Many of us tend to forget about taking care of our physical health, especially during this time. Our bodies are complex yet astounding structures that require quite a bit of attention… especially if an acute or chronic injury and/or a trauma has occurred. At Spine & Muscle Rehabilitation, our Neuromuscular Re-Education Therapy (NMT) treatments can re-train or re-educate your muscles and teach your body how to operate at maximum capacity.
NMT is also considered trigger point myotherapy and has an endless variety of uses. NMT consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressures on all areas of the body while releasing pinched nerves and/or muscles and manually manipulating the soft tissues of the body while balancing out the central nervous system. In essence, it is re-training your muscles, your brain and your nerves on how to efficiently communicate and work together to improve movement, strength, balance and function, leading to relief from pain, aliments and/or discomfort.
Here are a few of the most common conditions NMT can transform: headaches/migraines, joint/nerve pain or damage, sports or fitness injury, muscle strains or tears, arthritis, sciatica issues, plantar fasciitis, carpel tunnel, tendonitis, epicondylitis, post-surgery complications, genetic health ailments, TMJ disorder, ALS, MS, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease and countless more.
I work in a physically demanding profession and seem to be in pain daily from pulling, pushing, lifting, bending etc. I decided to give Franco a chance after hearing about him from a friend and I am so glad I did. Every time I get a treatment, I feel a thousand times better and stronger. I want to thank Franco and his staff for giving me the relief from the pain and suffering I was experiencing. – S.W., Rio Rancho, NM
