What conditions does NMT help?
Neuro Muscular Therapy (NMT) successfully addresses and eliminates pain associated with: Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Headaches, Migraines, Carpal Tunnel, Herniated Discs, Scoliosis, Knee, Hip, Foot, or Joint Pain, Rotator Cuff (shoulder problems), Sports Injuries, TMJ, Whiplash, Tennis Elbow, Fibromyalgia, Osteo Arthritis, Plantar Fasciitis, Torticollis, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Shin Splints, Tendonitis, Spasms, Cramps, Strains, Postural Distortions, Post Polio Syndrome, Poor Posture, Stress, Tension, and more…
NMT gets to the SOURCE of your pain, whether you experience an aching, throbbing, burning, stabbing, tingling, piercing, grinding, tension, stiffness, restriction, clicking or pounding sensation.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is an approach to soft tissue manual therapy in which a practitioner applies quasi-static pressure to soft tissue in order to stimulate skeletal striated muscle.
Often these areas of muscle are Myofascial trigger points. NMT practitioners balance the central nervous system (brain, spinal column and nerves) with the structure and form of the musculoskeletal system.
Through applied knowledge of trigger points, neuromuscular therapy addresses postural distortion (poor posture), bio mechanical dysfunction, nerve compression syndrome, and ischemia.
Using only hands, a Neuromuscular Therapist pinpoints your stiff muscles and exact location of your pain, stiffness, numbness, or weakness. Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) specifically locates and releases your tight muscles and trigger points getting to the CAUSE or source of your pain.
Trigger points are a component up to 93 percent of the muscle pains seen in pain clinics, and the SOLE cause of such pain as much as 85 percent of the time.
Your muscles make up a HUGE part of your body. When your body has physical trauma, strains, or emotional stress, your muscles are strongly affected. Yet, until recently the muscles and trigger points have been largely overlooked as a major cause for your pain. Now, studies show your muscles, particularly trigger points, play a big role in terms of health and dysfunction to the overall economy of your body and its ability to function well.
What causes YOUR pain?
NMT identifies 5 sources of pain:
◦Ischemia is a lack of blood supply to your muscles causing them to become very sensitive to the touch. Go ahead and make a fist for 10 seconds and open it. See how “pale” your skin looks from no blood flow? When your muscles are tight or in spasm throughout the day, blood and oxygen are not optimally nourishing your cells and eliminating waste products. Also, good circulation in your muscles is a key component to fighting disease and superb health.
◦Trigger Points are small “knots” in your muscles that when compressed create referred pain locally or to other areas of your body. For example, do you ever feel like your neck muscles create a pounding headache behind your eye, base of your skull, or anywhere in your head? Or do your shoulder muscles when tight from sitting in front of a computer produce numbness or pain down your arms, even into your hands?Often, the source of your pain stems from other areas and is simply a trigger point waiting to be released. No amount of Advil or stretching fully releases your trigger points. Only releasing them by hand does.
◦Nerve compression or entrapment is pressure on a nerve by muscles or bone. Who do you know who has complained of Sciatica? Because so many of us sit all day, this “pain in the butt” is commonly caused by your hip muscle called the piriformis pushing on your sciatic nerve creating pain deep in your hip and even down your leg. Or, so many people today are wrongly diagnosed with Carpel Tunnel Syndrome when the CAUSE of their arm and hand pain comes from their neck. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (TOS) is a perfect example. Because of poor posture and slumping at the computer for 8 hours a day, our neck and shoulder muscles begin tightening around the nerves and arteries. Well, guess what? These nerves and arteries just happen to run down our arms. So when they’re squeezed and compressed in your neck and shoulder you feel pain all the way into your arm and hand.. This is so common among computer workers that one could say that Bill Gates has been a huge supporter of the medical industry.
◦Postural distortion is an imbalance (too weak or tight) of your muscles which pulls your body out of alignment. Computer-shoulder and forward-head posture are perfect examples. Stand in front of a mirror and check out your alignment. Is one of your shoulders or hips higher or lower than the other? Does your pelvis feel tilted or rotated more than it should be? Do you stand favoring one side? Look down at your feet. Do they turn outward or inward? These are all postural distortions that when corrected and eliminated restore proper posture and get rid of pain.
◦Bio mechanical dysfunction is an imbalance of your muscles and bones resulting in improper movement patterns. Spend a few minutes watching people walk and you notice how common it is to swing one arm more, favor one side, or be stuck in improper movement patterns. This constant straining of certain muscles frequently leads to many aches and pains and is re-educated with neuromuscular therapy.
