Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT) is an assessment and treatment tool that uses muscles testing to identify compensatory strategies and dysfunctional movement patterns. Pain or injury can cause the body to change the way it moves to protect the affected area. This new dysfunctional movement pattern is stored in the brain in the motor control center in the cerebellum. Dysfunctional movement patterns can lead to movement asymmetries or increased stress on different areas of the body causing pain and functional limitation. NKT helps us to find the root cause of these dysfunctional movements and allows us restore symmetry and homeostasis to the body, eliminating pain, improving exercise effectiveness and maximizing movement efficiency.
