And by that “Thing” we mean Pain and Discomfort! If it seems you have been struggling with unbearable acute and/or chronic ailments with no relief in sight, look no further than Spine & Muscle Rehabilitation! We specialize in a form of therapy that is somewhat unknown to many, but an extremely useful tool for those that have discovered the benefits and progressive results it provides.
The official terminology is Neuromuscular Re-Education Therapy or NMT for short. It is a form of pain management therapy that can treat a variety of conditions. Some of these include but are not limited to: fitness/sports injuries, post-surgery or car accident trauma, nerve damage, muscle strains, neck/shoulder pain, lower/upper back pain, headaches/migraines, temporomandibular jaw joint pain (TMJ disorders), carpal tunnel, tendonitis, epicondylitis, and sciatic nerve pain. Patients suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Fibromyalgia and Parkinson’s Disease have also found these treatments beneficial.
NMT treatments assist in the return of normal muscle movements and reinforce nerve signals for proper function. The theory is that when nerve signals are “retrained” or “re-educated” and appropriate muscle movements are repeated, movement patterns become automatic once again. This hands-on manual form of therapy has emerged into an efficient way to assess, treat and manage pain. The goal is to prevent the reoccurrence of long term, acute and chronic pain.
A friend recommended Spine & Muscle for my sciatica pain. That was over a year and a half ago and I have never felt better! Franco’s skill and knowledge has greatly improved my pain and I enjoy using these treatments as a monthly maintenance program for pain. L.V. Edgewood, NM
