Dr James Stoxen DC Lectured at the 2nd annual Anti-Aging Conference, London 2005, at the Royal College of Physicians in Conjunction with the (BSIM) British Society of Integrated Medicine.
Dr Stoxen was the first and only chiropractor to address an international audience at the Royal College of Physicians.
He addressed the international professionals from around world. The audience included scientists, physicians, gerontologists, health care practitioners, medical center directors, clinic owners, and those knowledgeable and or interested in the field of anti-aging and preventative health care. He spoke on “The Human Spring Approach” to treating chronic arthritis and Pronation Syndrome, nicknamed “Destructive Foot Syndrome”.
His presentation topic fit the theme of the conference, “Anti-Aging From Head To Toe, all the Body’s Systems” perfectly.
After the presentation, Dr Stoxen was available for several hours to meet with numerous medical physicians from around the world whom asked for more information.
Several of the delegates asked for Dr Stoxen to return to London in September for an extensive week of workshops on the treatment techniques he has devised to care for pronation syndrome and other arthritic conditions that he discussed in the 30 minute presentation.
Dr Stoxen, a chiropractor from Chicago is the president of Team Doctors Treatment and Training Center. He uses bio mechanics, a science of combining engineering with biology, to study movement. He has worked with hundreds of national and world champions athletes, looking for risk factors that would lead to injury as well as improving performance.
He has been invited to speak at the recent international aging conference attended by over 4500 medical physicians in Las Vegas. He has revealed ‘The Human Spring treatment’ approach to over 300 physicians at the famous Bumrungrad Hospital in Bangkok Thailand in February 2005 and will speak again to an estimated crowd of over 2000 physicians in Bali, Indonesia in September, 2005.
Pronation Syndrome, is complex and defined differently by different schools of thought but it has been thought of as an excessive “rolling inward” of the heel and subsequent collapse of the arch. This abnormal motion of the lower extremity is causing a destructive path of wear and tear on the of ligaments muscles, tendons and joints of the kinematic chain from toe to head.
This abnormal bio mechanical phenomenon has been linked to numerous arthritic conditions in the scientific literature such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, shin splints, painful calf cramps, knee pain and arthritis, Chondromalacia patella, hip pain and arthritis, back pain and arthritis and chronic fatigue.
Diet and exercise are two of the most powerful and controllable ways to slow, stop or reverse the effects of aging.
however when you exercise with over pronation syndrome, movement may actually accelerate the aging process in the musculoskeletal system.
Anti Aging Approach:
There is a profound paradigm shift going on right now in medicine. It is the adoption of anti-aging methods to make medical practice more effective and pro-active. Anti-aging medicine is based on the early detection, prevention and reversal of age-related disease.
In his address to the medical community at the conference, Dr Stoxen will present ‘The Human Spring Approach.’
He will educate the doctors on the “Human Spring Release Approach”, releasing the arch of the foot by hand and the rest of the lower half of the body.
He will also discuss advancement in training as well as shoe design to stabilize the heel in walking, limiting over pronation. He will also show video of rehabilitation and training techniques for strengthening the ‘arch spring suspension system strength.’
The aim of the conference was to provide an opportunity to update delegates with academic, scientific and clinical knowledge as well as facilitating networking with other members of the medical and scientific community worldwide, while providing continuing medical accreditation.
