What is NeuroKinetic Therapy and how does it work?
NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is an application of Motor Control Theory, neuroscience, and functional anatomy (neurobiomechanics) that will helps unravel the cause of faulty movement patterns in the brain’s Motor Control Center.
NKT identifies muscle imbalances by using unique protocols to determine what muscles are inhibited and what muscles are compensating for them, thereby allowing the therapist to utilize specific treatments and corrective exercise techniques to restore proper movement patterns and reprogram the motor control center.
This therapy approach goes deeper than treating symptoms. It addresses the cause of the problem so symptoms do not return.
Where will my the therapy session take place?
Your therapy session will take place in a room inside a PT office, using a therapy table with no linen. This is NOT a spa-like setting for massage.
What should I wear?
All therapeutic techniques will be performed with the client fully dressed. Wear loose or elastic clothing such as exercise clothing to allow better mobility during neuromuscular stretching.
Are there different kinds of applications?
There are several types of techniques that can be applied: myofascial release, compression, stretching, posture and movement re-education, sometimes thera-gun, laser wand, and diverse tools.
How will I feel after the therapy session?
Most people feel released of tension and joints move more freely. Some experience a feeling of being liberated from long-term aches and pains.
What are the benefits of this kind of therapy?
It will address your muscular imbalances and treat the muscular compensations in view of fixing the sourse of the pain. It releases chronic muscular tension and pain, increase joint mobility, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture.
Are there any medical conditions that would make this therapy inadvisable?
Yes. If you had a, imaging test diagnosis related to your pain or injury, please bring the written rapport with you. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
