NeuroKinetic Therapy in Toledo
What is the primary goal of Neurokinetic therapy?
The goal of NKT is to reduce pain and tension in overworked muscles, which become damaged and fatigued due to learned compensation patterns. Soft tissue manipulations can help to stretch painful or tight areas and even correct posture, but in a short period memories stored in the MCC might cause tightness and pain to come back as the “strong muscle” continues to overcompensate for the weaker.
Why have Neurokinetic therapy?
Neurokinetic therapy is often used to help treat patients recovering from accidents, trauma or impact, and athletic injuries. This can include neck strains, whiplash, concussions and spinal problems that cause back pain. Due to compensations/overuse, accidents are commonly tied to headaches/migraines, bulging discs, nerve damage, numbness and trouble sleeping.
