Neurokinetic Therapy

At In Motion MFR, we utilize methods like myofascial release and neurokinetic therapy to balance the systems of your body.

NeuroKinetic Therapy® is a sophisticated bodywork technique that can be used not only to rehabilitate acute and chronic low back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain but also is used to assess and gauge where the patient currently is with their pain.

The NeuroKinetic Therapy™ uses a special type of precise muscle tests that links to the brain and how the brain or specifically the Motor Control Center (MCC) in the cerebellum, sends signals to your muscles so they can work effectively. The MCC coordinates all movement patterns in the body and at times those muscle signally can be lost of misaligned.

The Motor Control Center can also be trained and as we develop from children to adults, this area of the brain learns proper movement by trial and error, and eventually the success movements become ingrained, without having “thinking” about it.

Typically, after an injury, the MCC may adapt a painful pattern due to repetitive motion or a sudden accident that it tend “commits” to memory forever unless you can “reprogram” it, so to speak. A good example is a sudden trauma to the head in which the posterior neck muscles brace for for impact. This pattern can endure causing a lot of strain and in most cases, acute pain for years to come.

When a practitioner who is skilled in NeuroKinetic Therapy™ first tests the muscles for weakness or strain, and then open MCC to new learning, which is how the rehabilitation process starts. After the balance is restored, the MCC is “reprogrammed” and recognizes muscles helping them to follow their initial healthy patterns. To complete the reprogramming, specific rehab exercises are assigned to “set” the new functional pattern, releasing pain and strain.
