What Is Neuromuscular Therapy?
Neuromuscular therapy (NMT) is an approach to soft tissue manual therapy in which quasi-static pressure is applied to soft tissue to stimulate skeletal striated muscle.Through applied knowledge of trigger points, neuromuscular therapy addresses postural distortion (poor posture), biomechanical dysfunction, nerve compression syndrome, and ischemia.
How Neuromuscular therapy will help you?
- It will improve flexibility and movement around the pelvis and sacroiliac joint.
- Break down scar tissue so can repair damage from old injuries.
- Help you improve your core strength to take the pressure off your lower back
Deep tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage
A treatment that helps to restore function to injured "soft tissues" (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and promotes general relaxation, improves circulation and range of movement.
The benefits include:
Improving suppleness and flexibility of muscles and joints.Speeds up the recovery and healing time for injured tissues. Breaks down adhesions (sticking) of tissues which can cause tightness and stiffness. Increases range of motion in joints and releases blocked muscle function.Reduces joint pain by direct loosening of the capsule.
What is sports massage?
Massage before an event involves stretching muscles to improve flexibility and circulation which is important to injury prevention. Post event, the sports massage therapist aims to loosen muscles that have become stiff during competition and therefore aid relaxation. Weekly maintenance sports massage eases pain brought about by intensive
training and keeps muscles flexible and in good health for forthcoming competition.
With Dry Needling, the needles are used to target the trigger point of the problem muscle, this is known as the myofascial trigger point and is often described as a muscle 'knot' which
contributes to muscle pain and dysfunction.
The needle is gently inserted into the skin directly at this point and often a local twitch response is experienced, this is a good sign and is what the physiotherapist is looking for. It means the trigger point has been stimulated, jump starting the muscle and nerve supply and increasing the blood flow to the area which helps to relax the muscle. When this local twitch response occurs, a brief painful response might be felt but it won't last for more than a second.
After dry needling treatment, the area that was treated will feel much softer and relaxed and the person will feel looser.
