Most of the time, IRT needs to be performed only once to eliminate the muscle memory of an injury, even if the injury occurred many years ago. An area can be reinjured and then require additional application of IRT. This can be due to an injury that is still healing, and that gets reinjured during the healing process.
Mild re-injury often occurs often during physical therapy and rehabilitation procedures following serious injury (e.g., fracture, surgery) and the use of IRT (and the Stop Your Pain Now! techniques) usually speeds up the healing process. A recurrence of the need for IRT can also be due to an injury arising from chronic repetitive activity, such as occurs in some occupations.
I teach IRT (and Stop Your Pain Now! techniques) on the video program for clinicians entitled “Injury Recall Technique & Stop Your Pain Now! – A Doctor’s Guide For Treating with Acute & Chronic Pain.” It is available in The Better Health Shoppe.
