This weekend Principal Osteopath John Rothery at Rothery Health & Sports Injury Clinic will be attending a Functional Muscle Testing course in Derby over the weekend of the 12-13th January 2019 in Derby
This seminar will examine the neurological basis for manual muscle testing and present a screening routine as well as a simple concept for using muscle testing in Osteopaths, Chiropractors & Physiotherapists daily practice. The course will look at a new paradigm for understanding injury, which is rooted in well understood principles and research and which offers a different yet very logical approach.
This concept has been successfully used on athletes from a wide range of sports and performance levels including Leicester Tigers Rugby, England Rugby, Chelsea FC, Derby County FC, GB Basketball and the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Polyclinics. However, this seminar is as relevant for non-sporting patients as your athletes and will be a hugely powerful examination tool regardless of patient base.
The course will be run by Ulrik Sandstrom who graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic in 1991 and has been involved in elite level sports chiropractic for over 20 years. He is in his 9th season as 1st team chiropractor at Leicester Tigers Rugby Club.
He has worked with a large range of elite athletes from UK Athletics, Chelsea FC, England Rugby, GB Basketball, GB Swimming, Derby County, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday FC. He was selected to work at the Polyclinic in Athletes Village during the 2012 London Olympics as well as the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. He has a particular interest in delivering an integrated approach through a tight cross professional collaboration.
He has lectured nationally and internationally to sports medics, physiotherapists and chiropractors including Oxford Universty, St Mary’s University as well as several international conferences. He is Master lecturer for the FICS ICCSP sports programme.
