NeuroKinetic Therapy® (NKT) corrective movement system is a sophisticated bodywork modality that can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for low back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, shoulder problems, and other injuries.
NKT is an excellent and powerful adjunct to Chiropractic care. It is based on the science of motor control theory, which states that the motor control center in the brain stores all the movement and coordination patterns of the body. It not only creates healthy movement patterns (such as when a baby learns to stand), but also substitute movement patterns when we are injured.
For example, if you sprain your left ankle, your brain will shift weight off of that injury to the other foot. This will affect how the rest of your body – your knees, hips, core, neck, shoulders – move as you walk. The injured ankle may eventually feel better, but may still remain unstable, so your brain and body will hold on to those other “protective patterns”. Then, “for no reason” weeks, months, or even years later, you develop pain, strain, or inflammation elsewhere.
The usual approach is to try to strengthen, stretch, or otherwise “fix” the painful area, when in reality it has been overstressed by the ankle injury not healing correctly or working properly. The NeuroKinetic Therapy approach gives us a way to test these functional relationships and identify the underlying problem. Along with specific Chiropractic adjustments and corrective exercises, your nervous system can re-learn proper movement and function so you can heal.
We have found this approach to be particularly helpful for individuals with
Even with chronic pain and injuries, by understanding your unique health history we can start to “peel the onion” to get to the source of the problem. As long as you are alive, you have the ability to heal!

I found Dr. Morrone to be very pleasant and I find her approach refreshing. Other chiropractors I have visited basically give you an adjustment without discussing the neurological connections. Looking forward to working with her and also to see how she may be able to help my daughter.
