ABOUT NCA

AN INTEGRATION OF MULTIPLE SYSTEMS

After years of practice and study with leading researchers in manual therapy and rehabilitation exercise, Dr. Phillip Snell began blending multiple systems into a coordinated approach which prioritized assessment and treatment of neurological distress and threat.

Working in tandem with Dr. Justin Dean, they refined and honed the Neurocentric Approach by blending research from multiple medical specialties.

To date, there are no other systems of physical medicine and rehabilitation that combine BOTH manual therapy AND rehabilitation exercise. The Neurocentric Approach (NCA) is unique in allowing clinicians an easy-to-learn, easy-to-apply system to speed care and improve outcomes.

NCA gets to the root of the pain and movement problem and uses a clinical audit process so that both doctor and patient know whether the therapy is effective within the treatment. This improves compliance with home care and establishes a “locus of control” as patients learn how to manage their own condition effectively.
