Balance Technique

Get Ready For A Change In Your Health

What is NBT?

Neuromuscular Balance Technique is an integrated system combining many different elements to create stability and improve performance in the human body. NBT is used to analyze and predict injuries by examining and identifying instabilities in the body, which lead to injuries and poor function. NBT allows for rapid correction of instabilities resulting in improved function, reduced pain, and higher performance long term.

How Does It Work?

The NBT practitioner will test the body analyzing each muscle and joint to find instabilities and muscles that are aberrant or inhibited. The practitioner will then neurologically reset the muscles and realign the joints to restore function to the human body. The treatment will include structural, nutritional, and emotional balancing of the body in order to optimize function. The results are long-term pain reduction and optimum function and performance.

Neuromuscular Balance Technique is Based on Science

  • When a muscle is overloaded beyond its ability to sustain the load, one of two things happen. The muscle fibers tear, and the nervous system inhibits the power, much like a circuit breaker in an electrical circuit. This is done to protect the muscle from more severe injury.

  • If the inhibited muscle is loaded again during physical activity, it will not contract appropriately to support the force applied and will be weak. If the muscle continues to be stressed, the body will create pain to avoid more damage.

  • Once a muscle is inhibited, the central nervous system develops an adaptive strategy to use other muscles or tissues to take on more load. This leads to adaptive movement patterns and is called “recruitment” or “adaptation.” The adapted tissue becomes the next site of injury, and the injury/adaptation cycle continues.

  • Eventually, there will be no muscles in an area to adapt. This places more stress on the ligaments and connective tissues, breaking down more rapidly. It leads to degenerative changes in the joint.

  • Functional testing of isolated muscles defines positions of instability.

  • Isolated muscle weakness leads to joint instability and restricted range of motion. The body will not allow motion to stabilize.

  • Muscle tightness restricts motion and is a symptom of neurological inhibition of the antagonist’s muscles.

  • Flexibility therapies increase range of motion but do nothing to improve stability. This can lead to further injury.
