Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy focuses on the nervous system and how it effects the muscular and skeletal systems of the body.  A single nerve can innervate several muscles which can refer pain to different parts of the body.  Knowing the Physiology and the Kinesiology of  the human body, the therapist can help to relieve chronic pains for the client. There are several causes of pain that can benefit from Neuromuscular Therapy: Ischemic tissue (soft tissue suffering from a lack of blood flow), nerve compression or entrapment (pressure on a nerve from muscles or other soft tissue), postural distortions (dysfunction and imbalance within the body), Trigger points (specialized, tender points in the body that can refer pain to other parts of the body), and Biomechanical Dysfunction (caused by repetitive motion injuries ie:poor lifting habits). Here are just a few of the  disorders that greatly benefit from Neuromuscular Therapy:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Migraine Headaches
  • Sciatica
  • Tennis Elbow/ Golfer’s Elbow
  • TMJS
  • MS
  • Shin Splints
