NMT sessions have been proven to lessen the pain and symptoms associated with long-term ailments, such as back pain, migraines and cramps. Beyond all the serious issues it helps with, this type of therapy is a form of massage, which means you’re guaranteed to feel a lot more relaxed afterwards, with tight muscles feeling noticeably less tense for several days after the session.
If one of the five factors listed above is causing your pain, a therapist can apply the science of neuromuscular therapy to target your trigger points. Whether it’s focusing on joint motion to alleviate nerve compression, or helping to increase blood flow to specific parts of the body to reduce ischemia, an NMT therapist is equipped with proven techniques to fix problems. Although anyone suffering from muscle pain can benefit from neuromuscular therapy, it is especially helpful for relieving soft tissue pain commonly associated with lower back pain, upper back pain, hip pain, headaches, knee pain, jaw pain and more. Research has also shown that it can improve symptoms from disorders like carpal tunnel, sciatica and even serious diseases like Parkinson’s. But even if you don’t suffer from any of these, neuromuscular therapy is a wonderful way to simply reduce physical tension, release stress, and improve athletic performance.
