initially with chronic hip ,lower back pathologies, his foot was rotated out of line and his right leg artificially shortened so it was not much more than a crutch, a number of muscles had atrophied greatly (wasted nearly away ) in his Gluteal and Lateral Rotator’s muscles his Gluteus Maximus had atrophied so much, to the point that his hip bone was very evident and in truth he had no buttock on his right hand side, Deeper lateral Rotators had practically seized and were atrophied, Spinal Rotator muscles and their ability to function correctly were very inhibited, with no functional lateral Rotator, his ability to walk (gait) was excessively limited .
His upper torso had pulled over to the right hand side to about 75 degrees, quality of life was very limited .
This man loved and still loves sailing and yacht racing on an international level, to which he has a great deal of knowledge and also about boat building his other passion.
Ivan had received numerous other interventions prior to attending our clinic with no positive constructiveness in their outcomes
Working very hard on these muscle and nerve pathologies, with the use of a Neuromuscular Activation system, sending frequency deep into the body to activate nerve messengers, Motor Neurons and Neuropeptides, has aided greatly to enhance my ability to target strategic nerves to help restore semi morbid fascia, therefore helping to achieve a very positive clinical outcome, allowing activation of the deep nerve pathways, therefore allowing much greater muscle function ability, this is not something that could be achieved with manual therapy alone.
Ivan had a solid determination to achieve, so that when we were not able to have treatment sessions, he kept up with the exercise plan, that between us we had decided was the best way for him to go.
Along with Ivan’s Physiological factors that have improved greatly and he is able to achieve a great deal more and will continue to do so. Psychologically, Ivan feels more confident and assured in his ability to move forward with his life.
Please see the video , yes we know Ivan is still using sticks, but in most circumstances he is down to one stick.
He can stand up straight without dragging his right leg behind him , his posture has improved greatly, we have activated very deep muscle groups in his body, to achieve this clinical outcome so far.
“We know there is more work to be done and will continue to work hard to improved the clinical outcome.”
