      NeurOntogenics® Neuromotor Deprograming - Frequently Asked Questions


I was told that muscle weakness and imbalance is causing my problem, and that I need to work out to strengthen them, isn't that true?

Answer: To answer that question, we first need to understand what is meant by weak muscles. After an injury, the body purposely and intelligently adapts, tightening some muscles loosening others to protect the injured area while altering posture throughout the body to compensate. If tested, muscles that are part of this adaptation pattern may be weak, or show other abnormalities. Because those muscles have been purposefully altered by the brain, it is more appropriate refer to them as inhibited. Proper treatment will immediately turn those muscles back on, often removing the pain and weak feeling that went along with the weakness.

That said, I do recommend a good strength training program, once the balance has been restored, from the top down.

Exercise, stretching, or other activity does not specifically reverse muscle inhibition.                                      RETURN TO TOP


My doctor told me I have arthritis, can NeurOntogenics® NhD  help?

Most named conditions like arthritis, bursitis, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, shin splints and tendinitis don’t really tell us specifically what is going on or what has caused it.  One thing we know for sure however, is that all of them will have muscle inhibition associated with them.  Even the presence of abnormalities on x-ray in a conditions like arthritis is not necessarily a life sentence of pain.  Pain cannot be diagnosed or predicted by x-rays or MRIs. Any problem in a joint will be associated with  imbalances in the muscles that support had move that joint. Moving a joint with imbalance muscles is like driving a car that is out of alignment.  The tires (joints) will wear unevenly. Treatment that restores muscle balance will usually help any of those conditions.

In addition, getting digestion and pH corrected with Q4D Nutrition may help to restore the joints or at least prevent more bone deposition in the wrong places.


How does altered muscle function cause problems?

Answer: several ways.  When muscles are unbalanced, a single muscle are part of a muscle may end up doing the work that should be done by several muscles in combination.  Muscles may also end up fighting each other.  If you bend your knee for instance, the muscles on the front of your leg need to relax to allow the muscles in the back of your leg to work. This imbalance may be causing pain or predisposing you to repetitive stress syndromes. You may be familiar with how your tires wire when your front-end is out of alignment. This is similar to what happens in joints when there is muscle imbalance. The altered muscle function changes joint function, causing pain and even arthritis.  Even pains that we do not think of as related to muscles such as TMJ pain, headaches or carpal tunnel syndrome often have a muscular component to them.               RETURN TO TOP


I don't remember injuring myself, why would I have muscle problems?

Answer: Without our conscious realization, whenever we injure ourselves, or even go through stressful circumstances, our brains may memorize our reactions to those circumstances. If you sprain your ankle, you shift your posture changing muscle function throughout your body.  As you walk around like this for several days, your brain is learning these new muscle patterns and they may not be automatically forgotten.  This may not cause you symptoms for years, but in combination with other memorized stress reactions and current conditions, symptoms may emerge without having a new injury.


How can I tell if inhibition is the cause of my problem?

Answer: Every body pain has muscle alteration and inhibition associated with it, that is automatic.  Muscle changes may be the cause, may be making the pain worse, or perpetuating the pain. The only way to find out to what extent these muscle changes are causing your symptoms is a trial using methods that address and remove muscle adaptation.                                                                                    RETURN TO TOP


How do you treat muscles that are weak by habit? Doesn't it take a lot of retraining to change a habit?

Answer: No! Strange as it sounds, habits can change immediately! The most recent research shows that when habitual memories are activated, it is like taking a book from the library.  If you don't return it it's not there anymore. NeurOntogenics® is the method of treatment that systematically takes advantage of this quirk of the brain, finding, Targeting and preventing the re-storage of unproductive habits of posture and muscle inhibition that are the true cause of much of the pain and dysfunction we suffer from.


How do these treatments change habits?

Answer: If attention is brought to habitual muscle dysfunction, precise application of natural therapies such as joint manipulation, acupressure (generally using laser or microcurrent) or myofascial treatment, break the larger pattern of dysfunction (maladaptation) that was related to that muscle, leaving a less adapted, thus healthier functional capacity.                                                                         RETURN TO TOP


How many treatments does it take to restore proper muscular function?

Answer: That depends on many factors.  If you were a rodeo cowboy or had had several major skiing accidents or surgeries, you may have many layers of adaptations that need to be addressed.  Knees and ankles, because of their limited range of motion tend to require less treatment than shoulders or necks which have a wide arc of movement.  So treatment of a single painful area or joint may take only two or three treatments, but more complicated areas may take 6-8 per area.  If NeurOntogenics® treatment will help, some results are usually noticed in 1-2 visits.


So I get this treatment and my muscles are restored.  How often do I have to repeat the treatment?

Answer: Treatment may not need to be repeated again for the same area. If there is no underlying problem with the ligaments, joints, bones or nerves the body will have no reason to alter muscle function again. The effects of treatment tend to be permanent.


So I don't need to exercise at all?

Answer: Exercise is still good and useful for many reasons, but it works better after muscle function is restored and exercise will not restore muscle function by itself. If your problem has been long term or severe, therapeutic exercise may still be necessary.  If your muscles are working properly, the exercise itself will be more pleasurable for you.    RETURN TO TOP


Is NeurOntogenics® Neurohistorical Deprograming the only treatment I need?

Answer: Sometimes.  NeurOntogenics® Neuromotor Deprograming is holistic in nature, and overlaps with treatments that you might receive from acupuncturists, massage therapists and physical therapists. Even the emotional stress and nutritional components may be addressed.  But that doesn’t mean that NhD will address everything you can receive from any other therapy.  Additionally, some conditions will require medical care or surgery. The treatment that you receive in NeurOntogenics® NhD, even when it overlaps with other areas, is most targeted to how memory and learning has created habits that keep us in pain and dysfunction.


I generally feel pretty good and I do not have any problems participating in my sport. Can NeurOntogenics® NhD be beneficial for me?

Answer: It could definitely be helpful. Without exception, we all suffer from muscle imbalances left over from past adaptation.  These imbalances may be detracting from your performance or making you more susceptible to future injury. Even if you do not have any symptoms (and many times we do have minor symptoms that we ignore or forget about) in many cases there is still muscle imbalance due to past adaptation. NeurOntogenics® NhD offers a  Sport-Specific Evaluation that evaluates the muscles and postures used most in your sport.                                                                               RETURN TO TOP
