Neurokinetic Therapy is one of the best assessment tools and rehabilitative techniques. The Neurokinetic Therapy is a thorough examination of the whole body employing a system of precise muscle tests. After the manual muscle testing a certified Neurokinetic therapist is able to identify all the dysfunctions and muscles imbalances, and how they can be related with patient’s pain / injury.
Through Neurokinetic all the dysfunctional patterns can be assessed and “re-programmed” to the Motor Control Center (M.C.C.) being again functional, as a result muscles fire on time and harmonically work all together optimising movement.
Neurokinetic therapy is based on Motor Control Theory. The Motor Control Center is where all movement patterns are coordinated and it’s responsible to generate movement or action. Motor Control is like the “software” of human body. If a dysfunctional pattern is saved in the M.C.C. that stays there until is changed. Change can be achieved by re-educating the brain and the body the functional movement-pattern, and there are two principles playing a major role on that, the first is that the brain learns through failure and the second, is that the brain learns through repetition.
