Patient Testimonials on a NYC Chiropractor /Applied Kinesiologist/NeuroKinetic Therapist

 

The following testimonials are from “Patient Testimonials” page on our web site http://www.drvittoriarepetto.com

 

I have been receiving chiropractic treatments for more than 40 years.  During that time period, I had the opportunity to meet only two outstanding chiropractors.  Dr. Repetto is one of these two.

Dr. Repetto has an extensive knowledge base that allows her to “think-outside-of-the-box” and provide each patient with an individualized treatment plan.  Most importantly, she implements each patient’s plan in a caring and compassionate manner, and she consistently uses progress monitoring to adjust the plan as needed.

I highly recommend Dr. Repetto to all.

 Dr. Repetto is a unique individual with a breadth of knowledge and a determination to help her patients that is rare and valuable. If you are looking for a routine set of adjustments that each patient receives routinely, this is NOT the doctor for you. Dr. Repetto cares about the root cause of patients’ issues, and assesses and treats people holistically. She’s helped me improve movement, and recover from injury, and when i had a horrible bout of bronchitis she treated me daily.  This is a unique talent, motivated by the desire to help, not money.

 I have been seeing Dr. Repetto for almost 20 years. She is incredibly knowledgable and quite a gifted  healer. She has helped me structurally as well as nutritionally. Anyone looking for a comprehensive approach to healing, you will not be disappointed. I am so glad I found her!!

 I was first seen by Dr. Vittoria Repetto in the 1990’s for sciatica and lower back pain that was at the time very severe and limited my abilities to perform many of my daily activities. After several hour-long treatments with Dr Repetto, I am happy and grateful to say my  sciatica and lower back ache and pain went away and had not returned.

On Mother’s Day 2011, I suffered an extremely serious and almost fatal fall from a darken stairwell. I required several surgeries afterwards. However, I was left with weaknesses in both my hands and arms, terrible pain in my lower back and weakness in my hips.

I finally chose to see Dr. Repetto after a long absence to seek treatment for what seem as unfixable problems. In addition to using chiropractic and applied kinesiology, Dr. Repetto has now added neurokinetic therapy to her list of techniques What I now find is that I get immediate relief, effective zeroing in on my pain and more lasting results. I am always amazed by how much better I feel when I leave the office and how it brings true pain relief and health benefits that last.

An example of this was a limp I was experiencing after dealing with my mom in Florida who had a stroke. Dr. Repetto was able to diagnose and treat the limp in one visit and I literally was able to walk significantly better and the limp has not return.

I highly recommend Dr. Vittoria Repetto without reservation.

I saw Dr. Repetto when my back went out unexpectedly 48 hours before taking a trip to Hawaii. I was scheduled for an appointment quickly and seen promptly. Dr. Repetto took a detailed medical history and gave me a thorough exam. She was able to get me out of pain with adjustment and massage and gave me exercises and strategies to manage pain for my trip. I was able to snorkle and hike Diamondhead without any issues thanks to her.

Nine years ago I went to see Dr. Repetto for a chronic lower back problem and now I can’t imagine life without her healing hands.  Currently she keeps me healthy and pain-free through regular chiropractic treatments while recommending nutritional supplements (when needed) to improve any health issues that might arise. Another miracle was performed by Dr. Repetto for a friend of mine that suffers from CLL leukemia, diabetes and heart problems.  Bedridden with a weak immune system, her doctors offered no help.  Desperate, I turned to Dr. Repetto who researched her symptoms and suggested specific nutritional supplements.  Within 24 hours of taking the supplements, her immune system was improving and is gaining strength with each day!  Dr. Repetto is a life-saver and a doctor you can trust!

I had a chronic back problem several years ago. I had been treated by physical therapy for a long time. Afterwards, I was not getting any better and did not want to continue. So I had stopped going.  One day while at work a co-worker had told me of a Chiropractor that he had seen for his own back problem. I decided to see the Chiropractor and what the physical therapist could not do she was able to do.

 I can vouch for Dr. Repetto! She’s been my chiropractor for about six years, and she just worked magic on an old injury.

I had to have surgery to reconstruct my shattered pelvis after a very serious accident in 2011. My surgeon warned me at the time that I would lose feeling on the front of my thigh because they would have to sever a nerve serving that skin. While I’m profoundly grateful to have regained 100% of my strength and range of motion, I’ve been mourning the loss of sensation in that large area ever since.. Damn!

