AP / NA Correction

Oops !
Aponeurotomy is the 'dissection', not the 'removal' of the aponeurosis.

Motivation

Dear E.Wix

Short stay??? Six months is not a short stay. Once again you are trying to downplay the importance of being properly qualified in NA before practicing it.

Why?????

If AP were NA then AP would have been used for DC long ago, it hasn't - they are not the same. So I ask myself what is your motivation in trying to convince us that they are the same?

The only NA trained doctors in North America are Dr. Spacek and Dr. Eaton. I will NOT lay my hand down for the needle to someone who has not been train in NA.

Frances.

I agree. Lets stick with NA as we want to eliminate the possiblity of confusing anyone.

NA for DC

Frances,

I agree that it is better to stay with NA for DC than AP for DC.

Now as for the MD From Canada, she did spend about six months in Paris according to all reliable information. Dr. Eaton spent about one week with the inventor of NC according to avaiable information. This is good on Doctor Eaton's part endeavoring to help his patients with the best
procedure for DC. He is a very caring and kind person taking his own time to make the trip to Paris on his own. Blessings to Dr. Eaton in Florida and Dr. Bourland in Tennessee. Also, credit to those physicians in Europe, primarily France (Paris)for their work in this area where NA started. Things have to start some place.

We are trying to advance NA - not stop the movement. Thanks.

You are right on!

Best regards,

EC

homemade CD

Dear Bert,

I googled you email address and found that in Sept of 2003 you were trying to purchase a homemade video CD of the NA.
Were you successful? Is this homemade video CD how Dr. Bourland 'observed' Dr. Badois performing NA?

It is important that a doctor be properly trained in NA before performing it or the integrity of NA will be lost.

The list of NA practitioners is on the French Forum and does not include Dr. Bourlands name.

Warm regards,
Frances

Ask Eaton

This was recently added to Dr. Eaton's site:

Why aren't more doctors doing needle aponeurotomy? Many doctors in the US are simply not aware of the benefits of NA. Also, there is a very strong surgical tradition in the US of fasciectomy (removing the abnormal tissue) instead of fasciotomy (cutting the tight cord). It's just a matter of time before this changes - there's no conspiracy, no hidden agendas.

"Strong Surgical Tradition". Among other things, Eaton is apparently a fine Diplomat!

Concerning this current discussion regarding maintaining the "purity " of NA in the US and the necessity of training under Dr. Lermusiaux . The fact is, If NA catches on in the US as Eaton thinks it will, at some point US doctors will train each other. Eaton got it down by hanging out with Lermusiaux for a week. For an experienced hand surgeon this is probably not "Rocket Surgery". Since none of us has had the pleasure of cutting open a hand full of Dups and doing a fasciectomy, how quickly this intimate knowledge of the hand translates to knowing what to do (and not to do) with a syringe is quite beyond our understanding. Who would know is Eaton himself. As far as I know, he is the only hand surgeon doing NA anywhere in the world. The Europeans practitioners are mostly rheumatologists, since that's what Lermusiaux is. The questions we need to pose to Eaton is:

"How hard will it be for your fellow surgeons to learn NA properly? How important is it for them, like you, to go to Paris? Could US docs come to you for training?"

Eaton's answers to those questions is what we should base our opinions and actions on. No poster to this site could begin to have the insight Eaton will. So, whoever is next on the block with Eaton......ask him while you're lying there.

Name

Frances,

My name is Elbert C. Wicks. I use Bert: Short for Elbert and E. C. plus Wicks or Wix for short.

Added Info: Another short.

NA in Europe NA is Needle Aponovrotomy.

NA in the USA is Needle Aponeurotomy.

In the US the Needle Aponeurotomy is covered by most medical insurance and Medicare as a Percutaneous Fasciotomy, CPT Code 26040.

Most of those on this forum are seeking help about treatment for their DC, and those that want to help as best they can, and some that seemingly enjoy critizing rather than promoting NA to the fullest extent possible.
Lets push NA in the USA.
