Neuromuscular Re-education (NMT) is similar to our Deep Tissue, Myofacial Release, and Trigger Point Therapy at Steamboat Health & Wellness. NMT is a form of manual therapy in which deep, constant pressure is applied to the muscle that is causing chronic or acute pain. The purpose of NMT is to balance out the Musculoskeletal System with the Central Nervous System involving the brain, spinal structure, and nerves that are aggravated by muscle tightness, thus causing pain. At times we also add a pin and stretch while trapping the tight muscle, causing a stretch that does wonders.
Here, at Steamboat Health and Wellness, we have found that NMT is very effective in treating Sports Injuries, Auto Injury Pain, Muscular Trauma, Tightness, Spasms, Sprains, Frozen Shoulder, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Jaw Pain, Leg Spasms, Tennis Elbow, Headaches, Postural Imbalances, Nerve Entrapment, Whiplash, Low Back Pain or Stiffness, Hip Pain, Upper Shoulder Tightness, Neck Pain or Compression, and/or Ischemia (lack of blood flow) due to muscle injuries.
NMT Re-education brings great “relief from pain” for the muscles involved. If you are interested in this very effective therapy, please give us a call 360.866.6479. We will do our best to help you get out of pain.
