Hello, I’m Professor/Dr. Brian A. Rothbart and I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I’ve spent the past 40 years of my life as both a researcher and doctor exploring new ways of helping people suffering from chronic muscle and joint pain. My goal, always, has been to help people suffering from chronic pain to get their life back.
I went into medicine because of my father. He was a pediatrician and very committed to his patients. He taught me, by example, that a good doctor treated each of his patients the way he treated members of his own family—with both care and consideration.
I started my medical career as a foot and ankle surgeon, and like my father, I worked hard to deliver the very best level of care to my patients. But it wasn’t long before I became disillusioned with surgery. I felt that too many patients, both my own and those of other surgeons, were soon back in the doctor’s office with the same problems, sometimes in more pain than before undergoing surgery.
I felt frustrated and perplexed. I was a skilled surgeon, constantly updating my education and surgical techniques, but despite this, many of my patients weren’t getting better.
My surgical colleagues told me that this was to my advantage. They referred to it as ‘turning lemons into lemonade’. In other words, they regarded the opportunity to re-do the surgery as an opportunity to make more money. This didn’t sit well with me. I couldn’t sleep at night, knowing that this was not the kind of doctor my father raised me to be.
I decided that there had to be a better way to treat my patient’s pain and actually help them to get better.
My determination to find that better way leads me into research… And in the midst of that work, my life changed in a very important way. In 1991, I was in an auto accident that left me with agonizing, unrelenting pain.
I went from doctor to doctor, from therapy to therapy, but nothing helped.
I was now a chronic pain patient myself. Now I understood, from my own daily experience, exactly how my patients felt and how they suffered. I was no longer just determined to find a better way to treat chronic pain. I was now committed, mind, body and soul to find the means of helping myself and others.
From that experience came a new way of thinking about pain. And with that, I made an important discovery. I proved that chronic pain, not only in the feet, but also throughout the entire body, can actually come from two inherited, abnormal foot structures.
From seeing thousands of patients all over the world in my clinic, I have found that about 80% of the world population has one of these two abnormal foot structures.
I developed a therapy, called Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, which addresses and effectively treats chronic muscle and joint pain originating from these common foot structures.
I have had such great success in treating chronic pain patients for who all else has failed, that my discoveries and therapy are now known throughout the medical world.
And I have finally been able to fulfill my deep desire to actually heal people suffering from chronic pain, rather than just treat them.
Let me repeat that, because it’s so important. My therapy does not manage chronic pain symptoms. It totally eliminates them. Because when you heal the source of the pain, pain goes away.
Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy is not chronic pain help. It is chronic pain elimination.
Thanks to advancements in digital software and communications, I, like many specialists, can now diagnose and treat patients all around the world. This means that if you have one of the two abnormal foot structures I work with, I can help you, no matter where you live.
You may have tried everything. You may have been told that there is no answer to resolving your pain, that there is no help. This is simply not true.
I can help.
Treating those who have already tried everything is my ‘specialty’. If you have one of the two foot structures that I work with,either the Rothbarts Foot or the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, I can permanently eliminate your chronic muscle and joint pain and help you to get your life back, once and for all.
