What is Kinetic Chain Release (KCR)?
Kinetic Chain Release is a simple extremely effective bodywork protocol based on the premise that leg length differences generate imbalance throughout the entire body. Developed by Scottish Physiotherapist Hugh Gilbert, KCR is a unique system of mobilizations and stretches which correct the apparent leg length difference and bring about balance quickly and easily. When the physical body is brought into alignment many existing and physical dis-abilities or discomforts simply disappear instantly, where other forms of treatment have proven unsuccessful. This simple procedure, preformed while the client is fully clothed, on a massage or treatment table is revolutionizing physical rehabilitation. KCR frequently provides a high degree of relief and even instant resolution, in many cases, from pain and discomfort caused by conditions such as:
Chronic Back Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Wrist Pain and Weakness
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Behavioral Disorders in Children
Chronic Knee Problems
Chronic Neck Pain
Weak Ankles (frequently sprained)
Recurrent Hamstring Issues
Recurrent Groin Strain
Repetitive Stress Injury
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Who Can Benefit from KCR?
Everyone from the very young to the aged can benefit from this amazing protocol. It has a profound effect on the human body. When KCR is performed on young children, their bodies have the opportunity to develop in a balanced and healthy way, preventing many physical discomforts which may bring complications in later life. Athletes from the everyday to the elite, use the KCR protocol to significantly enhance performance and maintain their edge, often achieving complete and lasting results in one session.
