I am a firm believer in Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy is a scientifically based technique of massage therapy. Using soft tissue manipulation by utilizing static pressure, the same level of intensity is held for a certain amount of time on a taut muscle or point. Keeping the pressure anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds usually until you get the taut muscle to release, sometimes this release can take longer so patience and good communication is a plus when using Neuromuscular Therapy. Your therapist will use a pain scale and instruct you on using breathing techniques to help in getting that tense or knotted muscle to release. This helps to re-balance the function of the nervous system and the skeletal system.
When a chain reaction begins say a stressed or over worked muscle you get what is known as vasoconstriction Thinning of the blood then with the thinning of the blood vessels in the affected area limited blood flow can cause muscle tissue to tighten. When muscle tissue becomes tight or hypertonic, toxins such as Pyruvic acids, Hyaluronic acids and Lactic acids get trapped, these acids cause pain as they are natural neuro-exciters, which cause increased nerve sensitivity which can cause muscle tissue to press nerves against bone also known as muscle compression which can cause a lot of pain. When in pain your body functions in different ways to compensate which can also lead to Postural Distortion and Biomechanical Dysfunction!! Myofascial Trigger Points may also become affected, which redirects pain from one part of the body to another. Thus your chain reaction if not taken care of from the onset.
Many times a client calls and is in such pain they really need help, I am a firm believer in Neuromuscular Therapy as it is very effective and has helped many clients get relief from their pain!! Neuromuscular Therapy helps loosen tight or tense muscles (hypertonic muscles) which restores circulation which then breaks the chain reaction and relieves the client’s pain.
Massage therapy as body maintenance for overall health and wellness helps to stop the chain reaction by taking care of the issues before they can cause more of the negative effects!!