I just had to have yet another surgery related to that same accident and I’ve had some concerns about post surgery nerve function in a muscle group adjacent to the numb skin on my thigh. I asked Dr. Repetto to check it out, and she also did some work on the numb area. I’m thrilled and astounded to be able to say that after she treated me the other night I seem to have suddenly regained sensation in a large portion of the numb skin area! Honestly, that should have been impossible. I don’t have full sensation yet. It’s kind of tingly, but I have another appointment with Dr. Repetto next week. Crossing fingers. It would be magical to regain that area.

 Dear Dr. Repetto,

Your treatment made all the difference for Leah for the two remaining weeks of her ballet courses. Leah said she followed your advice, keeping her arches iced and elevated at every opportunity and being careful to tone down on higher impact leaps and movements – such as the repetitive hops on pointe on one foot. She also did some segments of the corp de ballet group class work just in her ballet slippers. But, she was able to continue doing the pointe work for the classical ballet solo roles that the studio was teaching.

As I mentioned when we spoke that day, everyone else I’d called on the studio’s medical referral list didn’t have any appointment openings available for 2 or 3 weeks or more and I was really beginning to despair. Leah would have been sidelined for the entire remainder of the repertory course if she’d had to wait that long, which would have made her truly miserable, especially since she’d worked so hard helping to save up so she could attend the program.

Thank you again for your marvelous promptness in providing treatment to Leah on such short notice and for your generous provision of your time, kind follow-ups, and wonderful patient care.

Best regards,

Elizabeth T – Leah’s mother

 I truly wish to continue the treatments because of how amazingly conprehensive your style of practice is from ordinary Chiropractors.  I had no idea that ther was such a thing as an Applied Kinesiologist! It’s really awesome.  And I especially appreciate your nutritional service and approach- something I had never expected from a chiropractor!  But of course, it was no

surprise, it’s the reason why I knew I wanted you to be my Chiropractor. I had read your article and was sold!

It worked too! somehow I had a(n) (emotional) “release” during one manipulation which had me in an absolute  Zen state of hilarity for a good 1 -2 minutes or more!  Remember? I couldn’t stop laughing. I saw the irony of myself, everthing and everyone and how miniscule

things really are compared to TRUE brilliant,beautiful, unified, bright reality.  LOL! Holy Cow!  That’s the hallmark of a great body worker!

 “Dr. Vittoria Repetto is an excellent Chiropractor and Applied Kinesiologist. Her superb knowledge and ability to solve issues has helped relieve painful issues that presented in my life. Dr. Repetto is a caring, concerned healer. Her rates are so very reasonable and the service is priceless. I highly recommend Dr. Vittoria Repetto to attend to your chiropractic needs. She also offers vitamin, mineral supplements that really help increase energy and promote good health”

 I went to Dr. Repetto because I felt swollen and I knew this was not a weight gain. I was diagnosed w/ food allergies to oat, corn, wheat and soy. After extensive therapy, I was back to normal. In addition, I had gall bladder and thyroid problems, which Dr. Repetto has helped w/ chiropractic, acu-point therapy, proper nutrition and supplements. I feel like a new person.

Barbara Marino

 Vittoria – so I think you remember, and I want to THANK YOU for all your advice regarding gall bladder cleaning – I want to post about this too on Facebook and thank you, if that is OK – I had the six month followup on my gall bladder – and while I am not 100% clean, my doctor said he had never seen such rapid improvement – which he said had to be the diet on top of the Ursodial medicine – the scans are just incredible – from a gall bladder full of sludge and stones, to one with such a scattering of tiny sparkles, remnants of what was there and no edema or wall swelling and no issues with the bile ducts – I am still going to continue with ursodial another 6 months at least, and of course, olive oil, artichoke, healthy fats, mostly vegetarian and fish – but really the changes are incredible and what should take two years, took about 6 months – really thank you

 “It is not much of an exaggeration to write that Dr. Repetto has helped me get my complete health back, something that I have sought for over 20 years.

Many people who have known me for a long time, who meet me now, cannot help but comment on how healthy I look and act. I obviously wanted to be healthy for myself but I hope that how Dr. Repetto was able to help me, that others are similarly helped! Her understanding of the role that nutrition plays in one’s life has made me feel as if I were 3 years old again!

I have recommended her work to others who have also been greatly helped by her. I am certain that they will write glowing recommendations based on how much she has helped them. The most important aspect of her work is the time and commitment she will dedicate to your health, if you are also willing to do so!”

