Migraine Gone After 18 Years!

Migraine gone after 18 years with osteopathic care after all other therapies failed!

Osteopathy does miracles in treating chronic pain. No other profession is as effective in treating chronic pain as osteopathy.

Here is a testimonial from a patient that was treated by manual osteopath Trevor Cragg (a graduate of National Academy of Osteopathy, and current student of the doctor of osteopathy (DO) program of National University of Medical Sciences. Trevor practices in Uxbridge, Ontario at Balanced Body Osteopathy (https://www.facebook.com/BalancedBodyOsteopathy). 

Here is the testimonial:
As a sufferer of severe migraines for over 18 years, I had tried pretty much everything in search of finding pain relief. From traditional medicine to massage, chiropractor, acupuncture, reike, reflexology, diets, homeopathic medicine, and bowen. Over the last few years the migraines had increased in frequency of up to three times per week with a soaring pain scale that left me in bed, feeling debilitated and unable to do anything. I was desperate to find something to relieve this pain. Just before hearing about Trevor, I was sent to another neurologist who, after reading my file, decided I needed to go on anti-seizure medication. This is something I did not want to do and I was feeling hopeless. A co-worker and her husband both recommended I go see Trevor Cragg at Balanced Body Osteopathy. Since osteopathy was something I had never tried before I was ready to give it a shot. Within the first few treatments that I had with Trevor, I felt a substantial amount of change and relief from pain. Over the course of my cranial treatments, Trevor released all of the tension in the back my neck and made gentle corrections to my cranial structure. After each treatment, I noticed major improvements and the overall intensity of my migraines drastically decreased. After 18 years of pain, I am now finally gaining my life back and am on no medication whatsoever. My only regret is that I wish I had gone to see him sooner. Thank you Trevor for caring, explaining and answering all my questions along the way. I highly recommend anyone, who experiences migraines or has had any type of head trauma, to seek cranial treatments from Trevor. It has made a world of difference for me. Thank you Trevor.

NUMSS DO Student Writes to Dr Pourgol


A letter from Michaela Von Pfetten, DOMP:

Dear Dr. Pourgol,

Thank you again, for everything. Your lectures and instructions have been motivating and inspirational. The great atmosphere on campus carried and encouraged me. Everyone is always friendly and humorous, helpful, understanding and kind.

I appreciate your dedication to us, your students, tremendously. Whenever I had questions or concerns, you were available. Your business lectures are invaluable and truly priceless and I have been following them from day one.

I am honoured and happy to continue my studies with the DO program. The students I know who are also taking the DO program have only the best things to say about it. I am excited!

I think it was on the first or second lecture that you encouraged us to make a vision board. I made mine right away and the biggest picture was a print out of you and a former student, holding his diploma. One day, I knew, I was going to replace that picture with one of you and me, and my diploma. Mission accomplished, Sir!

There is a proverb along the lines of "people forget what you said to them but they will never forget how you made them feel" (or similar). With you, dear Dr. Pourgol, I will never forget the things you said, and I will never forget how you made me feel: You made me feel that I can do it! And so I did!

With gratitude and a big smile,

Michaela

First Black Female Osteopath in South Africa

A letter received from one of our students in South Africa: 

Good day Dr. Pourgol

I feel extremely excited to be writing my very first e-mail to you. I am excited because of a myriad of things, first being: I am very much enjoying the dual degree I am currently doing with your university.

If NUMSS did not exist I would not have been able to learn Manual osteopathy in South Africa…………………I have begun implementing some of the Osteo techniques (the ones I feel
comfortable to be practicing) in my treatments and man oh man, my whole treatment has changed for the most better. 


I am not only achieving positive results but I have extremely happy and impressed clientele. Wow, I have no words to describe this humbling phenomena. I have not even completed my degree yet :).
The 3rd excitement is that it seems that I will be the first osteopath of my race in this country, an amazing thing on its own, as South Africa has the history of segregation and female oppression, I am
touched by the thought that when I graduate I will be the first “black” South African and “female” to be practicing in this field in South Africa………………………..I am so grateful for this, and I do see my future gleaming.

Thank you Dr Pourgol, for standing taller when the authorities tried to chop your legs beneath you.
Lots of love and respect.

No freezing sputtering and frustration....some lectures I listen through a wireless headset as I do chores ....the very best..for many years to come...

NUMSS New Alumni Card

The New Alumni Card

We have started a new program of issuing an alumni card for the DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) graduates of National University of Medical Sciences.

The card will be mailed to all NUMSS alumni within the next three months.

As a gesture of thanks towards Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, the first DPT graduate of NUMSS (Spain) in Iran, the first card NUMSS alumni card issued was for this distinguished NUMSS alumnus (and current DO student).

Dr Shokouhi last week performed a miracle in Iran by getting a new scope of practice approved by the Iranian government for the physiotherapy profession. Now physiotherapists are legally permitted to prescribe a limited number of medications, order x-rays, prescribe and dispense orthotics and prosthetics and do acupuncture.

Dr Shokouhi was also the one who recommended NUMSS to offer an alumni card to DPT graduates. He is relentless in helping physiotherapists in Iran since he was elected to represent the profession as a supreme member of the Iran Medical Council.

A Revolution in the Profession of Physiotherapy in Iran

Physiotherapist, Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, DPT, a supreme member of the Medical Council of Iran and the first DPT graduate of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) in Iran was successful in lobbying the Iranian government into accepting a new scope of practice for physiotherapists in Iran, a first in 50 years!

Physiotherapists in Iran are now legally permitted to prescribe a limited number of oral and external medications. They are also permitted now to refer for x-rays and other simple diagnostic imaging.

Dr Shokouhi, who is known as the father of DPT in Iran, has revolutionized the profession of physiotherapy in this country, first by bringing the DPT program in Iran, and now by lobbying the government into redefining the profession of physiotherapy.
We are so proud of our alumni. And we thank Dr Shokouhi for all he does for the profession.

Our university in Iran has over 369 physiotherapists as alumni of our DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) program. We are now the number one provider of DPT education in Europe.

Dr Shokouhi with about 50 other Iranian physiotherapists have also enrolled in the DO (doctor of osteopathy) program of NUMSS (Spain) after graduating from our DPT program.

Dr Shokouhi, all Iranian physiotherapists are grateful for what you have done for them in Iran. Thank you! 
 
 

The Shultz Hour - by Dr Pourgol

369 DPT Students in Iran!

As of today, April 05th, 2017, 369 physiotherapists in Iran have taken the DPT (doctor of Physical Therapy) program offered by our university in Spain.

We have introduced the DPT to Iran and currently are the main provider of DPT education there.

Physiotherapists in Iran are urged to enrol in our DPT program. With increased enrollment comes increased recognition of DPT in Iran.

There are more than 5000 physiotherapists in Iran. We are confident that when the majority of these professionals receive the DPT degree, the Ministry of Health in Iran would accept this degree and finally the profession in Iran would be permitted to use the title of doctor of physical therapy.

Special thanks goes to physiotherapist, Dr Farjoud Shokouhi, PT, MBA, DPT, one of the supreme members of the Medical Council of Iran, who is also our first DPT graduate in Iran. Dr Shokouhi was instrumental in expanding DPT in Iran. Without his support DPT could not have spread to every province of Iran.

Dr Shokouhi forever will be known as the father of DPT in Iran and history will remember him as the physiotherapist who brought DPT to Iran.
