NeuroKinetic Therapy is a powerful adjunct to your practice. NKT is both an assessment and treatment technique. NKT utilizes manual muscle testing to assess if a muscle is firing properly by itself or in coordination with other muscles. The NKT protocol allows the practitioner to address the motor control center in the cerebellum which coordinates and stores all movement programs. When a muscle test fails the motor control center is opened to new learning.
The NKT protocol actually re-programs the dysfunctional routines stored in the motor control center. This allows you the practitioner to treat the cause of dysfunction instead of the symptoms. This use of manual muscle testing is combined with whatever release technique you already employ. The NKT protocol allows you to become a true somatic detective.
NKT has been my missing link to patient care. I am physical therapist with 22 years of experience in manual therapy and have always searched for new ideas and techniques to help my patients. My personal goal has always been to be in the top 5% of my field and be the ‘go to person.’ I had the great fortune to come across NKT about one year ago and I could not be more excited. The best part about NKT is that it seamlessly fits into the techniques I am already using. I am able to use NKT as a map to determine where to start treating, and it enables me to look at the entire body as a functional unit.
David’s passion for his work is contagious and has motivated me to continue learning and is bringing me closer to my goal.
