If you live in a rural area and have a complex medical problem, you will be taken to a small community hospital run by the town doctor (general practitioner). There are no specialists on staff, because most specialists live in larger cities and work at the larger hospitals. So the community hospital’s general practitioner will contact the appropriate specialist (who may live hundreds of miles away) for assistance with your complex medical problem.
The general practitioner gives the specialist the details of your problem. The specialist then orders the appropriate tests to be run and, upon receipt, interprets the tests, makes the diagnosis and determines your therapy. Your therapy is then administered at the small rural hospital. You (the patient) never see or talk to the specialist who is determining your therapy.
This above example is a common practice in 21st century medicine, in order to provide the necessary medical care when the appropriate specialist is not in the vicinity where the patient is located.
So, to answer the question– How could it be possible for a patient to be tested, diagnosed and treated by a physician who never sees them?
The answer is that, due to modern technology and medical specializations, this is exactly what happens in many cases in many areas of the world today.
It is important to remember that it is not the distance or physical presence of your physician that determines the success of your therapy. What is important is:
1. Running the appropriate tests in order to make an accurate diagnosis. (That is, your physician must find the true cause of your problem).
2. After determining the actual cause, your physician must use an effective therapy to eliminate your problem.
In using Long Distance Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, I follow a similar protocol to many other specialists who test, diagnose and treat their patients via long distance. That is:
I first talk with my patient in an Initial Phone Consultation, in order to determine what might be the cause of their chronic pain problem.
I then guide my patient on how to run specific tests; that in most cases can be done without the assistance of a technician or the presence of a doctor.
The patient emails me the test results.
I put this information through a series of proprietary computer analyses to determine the cause of the chronic pain problem and the course of action to resolve my patient’s constant pain.
The reason why chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers from all over the world are treated successfully by me, via Long Distance Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, is because I:
- Discovered a common cause of musculoskeletal pain – two inherited, abnormal foot structures (the Rothbarts Foot and the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity).
- Invented specific tests and computer analyses that allow me to make the diagnosis of whether the patient has a Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
- Developed an effective therapy which permanently eliminates muscle and joint pain resulting from these foot structures. It is known as Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
- Developed the highly effective Long Distance Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy to help those who can not travel to see me.
