Developed by David Weinstock, NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system, is a sophisticated assessment and treatment modality that addresses the causes of dysfunctional movement/coordination problems at their root in the motor control center in the cerebellum.
Manual muscle testing is employed to assess whether or not a muscle is strong/ facilitated or weak/inhibited. When a muscle tests weak the motor control center perceives this as a failure and is opened to new learning. This presents an opportunity to use the NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system protocol of test-release-retest to reprogram the motor control center. Correcting these dysfunctional movement patterns is an essential component of rehabilitative therapy.
NKT allows the clinician to more specifically assess each patient and assign a home exercise program that targets the exact source of imbalance and correct the issue is efficiently. This specificity is a big part of the unparalleled success Redden Total Therapy is providing for patients daily.
