Revue de presse

“Among the numerous volumes of so-called therapeutic manuals in the field of neuromuscular assessment and treatment, few truly meet the dual standard of providing skill enhancement while resting on a firm scientific foundation. David Weinstock’s NeuroKinetic Therapy not only meets this standard but raises it to a new level. Combining anatomical detail with superb illustrations and photos, the book carefully guides the practitioner in learning this subtle but very powerful form of therapy.… What a joy it is to move away from repetitive treatment to truly unwind the effects of injury, stress, and poor posture in our patients.”
—Steven Katz, DC, Katz Chiropractic, Mill Valley, California

“David Weinstock’s book enables both beginning and experienced manual therapists to expand on their assessment skills and to determine their subsequent treatment strategy. This extremely organized book filled with beautiful photos and illustrations helps to guide practitioners through a more specific and meaningful approach to manual muscle testing. Weinstock brings together his incredible breadth of knowledge and experience in neuromuscular reeducation and manual therapy in this well-written, easy-to-follow book.”
—Cindy Lewton Dehan, physical therapist, Active Marin Physical Therapy, Larkspur, California

“Finally a manual written in accessible terms with end user results. The photos are clear and concise. Weinstock captures the essence and extreme importance of muscle testing for any physical practice. I have no doubt that this book will become a bible for all types of movement core therapists and educational programs. I have added it to the list of required reading for all students enrolled in our pilates certification programs.”
—Stacy Allegro, director, Fit First Pilates, Corte Madera, California

NeuroKinetic Therapy is one of the best manual therapy instructional manuals available. The layout and photos make it easy to follow and understand. It is a great tool and will be useful in my practice, complimenting my work with chiropractic, Active Release Techniques, and Egoscue exercise.”
—Bruce Rizzo, DC, ART, My Chiro Care, Berkeley, California

“NeuroKinetic Therapy is an invaluable tool that will greatly enhance a personal trainer’s repertoire and level of expertise. Clients often come to trainers with old injuries that have subsequently created compensatory patterns or muscular imbalances. NeuroKinetic Therapy provides detailed instructions for helping clients regain the muscular control and balance to perform to their potential. Easy to follow and understand, the book shows the trainer how to accurately and effectively assess and test clients. The book’s photographs allow the trainer to know precisely where to place pressure and how the client needs to be positioned so that the muscle test is effective. This manual is a great compliment to any trainer’s library.”
—David Phillips, CES, NASM certified personal trainer, Fit Bridge, Mill Valley, California

“Muscle testing is used in many disciplines but there has not been consistency in how it is performed. In his new book NeuroKinetic Therapy, David Weinstock clearly demonstrates this technique in a succinct and thorough manner. He covers testing of the individual muscles with clear images, including their anatomical origin, insertion, and actions. This book should be a part of any soft tissue specialist’s library.”
— Douglas Kyle, DC, DABCO, ART, Marin Spine and Sport, Corte Madera, California

NeuroKinetic Therapy clearly and thoroughly outlines muscle testing techniques along with related anatomy, but it is its use with the NeuroKinetic Therapy protocol that makes it a step up from massage and strengthening models more traditionally applied. I defer to David for those difficult to unravel pain patterns, both professionally and personally, and always with success.”
—Caryl Sircus, physical therapist, Aquatic Therapy Associates, San Rafael, California

“Both concise and clear, this book breathes rehabilitation and therapeutic alignment. For a yoga instructor it provides a deeper skill set and knowledgeable platform from which to work and teach. It can greatly assist your students’ structural integrity as well as provide the capacity to heal any trauma that may be restricting the full range of motion or causing pain. This book is a treasure!”
—James Higgins, yoga instructor, Yoga Studio, Mill Valley, California

