Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.
Neuromuscular therapy is used to treat many different soft tissue problems. The following list is a small example of issues that may be helped by neuromuscular therapy:
- Lower back pain
- Upper back pain
- Carpal tunnel like symptoms
- Sciatica like symptoms
- Hip pain
- plantar fasciitis
- calf cramps
- knee pain
- iliotibial band friction syndrome
- jaw pain
- tempomandibular joint pain (TMJ disorders).
Soft tissue pain that feels like 'knots' in the muscle are very common, but can be treated by neuromuscular therapy. We all feel muscular pain in some shape or form and now we have something to do about it.
