Concussion And Neural Disorganization

Concussion Causes Neural Disorganization Plus Related Conditions

A short summery of concussion affects:

Concussion and Cranial Reflexes: There are 9 major cranial reflexes that support cranial bones, brain function and neurology. A major communication junction between right and left hemisphere of the brain is the corpus colosseum. Concussion can and often times impede the transference of brain signal information between these hemispheres. Concussion disrupts and disorganizes neurology full stop.

Concussion and Gait Reflexes: Gait Neuro Reflexes assist the body to move through time and space. These Gait Neuro Reflexes assist in a smooth stride when walking or running. When in sync there is a rhythmic swing and coordination of opposite arms and legs. The Gait Neuro Reflexes do more than this; they assist in the smooth running of all neurological systems of the body including the Immune, Cardiac and Endocrine systems.

Concussion and Lower Back Pain: There are nine different types of back pain I am aware of. With a fall especially from a moving object (horse riding or running e.g.) the person is in what is known as fight/flight. This is a natural survival system to sustain and maintain life. Because of how the muscle system operates throughout the body a twist/rotation occurs to the lumbar spine (L3) when attempting to protect one’s self in a fall. End result lower backache.

Concussion and Reactive Muscle System: The body and muscles operate and function with movement through a Reactive Muscle System. When there is a jamming of cranial bones, this affects the Gait Reflexes. If just one muscle goes into spasm that upsets the whole chain of muscles in that particular system!

Concussion and Sciatica: Sciatica is related to a twisted pelvic bone. There is a particular muscle in this area that squeezes the Sciatica Nerve leaving the person sometimes in severe pain all the way down the leg side carrying the pain. This is very noticeable as the person will demonstrate a limp to the side of pain when walking. The opposite Temporal Bone of the skull is the culprit, something overlooked by many health carers. This Temporal Bone becomes locked up in a backward direction jamming at the Condylar Squamosal Mastoidal Pivot Point where three bones of the skull come together.

Concussion and Immune compromise: Concussion disrupts the Limbic Brain. The Limbic Brain is associated with the five senses; sound, touch, sight, taste and smell. This Limbic Brain is in direct communication with the Immune System. The Immune System is about Digestion, cellular growth and cellular repair plus other important processes. Concussion affects the Limbic Brain directly which then impedes Immune System functionality. Resulting in poor digestion and in some cases poor elimination! Food intolerance and allergies and other digestive disorders are often the result.

Concussion and Cardiac Stress: As there is a back pain directly related to the Cardiac System Neurology, this is important to have this attended to as soon as possible. Unattended this could lead to cardiac complications later on down the track of time.

Concussion and Hormonal Stress: When concussion occurs to anyone the Endocrine System is put out of sync. Because the body and muscles are holding tension, this is an indication the fight/flight neurology is increasing adrenal activity and it stays this way until the adrenals are reset back to homeostasis. Consequently all hormones become out of balance, can also set off anxiety triggers.

Concussion and Scoliosis: Scoliosis is depicted as a twisted or curved spine. However the spine is not the cause of the problem, it is the result of a disorganized nervous system. When a concussion occurs the GAIT Neuro Reflex System cannot signal properly and a particular muscle on one side of the spine does not return back to homeostasis in its resting cycle. This affects the top to bottom and front to back reactive muscle system. If not addressed properly, the spinal column will grow into a twisted and S shape over time. This will cause chronic back pain, Neck tension, shoulder pain, headaches/migraine, dis-orientation, poor coordination, sometimes depression, brain fog and the list is endless as mentioned in the other article by Dr Carl Ferreri.

Concussion and Muscle Tension: Because of the effects of concussion and the disorientation of the Cranial Bone Neuro Reflexes, the muscles of the body go into what is called a Hypertonic State. This affects the Spindle Cells and Proprioceptor cells in the belly of muscles. They are ment to send signal back and forth to the brain through biofeedback via the nervous system.

Hypertonic Muscles are indicated by:

  • Pain in the muscle
  • Weakness – due to ‘muscle proprioceptors’ being in a confused state
  • Restricted range of movement or motion

The other part of the puzzle is the ‘spindle cells’ located in the belly of the muscles. These ‘spindle cells’ monitor and regulate:

  • The rate of change in distance (length) of the muscle and;
  • The time that change takes to occur

Concussion, traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to seizures and epilepsy. Head trauma and lack of proper correction of the cranial reflexes is one of the most commonly identified reasons that patients develop epilepsy. Most studies suggest that approximately 6% of patients with epilepsy have Traumatic Brain Injury as the cause. The more severe the head trauma, and lack of proper physical correction of the cranial and gait reflexes the higher the risk of developing epilepsy at a later stage. Concussion is a physical injury to the head and requires a physical type correction.