Présentation de l'éditeur

NeuroKinetic Therapy is based on the premise that when an injury has occurred, certain muscles shut down or become inhibited, forcing other muscles to become overworked. This compensation pattern can create pain or tightness. By applying light pressure that the client then resists, the practitioner can evaluate the strength or weakness of each muscle, revealing the sources of injury and retraining the client’s body to remove the compensation patterns—reprogramming the body at the neural level.This easy-to-follow practitioner’s manual presents a series of muscle tests specially designed to uncover and resolve compensation patterns in the body. Author David Weinstock begins by explaining how this approach stimulates the body and mind to resolve pain. Organized anatomically, each section of the book includes clear photographs demonstrating correct positioning of the muscle accompanied by concise explanations and instructions. Labeled anatomical illustrations appear at the end of each section showing the relationships between the muscles and muscle groups. This essential resource is especially useful for physical therapists, chiropractors, orthopedists, and massage therapists looking for new ways to treat underlying causes of pain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Have for the Rehabilitation Specialist 26 janvier 2010
Par David Priest - Publié sur Amazon.com
David Weinstock nails it with this well thought out, carefully crafted, illustrated guide to one of the most effective manual therapy techniques available today. The illustrations coupled with the muscle testing instructions make this an easy guide for applying NeuroKinetic Therapy. The author also provides descriptions couled with illustrations to the muscles, including origin, insertion, action, antagonists, and synergists. For those who are already familiar with or already use muscle testing, this manual provides a good review of muscle testing, and even shows various tests for the same muscle depending on the action being tested. David also demonstrates how to test a muscle in both a supine and prone position. NeuroKinetic Therapy is an invaluable tool for assisting the practitioner in assessing and treating various debilitating injuries, as well as optimizing athletic performance. Note: NeuroKinetic Therapy is a complex manual therapy technique which is easily explained in this manual. Although the manual is very clear in describing how to apply NKT, I strongly recommend taking the course. As with any complex modality, taking the course will provide the practitioner with a far greater understanding and depth of how and when to apply NKT that the manual simply can't.

Who needs this manual?
Massage Therapists
Physical Therapists
Physiatrists or other Medical Doctors looking for a viable non-surgical option.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Take The NeuroKinetic Therapy Course 13 août 2012
Par Kenneth Hoefs - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book has still black and white pictures of the manual muscle tests that David uses. The book without taking the course is just a manual muscle testing book and does not unleash the healing power of NeuroKinetic Therapy. The book gives you a brief intro to NeuroKinetic Therapy and explains each manual muscle tests for each muscle. Once you take the course the book then becomes a valuable tool to add to your practice. Once you have taken the course, the how and why to perform the manual muscle tests makes sense and the book is priceless. It can help you solve people's musculoskeletal problems that other people could not solve.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Neurokinetic Therapy 8 mars 2010
Par Sandra C. Cobb - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am so happy to have this book. I have several other manual testing books, but none of them is as helpful as NeuroKinetic Therapy. David's concise yet comprehensive style makes this technique so effortless to implement in my work. After almost 30 years of doing therapy, I find the NeuroKinetic approach to be the most powerful tool I can use to effect permanent improvement for my clients. All of my clients want to know why more therapists don't use this technique!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clear, concise, and straightforward 27 février 2010
Par Medical Massage Therapist - Publié sur Amazon.com
I appreciate David's teaching's so much. He's a wonderful teacher. There's not a day I do not incorporate NeuroKinetic Therapy into my rehabilitative practice. With this book, I now have a clear demonstration of his kinesiology style. The photos show easy-to-follow depictions of his muscle testing techniques. Each photo has a concise description of the muscle attachments and actions. As such, this is a perfect gift for a student to aid their training. This is a great reference manual for anyone who wants to learn more about manual muscle testing or for professionals who need a quick NeuroKinetic reference book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Muscle testing book 16 mai 2013
Par Rudy Mueller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A little disappointed, but I think that is because I expected more of the theory of NKT to be laid out in the book. The book is basically a muscle testing guide for every muscle in the body. That being said I was looking for a short cut to learn more about NKT before taking the courses, this helps a bit but not nearly the amount of detail I was hoping for. Looking forward to learning more though from David and his associates at the NKT seminars.
