Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is based on balancing the nervous system with the muscular system; it searches for the underlying causes of long standing pain. Treatment begins with a thorough case history generally followed by a postural analysis, muscle length testing, and tissue palpation. Treatments aim to release muscle spasm and eliminate trigger points which cause referred pain, and can restore flexibility and improve the strength of muscles.

NMT is used by massage therapists and other healthcare practitioners. It is beneficial for many painful dysfunctions including headache, Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS), and chronic back, jaw, and neck pain.