As you can see concussion is just a little bit more than a knock to the head. It affects the whole body and the nervous system that operates within the body. The nervous system is basically the electrical circuits to many systems to assist the body/brain/mind in its functioning and be aware of being ‘here now’ utilizing the left hemisphere of the brain for logic and reasoning and the right hemisphere for creativity, enjoyment of life and 100+ other things.

Concussion And Head Injury


There is much talk and discussion about concussion recently and in particular concussion in sports. High profile sports personalities have made headlines having to end their sporting careers due to the lingering effects of concussion.

There are three questions that should be asked by anyone who has experienced any form of concussion from mild to severe.


How Do You Test For A Head Injury?


How Do You Correct A Head Injury?


How Do You Know It Has Been Fixed?


Neural Organization Protocols can answer all three questions and have been doing so for the past thirty years. This concussion protocol will assist all team members regardless of the National Sport you associate with especially if a head injury has occurred.

Major Baseball League, National Basketball Association, National Football League, Rugby League, National Hockey League, Auto racing, American Football, Boxing, Ice Hockey, Rugby Union, Concussion in AFL. These are some of the associations that are starting to take concussion seriously!!!

This is not including head injury in car accidents bike accidents and fights…


The Athlete And The Primary Reflex Systems

The athlete, especially those involved in contact sports, utilises the primary reflex systems and the reactive muscle system, and the Fight/Flight reflex mechanism the most.  The muscles then are depended upon to ensure the survival of the body and so, must be prepared at times, under any circumstance to defend the body as necessary when needed regardless of situational factors – in the dark (at night) or in the light (day light), whether the athlete’s eyes are open or closed.

Whenf there is a deficit in the reflex system from a previous injury which leads to an imbalance in the internal equilibrium, then certain compensatory functions can be found when the individual is examined. The examination, however, needs to be conducted within the parameters of the situational factors that had existed previously such as whether the athlete’s eyes were open or closed and so forth and the ‘in relation to factor’. These examinations are geared towards understanding the primary survival systems, from how they work in the “primitive environment” to the reactive ability of the systems. Once this is understood through the information gathered then one is able to predict how the reflex systems will react in most situations.

Switching Reflex Systems Integration – How Integration works!

Taken from ancient Chinese knowledge it is maintained that this is an essential part of the basic neural organisation known as the “switching reflexes”.  Noted causes for switching reflexes can be physical-structural, emotional-mental, chemical-nutritional. The most common cause, however, is a prior injury.

Basically, when there is a stress on the nervous system due to an injury or fatigue, the system can become unpredictable regardless of prior information gathered. Therefore under the usual treatment protocols a proper diagnosis would not be attained making long term treatment very difficult. In the case of a prior injury such as a sprained ankle there may have been excessive or sudden stretching or strain of the peroneus muscle causing the proprioceptors in the belly of the muscle which are involved in the muscle fibres to bunch up. After the sprain has healed the proprioceptors located in the belly of the muscles which was also damaged still emits a memory signal that there has been an injury and not to over stretch this muscle. This signal causes the central nervous system to react to this signal even though there is no longer an injury, and resulting in muscles not wanting to go into full extension.

This is a built in biological protection, for there is a memory via the proprioceptors telling the brain not to go past a certain point in extension as another injury will occur and then becoming neurologically deactivated at an inappropriate time when strength and energy is needed most. This will manifest in the individual’s posture (possible scoliosis) and also causing their balance, focus and concentration to be off. During this process as well the compensatory functions can extend beyond the time that they are actually needed and so, the persons will exhibit a limp or back problems years after having a leg or hip injury that  actually appears completely healed.

For further clarification, Dr. Robert Frost illustrated the phenomenon by stating that “switching (neurological disorganization) …the signalling within the nervous system has gotten reversed in one or more of the three dimensions. The most common type of switching is right-left switching. If we compare this to a direct current electrical system (like in a car), right-left switching is like a reversal of electrical polarity. Where you should find a positive polarity, you find negative instead.