Tricia Mullen

 Suffering from lower back problems for 2 years, bulging and herniated discs – I was at my wits end! I’ve been to physical therapy and chiropractors, but within weeks, I was back to where I started, crippled, body out of alignment and in pain! I arrived at Dr. Repetto’s office with very little knowledge of kinesiology, quite nervous and hoping for some relief. Within one week I started feeling better both physically and emotionally. She’s also developed a program of nutrition, exercise and vitamins to improve my whole being. It’s now been several months with no back pain. Dr. Repetto’s experience and knowledge in treating the whole body is unmatched. I trust her implicitly and know I’m in the very best of hands. She truly has the gift of healing!

Maria McIsaac

 I know Vittoria for so many years now, and I cannot be happier for knowing that I can always rely on her. She is not only a great chiropractor, she is a nutritionist, a consultant and most important someone who really cares about you and your well-being. You can call her anytime, she is always there for you. She is honest and deeply concerned about your problems: she is the kind of doctor that every doctor, in any discipline, should be, but unfortunately is not anymore. I highly recommend her!!!

Laura Caparrotti

 Dr. Vittoria Repetto has been an amazing health professional who has not only helped me in dealing with back pain but in strengthening my back, posture and my vitamin needs. She will take care of you and spend time with you as no other chiropractic doctor I have ever known. I cannot say more about her professionalism and… her awesome approach to healing! You will be amazed as well. I have known her since 1990!

Jesus Sanchez

 Dear Dr. Repetto,

Since you treated me, I have learned what my problem actually was (not what other doctors were “saying” it was) and I have been feeling better with what seemed like a chronic condition for many years. I guess I’m shocked that other doctors did not understand, or care to take the time to understand what was going on and you did. Thank you for your insight and your skill. The exercises you gave me, as well as the supplements, have made my leg feel stronger and I no longer wake up in the middle of the night in pain. Thanks so much.

Clare Ultimo

 Dr. Repetto is a really great doctor and person who I have had the pleasure of knowing and seeing for 20 years. My mother, myself and now my wife are all patients. She is an expertly skilled chiropractor who has provided us with great relief. She is knowledgeable and caring, which is what makes her so good at her job. She is also very helpful regarding nutrition and exercise. Thanks very much Dr. Repetto for all the help you have provided me over the years and will continue to provide.

Matthew Shorr

 I have been visiting Dr. Vittoria Repetto for my chiropractic needs for the last two years. I initially went to her for upper back problems. I am pleased to report that she has completely rid me of upper back pain. As a bonus, Dr. Repetto was also able to cure a nagging shoulder problem that had bothered me for several years. I had lost complete range of motion in my left shoulder and had started to wonder if I would need surgery. After 4 visits over the course of about a month and a half, I regained full range of motion and my shoulder hasn’t bothered me since. That was about nine months ago. Dr. Repetto has also helped me with wrist problems related to computer use. I highly recommend Dr. Repetto to anyone with back problems or joint problems in any area of the body. She is the very best.

Kim M.

 I came to Dr. Repetto to help me deal w/ chronic neck and shoulder pain, TMJ and an ear that was constantly popping. One day, following my first two visits, it struck me that my neck no longer hurt, and my ear no longer pops. The TMJ is better too. Thanks, Doc.!

Martha Colby

 As a member of PHI and a subscriber to Post-Polio Health, I would like to respond to your query concerning chiropractors. I have personally been to a number of chiropractors and have found that, as in all of the health care professions, dramatic variations exist among the practitioners and the types of treatments offered. Fortunately, I found an expert chiropractor in New York, Dr. Vittoria Repetto who treats patients with gentle chiropractic manipulation, applied kinesiology (muscle balancing and strengthening work), acupressure, nutrition, etc. I believe it is important that you clarify your goals when seeking chiropractic care. My personal results with my chiropractor during the last years have been outstanding. I have increased my walking ability and am much stronger. Don’t be discouraged — I went to many orthopedists, podiatrists, physical therapists and other chiropractors before finding a chiropractor that had the extraordinary knowledge and techniques to make a vast improvement in my quality of life.

Tammy Raum   Printed in: http://www.post-polio.org/net/help3.html

 Before I came to see Dr. Repetto, I had constant shoulder and neck pain. I had been told I should not play golf (a passion of mine) and that I may need an operation.

I am happy to say that Dr. Repetto has gotten me to a point where I am practically pain free and more important playing golf without any problems. And I certainly don’t need an operation.

