Course Description

As a sports chiropractor of nearly 3 decades and still involved at the highest level, Ulrik will present a 2 day course on the tools that he has found the most useful throughout his career. With a basis in manual muscle testing, he is used to demonstrating both to himself and his athletes the immediate changes in strength, ROM and pain with manual treatments. This focuses on performance and control and has been his most useful way of showing the value of manual treatment to his colleagues in the sports medical teams.

The testing is not Applied Kinesiology but has a focus on neurological control of muscle recruitment. It gives a great way of uncovering hidden overload issues in our patients and gives emphasises the notion that uninjured doesn’t mean optimum performance.

If you’re a chiropractor in sports or interested in adding some very useful skills to your toolbox, then this course will leave you with a new insight into your Monday morning patients. And not just your athletes!

After this seminar you’ll be able to:

  • Immediately show the effect of your treatment
  • Hugely increase patient compliance by showing immediate functional change
  • Get clues to help you find those difficult underlying problems – not just treat compensations
  • Screen asymptomatic patients and athletes and show them why they are seeing you for preventative care
  • Help in preventing injury and optimise sporting performance
  • Presenting a model of patient management focused on maintaining your patient’s adaptive range and patient led outcome goals
