Injury Recall Technique in NYC - Dr. Louis Granirer Holistic Chiropractor
"Injury recall technique can be defined as a simple but effective tool that allows the brain to receive the message that some kind of injury has been 'cleared.' It enables the body to comprehensively heal a previously-injured area and completely restore normal function. When an area of the body is injured, the brain sends signals to the body so it can begin the healing process for that specific area."

With an increase in blood flow, plasma and leukocytes from the blood to the injured area comes inflammatory response. Injury recall treatments may involve, for example, movement of the talus bone which is part of the ankle because the ankle boasts nerve endings known as “proproceptive” types. Proprioceptive nerve endings act as conduit transmitters for information going to the brain concerning the joints and their relative positions to space around them. 

The History of Injury Recall Technique 

This is a treatment technique that is unique to those who utilize Applied Kinesiology, brought to the field by Dr. Wally Schmitt who learned it from podiatrists. What these podiatrists had found was that trauma on or in the body would change the structure of our feet, which would often lead to other problems later in life. Dr. Schmitt expanded on this by finding that through Applied Kinesiology techniques, doctors could identify previous traumas or injuries that are affecting the current health of their patients. 

And while the previous injuries had healed, the compensations the body made during the injury had remained, causing pain or health problems sometimes in the same area of the body but often in seemingly unrelated areas.

Injury recall allows many patients that undergo the technique to hold adjustments longer while healing: 
  • Chronic injuries 
  • Ongoing joint pain 
  • Balance problems 
  • Poor posture 
  • Musculoskeletal problems

Treating Pain with Injury Recall Technique

As covered earlier in this piece, injury recall may involve movement of bones such as the talus, which is part of the ankle, which has different proprioceptive nerve endings. It may also involve movement of the head into extension and flexion, or a visualization technique which tricks the brain into changing its long-held patterns. IRT, as it is known, is effective and relatively easy to perform, resulting in long-standing and permanent effects on the body. 
Many times, patients complaining of pain after certain moments of stress and after an in-depth applied kinesiological analysis of the body, it is often revealed that the brain is still in a “chronic loop” of injury. The brain, in these instances, is not able to neurologically “connect the dots” that the injury should heal completely. When I apply the injury recall technique on patients such as this -- in addition to neurolymphatic reflex work, neurovascular reflex point work and specific gentle adjustments for an entire structure -- most report remarkable improvement over time. 

Faulty neurologic response is corrected with injury recall, allowing patients to “hold” their adjustments longer. Individuals will take diagnostic tests, such as MRIs and X-rays, and they will come back with negative results for any abnormality or injury. These results will come back as such because of the brain and subconscious mind’s “lack of computing” in reporting that these areas are in fact “okay.” In other words, the brain may still send signals to the inured area to keep the pain receptors and sensory nerve endings active though the area is actually healed. 

Taken as a whole, the concept of injury recall erases the neurological memory of past injuries which often interfere with “normalized” healing, allowing for subluxations to return. A deeper neurological therapy is required in order for proper function to be restored and though very simple, often produces a surprisingly strong therapeutic response. 

The technique involves two major steps: 
  • Stimulating the previously injured area, normally with “gentle pinching.” 
  • Immediately applying gentle downward pressure on a bone in the foot – specifically the talus.
