What is NET' & How it Evolved
In the mid 1980s, Dr. Scott Walker started developing a procedure (which he eventually named NET) that would help his chiropractic patients who had chronically recurring vertebral subluxations — those cases where a traditional adjustment didn't always hold and the patient's symptoms failed to fully resolve. What Dr. Walker came to discover was that there was often an associated emotional/stress overlay that was retriggering the physical problem, and once this was addressed, patients got better — both in body and mind.

Treating Mind & Body — Scientific Evidence
Results from a 2017 study of patients with traumatic stress symptoms demonstrated significant changes in the NET group (as compared to the control group) in the functional connectivity between the cerebellum, the amygdala, and parahippocampus, as well as reductions in autonomic reactivity based on heart rate response to the traumatic stimulus.
In another 2021 published study, NET or control treatments were given twice weekly for 4 weeks to patients with chronic low back pain. Compared to the placebo group, patients receiving the NET treatment showed clinical and statistical significance with declines of virtually all pain markers, as well as showed positive gains in quality-of-life indicators.
