Aart van Gorkum recently participated in Sean Campbell and Dr. Majid Alimohammadi’s “Anatomy Discover” series as the clinical expert for the upper limb. He presented on common elbow injuries in the throwing adult and adolescent athlete.

Also in the picture are clinical experts, Diane Lee and Carol Kennedy.

This Anatomy Refresher course for physiotherapists was held in the Anatomy Lab in the Life Sciences Building at UBC and allows participants to brush up on their anatomical knowledge using cadavers and some excellent pro-sections. Physiotherapists came from all corners of the profession: Pediatric, cardio resp, neuro, sports, ortho and IMS practitioners.

A great day it was!

Anatomy Discovery

“I came to Mike after a car accident in December 2013.  I have never had a care provider who has done as much as he has to help me get better and who has focused on the entirety of the situation and how it can affect healing instead of just the immediate problem at hand.  It has been a long road, but he uses a variety of techniques (including large needles which terrify me, but I have to admit work incredibly well) and is always looking beyond just the symptoms for the actual causes.  Since getting pregnant while still rehabilitating, he has been able to provide exercises and ideas to help with the pain that has come from the changes due to pregnancy coupled with the previous problems before.  He’s even managed to find ways to alleviate pain that is considered “normal” and just par for the course.  I simply can’t recommend Mike enough and already have sent anyone who is in need his way.”
