Athletic Performance is very dependent on the nervous system. Above all else, your brain prioritizes survival and wants to be sure you live to see tomorrow. That often means “putting on the brakes,” and limiting your performance to ensure that you don’t get injured and threaten survival. What does this actually mean? It means that targeted, neurological interventions can make a difference. In the NeuFit System, we use strategic mobility drills, neurological re-education with the NEUBIE, large doses of eccentric movement to train the muscles to become more pliable and absorb force, and other unique exercises and techniques that amplify your ability to perform at a high level.
Many injuries happen because of poor neuromuscular control, meaning deficits in strength and coordination. If your muscles are working correctly, they can protect you from injury in most cases. However, when muscles don't absorb force correctly, that force is transferred to tendons, ligaments, cartilage, etc. and may cause damage to those tissues. Since those muscles are controlled by your nervous system, we know that ultimately these injuries come back to inappropriate neurological activation patterns.
Using the NEUBIE, we can provide an effective method of re-education, which helps optimize the function of the appropriate muscles. Coupled with the NEUBIE's ability to increase blood flow and other techniques in the NeuFit System, symptoms are often resolved more quickly than they otherwise would.
