Neuromuscular therapy is a comprehensive program of soft-tissue manipulation that balances the body's central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. The nervous system plays a central role in producing and perpetuating chronic pain, so the practitioner's understanding of nerve reflexes as well as their ability to do postural and structural assessments makes this technique particularly effective. Neuromuscular therapy targets chronic pain syndromes, such as tendonitis, whiplash injuries, migraine headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, distortion, and biomechanical dysfunction by understanding and alleviating the underlying cause. It is also used to locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, strengthen injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics, and flexibility to the tissues. Once NMT treatment has begun, it is recommended that a series of three to five sessions are completed within a week to achieve the best results.
