What is Neuromuscular Therapy?

By definition, Neuromuscular therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. In a healthy individual, nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for every movement, function and thought) to the body very slowly. Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and dysfunction.

Neuromuscular therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure of the areas of muscle spasm. The massage therapy pressure is usually applied with the fingers, knuckles or elbow. Once applied to a muscle spasm, the pressure should not vary for ten to thirty seconds.

Neuromuscular Therapy Can Reduce Muscle Pain

Muscles that are in spasm will be painful to the touch.  The pain is caused by ischemic muscle tissue.  Ischemia means the muscle is lacking proper blood flow, usually due to the muscle spasm.  This in turn creates a situation where muscle is not receiving enough blood or enough oxygen.  This lack of oxygen causes the muscle to produce lactic acid, making the muscle feel sore following physical activity. After the muscle is relaxed through massage therapy, the lactic acid will be released from the muscle, and the muscle should state receiving enough blood and oxygen.

Neuromuscular therapy may feel unfamiliar or even slightly painful at first, by the pressure of the massage should alleviate the muscle spasm. At this point, it is extremely important to communicate with the massage therapist regarding the pressure – where the pressure is too much, too little, getting better, getting worse. The therapist will listen and respond accordingly.

What To Expect After Neuromuscular Massage Therapy

Following a Neuromuscular therapy massage, any soreness that presents itself should fade after twenty-four to forty-eight house. The muscles that were tight should remain noticeably more relaxes for four to fourteen days, depending on stress, activity level, and severity of back pain prior to beginning massage therapy.
