Neuro Kinetic Therapy Programs Boca Raton
What is the first thing most people do when they get injured or have a pain in a certain area of the body? They make an appointment to see a doctor. Often, it’s an orthopedist. This doctor will ask where the pain is located, and typically manipulate or palpate around the area that is affected. Usually, the doctor will prescribe pain medications, physical therapy and/or surgery. The problem with this is that the doctors are often guessing at what the problem is. Even if they get MRIs, CAT scans or x-rays, these testing protocols are not always accurate and are often misleading. No one wants to have unnecessary surgery!
In this new era of high technology and modern times, there are more effective ways to help people return to an active lifestyle or exercise without surgery or the standard physical therapy programs. There is a form of treatment and assessment called NKT (Neuro-Kinetic Therapy). It is a revolutionary protocol that helps the practitioner identify the root cause of the pain/problem. NKT is a very unique assessment. It is the gold standard for treating people with injuries, pain, and discomfort when they move.
What is NKT?
Neuro-Kinetic Therapy is a revolutionary new type of testing that identifies the root cause(s) of pain. When we get injured, the MCC (Motor Control Center) in the brain “likes” to remember the faulty movement pattern. This pattern is called compensation. Compensation alters movement, which then creates an imbalance. The NKT protocol reestablishes the correct motor control pattern in the brain, thus restoring proper movement.
NKT practitioners run a series of manual tests that identify muscles that are either overactive and/or underactive. Then, using the NKT protocol, the muscle imbalance is reprogrammed to its normal proper function. The practitioner also assigns re-patterning exercises that help balance, restore function and maintain proper movement patterns. NKT offers faster, longer-lasting results for a wider variety of conditions than most other treatments.
Benefits Of Neuro-Kinetic Therapy:
- Finds the root cause of the problem.
- Proper exercises are used & given to correct the problem
- Restores pain-free function to the area.
Neuro-Kinetic Therapy Is Good For Anyone:
- Who feels pain during movement
- Who wants to move more efficiently
- Active individuals who are still playing sports
