Neuromuscular therapy is a manual therapy for pain management, rehabilitation, and prevention therapy. It is a treatment for myofascial trigger points. The trigger points are microscopic spasms at the neuromuscular junction, where the nervous system communicates with a muscle, causing pain, weakness, and discomfort in a referred pain area. It effectively breaks the stress-tension cycle by promoting a parasympathetic response in the body through precise manual techniques that encourage the neuromuscular junction back to healthy function, reduce resting muscle tension and spasm and move metabolic waste products, which irritate nerves, out of muscle tissue fibers. This technique is a highly effective form of Deep tissue massage that focuses on the unique communications/relationship between the body & the brain, identifying whether the brain is giving the body lousy information or vice versa. It also addresses getting the brain to accept that trauma is over, the body wants to move again, and vice versa.
Neuromuscular therapists are highly skilled in muscle anatomy, connective tissue work, palpation and pain management. It integrates diverse techniques such as trigger point therapy, positional & neuromuscular release, deep-transverse friction, myofascial approaches, and muscle energy. On the right hand, neuromuscular therapy is a highly effective treatment for chronic pain, muscular trauma resulting from an accident or injury, or strain caused by overuse. On the other hand, neuromuscular therapy gets clients back to a healthy lifestyle, doing the activities they want to do.
