Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
NMT is a specific and detailed approach to identify and address the causes of soft tissue (muscles, fascia, tendons and ligaments) pain and dysfunction.
NMT helps achieve a balance between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems by targeting the possible cause and/or perpetuating factors leading to and keeping the body in its state of imbalance – this imbalance presented in the form of your pain or dysfunction.
NMT utilises advanced massage techniques to restore postural alignment; release muscle spasms; release possible nerve entrapment by soft tissue structures; eliminate myofascial trigger points causing referred pain symptoms; increase limited flexibility and joint range of motion and promote good biomechanics.
Poor posture and faulty biomechanics are common place in today’s society due to adaptations and conditioning to our environment, lifestyle and the type of job we have and can often be a major factor contributing to your soft tissue pain or dysfunction. Techniques used will include a Postural Analysis; Trigger Point Therapy; Myofascial release (MFR); Cranial Decompression; Heat and Ice Therapy; Muscle Energy Techniques and stretching.
NMT appreciates the body as a whole – all techniques and theories used, help address biomechanical, biochemical and psychosomatic issues that are associated with your soft tissue complaint.
NMT can be applied to persons of all ages and conditions.
NMT can be successful in the treatment of:
- Back and neck pain
- Migraines and headaches
- Whiplash injuries
- TMJ (jaw) dysfunction
- Tinnitus and ear aches
- Sinus pain and congestion
- Soft-tissue faulty biomechanics and joint dysfunction
- Postural re-integration and scoliotic patterns
- Helping correct postural distortions.
- OOS symptoms
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
- Frozen shoulder
- Tennis/golfers elbow
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Arthritic symptoms
- Respiratory restriction
- Relief of chronic muscle tension / fatigue / weakness
- Sciatic pain
- Shin splints
- Among others
