Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a form of Deep Tissue Massage. NMT uses pressure and friction to release strain in the muscle. Trigger points cause strain and pain throughout the muscle. Muscle stress constricts the muscle. The muscle constriction can pressure a nerve bundle. This pain can be felt at a distance from the original location of the muscle spasm. In other words, muscle strain can cause referral pain.
In addition, muscle strains causes sciatica and carpal tunnel. Similarly, muscle strains causes headaches, TMJ, tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Therefore, NMT provides relief for all these types of strain. Wellness on Wheels can provide this service at your home.
Benefits of Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is designed for the treatment of chronic pain. According to Mayo Clinic, “sensitive areas of tight muscle fibers can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse,” which can cause muscle and joint stiffness and deep, aching muscle pain. Tigger points are muscle fibers locked in a constricted position. This limits range of motion and flexibility. Muscles in spasm limit blood flow to the muscles and joints in that area of your body. The result is a build up of metabolic waste and a lack of fresh oxygen and nutrients. During Neuromuscular Massage, the therapist aims to increase blood flow, release the trigger point and extend the muscle.
n conclusion, Neuromuscular Therapy is a rehabilitative therapy for those recovering from physical stress.
