NeuroKinetic Therapy® (NKT)
What Is NKT?
A great amount of my continued professional development has centred around rehabilitation. I am passionate about teaching you how to move confidently again after injury. Injury can be debilitating and often our response is to stop moving altogether leading to more stiffness and pain.
My latest adventure is into the fascinating world of NeuroKinetic Therapy® (NKT) which is a tool used to assess dysfunctional movement patterns and reprogram the motor control centre. Often after an injury or because of poor movement or posture, a compensatory pattern occurs. This is when muscles or ligaments overwork and others underwork . This can create tightness, inhibition and pain. Muscles are tested using the NKT protocol to determine which is the case and then the brain is reprogrammed with a short period of treatment and simple exercises that can be performed at home.
