Holistic treatment of sports injuries

Marko Kolbezen, Sports Professor, Brezovica, Slovenia

Dear colleagues,
Allow me to introduce myself briefly.

I am Marko Kolbezen and I come from  Slovenia. I have gained considerable experience with bioresonance due to my son’s severe allergies. Following considerable success with treatment and having acquired an understanding of the manner in which the BICOM® device operates, I came up with the idea of applying bioresonance to the sports world as I work in this field as a sports instructor and personal trainer. Having used BICOM® for over four years, I can say that I am  increasingly enthusiastic about its effectiveness and the opportunities offered by the BICOM® device.

In my paper I will present the application of BICOM® bioresonance to the treatment of sports injuries. My work has brought me into contact with various injuries, namely: kneejoint injuries (especially injuries to the collateral and cruciate ligaments), injuries to the ankle joint (sprains), spinal injuries (overloading of individual segments (cervical spine, lumbar spine)), shoulder
injuries, injuries to the Achilles tendon, tennis elbow, etc.

In view of the limited amount of time available, I shall restrict myself in my paper to kneejoint injuries which I very often face in my work. However, generally speaking, the system presented can be successfully transferred to all other sports injuries.

Anatomy of the kneejoint

The structure of the kneejoint is very complicated and it is one of the largest joints in our body. The normal pressure on the kneejoint is 200 N/cm2 and this increases during running or sporting activity. It is also the joint exposed to the most stress, especially in sport, and consequently these injuries are the most frequent.

The stability of the knee depends upon a number of factors, of which the following are the most important (see figure 1):

  • bony element (tibia, fibula, femur, patella)
  • extra-articular structure (synovial fluid, joint membrane with ligaments, collateral ligament , muscle tendon structure)
  • intra-articular structure (cruciate ligaments and meniscus)
  • mechanical joint axis

Biomechanics of the kneejoint

The kneejoint moves around two axes – transverse and longitudinal. The movements in the transverse axis are flexion (bending) and extension (stretching). In the longitudinal axis the knee rotates inwards and outwards. Injury occurs most frequently due to dislocation of the kneejoint (articular surfaces have temporarily lost contact) through increased amplitude in one or other axis or even movement in both axes at the same time. The active stabilisers (muscles) and passive stabilisers (ligaments) resist increased amplitudes. Appropriately strong muscles are therefore the best protection against knee injuries. Exercise has only a limited influence on the passive stabilisers.

General remarks regarding the therapy system for injuries

The point after an injury or a surgical intervention at which we begin to work with the patient is very important. I have therefore provided examples of how I proceed: immediately after the injury, before the forthcoming operation and after surgical intervention. I normally use kinesiology and the biotensor when testing. I always test out priority. In this way, at the given time, the patient receives the treatment which their body also actually requires. It is also very important to test out the intervals at which treatment should be performed. The healing process may be delayed if treatments are performed too frequently!

Therapy system for kneejoint injury

Diagnosis: The degree of injury – whether the ligament is partially or completely torn or this is some other knee joint injury, etc. – must be confirmed with the traditional method of diagnosis. The degree of injury and our testing are crucial for our therapy. An operation is inevitable if the patient has torn ligaments / mechanical injuries of the bony elements (patella).

Kneejoint injuries where surgery is not necessary

1st stage

Progs. 460, 630 (injuries). The precise input is tested – sometimes the input is very limited – e.g. short flexible applicator on the inside of the knee (plus input, as described in the manual). Priority as regards applying the modulation mat is also tested out – sometimes the output is placed on the front of the body.

2nd stage

Progs. 930, 830, 610 (lymph activation). Input generally on the swollen knee or in the hollow of the knee – additional input may also be on the foot.

3rd stage

Orthopaedics Combined Test Technique (CTT) – pink ampoules to stabilise the patient with prog. 192.

4th stage

Stabilising the complete body – this can be done with basic program 124 or 5 element (5E) CTT.

In further therapy it is essential to test out whether blocks are blocking the body, e.g. scars (progs 910, 927, 341) or possibly radiation exposure (progs. 700, 701, 702) and also test out according to the usual system:

  1. basic program
  2. indicationrelated program
  3. orthopaedics CTT
  4. stabilisation with 5 element CTT.

