IKN Performance

IKN Performance is a 1 day 8 hour interactive course that is heavily movement based. It will cover a large number of techniques and exercises that will properly harness the nervous system to improve speed, strength and power, including neural modifiers to make any movement including squat, bench and lunges more stimulatory to the brain.

We will be covering how to make sports performance & training more stimulatory to the brain and nervous system. We will be focusing on movements that will help improve muscle sequencing, force absorption/production, speed, and reaction to environment. After attending this course, you will be able to make any movement and tailor it to stimulate the nervous system. We will be using barbells in this course so it helps to be comfortable in that setting.

  • This is not a singular approach
  • Nothing can replace an solid strength training program
  • everything we cover during this day is meant to supplement to allow to improve results

All the techniques in this course are able to be performed hands off, making it perfect for therapists, coaches, trainers, athletes, or anyone working in the sports performance world.

Dr. Ryan Foley earned his Doctor of Physical Therapy and Bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences,Psychology, and Gerontology from Nazareth College of Rochester, New York. After his 6 years in New York, he moved to Miami to work at a sports performance center, delivering treatment professional athletes from teams such as the Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos and also the U.S.A Olympic Sailing team. It was here where he learned advanced treatment techniques to improve pain and sports performance. After his spell in Miami, Ryan moved to back to Manhattan, NY to begin working at a sports medicine & amp; rehabilitation Institute, specializing in helping individuals with pain and performance issues. Out of dissatisfaction with the conventional approach to helping people resolve pain and injuries, he moved back to Ireland and began studying applied functional neurology methods, specifically Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex, along with other applied neuroscience approaches to help get people get out of pain and improve function. He now owns his own private practice Evolve Physiotherapy
