Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a very specialized form
of manual therapy. A therapist trained in NMT is
educated in the physiology of the nervous system and its
effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. The
Neuromuscular Therapist also is educated in kinesiology
and biomechanics and how to work in a clinical or
definition, Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of
static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve
pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the
body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance
the central nervous system. In a healthy individual,
nerves transmit impulses (which are responsible for
every movement, function and thought) to the body very
Injury, trauma, postural distortion or stress cause
nerves to speed up their transmission, inhibiting
equilibrium and making the body vulnerable to pain and
dysfunction. It is therefore necessary to stabilize low
levels of neurological activity to maintain normal
function and overall health.