Orthopaedics CTT – this test set often has top priority immediately after basic therapy or even as the sole therapy (!) – especially the pink ampoules which serve to stabilise the ligaments, tendons and muscles.

Chip

We also use information which has been transferred to a chip when treating the patient – I test out how many chips (often 26) should be placed in the chip storage device with which therapy. The chips are normally applied to the knee. Sometimes however a chip is also required on the liver area.

Therapy frequency

Initially I treat at 23 day intervals, then at 58 day intervals and finally at 2week intervals.

The stages I have described are merely suggestions and basic guidelines. The first priority might just be pain therapy, for example, and stabilisation with the orthopaedics CTT test set. I personally keep to the priorities which I test out.

Preparation for the operation (if surgery is not performed immediately after the injury)

Bioresonance therapy

1st stage

Test for possible blocks which could prevent therapy proceeding successfully. Radiation exposure – progs. 700, 701, 702; blocks in tissue due to scars – progs. 910, 927, 341.

2nd stage

Basic therapy – according to quadrant value or conductivity (prog. 105 or 130 is frequently required), whereby the input goes on the injured joint and the output – modulation mat – on the stomach.

3rd stage

Indicationrelated program to prepare for surgery progs. 951, 921; increasing powers of resistance prog. 570 and lymph activation progs. 930, 830.

4th stage

Stabilisation of the whole body – this can be done with basic program 124 or 5 element (5E) CTT.

Preparation for the operation

Generally 23 treatment sessions at 23 day intervals. The last therapy is performed one day before the operation.

Additional therapies

Strengthening of all leg muscles with strengthening exercises on fitness equipment to extend the knees, bend the knees, move the knees, standing on tiptoes, exercises to strengthen the abdominal and back muscles as well as those of the upper body. Load 5055% of maximal strength, 23 sets, 1220 repetitions. The strength of the muscles in the injured leg (especially quadriceps) should if possible attain the same level as that of the healthy leg.

Therapy following surgery to the cruciate ligaments

Begin therapy as soon as possible after the operation!

1st stage

Blocks in tissue due to scars – progs. 910, 900, 927, 341.

2nd stage

Basic therapy – most frequently105 or 130 – input on the injured knee, output – modulation mat on abdomen or back.

3rd stage

Lymph activation – progs. 930, 830, 610; wound healing – progs. 927, 951, 839; cell regeneration – prog. 951, 839.

4th stage

Orthopaedics CTT – generally just the pink ampoules to stabilise the patient, the yellow ampoules are usually only also used after several therapy sessions.

5th stage

5 element CTT – mostly the ampoules for muscles, large joints, liver, fatty tissue

Therapy interval

If we have started immediately after surgery (within one week), treatment is given at 23 day intervals, then weekly or fortnightly.

Additional therapies

  • Physical rehabilitation – activation of the leg muscles with the Compex muscle stimulator, extension exercises for mobility, static strengthening exercises for the leg muscles
  • Exercises on balance pads and benches to improve proprioception
  • Drug treatment

Drug treatment following injury

The ability of the BICOM® device to check whether the body will react and not tolerate the intended admixtures (drugs and other preparations) and whether the body really needs the chosen preparations is of immeasurable value.

We normally recommend the following as an admixture to support the patient:

glucosamine + chondroitine + MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), vitamin C, vitamin B.

Procedure for testing drugs

Input cup: the preparation being tested.

Prog. 170 – resonance (positive muscle test) – means the patient does not tolerate the preparation the patient is advised against taking the preparation.

Prog. 171 – if there is resonance, the patient is advised to take the preparation, in the event of dissonance the body does not need the product.

Applying the chip during therapy

With all therapy the use of 26 chips is recommended for the individual therapy programs. These are often therapies which the body needs most. For example, with a swollen knee, which very often happens, especially with intensive exercises to strengthen the muscle, the programs are on the chip: lymph activation and 192 stabilisation programs with the pink ampoules of the orthopaedics CTT. It is important that the patient stops wearing the chips in further physiotherapy sessions to avoid losing them.

It is important that the patient removes the chips during electrophysiotherapy so that the information remains on the chip. Electronic smog occurring through electrophysiotherapy may also have a negative effect. Once physiotherapy has been completed the patient can apply the chips again.