Everyone with learning difficulties or coordination difficulties has (at least most of the time) right-left switching. The extreme of the range of learning difficulties is called dyslexia. In my experience, all dyslexics are right-left switched. Right-left switching is characterized by mental confusion and/or physical dis coordination. When you hear yourself say "26" when you meant "62", or when you point to the right and say, "turn left here", you can be sure that you have become "switched"”

Reactive Muscle System Maintenance

In order to sustain the integrity of the reactive muscle system and to prevent against occurrences such as “switching”, then the proper functioning of the gait reflex system is critical. The gait reflex is essential as it coordinates all our movements such as balancing, walking, running, standing, jumping, twisting, turning etc that are necessary for basic survival. Based in the cloacal, labyrinthine, and ocular centering/righting reflex systems, the vestibular righting reflex systems and the related tonic neck righting reflex systems which are all primitive in nature, the gait reflex is cross over system and has the ability to affect the larger reactive muscles in a negative way if it is not functioning optimally.

Effects of Scoliosis on Gait Reflex

Scoliosis is not a spinal problem, the curved spine is the result, it’s initial cause is related to the gait reflex and NOT practitioners, unlike their medical counterparts, do not limit their focus on treating the spinal vertebrae. In fact, it has been discovered that the spinal bones have nothing to do with the onset of the condition. In the research it has been found that the curvature of the spine results from two neurological reflex systems which have basically gone haywire and the spine is merely caught in between. Therefore, trying to treat or make the spine straight surgically will not assist in curing the condition known as scoliosis. The spine is not the root or cause of the problem and so old type measures taken will be ineffective. Therefore, one has to look inward to the systems within the body that will converge to create homeostasis and that is neurological. Once a gait system begins to malfunction then it could present itself in the physical as pain if not corrected, as in the case of scoliosis.

Reflex Systems Gait and Scoliosis

For any living organism there are basic innate mechanisms which are vital to their survival, among these are feeding, fight/flight and reproduction. Each survival mechanism is intrinsically tied to the varied neurological reflex systems within an organism. When these are not functioning correctly they are apt to cause an imbalance within the body affecting other structures and disrupting the body’s equilibrium and so, occurrences such as scoliosis will manifest.  In this instance it was found that scoliosis and reproduction are causally related to the gait reflexes.

Reproduction and Scoliosis

Whether congenital or idiopathic scoliosis, the condition typically manifests by the age of 12, as early as 2 and as a late as 14 during the period where the spine grows rapidly and sexual maturity is taking place, preparing the body for reproduction. Reproduction is essential to any species, as through this process they are able to produce offspring, thereby preserving the species.  Within this framework, there is an innate reflex system which is central to the reproduction process, the Cloacal Centring Reflex is the lower part of the Gait Reflex Mechanism.

From the moment that an individual is conceived a sexual mechanism is initiated, which plays a role in determining the sex of the foetus. Notably all foetuses are conceived as females. Male characteristics are then imposed on the foetus to produce a male child. As such, male and females will have similar primary functions. However, their mount positions will differ during sexual activity, as the female’s is located in the posterior (behind) and the male’s located in the anterior (front), which signifies where the Cloacal Centring Reflex is dominant in each sex – the posterior for the female and the anterior for the male.

Thus the reflex is responsible for sexual centering, that is, the female to the male and the male to the female, and is thought to be involved in the coordination of the leg, pelvis and trunk muscles while partaking in sexual activity. The reflex itself is only highly active at certain intervals during the reproduction development process as it operates cyclically. If the cycle’s rhythm is disrupted or is not fully mature, then the process would be compromised and even the most minor of traumas will cause an imbalance in the centering of the trunk muscles to the leg and pelvic muscles. This will lead to other systems being affected such as the reactive muscle system, which incorporates the body’s gait reflex movements.

Reactive Muscle System and Scoliosis

Our bodies are just like any other machinery once one component or system goes awry and is not effectively fixed, it will impact on and impede the functioning of other systems. Where the reproduction system “malfunctions” and sexual activity is impacted, we have to look further to see where other issues arise. The second phase in the development of scoliosis, from the perspective of a NOT practitioner involves the reactive muscle system and the way in which our muscles operate especially during gait reflex movement.

Reactive muscles Gait and Scoliosis

Reactive muscle movement is best depicted through gait (style or manner of walking) reflex movement where the muscles of the body are being continuously activated (facilitated) or deactivated (defacilitated). Through a very controlled process where muscles that are needed are activated and those that are not needed are deactivated geared at ensuring that there is a smooth transfer of energy and motion. For instance, in the simple process of taking a step forward, there is the motion of lifting your leg, pushing off with the foot, moving the arm, changing the position of your head and other associated actions, muscles which would be in opposition to this motion are deactivated to not inhibit the other muscles from working. This is done through a special intact reflex activity and control, which not only manages those muscles that are in motion but also, returns the muscles to a neutral state or tone.

