New IKN Approach Courses Announced!

About Us


Integrated Kinetic Neurology is a system born out of an understanding that there is no singular approach to healing the human body. We believe by combining the most cutting edge techniques in the fields of neuroscience and movement, there can be immediate, and long lasting effects such as decreased pain, along with improved performance, function and quality of life

Dr. Kyle Paxton has earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science, along with his Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from a private university in New York. He set launch to his career by moving to Washington, D.C. and opening a private-owned sports medicine clinic. Through his experiences at the clinic, he realized that the “traditional” approach to rehabilitation was no longer sufficient for providing clients with long-lasting outcomes for enhanced physical performance. From consulting and working with colleagues within the highest level of athletics, he soon realized the power of the nervous system and its immense affect on physical performance. Dr. Paxton began to tailor his techniques within his clinical work accordingly and found positive, sustaining results for clients with a variety of needs. His successes and experiences led to the development of Integrated Kinetic Neurology (IKN), a simplistic yet diverse system involving a combination of neuroscience and movement techniques. Dr. Paxton has strategically shaped the techniques involved in IKN to ensure feasibility in knowledge and application, allowing practitioners to utilize the techniques amongst a variety of settings, and to promote drastic and timely improvements for clients within the areas of pain and performance.

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
