    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
    hasn’t anyone else touted it? Has anyone done any clinical studies, even
    outcome studies? Why hasn’t 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 ‘adjustment’ 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.
