Durtnall is the chiropractic pioneer in Saudi Arabia as visiting consultant to the Saudi Royal Family: Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since 1985. He is listed in Tatler's 'Britain's 250 Best Private Doctors' and as a specialist for www.danceuk.org , coccyx.org , pelvicpain.org and www.PudendalHope.info

He has expertise in computed digital x-ray diagnosis, spinal nerve compression, scoliosis, sciatic neuralgia, postural rehabilitation, sports and dance injuries and medical acupuncture.

Michael is the world expert in the diagnosis and treatment of coccyx, sacroiliac and musculoskeletal pelvic pain as well as costochondritis and is an international speaker at many Symposia and Congresses.

Many patients get great relief from spinal adjustments, while others prefer not to have any manipulation of spinal joints. Michael's broad range of techniques offers maximum patient comfort so that he can give gentle mobilisation and stretching or joint manipulation, as requested by patients.

Research

Michael started his PhD at the Institute of Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS) at RNOH, Stanmore and has transferred his paediatric bone-growth research to
UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health. He is investigating his original technique to increase tibial and femoral long-bone growth in the shorter leg of children with significant leg-length difference to minimise compensatory scoliosis, back and joint pain and avoid surgery.

Michael registered his PhD at the Institute of Musculoskeletal Science (IOMS) at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), Stanmore and transferred his bone-growth research to UCL School of Life & Medical Sciences, Faculty of Population Health Sciences at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOSICH)

Michael is investigating his original technique to increase tibial and femoral long-bone growth in the shorter leg of children with significant leg-length difference to minimise pelvic obliquity, compensatory scoliosis, back and joint pain and to avoid epiphysiodesis surgery (surgically shortening the longer leg). He is researching part-time at GOSICH while treating patients full time at Kensington.
