What is Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR)?
Neuromuscular Reeducation (NMR) is a powerful soft tissue technique that focuses on rehabilitation of the soft tissue.
It is a non-invasive treatment, which helps in restoring proper muscle function and movement so that the body heals and performs at its optimum level. This treatment can give fast and lasting pain relief and restore the loss of function, which occurs due to injuries to the nerves, connective tissue, muscles and joints. It integrates the characteristics of trigger point therapy, sports massage, fascial release and active release techniques.
How does it differ from normal Manipulative therapy?
Not all manipulative therapists (such as chiropractors and osteopaths) focus on the soft tissue injuries, as they are more focused on manipulation of the joints in the spine. However, there are some injuries to the nervous system, spine and extremities where the adhesions in the muscles, tendons, etc. should be treated first.
Robert is trained in Neuromuscular Re-education (NMR) and is therefore very well versed in anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the human body. NMR therapists are also specialists in treating adhesions in the soft tissue with excellent results.
What are the aims of NMR?
The aims of NMR are:
- To break down the soft tissue adhesions, restrictions.
- To release the entrapped nerves.
- To restore the flexibility, strength and function of the muscles and tendons.
- To restore normal texture, tension, and movement of the tissue.
