Nero Muscular Therapy


Neuromuscular Therapy is a specialized form of manual therapy that focuses on treating musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction. It is also known as trigger point therapy or myotherapy. Developed by Janet Travell, MD.  She is remembered as President John F. Kennedy’s personal physician and a researcher and developer of the concept of trigger points as a cause of musculoskeletal referred pain.

Neuromuscular therapists use a variety of techniques, including digital pressure, cross fiber friction, working superficial and deep muscles, as well as stretching to address trigger points. Trigger points are hyperirritable knots or tight bands within muscles that can cause referred pain and restricted movement. These points are believed to be related to nerve and muscle interactions, hence the term “neuromuscular.”

The goal of Neuromuscular Therapy is to release these trigger points, reduce muscle tension, improve blood flow, and restore normal function to the affected areas. It can be beneficial in treating chronic pain conditions, postural imbalances, sports injuries, and other musculoskeletal problems.

As with any specialized therapy, it is crucial to seek treatment from a qualified and trained practitioner who understands the principles and techniques of Neuromuscular Therapy. Neuromuscular trigger points are often treated during myofascial release treatment.
