Dr. Loren Rex
Loren Rex/URSA

Loren Rex, DO, was a Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine Specialist in Edmonds, WA and had over 50 years of experience in the medical field. He graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1970.

The Ursa Foundation was founded in 1976 to conduct courses in manual medicine.
Its board members included DO’s, MD’s, physical therapists, physiotherapists, athletic trainers, a chiropractor, teachers, and business people. Students were accepted who were licensed, registered or certified with statutory authority to apply the techniques learned.

Ursa philosophy was that the body is a functional unit and should be evaluated as such. Courses were clinically oriented and scientifically based. Courses offered clinicians the opportunity to learn techniques and strategies to achieve a successful manual practice. Ursa courses provided information to help improve the quality of patient care and expedite the rehabilitation of athletes. He taught thousands of students.

Pete Emerson
Pete Emerson/Manual Therapy Seminars

Pete Emerson’s philosophy is: Focus on the Individual. Figure out what is wrong, and then adapt 30 years of knowledge and experience to fix the problem. People can have dysfunction in any and all of the three main musculoskeletal systems: The Articular System (joints); the Muscular System; and the Neurological System. I perform an extensive evaluation in each of these systems on every person who enters the clinic, because every person is different. Although they may share similar dysfunctions, they need to be treated with different techniques or with different sequences.
