Neuromuscular therapy brings about a reversal
of the stress-tension-pain cycle.
Neuromuscular therapy is a specific approach to pain reduction which
utilizes advanced concepts in the science and art of pressure therapy.
Depending on the location of the painful condition, the therapist will use
the thumb, hand, elbow, or small soft-tipped pressure bar to manipulate tissue
and apply pressure to the involved connective tissue. Pressure is usually
maintained for approximately six to ten seconds to obtain maximum tension
release. Specific movement stretches are then provided for developing and
maintaining muscle flexibility and normal tone.
It is not uncommon to experience the following as a result of a
- Increased mobility
- Pain reduction or total cessation
- Softening of the nodular spasm at the trigger site
- Increased tissue warmth
- Relaxation of the connective tissue
Neuromuscular re-education therapy blended with
Class IV laser treatment is a powerful combination
to quickly break the pain cycle.