Muscles and the fight/flight reflex

Muscles always need to be alert and ready for fight/flight reflex activity for survival, which means though deactivated they are still partially ignited. To this end 1/3 of muscles are in the facilitation state, 1/3 in a state of relaxation and 1/3 is actually either going into a state of facilitation or deactivation. Thus a tension is maintained within the skeletal muscles so that they are constantly ready for the fight/flight reflex to activate when needed and also, prevents the muscle from being damaged (torn) or coming off the bones.

The problem with Scoliosis is that this muscle tone, instead of being a 1/3 of muscles in the facilitation state, 1/3 in a state of relaxation and 1/3 either going into a state of facilitation or deactivation, it is like 1/4 facilitation state, 1/3 relaxation and 1/2 coming or going. To this extent the muscle tone sequence is screwed up neurologically and this causes constant back pain and scoliosis pain as there is an out of sequence muscle tone in the reactive muscle system creating Gait Disorders.




Childhood And Adult Onset Scoliosis

Childhood And Adult Onset Scoliosis manifests with the continuous steady and unbalanced pull of back muscles causing the bones of the Thoracic Spine to become misaligned, eventually becoming deformed and the curvature of the spine which is characteristic of this condition manifests.

Gait and the special intact reflexes plays a vital role in the functioning of the muscles of the body and so, if they were in any way compromised, then incorrect neuro signals would be sent to the muscles, resulting in the unbalanced muscles pulling on the spinal structures to which they are attached when they should not be. That is poor neurological Gait signalling to the skeletal muscles.


Strong evidence suggests that the presence of Onset Scoliosis can impact a patient in various ways. Yes, there is the obvious physical element to the illness where the person – some more than others – will have a disfigured appearance. However, more notably as published in SPINE Magazine scoliotics have a high incidence of learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Additionally, individuals with the condition will have a high incidence of migraine headaches, or feel hazy in the head which also may contribute towards the dyslexic condition. It is noted that a high left shoulder caused by scoliosis is a contributing factor to poor academic skills and that those with a high right shoulder exhibits poor social and emotional skills. Athletes with the condition are also affected as the reflex systems are not centered and so, they will have a high incidence of pulled hamstring and neck pain to the high shoulder side of the body and in most cases some form of back pain all associated to a malfunctioning Gait Reflex neurallogically.

Diagnosing and Treating Onset Scoliosis

As is now evident that Scoliosis Treatment has to go beyond the physical structure of the spine, as the condition is actually a side effect of a series of reflex mechanisms which ought to be functioning in a way to maintain balance within the body but is malfunctioning. This is clarified as NOT practitioners make the differentiation between the condition of onset scoliosis, which has nothing to do with the spine itself and the scoliotic spine which occurs as a result of unbalanced neurological gait reflexes which manifests as onset scoliosis. Thus, NOT Practitioners focuses on correcting the imbalance of the Gait Disorders reflexes first and then the reactive muscle system which is caused by the disturbed Reflex Mechanism to the reactive muscle system in treating the condition of scoliosis. This means taking a holistic approach to correct or balance all the reflex systems such as the Anterior and Posterior Cloacal, the Labyrinthine, the Ocular Cantering Righting Reflex Systems, which make up the Gait Reflex System followed by the Reactive Muscle System. Therefore, if balance is not sought, then any other methods employed to merely correct the curvature of the scoliotic spine will not be ample, if at all beneficial in correcting the condition of childhood or Early Onset Scoliosis and adult or Late-Onset Scoliosis.

Testing For Onset Scoliosis

By employing the methodology in NOT, testing for Scoliosis Causes becomes somewhat simpler. Instead of exposing young children and particularly, those in their reproductive development to bout of x-rays in diagnosing onset scoliosis, utilising measuring devices and a simple height test before and after treatment to see results should suffice. Further, a trained Kinesiologist in Neural Organization Therapy (N.O.T.) is able to look at the posture of the body and ascertain which muscles are involved and knows how to effectively deal with them. Regardless of the age of the patient or how far the condition has progressed this will alleviate the pressure on the spine, stop the progression of the curvature and pains associated with the condition and also, allowing the nervous system to function normally once the Gait Reflexes are stabilized. Once the strain or pull is removed from the spine, there will be a spontaneous straightening of the spine to some degree and so the patient will become somewhat taller.

