Neuromuscular Therapy Used to address five elements that cause pain: Ischemia -the lack of blood supply to muscles which causes sensitivity to touch; Trigger Points - highly irritated spots in muscles which cause pain or sensations to travel to other parts of the body; Nerve Compression or Entrapment - when a tight muscle, cartilage or bone squeezes a nerve and causes pain or numbness; Postural Distortion -when the muscles are pulling the skeleton out of alignment resulting in poor posture or pain; Biomechanical Dysfunction - repetitive movements that become muscle holding habits that cause the muscles and skeleton to be out of alignment. Neuromuscular Therapy reduces or eliminates pain, increases flexibility and circulation of blood to damaged tissue, improves posture, decreases body toxicity, increases energy and vitality, and enhances your overall sense of well-being.
