At NeuroTarget Chiropractic we use the NeuroTarget System as well as other modalities to find and resolve the cause of your pain.
The History of the NeuroTarget System
The NeuroTarget System was developed by Dr. John Pietila in 2006. Dr. J graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 2002. At that time he was already using muscle testing, but didn’t fully understand how it worked. He also learned early on in his practice that sometimes an adjustment helps a lot and other times it doesn’t help or even makes the patient worse.
In his search for answers he stumbled into functional neurology. Even at the very first seminar he learned not only how muscle testing worked, but also how an adjustment of the spine affects the nervous system and the body. Dr. J continued his education in neurology and eventually earned his Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (DACNB). By this time he was well on his way of looking at chiropractic techniques and procedures and understanding the neurological implications. Using this new knowledge he was able to modify these techniques to formulate a system of not only finding the cause of a typical injury but also how to resolve the cause.
Finding and fixing the cause of pain can not only resolve the pain or injury quickly, but it can also prevent pain or injury from returning. Correcting these underlying imbalances can also improve efficiency of movement resulting in increased performance.
