Master Classes

" At the conclusion of each 3 day workshop I am reminded that NPT can be quite a difficult treatment to master, and it has taken me 10 years to get there. This Seminar is basically an intense course of short cuts.": Dr. John Lyftogt.

     Comments from Master Class Participants:

    • Starting the day I returned from Seattle, I put into practice the new protocols we learned from the first patient on. I was really happy to improve a chronic pain patient who walked with a cane and had no standing balance enough to to successfully put on his pants while standing. I am not sure who was shocked more! He then forgot his cane and walked out. For the three days that I was in Seattle, I felt honored and privileged to be with a group of people who were not only extraordinarily caring but who were also very passionate in their search to find anyway possible to resurrect souls from the hell of chronic pain syndromes.  John, your story of a simple injection into your leg that turned into this treatment is a remarkable achievement. Your humble nature hides the impressive nature of your discovery. Dr Andre Panagos, MD, New York City, USA

    • I enjoyed my learning experience with John very much. I learned more than I could have in any seminar or workshop because we had so much one-on-one time with the Master himself. I came home with clinical skills that I immediately put to use. I had been using NPT for at least 1 year before I went to the Master's Class and found that a number of hard to treat cases were easy to treat when I returned. Dr. John gave me the exact guidance I needed to bring my skills to a whole new level. Dr Laurie Steelsmith, ND, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.

    1. After attending Dr Lyftogt’s Master Class, my treatment outcomes truly moved to the next ‘level’. While I utilise a number of approaches in the management of patients with musculoskeletal pain, Perineural Injection Therapy now plays an integral role. It is a powerful but low-risk intervention that has been the ‘breakthrough’ treatment approach for many of my patients with complex or recalcitrant pain presentations, finally allowing them to enjoy life again. Dr Bruce Jones, MD, Queensland, MD, Australia

    2. The master class helped accelerate my palpation skills and overall comfort with treating patients. Since the master class my business has grown with patients who I have been able to improve and/or get them pain free. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to incorporate NPT into their practice to take the master class. It has allowed me to have a tool where I don’t fear treating pain patients. Dr Brenden Cochran, ND, Seattle USA
    3. I had high expectations with the Masterclass and they were well and truly met. I have been to many workshops and conferences but none was quite like this.The course was very detailed , went through all of the treatment protocols, dealt with the phsyiology , addressed detailed functional anatomy and surface anatomy and we were able to discuss specific patient presentations.John was amazing . He gave of himself tirelessly . It really was a neural prolotherapy smorgasboard .Overall it was an exceptional time.  Dr Murray Grave, MD, Victoria, Australia
