Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a very specific system of manual therapy. It is the use of fixed pressure on distinct myofascial points to relieve pain and pressure. At Back On Track, our trained professionals will manipulate the body's soft tissue, which includes tendons, muscles and connective tissue, to stabilize the central nervous system. When the nervous system is working properly the nerves slowly transmit messages which stimulate every thought, function and movement. When an individual experiences trauma or stress these transmissions accelerate, causing the body to be unprotected from pain and injury. Our therapists will balance out the levels of these transmissions to return the body to normal function.

Neuromuscular Therapy is implemented on soft tissue. It focuses on trigger points, biomechanics (movement patterns), nerve entrapment, as well as posture. Trigger points are particularly bothersome areas in the muscle tissue that transmit pain to other parts of the body. Our therapists find the root of this pain and then work to restore the muscles to their appropriate balance and length, and diminish spasms that the tissues are experiencing.
