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.
