Neuromuscular Therapy – Sagewood Wellness Center

Today’s stress-filled, active lifestyle can result in a multitude of pains, strains and injuries. This can lead to a state of chronic discomfort, impairing your quality of life. Accidents can result in more severe effects on your well-being that can last for years. A program of Neuromuscular Therapy can alleviate minor, severe and chronic muscular pain.

Neuromuscular Therapy is a highly specialized type of soft tissue therapy designed to relieve pain and return injured tissues to normal function. It utilizes specific, targeted soft tissue treatment, flexibility stretching and self care to eliminate the causes of most muscular aches and pains. It can provide long-term pain relief where other approaches have failed. Neuromuscular Therapy balances the nervous system with the muscular and skeletal systems and naturally brings the body back into alignment. It addresses postural and muscular imbalances, nerve entrapment, ischemia (reduced blood flow to an area of the body) and muscular trigger points.

Identifying and treating trigger points (TrPs) is a significant aspect of Neuromuscular Therapy. TrPs are hyper-sensitive, pea-sized nodules, or knots, which develop in injured muscles. If not treated correctly, they often cause debilitating pain which can last for years. Some causes of injury resulting in TrP pain may be activities that require repetitive motion, chronic physical or emotional stress, a fall or accident and postural or muscular imbalances. Nutrition can also play a role in the development of TRPs. The pain caused by TrPs can be either local – at the site of the TrP – or referred into other areas of the body. At Sagewood Wellness Center, I have the knowledge, experience and skills to identify the causes of your pain and to use specific Neuromuscular Therapy methods to release it.

Neuromuscular Therapy produces results where other approaches have failed. It can be part of a comprehensive program, complementing other health care approaches for a program of total well-being.
