The founder was the late Dr. Ichikawa, professor at Osaka University of Health and Sports Science, who was an orthopedic surgeon and sports doctor. Dr. Ichikawa was also a professional-ranking boxer in Japan when he was student in medical school.
Under his motto “never give up” and “hard exercise helps you”, Prof. Ichikawa and other founding members including Dr. Okubo, established the “Dynamic Therapeutic Exercise System” to treat lower back pain in athletes as well as laborers. This exercise system has been modified and applied to middle-aged and elderly people for their general health and to enjoy sports activities.
Dynamic Sports Medicine Institute in Osaka is famous in the Kansai area for the successful treatment of sports celebrities from Japan and around the world. Professional baseball players, golfers, boxers and Olympic champions have all been treated here.
