NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT)
Are you tired of constantly being uncomfortable due to muscle pain? Do you feel like you are in an endless cycle of injury after injury? Our goal is to help you treat the cause of the pain and not just the symptoms. One method of treatment that Boulder Sports Clinic provides is NKT Therapy.
NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) consists of a series of specific muscle tests in order to determine muscle compensation patterns specific to each individual. Muscles that become painful are often tight from being overworked due to under-utilized muscles elsewhere. With the use of NKT Therapy, new motor programs are established with the use of soft tissue releases and corrective exercises to combat chronically tight muscles and lingering pain. Kinetic Therapy is an innovative approach to manually testing the muscles throughout the pain points and the linked areas of the body.
What to expect with NKT Therapy...
At Boulder Sports Clinic, our providers will take you through a variety of muscle tests throughout the entire body with Kinetic Therapy. Light pressure is applied to the body, in order to evaluate the strength or weakness of each muscle. Revealing an inhibited muscle throughout the entire kinetic chain, will help to reveal the source of injury and the compensation mechanism responsible for pain. Patients can also expect to receive specific home exercises in order to reprogram faulty movement patterns following a NeuroKinetic Therapy session.
When you decide to pursue NKT Therapy, you are taking one step closer to getting your life back and to living pain free. We look forward to not only helping you on your journey to recovery, but we hope that through the process you will learn, and you feel more aware of your body and the needs that it has.
