- By definition, Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain.
- This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central
nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and
thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission,
inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low
levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health. Neuromuscular Therapy will be used to address
five elements that cause pain:
- Ischemia: Lack of blood supply to soft tissues which causes hypersensitivity to touch
- Trigger Points: Highly irritated points in muscles which refer pain to other parts of the body
- Nerve Compression or Entrapment: Pressure on a nerve by soft tissue, cartilage or bone
- Postural Distortion: Imbalance of the muscular system resulting from the movement of the body off the longitudinal and
horizontal planes Biomechanical Dysfunction: Imbalance of the musculoskeletal system resulting in faulty movement patterns
(i.e., poor lifting habits, bad mechanics in a golf swing of tennis stroke, computer keyboarding)
