Definition of Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy is a scientifically based form of massage therapy that focuses on soft tissue manipulation with the intention of rehabilitating the patient by balancing the function of the nervous system and the skeletal system.
How Does Neuromuscular Therapy Work?
Muscular injury causes a chain reaction that begins with vasoconstriction, or narrowing of the blood vessels in the affected area. While this is helpful in limiting blood flow and reducing bruising, it also causes muscle tissue to tighten. When muscle tissue becomes hypertonic (tight), toxins such as Lactic, Pyruvic, and Hyaluronic acids can become trapped due to reduced circulation called Ischemia. These naturally occurring acids cause pain because they are neuro-exciters, meaning that they increase nerve sensitivity. That's why it hurts.
Many individuals experience pain caused by "trigger points", which redirect pain from one area of the body to another.
