MC ForceMed is a multidisciplinary medical practice with focus on Musculoskeletal Medicine. Since 2004 Henk Bultman specialized in medical strength training (MST), both for diagnostic as well as therapeutic purposes.

Besides that MC ForceMed offers also preventive strength training (PST).

For both MST as well as PST we use machine based training.

First we worked with MedX Machine and since 2 years we are changing to use the David Health System.

In my lecture I will tell about MST and PST as an evidence based method, used in addition to MM treatment.
