I recently attended your course and you were kind enough to use me as a demonstration according to my symptoms. In Sept of 2013 I injured my wrist as a glass cup shattered cutting my wrist and sending me to the emergency room. I received five stitches and was in a wrist brace for three weeks. Ever since then I have had deep ache pain and compression over incision on R palmar ulnar process. I also found I developed hypermobility in the R wrist causing increased pain with wrist extension. Mr. Hesch manipulated my L wrist which he explained would turn on protective receptors in the R wrist increasing stability. After the treatment I did feel more stability in the R wrist with less discomfort during wrist extension and deep ache pain was no longer present. I also found activities such as holding a glass and typing were no longer bothersome at incision point later that day.
I was a dancer for 16 yrs performing ballet, pointe, hip hop, tap, jazz and modern. I have had R hip pain located over PSIS that radiates to R groin region. I have pain in those areas when sitting or standing for more than 30min and always felt as if I was dragging R LE when walking. I also notice R sternal pain when performing UE activities and would feel a prominent press against my bra on the R. I have also suffered from late day headaches starting at the R mastoid process and shooting into occiput coupled with a long history of jaw tightness. I experienced limited jaw movements from a young age waking up with soreness in jaw and needing to cut food into small pieces due to limited ROM of jaw.
Mr. Hesch diagnosed me using his spring methods and visual observations. Mr. Hesch treated all my symptoms with his techniques using foam rolls, manual over pressure and independent standing positions. I felt immediate relief with decreased jaw pain and neck pain with greater ease with cervical ROM as well. I noticed less pressure in R PSIS location and no longer felt as if I was dragging R LE upon walking. I also no longer had tenderness or protrusion in R sternum.
I was very pleased with the treatment and relief I received. I also appreciated the independence his style of treatment gave me to maintain relief on my own. I felt the Hesch Method was very informative, made sense with previous knowledge I had and demonstrated effectiveness in myself and others that were used as demonstrations during the course. I will be using the Hesch Method to treat my patients as a Physical Therapist Assistant and feel extremely equipped to handle lumbopelvic and sacroiliac dysfunctions due to the experience at his course and with his course workbook.
Thank you again for all your help, time and knowledge. I will be looking forward to another course with you.
