Dr. Carl Ferreri, a chiropractor from Brooklyn New York, developed N.O.T. It is based on the theory that the body is an integrated whole – self-healing, self-regulating, self-perpetuating. He realized that no matter what the circumstances, how big or small, it must always involve one or more of our survival systems – Feeding – Fight or flight –Reproduction – and the Limbic/Immune system of the human body. These innate systems are in place to ensure our ability to survive and the survival of the species.
It is a very gentle technique that most patients find relaxing, enjoyable and extremely successful.
Neural Organization Therapy (N.O.T.), a non-invasive, chiropractic/kinesiology based treatment protocol, is designed to recognize any of these disorganizations that may be found within the neural programs of these primal survival systems if damaged or otherwise compromised. The treatment protocols are then designed to specifically organize or reorganize a disorganized central nervous system.
N.O.T. is a very complete and powerful holistic medicine treatment and based on principles drawn from Applied Kinesiology, Touch for Health, CranioSacral Therapy, Chiropractic, Chapman Neurolymphatic Reflexes, Bennett Neurovascular reflexes, Acupuncture, Nutrition, Neuro-linguistic Programming and observations by Dr. Ferreri over 45 years of research.
A frequent question asked is “how long does it last?” If the corrections are made properly and completely they usually last until the patient re-injures themselves has a high fever or serious stress in their lives, which may be many years later. Recovery of your health and wellbeing is dependent on how long you have had the problem for and your ability to resolve stresses in your lifeOne thing the patients appreciate is that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, leave it alone” philosophy of NOT.
Conditions seen by practitioners of the Neural Organisation Therapy protocols include the usual spinal and pelvic problems such as sacroiliac and/or sacro-lumbar (low back pains), cervical (neck) and thoracic (trunk), spinal problems, vertebral disc, sciatica (pain in the nerve in the leg), idiopathic scoliosis and other similar structural conditions. These conditions are treated by other systems as well. Neural Organization Therapy is better known for some of its specialty treatment protocols such as the closed head injury syndromes.
The original N.O.T. protocols were first designed to deal with the neurological, physiological and cognitive deficits associated with cranial injury complexes. The term ‘complex’ is used because all of these injuries manifest in multiple deficits. These injury complexes include whiplash, concussion, birth trauma and related problems and headaches (specified and unspecified including migraines) and multiple Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ – part of the defence system in the body) deficits. However, as research has continued we now deal with every survival system in the body and as a result, N.O.T. is now a complete modality practised by chiropractors and kinesiologists around the world.
