Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is a type of manual therapy that aims to alleviate pain and discomfort in the muscles and soft tissues of the body. This therapy is based on the understanding that imbalances in the nervous and musculoskeletal systems often cause pain and dysfunction in the body.

 NMT practitioners use various techniques, including manual therapy, myofascial release, stretching, and trigger point therapy, to restore balance and function to the body.

This can be especially beneficial for people with chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia or back pain. NMT can also help improve flexibility and range of motion, benefiting people with arthritis, new or old injuries. NMT can also help improve posture ,alignment, reduce pain and discomfort throughout the body.

Another benefit of NMT is its ability to improve overall physical health. NMT can help improve circulation, leading to better oxygenation and nourishment of the cells and tissues in the body. This can improve overall energy levels and reduce fatigue. NMT can also help improve the immune system by stimulating the lymphatic system, which removes waste and toxins from the body. This can help to reduce inflammation and improve overall health.

In addition to physical benefits, NMT can also have psychological benefits. NMT can help to reduce stress and tension in the body, which can lead to a reduction in anxiety and depression. Additionally, NMT may also help to improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia, which can lead to improved mood and overall well-being.

Overall, NMT is a powerful tool for improving physical and psychological health. It can help to alleviate pain and discomfort, improve physical function, and reduce stress and tension. It is a non-invasive, holistic approach to healthcare that can be used as complementary therapy alongside other forms of treatment.

It’s important to note that NMT should be performed by trained and licensed professionals, as it involves manipulating the body and can be dangerous if not done correctly. 

Check with your medical provider if NMT is right for you.
