NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is an advanced diagnostic tool and treatment approach to the body. Through the use of manual muscle testing, NKT detects compensation patterns in the body and discovers which muscle groups are firing properly and which ones are not.
When we have muscle groups or muscle fibers that are not firing properly, other parts of the body grip to compensate. Although this is the body’s response to maintain functionality, it soon leads to tight muscles, joints, fascia, and eventually pain. NeuroKinetic Therapy assess and treats this.
All the movement patterns we do are stored in the motor control center of the brain. The motor control center is located in the cerebellum. Studies have shown that the motor control center learns through failure. When a muscle tests weak or inhibited, the motor control center lights up and takes note. NeuroKinetic Therapy determines why that particular muscle is testing inhibited and what is causing it to do so. Once corrected, a new neural pathway has been formed and the brain is now learning a healthier, more correct way to move.
At the end of every NKT session, specific exercises are prescribed to help reinforce the new movement pattern. These exercises are paramount for the complete healing and removal of discomfort and pain.