I can not say enough about Dr. Repetto. If you are looking for a doctor who truly listens to you and one who will treat the whole person and not just symptoms, she is definitely the doctor for you.

Connie B.

 Dr. Vittoria Repetto is a gifted and patient-friendly chiropractor who works in an airy, upbeat and comfortable office on West Broadway just south of Canal Street. Years of dedicated practice and a nature talent allow her to adapt a full range of chiropractic procedures to each patient’s special needs. Her treatments inevitably leave one with a feeling of heightened energy, and can result in direct relief from physical pain. In addition to spinal, cranial, muscle stretching and acu-point therapies, all provided with a consideration of the client’s general medical condition, Dr. Repetto offers expert advice on nutrition and exercise in terms of individual lifestyles.

Anthony B.

 I have been to many chiropractors for many different health problems such as my asthma over the course of 30 years. I was new to the New York area and had not seen or known of many doctors here.

When my problems became unmanageable, I sought out and, by some miracle, came upon Dr. Vittoria Repetto. I called her and she was able to accommodate me that same day. After my first treatment, there was a profound difference in my overall wellbeing. I was truly shocked. Even my family noticed that I was improved and all were impressed after only the first time.

I continue to improve as Dr. Repetto works with me and treats me in the many areas of chiropractic including applied kinesiology, acupressure therapy and nutritional support. She takes time with each patient, explains everything to you and makes sure you are taken care of and treated with dignity. I believe it is imperative to treat the whole person and not just the symptom.

Dr. Repetto is a true healer and becoming her patient was one of the most important and most intelligent things I have done for myself. If you want to find a doctor to work with you, to help yourself feel better and improve your overall wellbeing, then you must call Dr. Repetto and set up an appointment to see her.

Anika C.

 Vittoria is concise, and through. Her authoritative manner and expert skill combined with warmth and humor made for a wonderful experience. Her offices are professional and comfortable. She always goes the extra mile suggesting any necessary nutritional supplements, as well as updating you regularly with the latest articles, or papers pertinent to the health/body issue you present her with.

Lucia Rossman, Owner, Digi Dog Design

 I strongly recommend Dr. Repetto. She is a great chiropractor and applied kinesiologist and has a gift for finding the cause of problems and how to fix them quickly and efficiently. She is also a great nutritional/lifestyle coach whose guidance has definitely helped my overall well being.

Thoughts of a NYC Chiropractor on Potassium Iodide vs Radiation Poisoning & Iodine in General

Here’s a great article : How to protect yourself from radiation by Hyla Cass M.D. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/hyla-cass-md/radiation-risks-and-prote_b_836363.html
Now much radiation the west coast and the east coast will get depends on what reactor explores, how much fail out there is and how the  weather (wind, rain) will carry this radiation around the globe.  But I thought that I should point some things out about KI and iodine in general.

One needs to know that large amts. of (mgs) potassium iodide (most vitamin companies use 75 mcg – 150 mcg of KI for their iodine source) may be hurtful to people w/ skin disorders like dermatitis herpetiformis or urticaria vasculitis or people taking synthyroid (or like medications) or have an auto-immune thyroid problem or pregrant women and infants;  these people should consult their doctor before starting .

Side effects of taking KI are nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, or stomach pain; mild skin rash; or
a metallic taste in the mouth.

In my opinion the American diet is low on iodine and I fear that it will become more so as we limit our intake of salt ( iodized salt). Did you know that Pasteurization destroys approximately 20% of the Iodine content of pasteurized foods.  Did you know that potassium iodate, a dough conditioner which added 150 mcg of iodide per slice, .was replaced in the 1970’s w/ bromine (iodine antagonist and goitrogenic substance)

Did you know that the Japanese population consumes 13.8mg of iodine/day and has very low cases of breast cancer, thyroid problems and low cases of every type of cancer except stomach cancer.

So I do advise people to take in more iodine in their diets -sea veggies such as Kelp, Dulse, Kombu, Arame, Wakame, Hijike, Norimiso and seafood are great sources of iodine as well as egg yolks (Attention all you egg white fans).

And for more help vs radiation, know that Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, can help protect body tissues. And also reishi and cordyceps mushrooms  and antioxidantscan help the body defend itself from radiation damage.

For my thoughts on iodized sea salt vs iodized table salt, please read: https://drvittoriarepetto.wordpress.com/2010/03/31/to-salt-or-not-to-salt-that-is-the-question/
