New Patient Testimonial for a NYC Chiropractor/Applied Kinesiologist

The following was posted the early March by a patient of mine, Cheryl S. at a private website and she gave me permission to repost it.

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.

Knee Feels Weak Despite Exercise: Reactive Muscles and How Applied Kinesiology & NeuroKinetic Therapy Can Help

You have been working out regularly but your rt. knee feels weak and tired after walking a few blocks and it feels like your rt. knee is moving inward as you extend it.

You exercise the quadriceps more and stretch the adductor muscle but it does not help.

So what is happening?

A muscle, in this case an adductor muscle, may be shutting off your quadriceps causing your leg to rotate inwards and your quadriceps to feel weak.

In applied kinesiology, we call this a reactive muscle and it can happen in any part of the body.

What is need is to neutralize the over-active adductor muscles.

In applied kinesiology & neurokinetic therapy, we first test  the weak and suspected reactive muscle.  Therapy localization is a diagnostic procedure where the patient touches the suspected reactive muscle and we use muscle testing to see if the once weak muscle now tests strong.

We then correct the over-active muscle spindle in the middle of the muscle or the golgi tendons at the origin & insertion of the muscle.
