If you want a good doc in your area who does solid structural work, here is the info:
Dr. Peter Kewin
1449 Kostis Ave.
There are also docs in Brantford, St. Catherines, and Toronto, if those areas are closer to you. Let me know if you are interested.

Will look into it if this fails. I've seen alot of doctors and that is still a far drive from where I live.
Thanks for the help. It is much appreciated it.
I went to the Fowler Clinic located at the Fanshawe college and the Physiotherapist there did extensive testing on my posture, motor mechanics and strength. He told me the muscles were not firing at once and this way causing the impingement do to the weakened muscle.

Dr. Stu, I completely respect your research here. I did some research on this a while back and found Pete Egoscue who developed a method to chronic pain and saved Jack Nicklaus's from a career ending back injury. He has a book called Pain Free and an extremely popular practice out of San Diego. He uses exercises to make adjustments and fix these chronic pain issues. He is well known in the sports world and Kurt Hester who was my trainer and is currently the trainer for celebrity athletes like Payton Manning and Tim Tebow swears by him. I thought you may be interested in his approach even though it is opposite to your beliefs on this issue. Here are his sites.
I am not arguing your point. I am reading the website you link here. I just wanted to put this out there.

Dr. Stu I found a very interesting article on the ABC approach. It was developed Jesse J. Jutkowitz, D.C., a Chiropractor who's licenses was revoke several times because of some very odd (so odd you need to read the part in the article below where is says Disciplinary History) treatment he performed on some of his patience. The article goes on to say:
“The conditions that ABC is claimed to relieve or cure include amyotropic lateral sclerosis, asthma, cerebral palsies, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical myelopathies, deafness, elbow problems, fibromyalgia, heart disease, knee problems, low back pain, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, neck pain, post-traumatic myelopathies, rhizopathies, trigeminal neuralgias, and urinary incontinence [2-3]. However, no research has validated these claims, and published research shows that the sitting x-ray views upon which his system is based are unreliable [5-8]. The meningeal release procedures do not make biomechanical sense because they are performed with the patient seated upright or with the patient’s chest in extension, positions that relax the spinal cord. These procedures appear to be mere lateral flexion manipulations of upper cervical spine. There is no long-term evidence that the treatment can improve posture. Because of this, repeat treatments to accomplish what he calls “unwinding” of the spinal cord are unwarranted.”
Have you ever come across any of this information in your research of Advanced Biostructural Correction?

Dr. Stu, wow you need to read this forum where Jesse J. Jutkowitz, D.C. and the D.C who wrote the article are going at it!

I am very familiar with this ongoing battle! I will tell you that you shouldn’t put too much credence into these sites – there is quite a bit of misinformation out there and it is the reason I typically do not advertise that I utilize a “named” technique. Dr. Jutkowitz hasn’t done a very good job of policing his stuff and cleaning it up.
I can tell you this; everything Dr. Jutkowitz states regarding ABC is accurate and factual. His loss of license is true but the reasons are not. His religious beliefs aside (which I believe should be left personal and have nothing to do with his methods), he knows what he is doing when it comes to correcting structure.
As is usually the case, people tend to mock and bash the things that fly in the face of conventional thought. The bottom line is the information is solid (made more sense to me than anything I had previously investigated and have since investigated), and after many years of clinical observation, I can honestly say the treatment method works consistently to normalize posture, restore abnormal function, and eliminate pain.
I will be more than happy to describe how the process works – the discussion is somewhat lengthy and technical for the average joe. Perhaps I should send it to your personal e-mail…
This topic is very interesting and above all is a very important subject for all aspiring pitchers and their parents to need to be totally aware of.
Going through this topic immediately took me back in age a spell to those very young youngsters who are not yet, say 15yrs old and have not yet passed the age of puberty.
These youngsters are in a very complex growth situation due to fact that when during sudden quick short time growth spurts the bone structure many times does not materialize with the body growth and therefore their bone structure becomes very unstable, not to mention the physical and mental pain that is endured if they are athletes or are very active otherwise. then there is the matter of their still developing growth plates etc. this is just a part of the body parts and growth movements that need to be watched very closely during this growth period. There are several ex pitchers who have had two surgeries , never learned a thing from the cause of them and are attempting to teach young aspiring pitchers, what are they going to attempt to teach their students? how to work towards surgery like themselves?