Growing Pains sign of Onset Scoliosis

It has been reported that after a single treatment some severe cases (patients) realized a 4 inch increase in their height, and so, if done properly scoliosis can quickly be corrected and with monitoring suggested for children through the glandular development stage and the growth period, even though there is rarely a reoccurrence. Adults should be monitored if they have had some type of trauma since correction as this may affect the nervous system yet again. You have heard of children going through adolescence as having growing pains. This is rubbish! When a child is said to be having or experiencing growing pains, it actually is Onset Scoliosis Pain as well as improper gait signalling via the nervous system and needs to be corrected immediately by a competent NOT Kinesiologist.

Effects Of Misaligned TemporoMandibular Joint

With much discourse about the extent to which the Temporomandibular Joint, located at the base of the skull, affects our overall health; significant strides have been made in assessing its overall function. So how much do you know about the function of the TMJ or Jaw Joint? Firstly, its plays a key role in activities such as speaking. Secondly, believe it or not, it is involved in the way in which we experience pain and emotional stress among others. Also, an individual may experience clicking jaw, face pain and tinnitus if there is any injury to the jaw. The importance of the Temporomandibular Joint is also compounded by the fact that it uses up to 80% of our brain function! 

Researching The TemporoMandibular Joint

While the debate as to how far reaching the jaw can impact upon our health rages on; Dr. Ferreri in his research has allowed for a greater understanding of a range of diverse conditions such as bed wetting, uterine and prostate problems, bladder incontinence, respiratory and circulatory problems originating from diaphragmatic insufficiency, a myriad of back problems including scoliosis and several other health issues through ascertaining their causes and possible treatment options. As his research progressed, it was found that the sequence of activities involved in feeding such as taking food in the mouth, biting, chewing thoroughly and then swallowing, all relates specifically to the neurological control of the digestive mechanism sequencing tied into the Temporomandibular Joint functioning.

TemporoMandibular Joint Digestive Glands

The digestive sequencing begins once the mouth is opened to receive food which causes the activation of the digestive glands. Next, the valves of the digestive tract will contract when one begins to bite down on the food. The digestive tract is then divided into three chambers which are sealed to process the food. As such, it is evident that it is of the utmost importance that the muscles of the jaw are functioning optimally.

It is important to note that a close relationship was uncovered between the jaw and the sacrum, which contributes to pain in the lower back, and is also associated with conditions such as Dyslexia and Scoliosis.

Idiopathic Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a condition wherein the spine of an individual is curved or bended, however, N.O.T practitioners do not see this as a result of an issue with the spine itself, but is a symptom of an underlying problem which goes undiagnosed. The cause for the curvature of the spine or Scoliosis is in fact the presence of muscles which are too-tight or Hypertonic and that are constantly pulling on the bone structure. This inevitably, overtime, causes a rotation and bending of the spine. It is also generally understood that major causes for the occurrence of any of these events can be attributed to a sustained injury to certain reflexes on the head and the pelvis (front and back), in addition to certain hormonal changes that takes place during the course of puberty. This can be easily corrected by N.O.T!!!!

Dyslexia and N.O.T

Specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia and A.D.D have been impacting the learning process of children in schools. These disabilities will also affect adults in carrying out their functions and behavioural patterns causing issues for law enforcement personnel and in many cases home abuse. This, however, can be corrected by using the techniques that are contained within the N.O.T programme which will provide answers to much questions and relief for parents and teachers alike. This is so as the eyes, ears and Temporomandibular Joint are evaluated and then reactivated to work in an organised manner, so that the individual (child or adult) will begin to process information being received in a more meaningful way.

These learning difficulties often entail eye tracking problems and difficulty processing auditory stimuli. Both these symptoms adversely affect the child’s ability to focus their attention on what is being said and displayed for an extended period. It was discovered that the root cause of these issues is the existence of a disorganised nervous system, which may have stemmed from a head injury from an accident that has gone undetected or that some head jamming occurred at birth. Emotional problems and food allergies may also be present which can be attended to by using Kinesiology.

