    Author

    Kristian Berg is a doctor of naprapathy, a medical therapy that focuses on manual manipulation and stretching of the spine and connective tissues. Since 1988 he has managed his own clinic in Stockholm, Sweden, where he specializes in musculoskeletal ultrasound diagnostics (MSKUL). He regularly lectures on MSKUL to specialists in orthopedics and sports medicine. As part of his practice, he is ESSR certified to offer PRP/ACP injections for severe tendon injuries. At his clinic, he has shown more than 30,000 patients the importance of stretching and muscular balance for overall health. Berg participates annually in international training courses in dissection, anatomy, and manipulative techniques.

    Berg works with Stockholm’s Idrottsgymnasium (the Stockholm high school of sports) in integrating a personal training education into their regular education. He is a lecturer in anatomy at the Scandinavian College of Naprapathic Manual Medicine in Stockholm and is a highly regarded speaker on stretching and athletic training in Sweden and throughout Europe. He is a frequent lecturer at the Global Hamstring Project (inaugural conference in 2015) and a regular attendee of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) World Conference.

    Before becoming a naprapath, Berg was a nationally ranked gymnast and a talented junior tennis player. More recently, he has competed as a multisport athlete and has climbed Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America. Berg resides in Svartsjo, Sweden.
