NeuroKinetic Therapy®

Do you have recurring pain that’s affecting your quality of life? Are pain and stiffness preventing you from engaging in your favorite sports or other activities? Maybe you’ve had some success at other chiropractic offices or with physical therapy but haven’t entirely resolved your issue. If you aren’t experiencing the relief you want, we have a fantastic solution with NKT.

This therapy addresses the cause of pain. The goal of this natural and powerful modality is correcting learned movements and muscle functions within the body that can contribute to poor posture, joint tenderness and muscular pain.

Conditions NKT Can Help

Here are some of the many conditions that NKT can effectively address:

  • Athletic injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Whiplash

What to Expect

Dr. Shannon will talk with you about your particular complaint and what aggravates it. She’ll ask you about therapies you’ve done, what your lifestyle is like, what your exercise routine is like and what your goals are. You’ll be given range of motion and muscle testing.

Depending on what’s going on and what you feel, she will concentrate on a specific area to determine what needs to be released or activated. “I will have the patient do certain activities to activate an area and then retest from there,” says Dr. Shannon.

“I provide a very specific protocol of muscle tests to determine what the pattern is and what the relationship is between muscle A and muscle B. Then, I determine which muscle is overworking versus underworking. It’s not about strong or weak but how healthy that connection is between brain and muscle,” adds Dr. Shannon.

A Patient-Driven Protocol

She will design a patient-specific protocol and exercises are given out and done outside the office. The exercises are designed to reinforce the patterns that need to be corrected. The fact that NKT is more of a specialized patient-driven technique makes it different from others. It also yields longer-lasting results.
