Neuromuscular Physical Therapy
Neuromuscular Physical Therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues and bio-mechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.
It is very effective in assessing pain and treating injury or discomfort in the body.
Some of the medical issues for which NMT can be an appropriate treatment include:
Low Back Pain
Upper Back / Neck Pain
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Repetitive Strain injuries
In general patients who undergo NMT can experience the following benefits:
Reduced or complete elimination of pain
Higher levels of flexibility and strength
Increased ease and range of movement
Balanced musculoskeletal and nervous system
