Case Study: Making the Most of Limited Insurance Covered Visits With a 28 Year-Old Car Accident Patient

Written by Kyle Matsel SFMA

Dr. Kyle Matsel takes us through a case example of a 28-year old mechanic with LBP and radiculopathy following a motor vehicle accident.

As you'll see, the patient had a Dysfunctional Non-painful Multi-Segmental Flexion pattern, and was unable to touch his toes at all. Watch to learn other case findings and how Dr. Matsel developed a succesful treatment plan based on SFMA principals to overcome limited insurance coverage and still achieve a succesful outcome for his patient.
