The Arlen Technique (from the Federation of International Federation for Manual/ Musculoskeletal Medicine)
The Federation of International Federation for Manual/ Musculoskeletal Medicine meeting in October 2019 highlighted the Arlen technique. This Atlas therapy was developed in France and is a method of treating the first cervical vertebrae resulting in central nervous system changes & reportedly improving vertebra basilar artery function.
The instructors of last year’s very well received workshop are offering the workshop again in 2023. Come and learn prolotherapy in Calgary taught by Canadians, with good instructor to participant ratios (1:4).
CAOM is committed to providing comprehensive training in prolotherapy, helping to make this pain treatment more “visible” and available to our patients.
Publications and Studies
Dr. Francois Louw, a physician from the Department of Family Practice at the university of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, advances the body of knowledge in the treatment of temporomandibular dysfunction in his article appearing in the May 2019 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, where he found that using a simple and inexpensive alternative treatment with an intraarticular injection of dextrose reduced pain and increased mobility in this hard-to-treat patient population.