Cryotherapy or treating the joint with ice

In practice the kneejoint warms up after all physical activity and also some BICOM® therapies and therefore it is essential to cool down the knee. It is recommended to do this for 515 minutes immediately after therapy. This should be repeated 26 times each day. The best approach is to test kinesiologically how often each day cooling with ice is required.

Muscle strengthening which stabilises the kneejoint

This is a very important element of rehabilitation after a kneejoint injury. It is advisable to enlist the help of a trainer at the fitness centre as he can decide on the correct load and tailor the training programme to the individual’s needs.

Summary

As I have described, rehabilitation following a knee injury consists of several elements. It is important that all those who are performing the individual elements work together. As BICOM® therapists you have a significant influence on the speed and quality of the rehabilitation. You also have the best overview of the state of the knee and what may be blocking the progress of therapy (electronic smog, scars, etc.). In the cases I treated, rehabilitation from the time of injury to full athletic load (competition level) was over a third faster (rehab time was around one third shorter) than is “normal” with similar injuries.

Added to which, the patient’s condition did not deteriorate later (no pinching of the joint, pain, etc.), as is very often the case otherwise.

I should now like to present two cases, namely an acute injury (sprain) of an ankle joint and an “injury” which was actually the result of specific physical overstrain.

TWO SPECIAL CASE STUDIES

Case 1: Acute injury – sprained ankle joint

Sprained ankle joint
Figure 4:Sprained ankle joint

A man came to my surgery on the day of his injury with a badly sprained ankle joint. The joint was already swollen and he was barely able to walk.

After testing out priority, therapy was as follows:

1st day

Progs. 101, 630, 460, 610, orthopaedics CTT – pink stabilising ampoules (all except for bone fractures).

4 chips – two on the inside and two on the outside of the ankle joint – on the most swollen points.

In addition: informed water for compresses with progs. 630, 460, 610; cryotherapy with icepacks; Basica powder (minerals and citrates) – 5 g dissolved in 1.5 l drinking water for drinking; crutches.

2nd day

Now able to walk almost without pain, swelling was reduced, mobility still limited.

Progs. 830, 930, 610, 460, 630.

3 chips – again on swollen points.

In addition: massage oil with information from progs. 610, 460, 630; cryotherapy with icepacks; Basica powder – 5 g dissolved in 1.5 l drinking water for drinking; crutches.

4th day

Swelling had gone down completely, walking now easier, improved mobility.

Progs. 630, 610, orthopaedics CTT – yellow ampoules with progs. 191, 192, orthopaedics CTT – pink stabilising ampoules – prog. 192.

2 chips – prog. orthopaedics CTT.

In addition: oil to massage with information from progs. 610, 630; Basica powder – 5 g in 1.5 l drinking water; crutches.

8th day

The ankle joint could withstand gentle sports activities once again, no longer any swelling, normal mobility.

Progs. 460, 320, 600, 951, 839.

1 chip – progs. 951, 839 – this should be worn for 14 days!

Also: Basica powder – 5 g in 1.5 l drinking water; crutches for sports activities; crème to improve the circulation;

exercises to strengthen and stabilise the ankle joint on balance cushions and benches.

Testing revealed further therapy not necessary. Consequently therapy was terminated. The patient was given instructions for exercises to strengthen the structure of the joint muscle and consequently protect against and prevent further injury.

The patient was enthusiastic as he was already able to start sporting activities within a few days – surfing, jogging. He remembered that, with a similar previous injury which was not treated with BICOM®, it had taken 3 weeks’ treatment to reach this stage.

Case 2: “Injury”, which was in practice not an injury

The mother of one of Slovenia’s best tennis players called me on a Monday afternoon. In the middle of an important game her son had had to interrupt the tournament because of severe pain in his foot directly above the toes. It had apparently happened through an awkward move yet he had already been experiencing pain in this area for about one month.

An X ray revealed nothing abnormal. He was instructed by his doctor to take a 3week break and, should he still be in pain after that, thorough examinations would be conducted. As a 3week break spells ruin for a professional sportsman, I was asked to help. We arranged a testing which revealed the following stresses:

  • scar interference field
  • chronic bacterial infection
  • chronic viral infection
  • disturbed elimination
  • mycosal infestation (Candida, Alternaria, skin)
  • parasitic infestation (intestines, skin, etc.)

After a discussion and taking the patient’s full medical history, therapy proceeded as follows:

1st therapy session

Progs. 910, 105, 460, 192 5 element CTT.
2 chips on the pain site.

