MLT Revolution

In the midst of the opioid prescribing and overdose epidemic in pain care these last few years and the implementation of the CDC's ruling to provide recommendations on the primary physican's role in providing opioid related analgesics remains a hot topic. The CDC Guidelines are not laws. The Surgeon General's letter to 1000's of healthcare providers to take a pledge to minimize and avoid opioid prescribing only added fuel to the wild fire of chaos. The management of pain and the access to proper and timely care has faltered us becoming a pandemic and patients are left suffering to struggle through physical pain and suicidal ideations from untreated, unaddressed or under-treated chronic and intractable pain care. These are not unintended consequences but rather direct consequences via the intent to choose loss of life in overdose above those living. It was easier to blame physicians for prescribing than it was for anyone to accept personal responsibility over their own actions or be a primary role in their own health and well being.

You can considerably reduce or eliminate pain, increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, restore healthy cell production, stimulate muscles, replenish deteriorated joints and bones, promote healing and rejuvinate physical and mental energy without medications in 5 days utilizing Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) by Arik Gohl of the Gohl Program.

Please let me introduce you to a new non-invasive therapy created by Arik Gohl. Manual Ligament Therapy is also known as MLT and is used in the treatment of chronic pain conditions such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). It’s beneficial to people with spinal disorders, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, neuropathy and nerve related pain processes and where other treatments have failed to offer relief.

According to the National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health, the 2012 NHIS showed that yoga, chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation, meditation, and massage therapy are among the most popular mind and body practices used by adults. Other mind and body practices include acupuncture, relaxation techniques (such as breathing exercises, guided imagery, and progressive muscle relaxation), tai chi, qi gong, healing touch, hypnotherapy, and movement therapies (such as Feldenkrais method, Alexander technique, Pilates, Rolfing Structural Integration, and Trager psychophysical integration).

NIH, National Center for Complimentary and Integrative Health -
Presently Mr. Gohl is a Neuromuscular Therapist, Manual Ligament Therapist, and Professional Researcher and Educator. He is an owner, operator and director of the BalanZen Physical Therapy Clinic in Zapopan, Jalisco Mexico. He discovered and developed a new modality named Manual Ligament Therapy (MLT) and has been endorsed by the director of University of Colorado’s Musculoskeletal Disorder Research Lab, Dr. Moshe Solomonow PhD.

Manual Ligament Therapy addresses ligamentous dysfunction in order to treat advanced musculoskeletal pathologies. Mr. Gohl teaches extensive development protocols for, and instructs advanced manual therapy techniques at colleges, universities, and clinics in the United States and Mexico.He facilitates lectures on MLT and ligament neurology for Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Medical Doctors, Athletic Trainers, and Massage Therapists. He treats professional athletes including elite-level triathletes, NFL players, rugby players, soccer players, professional golfers, collegiate and Olympic Swimmers/Divers, and mixed martial artists.

In addition, Mr. Arik Gohl has over 30,000 hours of hands-on clinical treatment applications in advanced neurological disorders such as CRPS/RSD, Acute and chronic orthopedic injury assessment and treatment, Active Isolated Stretching and Strengthening (AISS), Post-operative rehabilitation such as mobility and strength restoration, Extremity conditions such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Carpel Tunnel/Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Headache and cervical/TMJD pain resolution, Advanced Exercise and conditioning and Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar strain/sprain resolution. His current career oriented focus is in treating those with advanced chronic pain diseases, disorders and syndromes.

As a recent of patient of Mr. Gohl and after 16 years of CRPS type 2, spinal deterioration, other pain related syndromes and symptoms I was able again after the 5 day Gohl Program retreat be able to move areas of my body, I hadn’t used in years as a result of both chronic pain, flareups and disuse. Overall body pain was reduced drastically and I’m able to finally begin to re strengthen me again.

Please consider sharing with your colleagues so that others, including children, may have the opportunity and hope in relief that I’ve had. Currently MLT isn’t a covered therapy, yet the cost for treatment is comparative to out of pocket expenses, deductibles, insurance co-pays which are often required and combined prescribed or OTC medications costs.

I would also like to request that you consider collaborating with, endorsing, or partnering with the Gohl Program. so that the chronic pain communities and the patients within them can make an informed decision regarding the benefits of Manual Ligament Therapy.

I’m available to share my treatment and my continued progress as needed.

You can watch my progress and relief with MLT in these 11 videos from Gohl Program TV on YouTube. other progress videos are available upon request.

As a 2 time suicide survivor February 14, 2016 and April 19, 2016 due to denials, delays, stigma, and untreated chronic pain care, I'm compelled to in this life share what saved me from that 3rd time. Which most likely would have been the last time.

The article below has quoted me. I've never been who the opioid apposing side believed we all were. I would have died clean of all substances.

Relief is possible with MLT. It really is. I've come farther in 7 weeks than I ever did in what becomes 17 years next month.
