Neuro-Muscular (Nerve-Muscle)/Trigger-Point Therapy
These techniques manipulate muscles, tendons, and connective tissues to bring balance to the central nervous system. When there is restriction in the muscles, the nerves are often unable to signal properly, which leads to pain, weakness, and muscle compensation. Alternating levels of concentrated pressure are applied to the areas of specific muscle pain to help release the muscles and allow for proper transmission of the nerves. In addition, Trigger point therapy aids in breaking up adhesions (small painful lumps) in restricted muscles and resolving the referred pain that they often trigger elsewhere in the body.
