Taking Neuro-Kinetic Therapy Seminar – Sept. 12nd & 13th

Neuro-Kinetic Therapy takes off from Applied Kinesiology’s Muscle Testing by looking at how the body compensates for injuries.
David Weinstock , the founder of Neuro_kinetic Therapy, using muscle testing found that when a patient could test strong in an initial muscle test but then tested weak immediately after the patient used some other muscle.
Weinstock found that even after the patient’s body should have healed in the area of the past trauma, the patient’s was inhibiting certain muscles and forcing other muscles to work overtime to compensate for those inhibited muscles. The body had created compensation patterns and these were being stored in the cerebellum – which serves as the control center for motor skills.
In Neuro-kinetic therapy, the compensating muscle and the weak muscle are worked on. The compensating muscle  is relaxed and then the weak muscle is re-tested. The body tries to active the compensating muscle but since it is now relaxed, the body now has to use the correct one.
The formerly weak muscle now has an uninhibited working connection to the cerebellum and falls out of the learned compensating mode
I look forward to adding and perfecting this technique in order to serve my patients better.

Knee Feels Weak Despite Exercise: Reactive Muscles and How Applied Kinesiology & NeuroKinetic Therapy Can Help

You have been working out regularly but your rt. knee feels weak and tired after walking a few blocks and it feels like your rt. knee is moving inward as you extend it.

You exercise the quadriceps more and stretch the adductor muscle but it does not help.

So what is happening?

A muscle, in this case an adductor muscle, may be shutting off your quadriceps causing your leg to rotate inwards and your quadriceps to feel weak.

In applied kinesiology, we call this a reactive muscle and it can happen in any part of the body.

What is need is to neutralize the over-active adductor muscles.

In applied kinesiology & neurokinetic therapy, we first test  the weak and suspected reactive muscle.  Therapy localization is a diagnostic procedure where the patient touches the suspected reactive muscle and we use muscle testing to see if the once weak muscle now tests strong.

We then correct the over-active muscle spindle in the middle of the muscle or the golgi tendons at the origin & insertion of the muscle.
