All of the injuries that my body has sustained playing hockey, soccer, basketball, and two car accidents, added up to where it hurt to do most things.


Thanks to Dr. LaPierre and Matrix Repatterning: 

  • The numbness in my legs has disappeared

  • I now walk differently and feel energized with more power in my legs

  • It doesn't hurt anymore when I get up out of a chair

  • I can go up the stairs with ease

  • I sleep more soundly

  • I can squat without having to moan and groan about painful knees


Thank you Dr. Phil!
