The basic certification includes the 15 hour Level One Course in NeuroKinetic Therapy™ corrective movement system. In addition the student must present three written case studies explaining how they used NKT™ in their sessions and must either perform an NKT™ session in person on an approved Certifier, or perform an NKT™ session via Skype. You must practice for at least a month before doing Level 2 and Level 3. The cost of this half hour session is $70. This session is used to evaluate the proficiency and knowledge of the student.
When taking a Level 2 or 3 class, please be certified one month before the start of class if possible. We understand sometimes that is not possible.
The 15 hour Level Two Course, plus three case studies and a supervised NKT™ session, advances the student to the next level of certification.
The 15 hour Level Three Course, plus three case studies and a supervised NKT™ session, advances the student to the next level of certification.
Sample case study
Patient presented with right sided Lower Back/SI Joint Pain With the patient in a prone position, I had him arch his lower back and he had pain in his right SI region. He did not have pain when he flattened his lower back. I had him arch his lower back to initiate the NKT™ protocol. Then I manual muscle tested his transversus abdominus (TVA) and it tested weak. I therapy localized over the right SI region and when I re tested his TVA, it got strong. I performed an SI joint gapping maneuver on the right SI joint and then had him arch his lower back followed by re-testing his TVA. It stayed strong. I sent him home with a home SI gapping maneuver with his belt and taught him TVA exercises. I advised him to perform the gapping for 30-60 seconds and perform 30 TVA exercise repetitions (2x/day).
