 “A thourough clinical examination taking into account extensive anatomical knowledge is very helpful to reach a number of specific diagnoses, making the need for medical imaging less necessary.”

Dr. K. Fabry, MD, Belgium

“I have a big enthusiasm to incorporate this knowledge into my daily practice as a medical doctor, in order to have more fun and efficiency in the field of orthopaedic medicine”
Dr. S. Boonen, MD, Belgium

 “During this course I learned, in a relaxed atmosphere, a valueble clinical reasoning process which I can directly implement into clinical practice.”

Mrs. F. Vossen, PT, Holland

"Hi Steven, I just wanted to say hello and send you a quick and very big THANK YOU! After starting my own practice 3 years ago, I have to tell you that – despite all my other training and continued education in all kinds of additional diagnostic and therapeutic methods (Diploma in Osteopathy, Sportsosteopathy, Sportsmedicine, various Forms of Taping, Chinese Medicine Forms, Physical Therapies etc. etc.) I owe a large portion of the success of my practice to the structured and precise diagnostic patterns and clinical reasoning of OM Cyriax!
At first I was kind of sceptical if a practice in the orthopaedic field without having my own X-Ray would work - well, as time and patient-satisfaction show, there is no need for X-Ray in my own practice and the clinical findings through structured examination even surpass MRI occasionally (For example a Lumbar Prolaps I “found” did not show on regular MRI; since symptoms got worse he got an extra thin layer imaging and voila – there it was...)
I can not tell you how glad I am that I took the chance of getting to know you and the OM Cyriax through one of your Introductory Courses and then deciding to go on with the Training through all the Courses. Thank you again! I hope all is well for you and your Family and I wish you all the Best for 2016!"
Dr. Philipp Wolf, MD, Neustadt in Holstein, Germany

"Thanks Steven, your professional seriousness, your friendly approach and willingness to help have taught me what it means to be a serious and competent physiotherapist. It has been one of the most positive experiences in my working life!"
Mrs. V. Consoli, PT, Italy


"I can say : among all my courses I have taken during 16 years as a physiotherapist cyriax course was the best." 
Mr. B. Al Assari, PT, Saudi Arabia

"Hi Steven, thank you very much for everything I learned during the training with you. You are a great teacher, I already start to apply successfully technics learned from you. Personally and professionally I see OM Cyriax method very useful and I will not forget to mention the great time we spent during the training, I had a lot of fun!"
Mr. S. Romas, PT, Romania/France

"I am comfortable to speak for both of us. Mike and I have every intention with going to the course next year! By the way, I have using the lumbar and cervical techniques in my clinic with very favorable results. I do not have the "tabasco" yet, but I am still getting good results. The evalution forms have been very helpful. Thank you, the training has really changed the way I practice and the way I think."
James Trout - Michael Slaminski , PT, USA


“It’s a “no bull shit” course, in which you learn to reach a diagnosis and establish a treatment plan in a fast and efficient way”
Mr. G. Evora, PT,Holland


“I learned to come to a diagnosis in a more objective and specific way, in order to give a more efficient treatment”
Mrs. C. Niet, PT, Holland
