What is NeuroKinetic Therapy?

image1

NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) is an effective assessment and treatment technique that uses functional neurological muscle testing to identify why a muscle is sore and/or tight.  The principle is simple, something is over-active and something is under-active. Find those two things, release the over-active, activate the under-active and things get reset and restored. Pain decreases or disappears and range of motion returns to normal. I combine NKT with other traditional orthopedic tests and assessments to give an extremely thorough and focused assessment and exam of musculoskeletal issues.

I have completed and certified in all 3 levels of NKT and I have assisted in teaching all 3 levels multiple times.  I co-lead the Philadelphia area NKT Study Group with 'Philly's Best Running Coach" John Goldthorp and I am one of the only people on the east coast able to certify practitioners in NKT. 

How do you know that I know what I am doing?

Before I studied Athletic Training I was an athlete, playing almost every sport available at the Fallston Recreation Council before focusing on Football, Ice Hockey, and Lacrosse in High School and Lacrosse in College. While at West Chester University I won the Outstanding Senior Athletic Training Award and Scholarship and was one of the only Athletic Training Students to ever complete 4 years of eligibility in a NCAA sport and possibly the only person ever to compete as a Certified Athletic Trainer my final year when we won the first ever ECAC Men's Lacrosse Championship. In Graduate School at Georgia State I won the Southeastern Athletic Training Association Graduate Scholarship sponsored by the Hughston Clinic and also won a SELC Men's Club Lacrosse Championship for Atlanta Lacrosse Club. 

 

How much is this going to cost me?

I have two degrees, a diploma, multiple certifications, a professional license, and over 25 years of experience working with the best Athletes, Orthopedic Surgeons, Athletic Trainers, Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, and Strength Coaches.I charge a professional fee of $25/15 Minutes of Time.  Typical sessions usually last an hour but I can go as little as 15 minutes or as much as 2 hours depending on the situation.  

So anywhere between $25 - $100 for a visit should accommodate almost any budget. I will not travel to a location for less than an hour guaranteed  plus an additional minimum fee of $25 depending on distance and time so $125 for an in home or office visit.  Unlike others I do not lock you into committing to several visits.  It's all at your own pace.
