So, what in the world is MyoKinesthetic System Therapy (MyoK) Anyway?
In short, it is a non-invasive way to correct the “cause and compensation” merry-go-round that many of us find ourselves on. We fall and hurt ourselves and wait until it “goes away”. Hint: nothing really goes away, it just changes, so the pain will pop up somewhere else in a more chronic fashion – a stiff neck becomes a loss of shoulder range of motion. Hip stiffness becomes knee pain or plantar fasciitis. A stiff or painful low back becomes sciatica.
With the MyoKinesthetic System, we are trying to find the cause and clear it so all the compensations will clear away, too. This is not Chiropractic. At no time do we manipulate or "pop" bones. Instead, we go to work on the muscles.
We stimulate each muscle along one nerve pathway. Deep, light, with cross-friction, or something else, whatever way to generate the stimulation is fine. We can treat the origin, insertion, belly, or all three, all will work because we're looking for the nerve endings within the muscles to send a signal to the brain that say's "there's a change happening here."
The brain receives this information and makes changes to it. This means that by working on the “cause” pathway, the brain automatically fixes the “compensation” pathway. We’ve used “muscle memory” to our advantage: more balanced, greater range of motion and a decrease in pain that lasts.
There is simply nothing else like it. The MyoKinesthetic System is not a repackaged technique. It is the result of more than 20 years of hands-on research and development.
The difference is in the treatment: Which muscles do we treat together to clear the entire peripheral nervous system pathway. By focusing on the nervous system while working on the muscular system, the MYK System:
Restores movement and function
Indeed, the real beauty of the MYK System is that it works quickly. You should see results almost immediately from just one 15-minute session.
