Welcome to the World of NIP

Dr Neil J. Davies D.C., Director of Kiro Kids
The NIP technique came about during the 1990’s. It is the brainchild of Dr Neil J Davies D.C, the author of the popular text “Chiropractic Paediatrics A Clinical Handbook” published by Churchill Livingstone.

During this time Dr Davies was striving to evolve a technique approach to be used with babies that was absolutely precise neurologically, but extremely gentle in its application.

Using the foundational principles of the Gonstead system of subluxation analysis combined with orthodox techniques of neurological assessment together with the toggle recoil and Logan Basic systems of adjusting, NIP was born.

Predictable, reproducible clinical results

The technique was originally designed for use with babies and for a number of years was confined to use in that age group. As development progressed it soon became evident that the technique was just as applicable to the adult population and in fact was far superior in the clinical results it produced than the systems being used by Dr Davies at the time. Some 8 years of clinical research in the patient setting has led to the consolidation of an amazingly accurate, reproducible system of subluxation assessment that affords the chiropractor an opportunity to impact even the most difficult of cases.

Intelligent neurological chiropractic

Patients drive long distances to receive NIP technique because the results they are getting are quick and sustainable and they don’t get hurt by hard manipulative style techniques.

NIP is cutting edge neurological chiropractic that offers a level of precision and accuracy previously unknown in chiropractic.

Ultimate precision in subluxation detection

Along with its gentleness (you can tolerate the thrust on your eyeball!) the uniqueness of the NIP system lies in its ability to direct the chiropractor to exactly the right location to adjust. It does this by its highly sophisticated integration of very precise chiropractic assessment techniques and detailed neurological examination. The technique is so precise, the typical NIP practitioner needs only adjust one location per visit to achieve maximum, sustainable clinical outcomes.

The assessment technique is so accurate it led one medical specialist who was spending some time watching one of the Kiro Kids chiropractors practice to remark that in all his training and specialist practice he had never seen such a sophisticated approach to the neurological examination or such rapid changes following treatment.

Total full body integration

Dr Neil J. Davies D.C.The NIP examination will tell you exactly where and when to adjust your patient for best results. It will tell you if the loss of function you are seeing in the cervical spine for example is in fact a cervical problem or whether the primary subluxation is in another part of the spine or even in an extremity or the cranial vault. Knowing exactly where and when to adjust your patients and knowing why will naturally increase your self confidence, your patients’ results and your professional satisfaction.

This program was 2 years in the making and we originally launched the Basic course in 2006 in Dublin, Ireland and then the Advanced course was taught in Manchester, United Kingdom in early 2007. The response in the Northern Hemisphere to the NIP technique for family practice has been quite overwhelming with people reporting quite extraordinary results amongst their case mix.

In the last five years, NIP has evolved and changed as research and clinical studies have revealed more information about the subluxation and the NIP technique. We have an incredible learning resource at our hands to understand and correct the subluxation.