Balanced TemporoMandibular Joint Improves Sports Performance

The temporomandibular joint, most commonly known as the jaw joint is considered to be a vital component in stabilizing  the reactive muscle system of the body. This is so as its three (3) primary functions, where it is responsible for are:

  1. Body centering and maintaining the integrity of the pelvic floor muscles which supports all the pelvic organs and glands, throughout the reactive muscle system.
  2. Neurological control to the digestive process for proper sequencing
  3. Acting as an activating mechanism involved in the primary protection of the central nervous system through the muscles of the jaw joint or temporomandibular joint.

With the primary reactive reflex system of Fight/Flight it sets the body’s defence mechanism in motion which serves to protect the brain and CNS. As in the case of an athlete, such as one that competes in American Football, these muscles will stabilise the sutures (joints) of the cranium (skull) by increasing tension in the cranial dura (covering of the brain).

This third function is of great importance as it explains exactly how these athletes can repeatedly take these ferocious blows as the body in a sequential series of actions takes steps in protecting itself. What these muscles inevitably do is stabilize the brain within the skull to protect it from injury, in the event that a blow is received to the head. Essentially the joints movements are restricted and so, the brain becomes encased in a protective shell. 

Part of the jaw’s muscle complex, known as the lateral pterygoid muscles which stabilize the inside of the skull, is also responsible for the reactive response in the coccygeal muscles. The coccygeal muscles will then pull on the cocoyx or the tail bone and the apex of the sacrum bringing them forward in motion, this then results in a pull on the spinal dura that increases its tension in a bid to protect the spinal cord by restricting spinal bone movement. This is done as a means of protecting the spine from becoming dislocated and assisting in holding the head on the body, in the event of an injury.

As illustrated above one has to view everything in terms of the body’s primitive defence mechanisms, especially if the outcomes are truly life and death scenarios. As such if any indicator is weak then it has to be made strong and if there is no damage to the tissue there will be an immediate effect. Hence, why NOT practitioners, ultimately seeks to establish a protocol between neural organisation and the integrity of physical structures, as they work together as an integrated system within the body. Thus, if there is a balance within the muscle system and it is working effectively, then the potential for athletic injury has been significantly reduced, as the athletes strength would have increased, hence the sports performance of the athlete would also be at its maximum.

Prevention of Athletic Injuries….The Truth!

Athletic injuries are mainly due to impact with another body or the ground, with the exception of bruises and breaks, they actually occur after the impact has occurred. This is so as the body is utilising its primitive defence mechanism of fight/flight and evokes it compensatory functions at the time. Therefore, it is after the impact has occurred that the athlete will feel the onset of back or neck aches as the balancing or timing is out of sync and the muscle pulls and the domino effect of the system begin. With proper treatment, however, the effects of trauma can be neutralized, re-establishing the proper integration of body functions thereby preventing chronic injuries to the athlete. As such, non-traumatic injuries can be wholly prevented.

How To Optimise Your Sports Performance

A properly organised and integrated nervous system with a properly balanced weight-bearing system can prevent majority of athletic injuries and so, it if of the greatest importance that athletes receive proper and effective treatment in order to mitigate against athletic injuries and optimise sports performance.

Sports Injury and Athletic Injury Prevention

To be an athlete requires one to continuously subject the body to arduous workouts and training sessions, strict dietary regimes and a disciplined mind in order to prepare the body for rigorous competitions. This is done as a means of ensuring that your performance is at its finest every time and to mitigate against athletic injury, such as fatigue while performing or any other trauma or endurence that can be sustained. This is no easy task by far. To perform at peak efficiency, fluidity with unimpaired movements consistently, requires an athlete’s muscles and other inner systems to be working in tandem and efficiently, if not, then the athlete will be subjected to endure bouts of sports injury that could have been prevented.

One of the many systems that athletes and their caregivers should pay particular attention to is that of the neurological system. This is so important, especially when there are neurological deficits from an old or pre-existing injury locked up in the Reactive Muscle System, the performance of the athlete will wane, leaving the athlete open to sustain sport injury to the muscles and other structural systems (for example the spine) within the body. This is of critical concern to the athlete in terms of performance and the longevity of their careers as neurological balance and integrity in the Reactive Muscle System play a key role in the level of their performance.

Reactive Muscle System And Sports Injury

The muscles of the body do not act independently; instead they form part of a Reactive Muscle System and so, if there is an imbalance within the system it can weaken the system significantly. So how does the Reactive Muscle System work? Think of gait reflex movement which refers to the manner or style of walking/running, or picture an athlete readying himself to run. The simple process of taking a step forward requires significant coordination between varying muscle bundles in the body, nervous system and brain; beginning with the motion of lifting your leg, pushing off with the foot, moving the arm, changing the position of your head and other associated actions, muscles which would be in opposition to this motion are deactivated to not inhibit the other muscles from working. This is done through a special intact reflex activity and control, which is an injury prevention technique and not only manages those muscles that are in motion yet also, returns the muscles to a neutral state or tone.

