Countless people deal with the effects of chronic or acute pain on a daily basis. Some can just shrug it off until it comes back with a vengeance and others live with ailments so debilitating, hope for relief seems unattainable. Neuro-muscular Re-Education can be used as a tool to successful pain-free living. It’s used by therapists to restore normal movement and balance. It can also correct posture and help with increased joint movement.
Nerves send complex signals between your brain and muscles; telling them where, when and how fast to move. Over time, nerve tracts and muscle motor patterns are stored in your memory. If either of these are incorrect, or if you have suffered an injury, it can cause pain and dysfunction as well as strains on the flow of nerves; sciatica is then very common. As the piriformis muscle begins to move out of place, it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve running from your hip down to your foot. This restricts the flow of transmitters and decreases mobility….in some cases, prevents walking entirely.
This specialized form of therapy has benefited those suffering from grinding of the teeth (TMJ Disorders), headaches, whiplash, injuries affecting the neck, shoulder and arms, upper/lower back and knees/legs. Carpal tunnel, tendonitis and epicondylitis are also treated using this therapy. Relief for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and even Parkinson’s disease is also achievable.
For years I lived in constant pain not knowing if there would ever be a sustainable cure. After discovering Neuromuscular Re-Education treatments and Mr. Perrone, I now live pain free and am able to do all the activities I once enjoyed but couldn’t. S.F., ABQ
