Neuromuscular Therapy examines six physiological factors
Trigger points are highly irritable and sensitive points in the body which can refer pain to other parts of the body.
when a nerve gets pressed or ‘pinched’ between the surrounding structures, it can lead to pain.
Postural distortions result in underdevelopment of the supporting muscles and thereby lead to their weakening.
Faulty movement patterns can result and intensify pain.
Lack of adequate nutrition to the cells leads to an overall weakening of the entire system.
In a condition such as Ischemia, the cells and tissues get a reduced blood supply and as a result are under-nourished.
High loads of stress can adversely affect the functioning of the nervous and musculoskeletal system.
Trigger points are often treated by physiotherapists as nerve impingement. To treat chronic pain in the shoulder some GP’s resort to injecting cortisone. Massage is an alternative (non invasive) treatment for the pain.
Cause sensations down the arm and in the fingers

Cause tightness and restrict movement around the 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
It is widely used in sporting circles on soft tissue injuries and is an excellent tool when used in a preventive manner. Another area where Neuromuscular Therapy has demonstrated huge success is postural distortions – poor posture due to working positions etc.
Neuromuscular Therapy is also extremely effective in post operative situations by helping restore the area to full functionality again.