An imbalance, however, will result in the reflex activities and controls to breakdown, causing the occurrence of a hyper or tight muscle which would also have a hypo or weak muscle somewhere in normal reactivity. The hyper muscle is considered to be potentially weak as its muscle bundles are not going through the normal resting phases and so may be overworking due to its extended activation. On the other hand, a hypo muscle is considered to be weak from the start because it is mostly in a de-facilitated state. With the muscles not working in their normal regulatory manner of activation and deactivation, this leaves an athlete susceptible to the onset of fatigue and increases the likelihood of a sports injury. Additionally, there is a loss of joint stability which further affects the gait reflex movement, which if not corrected by resuming the neurological balance within the system, will ultimately affect the performance of the athlete. Nonetheless, athletic injury can be abated once athletes are given the necessary care that is required, which is the aim of Neural Organisation Therapy.

Managing Sports Injury And Injury Prevention Using Neural Organisation Therapy

Neural Organisation Therapy also referred to as NOT, and is not merely a technique on how to maintain a healthy neurological balance or on how to restore balance amongst the varying neurological systems of the body yet also, a philosophy. The philosophy adopts the ideology that the body was designed with characteristics which are innate to ensure its survival, even in the most hostile situations or environments. These innate or most primitive of human characteristics are survival mechanisms that are genetically organised in a manner much likened to a computer program and so, the reflex systems of Feeding, Fight/Flight and Reproduction are vital to our survival and this is your premium starting point for your Sports Injury Treatment to get maximum performance out of your body to ensure injury prevention.

Anything that happens to the body in its bid to survive will include at least one of the primary neurological systems directly and another indirectly. For instance, the Limbic System is a combination of the immune, repair and growth and (cellular) reproduction systems, which brings the three primary systems together in a cohesive life force. As demonstrated before we see where the body consist of neurological systems building on top of other systems, and so, this is further controlled by the Nervous System, which monitors these mechanisms, dealing with them as necessary and when needed, constructs compensatory functions to survive. What we want here is injury prevention.

Healing Energy For 21st century

When you have been everywhere to all the conventional places for medical help and haven't received the results you have required, it's time to turn your attention towards kinesiology.

Kinesiology is a tool that will give immediate biofeedback. It will identify whether the issue you are experiencing is physical, chemical, mental and emotional, neurological, environmental.

Drugs, basically stimulate or sedate a targeted area. This may be fine in some cases, yet when that condition is overstressed, stimulating and overstressed area of the body, means energy used to support other areas of the body is sucked away to help to stimulate the area the drug is supposed to fix.

So if the body is already compromised of energy, where is the extra energy going to come from to support the rest of the body, neurologically. The body is already leaking energy, this is why there is a problem in the first place. Kinesiology can quickly identify the energy leaking from the body and go about restoring the energy imbalance much like in acupuncture.

When a drug is used to sedate an area, that indicates there is over energy in one place. A bit like a stream or creek being blocked off by debris. This means anything below that is not receiving its fair share of water, (in this case) energy. Using the kinesiology model, energy is quickly restored and the body's own healing mechanism quickly kicks in.

Any one of, or the whole five categories will be involved.
The physical category may involve releasing blocked a energy in the muscles using hypertonic muscle release. Hypertonic muscles indicate low energy in the muscles.

The chemical category may indicate a hormonal imbalance, blood imbalance, nutritional deficiency, allergies and so on. Chemical pollution will cause many problems including food intolerances, allergies and lung problems.

Emotional/mental may indicate some traumatic experience that happened in the past. Some bad experiences for example that has been buried in the subconscious for many years and has come to the surface. This happens a lot. This is what keeps the psychologists and psychiatrists busy and can take them many years to unravel.

Using The Kinesiology Model For Energy Transformation

Using the kinesiology model, one can backtrack quickly to the time and age when the experience occurred, identified the blocked energy pathways, restore the energies back to homoeostasis (balance) and you get on with your life, enjoying life as you should.

Neurological imbalance is when the brain cannot get a clear pathway to transmit it signals through the various neural-reflexes to the central nervous system and other neural systems. This is the most important aspect to address as it is the Master system, and when it is compromised all other systems are compromised.

