Neuromuscular Therapy & Sports Massage

Neuromuscular therapy & Orthopaedic Sports Massage involves assessment and specialised treatment of muscles. A variety of muscle manipulation techniques are used during the treatment including Muscle Energy Technique, Positional Release and Trigger Point Release. The objective of the treatment is to reduce pain and return normal tone and function to dysfunctional muscles.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a very specialised form of manual therapy. A therapist trained in NMT is educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. The Neuromuscular Therapist also is educated in kinesiology and biomechanics.

The role of a trained Neuromuscular Physical Therapist is to assess the symptoms and address the causes of soft tissue pain, injury and dysfunction. By assessing and addressing postural distortions, restrictions in the client’s functional range of motion and facilitating a return to normal musculoskeletal function, neuromuscular therapy provides a longer lasting relief from pain.

Neuromuscular Therapy is innovative in that it combines the best selection of soft tissue manipulation techniques developed by pioneers from a variety of healthcare professions.
