Neuromuscular Therapy is a specialised form of manual therapy which provides a balance of the nervous system with the muscular and skeletal systems to treat soft tissue pain , chronic injuries and relieve changes in sensation.
Neuromuscular techniques are highly accomplished in naturally bringing the body back into alignment by treating Myofascial trigger points, muscle adhesions and connective tissue patterns with the informed consent of patients. Problems are normally caused by a speciﬁc trauma, repetitive movements or even bad posture. Trigger points can lead to referral pain, which explains a phenomenon in which areas far away from the trigger point experience sensations of pain, tingling or numbness.
NMT assessments and examinations primarily address:
• Ischemia ( tight tissue with reduced blood ﬂow )
• Myofascial trigger points ( hypersensitive points within muscle ﬁbers that can refer pain and sensations )
• Neural entrapment & Nerve Compression ( pressure on nerves causing pain )
• Postural Assessment ( looking at the position of the body as a whole )
• Dysfunctional Gait Patterns ( Manner of movement )
• Reinforce neuromuscular pathways (promote good form and proper muscle recruitment)