Even how you were delivered at the time of birth can have a lifetime effect on you and your body, for example forceps delivery often leaves an imprint causing dyslexia, ADD, ADHD and so on.
I could go on forever writing about the experiences of birth and its effect on the growing child, how it stresses out the puberty experience and later on in life how it stresses out relationships, a most important area.

Environmental: this covers all areas while living in the world. Your experiences growing up in your home environment, your experiences relating to your school environment. Your experiences to your teenage environment and peer pressure. As you may be aware many teenagers these days suffer depression and it need not be so.

All categories that have been mentioned so far when out of balance can contribute towards acquiring depression. By addressing these areas and experiences in your life, depression can be eliminated. Also within your environment there is much pollution both chemical and electronic.

All consultations that happen here last at least an hour as I am not just working with your body/mind, I am working with your life, your whole life to this present time.

Strapping Up A Groin Injury

Strapping up a groin injury is not the way to fix groin muscle pain. You see using this method is not a correction; it is a temporary management fix. If the therapist knew how to correct groin strain properly, it would be done in a few minutes. It may take a few days for the inflammation to settle down yet the groin pain can be relieved almost immediately. There are exceptions especially when there is a groin muscle tear.

Why am I saying this, on each side of the pubic bone there is a major neuro reflex called the ‘anterior cloacal reflex’. Four major meridians pass through and around the area of the groin reflexes. On the bum bone is where the ‘posterior cloacal reflex’ is located both sides and is an integral part of the groin reflexes. There is a major meridian passing through this neuro reflex also.

Groin reflexes and the reactive muscle system

There are also neuro reflexes on the skull, one over the eye on the eyebrow both sides known as the ocular righting/centering reflex, these also have meridians locations at hand. There is another neuro reflex behind the ear just below the bony bump known as the labyrinthine centering/righting reflex, again there are several meridians that support this neuro reflex system. This is a full on neurological reflex system known as the ‘gait reflex system’ that support the groin reflexes.

They are essential to the body for its ability to balance, stand, walk, run, jump, twist, turn, catch and do all the necessary movements for basic survival, of which are used in sport. They must, therefore, be responsible for the integrity of the reactive muscle system.

Groin injury rehab and correction

The tempero-mandibular joint (TMJ or jaw joint) plays a major roll here and is most essential in the stability and reactive muscle system of the whole moving body. As the muscles of the TMJ play a major roll in the fight and flight neuro reflex system, this covers all muscle groups involved in going into battle (contact sport) and flight or defending your position again contact sport. So when you develop a groin strain suddenly or over a period of time, or suffering groin injury long term, there is more involved than just doing groin injury rehab.

Groin injury treatment recovery

The best groin injury prevention is to first find and use a kinesiology therapist that has knowledge in the procedure of HYPERTONIC MUSCLE RELEASE. This is a gentle procedure that can actually lengthen the muscle fibres in the groin reflex area. It uses a specialised breathing procedure in conjunction with muscle contraction and release. There is a timing involved between the muscle contractions and muscle release and breath. This method allows the individual muscle fibres to lengthen. The proprioceptors (nerve massagers to the CNS) in the belly of the muscle and fibres are now given an opportunity reset with the brain signal. These proprioceptors (nerve massagers) became bunched up due to previous groin injury or groin strain restricting their range of movement and their job is to govern range of muscle movement safely as in the case of leg movement.
The ‘power of kinesiology’ identifies the particular muscle and muscle group weaknesses quickly. By doing HYPERTONIC MUSCLE RELEASE to the groin area muscles and the blocked meridian energy is able to flow freely again establishing a healing energy flow. Some people experience a warm energy feeling where the groin injury pain use to be.

Suffering groin injury ends with N.O.T. Protocols

A much deeper correction can be had by the use of N.O.T. Neural Organization Therapy. This protocol goes directly to the neuro reflexes themselves again using the ‘power of kinesiology’. People come to the clinic with a particular problem and the N.O.T. protocols ends up correcting twenty or thirty other issues they forgot to mention.

That is the nature of N.O.T. working directly with the nervous system and the body’s innate intelligence. The ‘gait reflexes’ are part of the correction protocols of N.O.T. and are a more permanent type correction, so for people suffering groin injury, this condition is cleared early in the piece as the N.O.T. practitioner delves deeper into the ‘neuro reflex systems’ to locate and clear the actual cause which in many cases groin injury is the result of something else.
