Dr. Trennoche,
In addition to having been a cutting surgeon I have studied and taught
manual therapy techniques with MDs, DOs, Chiros, PTs and lay
practitioners in the US, Canada and Europe. So far none have proclaimed
they have the final solution, at least until now. On the whole, I find
manual therapists to be a humble and caring and never rude. However, I
guess there are exceptions. Are you keeping this method a secret? Why
hasnít anyone else touted it? Has anyone done any clinical studies, even
outcome studies? Why hasnít this spread like wildfire in the Chiro
community? I know Tony Rosner at the Chiropractic Research Foundation
and he has never mentioned it to me. Is there a practitioner of your
techniques of Ďadjustmentí in the Washington, DC area who could show me?
Is she/he as rude and as full of them self as you? I grew up in NY and
can take almost anything.
