National University faculty member and MSACP student, Dr. Roy Settergren, presented a case study at the International doctor roy settergrenFascia Research Congress held in Vancouver during the last week of March. Dr. Settergren also received support for his attendance from the Ida Rolf Research Foundation.

The case he presented, “Conservative care of a saphenous nerve entrapment in a female ultramarathon runner,” is a project from his master’s degree program in advanced clinical practice. His paper will also be published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies.

“This type of nerve entrapment is relatively rare, but definitely under-diagnosed,” says Dr. Settergren. His paper is the first conservative treatment account for this condition to be published. His treatment focuses on using diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound as a point of care technology.

Settergren has several years of experience in using ultrasound technology, and was elected to write part of the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography’s musculoskeletal sonography exam for those seeking the RMSK (registered musculoskeletal sonographer) credential.

Regarding his experience at the congress, Dr. Settergren says: “I had the pleasure of meeting the president of the National Institues of Health (NIH) there, as well as internationally known researchers. It was an amazing experience that really encouraged me to continue to publish new cases and to further promote the use of ultrasound to diagnose and evaluate treatment efficacy.”
