The Benefits of Neuromuscular Therapy

elbow massaging shoulderNeuromuscular therapy (NMT) is more than just a massage. It’s a specialized form of soft tissue manipulation that focuses on treating chronic muscle and nerve disorders. This technique zeroes in on the relationship between the nervous system and muscular system to alleviate pain and improve function.

We’re proud to offer it to you at Cleveland Heights Chiropractic Clinic!

Targeting Sciatica and Lower Back Pain

Sciatica is a common issue caused by nerve inflammation, often leading to severe pain that radiates down the leg. Neuromuscular therapy addresses this by targeting specific muscles like the glutes, quads, and hamstrings. Through deep tissue massage, NMT helps reduce inflammation and tension, providing relief from the persistent discomfort of sciatica.

Relieving Neck and Cervical Pain

Neck pain, including issues that extend to the arms, can often be traced back to tightness in muscles such as the rhomboids, teres, pectoralis, upper traps, and spine erectors. By focusing on these areas, neuromuscular therapy can release muscle tension and alleviate nerve compression, helping to restore normal function and reduce pain.

Post-Treatment Care

After undergoing neuromuscular therapy, proper post-treatment care is crucial. Taking Epsom (magnesium sulfate) salt baths can aid in recovery by soothing muscles and reducing inflammation. Cryotherapy (using ice packs) will assist in reducing inflammation since inflammation essentially is warm. It’s important to follow recommended post-treatment practices to ensure the best results and maintain the benefits of the therapy.

Combining Therapies for Optimal Results

Neuromuscular therapy is often most effective when combined with other treatments. By integrating chiropractic care and massage, patients can achieve accelerated recovery through the continued alignment of the spine and relaxation of muscle tissues. This comprehensive approach helps address the underlying nerve-related causes of pain, providing a more complete and lasting solution.
