By understanding the cause of this, specific to you, we can re-establish quality movement allowing you to be pain-free and moving effectively.
If you are someone who is looking to optimise performance, energy, and health NKT is for you. As we can identify movement dysfunction, establish the cause, and reset this, allowing you to move more efficiently and effectively.
How does it all work?
We get a background on your health, through effective questioning. Establish why you have pain, whether through accident or otherwise, assess the local area, then go wider to see other influences on your site of pain. We test through muscle testing techniques unique to NKT to understand the relationship between muscles and other body parts
For A Full Understanding OF NKT You Can See More Information Below:
Neurokinetic Therapy (often called NKT) is a type of natural therapeutic system that has the goal of correcting learned movements and muscle functions within the body that can contribute to poor posture, joint tenderness, and muscular pain. Considered to be a healing “bodywork modality,” similar to massage therapy or chiropractic adjustments, for example, NKT is often used in rehabilitative settings to treat injuries and chronic pain.
The NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system was first created by David Weinstock in the mid-1980s. He created this unique system of precise muscle tests and adjustments to help correct muscle and movement memories that were stored in the brain region that’s responsible for learned motor control.
What Is Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), and How Does It Work?
NKT is based on observations that certain body parts compensate for other weaker body parts. Essentially muscles or tissue can become weak and “shut down” following injury, while others become forced to work overtime and make up for their shortcomings. This concept is known as the body’s “muscle compensation pattern.” These patterns are observed in people experiencing noticeable weakness and pain, but also often appear to some degree in those who are generally healthy and strong.
NKT is based on a chiropractic technique called Applied Kinesiology, which uses touch and adjustments to help the body heal itself. Prior to using any Applied Kinesiology technique, a practitioner must first test their client’s reaction to a type of movement, stance, pressure or substance in order to see how they react, in order to observe their weaknesses.
The cerebellum is sometimes referred to as “the body’s control center for all motor skills” (in NKT, it’s often called the Motor Control Center or MCC). It plays a crucial role in helping us to develop into fully functioning adults who can perform many movements automatically (such as grabbing, walking, bending or bringing things towards our body) without much conscious thought. The cerebellum is connected to all muscles via the somatic nervous system, which is a series of nerve channels that bring chemical messages throughout your body related to your senses, location in space and movements. Although memories stored in the cerebellum allow us to do many tasks subconsciously and automatically, we still must learn these behaviors and movements through trial and error. Babies and children slowly develop muscle memories as they get older, and the cerebellum (in conjunction with other parts of your brain) then stores these memories like a computer, so that eventually we can perform them on “autopilot.”
