Neurokinetic Therapy

NKT stands for Neurokinetic Therapy. Therapists use this assessment technique to find the root cause of a patient’s neuroscience, and functional anatomy (neurobiomechanics). 

Providers use certain protocols to determine which muscles are inhibited and which muscles are compensating for them. Using this information, they can then create a corrective exercise regimen focusing on proper movement patterns and reprogram the motor control center.

NKT can be used to assess and treat a variety of conditions. These include joint pain, neck or back pain, gait dysfunction, pre or post-surgical patients, some vestibular cases, hyoid dysfunction, TMJ, scars, post- cesarean section and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Instead of chasing symptoms, therapists can use NKT to find more direct causes of pain, tightness, or weakness. However, the patient still needs to perform their corrective exercises to allow their body to accept the changes. This will eventually override the dysfunction and create a new, functional movement pattern.

This therapy is uniquely focused on the restoration of specific conditions after STEM Cell, PRP, and Medical Procedures by identifying and evaluating soft tissue structures involved with pain to help guide recovery.  This technique is the perfect adjunct to medical therapy and rehabilitation. Movement patterns may be faulty and cause pain due to imbalance, overuse, or overloading of tissues. 

This specific type of restorative bodywork is the perfect adjunct to your rehab and recovery.
