Default Primal Rekinetix

Does anyone know any distinct information about this "technique"? More hype?

Quote:
Bad muscle memory compromises your athletic performance and leads to injury. Symptoms of bad muscle memory include pain, muscle tightness and stiff joints.
The site talks about neuroplasticity which presumably changes during training. Sounds like another trademarked modality cashing in on the sports injury craze. The problem will continue to be, sorting the good from the chaff.

Take a look at this one and the publications section and consider the differences.

I've bolded a couple of red flags within it's stated goals:

1) Eliminate bad muscle memory
2) Instantly enhance athleticism
3) Prevent pain and injury
4) Restore normal biomechanics
5) Client empowerment.

...number five looks good though. It reminds me of that South Park episode where they talk about the movie "Zookeeper" as a turd sandwich that is just being reheated. I'm glad people are using the word "neuroplasticity" more, but remember that the chiros were some of the first to discuss the importance of the nervous system. This was of course, prior to zigging when they should have zagged.

The "developer" has given glowing recommendations for courses he has taken in Iam's PRRT and Baker's Total Motion Release if that is any indication.

Cracks me up where these names get made up from. Lets just put a bunch of cool catchy words or parts of words together.

In the above post I linked to a therapy office in Vancouver that on closer inspection is not recommendable without serious and critical evaluation of the other program components. Homeopathy is featured as a treatment option for brain injury? Too bad, that is just wrong.
It could delay proper and efficacious use of EBM therapeutic drugs.

I had a long talk with my muscles the other day and told them we were going to start fresh, that I was going to forget all the soreness and fumbles they had put me through if they would forget the bad memories as well.

So far they haven't gotten back to me.

Seems like the same neurotrash marketing scheme that is all the rage these days just not a very polished website.