Also: after testing admixtures which were applied he was given lymphdiaral 3 times each day, 2.5 to 3 l still water.

2nd therapy session (3rd day)
Slight improvement, less pain.
Progs. 930, 192 orthopaedics CTT – stabilising ampoules, 125.
3 chips – two on the pain site, one below the navel.

Also: Lymphdiaral, Basica powder

3rd therapy session (5th day)
Significant improvement, he was already able to train gently in the afternoons.
Prog. 930. After testing priority I began
therapy: chronic bacterial infection – bacteria CTT, stabilising with 5 element CTT.
3 chips – on the affected site and they remained there until the next therapy session, with information from bacterial CTT – on thymus.

Also: lymph preparation, Basica powder.

4th therapy session (8th day)
Slight pain still present in foot but able to train at 80% of his capacity!
Progs. 101, 630, 201, 126.
1 chip – on affected site.
Also: Basica powder, Chlorella, multivitamins.

After the 4th therapy session the patient was able to take part in the tournament again, practically without any pain!

I advised him to continue the therapy to treat the other infections but he was unable to do so due to tournaments abroad.

At the moment (1 year after the last therapy session) the sportsman is free from symptoms. This is also expected to continue in the long term!

TWO FURTHER CASE STUDIES

Case 3: Male, aged 36, reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligaments

Therapy begun – 3 weeks after surgery.

1st therapy session

Progs. 701, 702, 105, 192 orthopaedics CTT – stabilisation.

2 chips 701, 702 to help neutralise electronic smog following electrostimulation in spa bath.

14 days’ break – rehabilitation clinic.

2nd therapy session

Progs. 701, 610, 191, 192 orthopaedics CTT (yellow ampoules), 192 stabilisation ampoules.

4 chips.

Also: 2000 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, Basica powder, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

3rd therapy session

Progs. 105, 191 bacterial CTT, 192 stabilisation, 192 5 element CTT.

2 chips.

Also: 2000 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, Basica powder, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

4th therapy session

Progs. 105, 191 viral CTT, 930, 830, 192 5 element CTT.

2 chips.

Also: 2000 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, Basica powder, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

5th therapy session

Progs. 105, 192 orthopaedics CTT – stabilisation ampoules, Candida therapy (according to CTT system).

1 chip

Also: 2000 mg glucosamine daily, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

6th therapy session

Progs. 101, Candida according to CTT system.

Also: 2000 mg glucosamine daily, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

Joint: as therapy was begun relatively late after surgery and numerous stresses were present, specific therapies and programs were necessary directly for the knee. We relieved the body through therapies for the remaining stresses (Candida, chronic stress from viruses and bacteria) so that the kneejoint healed better and faster. Moreover I continued the therapy for 2 months at treatment intervals of 1421 days, especially with the programs for lymph activation and stabilisation of the ligaments, tendons and muscles.

Case 4: Male, aged 17, basketball player, injury to the medial lateral ligament

Therapy started: 6 days after surgery.

1st therapy session
Progs. 126, 192 orthopaedics CTT.
Also: 1500 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

2nd therapy session
Progs. 911, 511, 191 orthopaedics CTT,
192 orthopaedics CTT.

Also: 1500 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

3rd therapy session

Progs. 920, 192 orthopaedics CTT, 192 5 element CTT

Also: 1500 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle.

4th-10th therapy sessions

The programs used most frequently were: 101, 105, 125, 701, 702, 927, 341, 930, 830, 951, 610, orthopaedics CTT.

Also: 1500 mg glucosamine daily, multivitamins, exercises to stabilise the knee and strengthen the muscle, leg muscles strengthened using Compex muscle stimulator. After each exercise the patient also cooled down the knee joint.

I performed the first 10 therapies within a 40 day timespan. 5 further therapy sessions were conducted over the next 4 months.

After 4 months the patient was able to join in a basketball game once more. I should like to add here that the patient did not have any other health issues and so consequently therapy progressed more quickly and easily.

Concluding remarks

It has been a pleasure to deliver my lecture and to tell you how you too can help your patients with a range of sports injuries. The opportunities to use the BICOM® device are practically unlimited. Your patients’ satisfaction and gratitude should encourage you to keep looking for new ways to apply the therapy.

Thank you for listening and may I wish you every success with your work!
